The Case for a Better Earth: Episode 3

Sarah DotyStaff

Listen to “Episode Three: Tackling Law Reform and Taking the Ontario Government to Court” on Spreaker.

In this episode, lawyer Karen Campbell breaks down the federal government’s review of key environmental laws — an initiative that’s being hailed as a “once in a generation” opportunity to improve the laws that protect the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the communities where we live. She also has some suggestions on how you can make your voice heard too.

Next, we sit down with Ada Lockridge, one of our long-time clients. Earlier this month Ecojustice lawyers helped her file a lawsuit against the Ontario government for failing to address air pollution in her community of Aamjiwnaang First Nation in a timely fashion. Ada shares what it’s like to live in a place that has been called Canada’s “Chemical Valley” and what inspires her fight to defend her right to a healthy environment.
