A sample of representative responses to the consultation documents were collected and made available to the public in 2009.

"Statutory decision-makers (SDMs) -- the numerous officials within government who apply laws and policies to make decisions in individual cases -- are a critical component of an effective justice system. These decisions -- often about licensing, permits or benefits or other entitlements -- can have significant impacts and need to be fair and just for both the affected individuals and businesses and the wider public. Fair and just decisions can also reduce the need, time and expense of court or other appeals. For this reason, the Ministry of Attorney General is undertaking a Review of SDMs' Powers, Procedures and Authorities to ensure they are clear, consistent, accessible and proportionate."--Office website as viewed Sept. 5, 2008: http://www.gov.bc.ca/ajo/popt/whats_new.htm
