After references in the Saskatchewan and Ontario courts that upheld the federal legislation, Attorney General of Ontario v. Attorney General of Canada is currently before the Supreme Court of Canada. Counsel will present on the issues arising and the implications of the federal environmental legislation and the provincial challenges to it, and whether we must choose between federalism and confronting climate change.
