What exactly are the changes to environmental law proposed by the 2012 Budget (Bill c-38)? Combing through a massive bill deters people from learning what it does, which is the whole point. Fortunately, our friends at Ecojustice and West Coast Environmental Law have identified Top 10 Concerns with the bill.
For more on the Environmental Laws Matter campaign to save (and better) Canada’s Environmental Laws, see http://www.envirolawsmatter.ca/. You can learn about the principles of good environmental assessment, read key news stories about the federal bill, and take action.
