Maintaining SuperNatural B.C. for Our Children: Selected Law Reform Proposals

Our current laws have failed to keep pace with B.C.’s booming resource industries and population growth. In some cases, our laws are actually weaker than they were a feW years ago. In this webinar, the guest speakers will discuss specific recommendations for changing B.C. environmental laws. These recommendations will draw on chapters from the new book Maintaining SuperNatural BC for Our Children: Selected Law Reform Proposals, which was published by the University of Victoria’s Environmental Law Centre in December 2012. Featuring three contributing authors of the book, this webinar will explore solutions to water-specific issues that have been proposed by environmental law experts. These recommendations will be presented with the hope of triggering both debate and consideration, and sparking new law reform ideas from other experts in the field.
