An “owner of a future or contingent interest” described in s. 284(2)(b) is a narrower and more restricted category of persons than a “person interested in land” described in s. 284(2)(a). The former category would describe a person owning a legal interest or estate in land, be that interest or estate a future or contingent one. The latter is a wider category and might include persons having only an equitable estate or interest—one perhaps requiring not only the happening of some future event to bring about its vesting but, as in this case, the launching of some proceedings to enforce an equitable claim (Nicoll v. Oakes, 1979 CanLII 736 (BC SC)).
