Canadians want strong environmental laws to protect our communities, ecosystems, health, and economy. Environmental law is about making sure the environment and the economy are equally protected and promoted, not just because we need them both, but because one begets the other.

Through significant changes to Canada’s environmental laws the federal government has put private corporate and industry priorities ahead of the core values of Canadians.

Recklessly promoting industry at all costs is not the same as building a sustainable economy. Instead of weakening environmental laws, the government should be upholding its core responsibility to safeguard families and nature from pollution, toxic contamination and other environmental problems.

Whether it is monitoring toxic contamination, preventing oil spills, sustaining fisheries' resources, creating national parks, or protecting ecosystems and species from extinction, the federal government is responsible for using environmental laws to promote healthy environments, people and economies.
