Ryan here (author of this piece). This is a valid point and I do think approvals vary by region and land manager discretion. BC's trail policy has been all over the map (pun intended). Over the years we've gone from resistance to acceptance to approvals to provincial MTB trail tourism/promotion. That said, trail approval is always a moving target and changing. Recently, there seems to be more resistance again, concern about trail density, and more resistance from First Nations in the absence of BC getting its act together regarding treaties. As a volunteer trail builder, the process and wait are a barrier but can be overcome. Key is to work with you local trail society, of course.
