Cleaner, Greener, Healthier

A Prescription for Stronger Canadian Environmental Laws and Policies

Canadians are tired of getting sick from toxins in their air, food, water, and consumer products. In Cleaner, Greener, Healthier David Boyd sets out to remedy Canada's environmental health problems. He begins by assessing the environmental burden of disease, identifies its unequal distribution, and estimates the associated economic costs. He then compares Canada's environmental laws and policies with those in the US, Australia, and the EU, delivering a provocative diagnosis of the causes of Canada's second-rate standards. Finally, he prescribes legal remedies that will enable Canada to catch up with the world's environmental leaders – without harming the economy.
