Since its founding in 1991, Canada’s EcoJustice, formerly known as the Sierra Legal Defence Fund, has lodged many groundbreaking legal challenges over alleged violations of specific environmental or public health protections.

The strategy, says Devon Page, the group’s top lawyer, is to look for ways to build legal precedent for stronger protections.
