Canadian law allows any citizen to lay charges against a polluter or other
environmental offender where there is evidence of an offence. Enforcing
Environmental Law: A Guide to Private Prosecution, 2nd edition will help
readers determine when private prosecution is the right tool to address
environmental harm, and provides a step-by-step guide to the process, from
laying charges through trial and appeal. In some cases Alternative tools are
more effective, and these are explained. The book also provides guidance on
building a case and finding assistance, and includes a proposal for law and
policy reform.
