Doc Batarang: I don't understand how they could've retained those types of rights. In Canada, everything below a certain depth belongs to 'the Queen', but in reality this means that the government exercises total control of mineral rights and can lease them to exploitation companies. Because this happened long before our constitution was patriated, I'd have assumed that this was a feature of constitutional monarchy from the UK.This is a case where, if read literally, it makes perfect sense except that the social and legal realities mean that it's totally absurd.
