What a surprise!

I was surprised to read in the SST that someone was claiming the Treaty settlement process is moving too fast.

It is in the interests of both claimants and the Crown to have settlements happer sooner rather than later (as long as full and final). So who could be advocating that they are moving too fast?

Oh, now it makes sense. He is a Treaty lawyer. His $107,000 legal aid for just one claim, is not benefiting him at all he claims.

He strangely says issues of murder and rape can take a long time in court normally as justification for a ten year delay, yet his litigation has been on fisheries settlements where the arguments are purely over the allocation model.
