Summary: 

Without a strong suite of environmental laws, we are vulnerable to the escalating impacts of climate change, irresponsible resource development and the erosion of democracy. To address the shortfalls in our current environmental regulatory system, ten of Canada’s leading non-profit environmental organizations working on national policy issues developed key environmental law priorities, which were shared with all political parties in early 2015. This publication provides summaries of the Conservative, Liberal, NDP, and Green Parties’ main positions on key environmental law priorities identified by those groups (updated to October 6, 2015).
