Cleaner, Greener, Healthier
A Prescription for Stronger Canadian Environmental Laws and PoliciesBook - 2015
In Cleaner, Greener, Healthier, David R. Boyd sets out to remedy Canada's environmental health problems. He begins by assessing the environmental burden of disease, identifies its unequal distribution, and estimates the associated economic costs. He then compares Canada's environmental laws and policies with those in the US, Australia, and the EU, delivering a provocative diagnosis of the causes of Canada's second-rate standards. Finally, he prescribes legal remedies that will enable Canada to catch up with the world's environmental leaders while delivering substantial health and economic benefits.
