08 Feb The Duck Stops Here! Do tailings ponds trump migratory bird protection? (Webinar)
The Syncrude ducks trial last year was among the most sensational environmental trials of the last decade, resulting in the most significant environmental fine in Canada.
This webinar will focus on what the trial means in the context of migratory bird protection and what it says about the legality of tailings ponds under the Migratory Birds Convention Act. What issues did the Syncrude trial resolve and what issues remain unanswered in the wake of the decision?
Join Laura Bowman, Staff Counsel, between noon and 1:00pm on February 28th, 2011 for this webinar.
