CELA has provided their testimony before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development on Bill S-5 Amendments to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999.
The emission of toxic substances to the environment is a serious and growing problem globally, as well as in Canada. In materials we submitted to members of the Committee, CELA focused on the emission of cancer-causing agents to illustrate that Bill S-5 will not help solve the problem unless the Bill improves the approach of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) to pollution prevention.
