Ecojustice/Ontario Nature

On Tuesday, April 19, I spent the day at Osgoode Hall to hear the appeal of an Ontario Divisional Court decision on the Endangered Species Act. The appeal was launched by Ontario Nature, who were represented by Ecojustice lawyers, and we’ve supported both groups in their educational programs. At issue is the right of the cabinet to set regulations that give wide-ranging exemptions to major industries. ON argued that these exemptions are so broad that they gut the power of the Act and contradict the spirit and letter of the Act. We look forward to the decision.
