Saving the Future: Climate Action and the Rights of Nature
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. A landmark case is currently making its way through the legal system in Canada, the very first of its kind. A group of seven young eco-activists are taking the Ontario government to task for failing to live up to several climate change targets. But it's the argument these young mavericks use that's truly revolutionary. It’s the first time in Canadian history that climate change has been cited as a violation of a Canadian citizen's charter rights.
