Chronicling the Destruction of Canadian Environmental Laws

Canada’s Track Record on Environmental Laws 2011 – 2015 was released by West Coast Environmental Law on October 14. On the same day, Centre Québécois du droit de l’environnement released the french language version, Bilan des changements apportés aux lois environnementales fédérales. The report catalogues “the repeal or amendment of most of Canada’s foundational environmental laws since 2011”, beginning with Bills C-38 and C-45 in 2012. It notes that socio-economic considerations can now be more easily ignored or excluded under the new Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, damaging Canadian livelihoods. A summary at Desmog Blog and the website Environmental Laws Matter complement the report.
