+1 on David's point. Unless "a timely manner" is defined somewhere within
the NRPM and a limit is provided, it's open to interpretation as the
interpreting party sees fit.

In addition to this, I'm personally not a fan of adding the "to the extent
permitted and manner provided by applicable law" wording, because again:
which legislation is being applied here, from which jurisdiction and by
which party? This is also up to interpretation which without being defined
may not result in the intended actions or meaning.

Regards,
Peter Potvin | Executive Director
