Recent Cases and Key Issues in Environmental Law: What You May Not Have Noticed (or Expected)

  • Federal regulatory review: an update on the CEAA, National Energy Board, Fisheries Act and Navigation Protection Act
  • Species at risk: potential stand-off between B.C. and the feds, and pending B.C. species-at-risk legislation
  • Commercial issues, including indemnities and remediation end-points
  • Social acceptance and Crown consultation, including recent cases on these issues
  • Enforcement and litigation, including recent cases on damages in pollution cases and “bigger and bigger” environmental penalties
