My family heritage is important to me, since I have so little family left. We want to complete our research. Plus, history and archival history are important in general. There is zero reason not to release this. Please do it now.
We have been anticipating this for a long time. It is valuable information that can be useful even before the indexing is complete. Large numbers of people have volunteered to help. The Library and Archives Canada has been vague when it should be transparent and detailed. Among other things, it would enhance family values, especially for those researching WWI vets.
