This book aims to show how environmental class actions work in Canada. The book aims to be practical, not theoretical or critical, and my hope is to help lawyers, in house counsel, judges, law professors and students, and even members of the public understand how class actions can (or cannot) help to resolve environmental problems.
Developments in class action in general are the subject of intense scrutiny by law firms, and major law firms will issue client alerts on class actions issues. The aim is to give the readers a complete exposé of the specific issues that they are most interested in. For example, in house counsel working for a railway company will be interested by the chapters
on Railway Nuisances or Train Derailment and Spills.
