THUNDER BAY – CLIMATE – Join the Blue Dot movement for an intimate town hall meeting with David Suzuki and other distinguished speakers to discuss strengthening Ontario’s Environmental Bill of Rights.
When the Ontario Environmental Bill of Rights was introduced in 1993 it was at the forefront of environmental law. But more than 20 years later, the bill has remained largely unchanged while pressure on Ontario’s environment continues to increase. Now, the government of Ontario has opened a 120-day review period and is seeking public consultation on how to improve the bill.
David Suzuki, Faisal Moola (the David Suzuki Foundation’s director general, Ontario and northern Canada) and others will discuss critical improvements needed to bring this important provincial law into the 21st century.
