OTTAWA – As Bill C-28, an act to modernize Canada’s primary environmental law (the Canadian Environmental Protection Act), was tabled six weeks ago but has yet to be debated – and with less than a month until summer recess for this parliamentary session – the following groups are urging House Leader Hon. Pablo Rodriguez to get Bill C-28 back on the parliamentary agenda without delay.

  • Breast Cancer Action Quebec
  • Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE)
  • Canadian Environmental Law Association
  • David Suzuki Foundation
  • Ecojustice
  • Environmental Defence
  • Friends of the Earth Canada
  • Health and Environment Justice Support
  • New Brunswick Lung Association
  • Prevent Cancer Now
  • Women’s Healthy Environments Network
