The Environmental Bill of Rights is a proposal meant to protect the environment in Prince Edward Island and those who live in it by providing the platform, the tools for Islanders to be actively involved in the process of protecting the environment, holding companies accountable for damaging the environment.

Why should PEI Islanders care about the Environmental Bill of Rights (EBR)?

If you care about the environment and you would like to take action to protect it for your own good, community good and future generations good, then this bill will support your mission.

Here are ten reasons why you should care:

  1. It would ensure our right to live in a healthy environment
  2. It could empower us, the islanders, to participate in more of the decision-making process for any projects that might affect our climate and environment
  3. The bill would provide us tools and a solid platform to properly protect the environment
  4. There would be an actual person (an Environmental Commissioner) to contact in case you are concerned about future issues, bills, and projects related to the environment
  5. It would give us the right to pursue legal action for environmental misconduct
  6. The bill would create accountability for corporations, businesses, and the government regarding pollution, and other actions that disrupt the ecological balance of our environment
  7. It would contribute to our equality by preventing socioeconomic environmental racism for indigenous people and other marginalized communities
  8. It would assist with issues secondary to environmental impacts such as access to clean drinking water and clean air
  9. The EBR would ensure a sustainable future for the environment, and for future generations
  10. It would bring environmental concerns to the forefront of local news and political discussions, benefit eco-education in schools, and increase the overall conversational presence throughout the island
