Selected Law Reform Proposals

Edited by Calvin Sandborn

From the editor's preface:
BC environmental laws are in urgent need of reform...

The stakes are high.  Yet current laws have not only failed to keep pace with our booming resource industries and population growth – our laws are actually weaker than they were a few years ago.  The articles in this book aim to remedy this by recommending specific changes to BC environmental laws.

This book is put forward as an educational service to inform the public, government and decision makers about solutions that have been proposed by environmental law experts. Their recommendations are presented here for public education, debate and consideration – and to trigger law reform ideas from others.

Ultimately, we hope that this book will enrich the discussion about how laws can be changed to better maintain Natural British Columbia for our children.
