Following up on a previous post… the Ontario government was supposed to release a report on environmental penalties on March 31. Now April 6, no report is a bit of a disappointment but I guess they can be forgiven with all the Green Energy Act work they must have been doing.
Why the interest in enviromental penalties? Well the case law around the penalties is what everyone is waiting for. Following the penalties that have been levied and what arguements are made if they’re taken to court will help guide how the court is going to respond to this type of absolute liability environmental law.
If the report comes out, I’ll add a post and a link.
