Environmental Bill of Rights
On April 5, 2019, I again tabled [see video] my private members bill calling for a Canadian Environmental Bill of Rights, and I am happy to report it will be up for debate in the spring of 2019. [See text.]
My bill would extend to all Canadians the right to a clean ecologically balanced environment, impose duties on the federal government to take actions to enact and enforce protections and extend rights to Canadians to environmental information, to participate in decisions impacting the environment and to take action to force government action.
Let's make this bill a reality!
