Environmental Law

Book - 1997
Rate this:
Of serious and persistent concern to most Canadians, environmental protection is governed by a complex and controversial legal regime that is affected by constitutional division of jurisdiction, corporate and taxation laws, international trade law, and traditional private law doctrines such as torts and contract law. Statutes and regulations that are specifically designed to protect the environment, and the institutional frameworks within which they operate, are often the subject of competing political agendas. This authoritative book describes the evolution and current practice of environmental law and policy in Canada. It will be of interest to concerned individuals, environmental groups, corporate officials, technical and scientific experts, public servants, and legal professionals whose practice is increasingly affected by environmental considerations.
