Canada has abundant natural wealth, beautiful landscapes, vast forests, and thousands of rivers and lakes. The land defines Canadians as a people, yet the country has one of the industrialized world's worst environmental records. Building on his previous book, The Environmental Rights Revolution (2012), David R. Boyd describes how recognizing the constitutional right to a healthy environment could have a transformative impact by empowering citizens, holding governments and industry accountable, and improving Canada's green record. This important and provocative book provides a road map to protect human health, the well-being of the planet, and the interests of future generations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Right to a Healthy Environment is a comprehensive, meticulously researched and brilliantly organized analysis that will strengthen scholars, politicians, and activists alike. It is a clarion call to action in a war against our most terrible enemies, our own lethargy, short-sightedness, and complicity in the destruction of the nature we profess to revere. -- Elizabeth Abbott * International Journal of Environmental Studies, June 2013 *
