Summary
Boyd, an environmental lawyer and professor at Simon Fraser University, explores the arguments for and against adding environmental provisions to the Canadian constitution. He reviews the history of such proposals going back to the late '60s, provincial environmental bills of rights, focusing on the practical effects of recognizing these rights. His focus on the Canadian constitution is not just personal, but emanates from a scholarly interest in understanding Canada among the majority of nations that do recognize the environment in their constitutions and highest laws. He identifies these other countries and considers the legal and ecological impact these provisions have made. The final chapters describe the specific tangible impacts constitutional recognition of environmental rights would have in Canada, explores the political and legal avenues for achieving this recognition, and offer a draft "Canadian Charter of Environmental Rights and Responsibilities."
