Comprehensively covers all aspects of environmental offences in Canada, from the initial investigation through to trial and sentencing. It draws on case law from across the country and key regulatory guidance documents used at both the provincial and federal levels. Revised and updated, this service reflects the not-yet-in-force amendments made to federal environmental laws by the Environmental Enforcement Act, S.C. 2009, c.14, preparing you for their implications. Inside find reported and unreported cases on:

  • Due diligence
  • Sentencing
  • Directors' and officers' liability
  • Constitutional and Charter arguments
  • Environmental audits
  • Evidence and procedural issues
  • Solicitor-client privilege claims
  • Interviewing suspects

According to Stan Berger, the learned author of The Prosecution and Defence of Environmental Offences, Vol. III, §7.305: Jail terms are generally considered by prosecutors and imposed by courts for behaviour that exhibits the hallmarks of crime — that is, deliberation, recklessness, stealth and/or significant harm." Per Masse J. in R v. Sinclair (2009 CarswellOnt 4894) at par. 131."
