Climate change. Environmental toxins. Ozone depletion. Mass extinctions and species at risk. The growing recognition of the fragility of the world's ecosystems and the growing emphasis placed on sustainable development and responsible resource management have placed the environment at the forefront of Canada's social, political and, inevitably, legal agenda. The reach of environmental laws can now extend into everyday commercial transactions, corporate takeovers, real estate development, and criminal prosecution – virtually every area of legal practice.
