Environmental issues have become quite polarized in Canada and citizens across the nation have struggled to figure out the right approach to solving some of the pressing environmental concerns. David R Boyd’s provides a new perspective on this debate as his book dives deep into the Canadian constitution and the environment. Boyd is a leading environmental lawyer who has written about environmental rights on numerous occasions both in print and in newspaper articles. Boyd argues firmly that Canada must entrench environmental rights into the constitution to have the best chance at creating and maintaining a healthy environment for future generations. He demonstrates this by examining the history of constitutional issues with respect to the environment but also makes a comparative analysis between Canada and the nearly 150 countries around the world that have some environmental rights constitutionally entrenched.
