The Landowner's Dilemma: are reasonable expectations obsolete?

Sep 28 2010 - 6:15pm to 8:00pm

The Faculty of Law presents

Professor Joseph L. Sax

Berkeley Law, University of California

“Climate change" and “loss of global biodiversity” are the watchwords of our time. Is the price we must pay to address these a radical revision in what it means to own land? Is this the time-like the Industrial Revolution, the end of slavery, the economic recognition of married women as individuals-when long-standing conceptions of ownership had to give way, and the world of law was made anew?

Sierra Club Canada calls on Canadian Chamber of Commerce to back action on climate change

OTTAWA – Today, Sierra Club Canada wrote to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce asking it to withdraw the template letter it recently distributed to its members. Chamber members were asked to send the letter to Senators urging them to oppose Bill C-311, the Climate Change Accountability Act. The letter is a classic example of doublespeak. While it claims "we must respond to climate change," it suggests Canada do it by developing our energy sector. In other words, vote against science-based emissions targets because we must expand oil, gas, coal and the tar sands.
