`Communication on the suspension of negotiations` means a communication on the suspension of negotiations which one party to an agreement in principle has addressed to the other parties; If established, the task force would “develop a strategy to address the considerable resource exploitation problems affecting LRLs and their farmers and ranchers in the B.C Peace River region”, and examine (among other things) whether the delegation agreement between LAC and the Oil and Gas Commission was the appropriate approach. (b) if a notification of suspension of negotiations has come into force earlier, an agreement in principle between the parties to the agreement to resume negotiations becomes effective.38 For the purposes of this Act, the Commission may enter into agreements with the government, a local government, a First Nation government, Canada or a public authority. 26 1. The Commission may enter into an agreement with any of the following persons allowing a First Nation government or public authority to exercise all or part of the Commission`s power to rule on applications for use or subdivision: 8. Does the Commission enter into an agreement under subsection (1) (c) with respect to the countries of the First Nation, that agreement or other agreement under that Act must define the term “owner” for the purposes of subsection (b)(i) of the definition of “owner” in section 1(1). 2. An agreement referred to in paragraph 1 between the Commission and a public authority may exempt from the application requirement a non-agricultural use in a given area under the authority`s competence, provided that the Authority carries out verifications and reports to the Commission in accordance with the agreement. 2. Where the final agreement of a contractual First Nation provides that the contracting countries of the First Nation may not be designated as agricultural land without the agreement of the Treaty First Nation, the Commission may not exercise the power referred to in paragraph 1 in respect of those contract territories without the agreement of the First Nation of the Treaty.

Bill 21 [of 2004] expands the Board`s ability to delegate its powers to authorize the use and subdivision of agricultural land outside of agriculture. . The delegation to the Commissioner for Oil and Gas for decisions on the development of oil and gas on agricultural land is an example of this. It raises the potential problem of delegating decisions to bodies that are not very interested or have a mandate contrary to the Commission`s mandate. (b) contemplates that legislative authority over all or part of the proposed residential areas described in the agreement be conferred on the First Nation through a final agreement or governance agreement and a provincial or Canadian order; Oil and gas development has expanded significantly to the peace river region, which is rich in arable land and rich in oil. Despite concerns, the Farmland Commission signed a new delegation agreement in December 2017 reaffirming the powers of the Oil and Gas Commission to grant authorisations for use outside agriculture. . . .
