CELA support the passing of Bill C-230: An Act Respecting the Development of a National Strategy to Redress Environmental Racism as opportunity for the government to address the inequities facing vulnerable communities, particularly racialized communities facing harm from environmental pollution and polluting practices by ensuring remedies are integrated effectively into existing environmental legislation or passing additional legislation and policies.
CELA is pleased that today’s federal budget contains ambitious targets and new programs to fight climate change and protect biodiversity, while considering impacts on vulnerable communities and workers. These are all important building blocks for a Green and Just Recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
