Summary
This episode of the Green Interview features Larry Kowalchuk, a human rights and environmental lawyer who is representing two groups of New Brunswick citizens in fundamental and dramatic legal challenges to the fossil fuel industry and the governments that support them. The New Brunswick Anti-Shale Gas Alliance argues that the development of unconventional shale gas and oil deposits poses so great a threat to human health and the environment that it violates Section 7 of the Canadian Charter or Rights and Freedoms, which guarantees the right to life and security of the person. The People’s lawsuit argues that the two governments and their courts have attacked the rights of citizens and have granted illegal approval to the industry to develop shale gas, ignore environmental protection laws and unlawfully use police and malicious lawsuits to suppress and silence protectors of civil and human rights. Both suits seek to halt such development until it can be shown to be safe, if indeed it ever can be..
