The Supreme Court of Canada released a landmark decision on 25 March upholding the constitutionality of the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act (GGPPA), in a 6-3 decision with 4 sets of reasons. The majority of the Court determined that the GGPPA “sets minimum national standards of GHG price stringency to reduce GHG emissions.”Lawyers involved in arguing the case provided a briefing on the decision and discuss its significance for Canadian constitutional law and the implications for climate and energy policy in Canada.
