How can the law be used to protect the environment in Northern Ontario and across Canada? On March 25th, join students from Bora Laskin Faculty of Law as we explore two legal topics impacting Northern communities.

Adam de Luca and Petri Bailey are students volunteering with the Canadian Environmental Law Association and Environment North. The opportunity is in partnership with Pro Bono Students Canada, a national organization with an aim of furthering access to justice across the country. Adam will discuss the legal principles surrounding the storage of nuclear fuel bundles in Northern Ontario. Petri will share some insights regarding the impact of a Canadian Pacific derailment that spilled large quantities of plastic pellets or “nurdles” into Lake Superior.

Here are some additional details about the event:
