Corporate Rules: The Real World of Business Regulation in Canada

Canada has put serious effort into protecting the public through regulation of corporate behaviour in key sectors of our economy such as transportation, energy, health, finance, construction. But have our public regulators been captured by the corporations they regulate? Join a panel of experts, including CELA’s Executive Director and Counsel Theresa McClenaghan, whose new book (being launched at this event) explores this question and suggests how to ensure the public interest is protected.
