15 Children Sue Canada over Climate Change

HeadlineOct 29, 2019

Plaintiff: “I’m suing the Canadian government because their inaction is costing me my health and my future.”

That’s one of the 15 plaintiffs whose lawsuit argues that the Canadian government continued to contribute to greenhouse gas emissions despite knowing for decades that these emissions fuel climate change and disproportionately harm children.
