Summary: 

The federal government's budget announcement in late March 2012 and the Budget Bill (C-38) that followed in April 2012 were surrounded with statements from the government on the intent of environmental law rollbacks. West Coast Environmental Law translates some of the 'myths' perpetuated by the federal government to present the reality: environmental law changes gut Canada’s long-standing environmental laws and put Canadians health, safety, and environment at risk to serve the financial interests of big oil and mining companies.
