Overreaching control of land assures misallocation of resources in BC. Our private areas are strips along rivers, the Fraser delta, some farmable country in the Peace River and a pleasant chunk of Vancouver Island. The owned lands look like flecks of paint on this map of BC.
Compare crown land in Ontario. The settled south is mostly owned by individuals. There will be no large scale exclusion or give away here. Northern Ontario is a different story.
