The Constitutionality of Canada's Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act: A Panel Discussion
The David Asper Centre for Constitutional Rights' Climate Justice Working Group is pleased to present a panel discussion (online webinar) on November 16th, 2020 at 12:45p.m. about the constitutionality of Canada's Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act.

The constitutionality of the Act has been a subject of debate in courts across the country and was most recently the subject of multi-day hearing at the Supreme Court of Canada. The constitutional challenge at the SCC was brought by the governments of Ontario, Alberta and Saskatchewan, who were joined by many interveners who advanced diverse and interesting perspectives.

At the event, the Climate Justice working group members will be speaking to counsel for the Attorney General of Canada (Sharlene Telles-Langdon), counsel for the the Attorney General of Ontario (Joshua Hunter) as well as to counsel for Ecojustice (Joshua Ginsberg) and counsel for the Anishinabek Nation and the United Chiefs and Councils of Mnidoo Mnising (Patricia Lawrence).
