Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s government broke the law by not holding public consultations before it scrapped the province’s cap and trade program, an Ontario court has found.
According to Ontario’s Environmental Bill of Rights (EBR), the minister must provide for public notice and comment on proposed regulations and legislation that could have “a significant effect on the environment” at least thirty days before implementation.
One Ontario judge noted that the decision handed Friday “makes a point broader than its four corners: it makes the point that the government is not above the law and may not insulate itself from judicial review when it acts unlawfully.” #onpoli
Tom Mueller, author of Crisis of Conscience: Whistleblowing in an Age of Fraud, out Oct. 1 : interviewed about 200 whistle-blowers for his book and found that the “overwhelming majority” haven’t been able to work again because they were blackballed in their industries; perhaps the most famous recent American whistle-blower, Edward Snowden, is still in exile in Moscow. “It’s career suicide,” he says, arguing the treatment of whistle-blowers in real life is more of how society views them, versus the praise they receive at a distance or on a screen. He argues there’s a two-faced attitude towards whistle-blowers in American society. “We have a completely dual attitude,” he says. “We applaud them in the theater but we go home and allow industries and governments to destroy them, their careers, their health, their lives.”Source: Time Magazine
