Webinar with Julie Gelfand, Commissioner of Environment and Sustainable Development on her Fall 2018 Report
The 2018 reports that will be discussed include:
• Toxic Substances – “The government does not know how well it is meeting its goal of protecting Canadians from the risk of toxic substances”
• Protecting Marine Mammals – “The government did little to protect marine mammals from the risk of commercial fishing and navigation until recently.”
• Sustainable Development Strategies (specifically on strategic environmental assessment) – “The government does not know how well it is meeting its goal of protecting Canadians from the risk of toxic substances”
• Environmental Petitions (with a number of interesting case studies, e.g., Agenda 2030 and nuclear liability insurance) – “Petitioners not satisfied by ministers’ answers to questions about the environment and sustainable development.”
