The class action lawsuit you’ve heard Mikaeel talk about here is La Rose et al. vs. Her Majesty the Queen. It argues these youth are already being harmed by climate change, and the federal government is violating their rights to life, liberty and security and is failing to protect essential public trust resources. The youth also allege that their government’s conduct violates their right to equality, since youth are disproportionately affected by the effects of the climate emergency.
You can read more about that lawsuit and get involved in your own way tackling climate change here.
Now, as we come to the end of this unforgettable year, we must let you know we’ve come to our final episode. We would like to thank all the tweens and teens who had the courage to share their stories with us. Many of them had to become their own recording engineers during the pandemic, too. Hopefully their journey into podcasting doesn’t end here.
Thank you for subscribing to CBC Mic Drop. It has been such an honour to be able to share these stories with you.
