Rona’s Awesome Clean Air Act

An environmental group is planning to take the Conservative government to court because inaction on greenhouse gas emissions not only disregards Canada’s obligations under the Kyoto Protocol, but is also a breach of the Canadian Enviornmental Protection Act (CEPA). Claiming that the government has been acting “illegally” for some time with regards to GHG emissions, the Friends of the Earth Canada is planning to take the government to court.

While this seems to give Friends of the Earth good media coverage, and will of course bring attention to this issue, I question what value a ruling against the government would accomplish; it might make them look bad, but if the government didn’t want to change its ways, it wouldn’t. Any thoughts ont his process?

Soon to come; Rona and the Ronettes on the Air Farce; don’t miss it!!
