The Right to a Healthy Environment in Canada
William H. Gates Hall
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
David R. Boyd is one of Canada’s leading environmental lawyers. He is an Adjunct Professor in Resource and Environmental Management at Simon Fraser University, Associate Faculty in the School of Environment and Sustainability at Royal Roads University, and was recently a Trudeau Scholar at the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability at the University of British Columbia. Boyd has advised many governments–from Canada to Sweden—on environmental issues. He is the former Executive Director of the Sierra Legal Defence Fund (now Ecojustice), Canada’s leading public interest environmental law organization.
Canadian lawyer, advocate, and scholar David R. Boyd will discuss selections from his newest book, The Right to a Healthy Environment. Boyd will explore Canada's history of failed efforts to recognize the right to a healthy environment through laws, constitutions, treaties, or court decisions. As part of Diversity Week, Boyd will pay particular attention to matters of environmental justice and how that dynamic differs in Canada and in the US.
