Thanks, Mr. Chair, when I look at clause -- sorry, we're on clause 22, or sorry 20. I am trying to determine why the wording in 22(12) which says, "For greater certainty, a designation made under this section does not affect any interests in minerals issued in respect of the area in the designation before the designation is made, including any right of." I'm trying to understand why we needed to make that change, Mr. Chair. Can I get an explanation from the Minister's staff? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Chair. It's just a for greater clarity clause that accompanies 22.12, because section 22 is the process; 22 sets out the designation of the restricted area and how the designation happens, but it's actually section 20 that affects the prohibitions during the time of the designation, so it's just an accompaniment to 22.12 for greater clarity. They're both for certainty and clarity. Thank you, Mr. Chair.

Thank you, Mr. Chair. I have a motion that clause 22 of Bill 34 be amended by:

(a) striking out "settlement lands" in (1), and substituting a "a settlement area";

(b) deleting paragraphs 3(b) and substituting the following:

(b) if an area is within or overlaps with a settlement area or the asserted traditional territory of an Indigenous government or organization after the Minister engages with all applicable Indigenous governments or organizations; and

(c) striking out the "settlement lands" wherever it appears in paragraph 4(b) and substituting "a settlement area."

Thank you, Mr. Chair.

Thank you, Mr. Chair. The intent of this motion is to change the term "settlement lands" to "settlement areas" as we did in motion 1. This motion would ensure language in the bill is consistent with my previous motion to change the definition of "settlement lands" to refer "settlement areas." Thank you, Mr. Chair.
