Ecojustice is suing the B.C. government for failing to present plans to achieve several key climate targets, as required by its own climate change legislation.
This failure undermines the B.C. government’s climate leadership credentials, falls foul of its legal commitments to transparency and accountability on climate action, and risks locking the province into a high carbon future.
B.C. continues to emit more and more carbon pollution while the climate crisis is battering the province. With the increased frequency of deadly weather events caused by the climate crisis, anything less than full transparency about their plans is simply unacceptable.
British Columbians have a right to expect that their government follow the letter of the laws they author.
