Kids Who Are, Of Course, So Much Smarter Than Everyone Else Look To Sue Canadian Government Over ‘Climate Change’

Seriously, all their worldly experience makes them perfect to sue over something that “may” happen in 50-100 years, despite all the prognostications over the past 30+ years having failed

The kids aren’t alright

Millennials are blamed for all sorts of contemporary social ills, but there is at least one societal issue for which they can pin the blame on their elders: climate change. A group of youth based in Quebec are applying to bring a class action suit against the federal government at the Superior Court of Québec. The youth are claiming that the failures of successive federal governments to appropriately tackle climate change is resulting in charter rights violations.

Should the effort succeed, it would mark a significant shift in climate litigation in Canada.

The Quebec lawsuit follows the precedent of other citizen-led lawsuits and, in particular, a youth-led lawsuit that has been launched in the United States. In that one, American children are arguing that the under-regulation of greenhouse gases and subsidies made to the oil and gas industry are exacerbating climate change and thereby violating the youth’s constitutional rights, as delineated by the public trust doctrine.

Similarly, in Canada, Enjeu Québec outlines how both previous and present governments have failed to effectively legislate climate change, which they say, will result in charter violations. They criticize earlier governments for not setting ambitious enough targets and the present one for not implementing effective policies to meet current reduction targets.

The filing even goes so far as to suggest that the current government is hypocritical by claiming Canada is a climate change champion at international forums while domestically dodging the issue. Failing to adequately stem the rise of greenhouse gases will, the youth argue, affect their Charter rights, particularly the principle of fundamental justice as found under Section 7. “To limit in the very short term any economic loss is totally disproportionate in comparison to the gravity of the physical, moral and material harm that affects and will affect all members of the class in the short, medium and long term,” they write. They are also basing arguments on the right to a healthful environment as found under s.46.1 of the Quebec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms.

They’ll also be the first ones to complain and caterwaul on social media when there are even fewer job opportunities for themselves, that the ability to afford someplace to live is even further out of reach, and that the cost of living has skyrocketed.

There are times when you almost want to see these nuisance suits succeed, just to see the reaction. Remember this on Ocare?

“I was laughing at Boehner — until the mail came today,”

“I really don’t like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family’s pocket each year, that’s otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy.”

“Of course, I want people to have health care,” Vinson said. “I just didn’t realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally.”

“Of course I want to save the planet from a tiny increase in global temps. I just didn’t realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally after my lawsuit.”

    Millennials in Ontario discovered under the Ontario Carbon Tax that the wealth being redistributed was theirs!
    Theonly leader campaigning for the conservative leadership who did not amit that agw was real was the one who won and then won the election. He promply ended Cap-n-Trade and now Carbon Tax.

    This lawsuit will end the minute the defense asks the plaintiffs what the current global temberature is. What it was last year, and 5 years ago and 10 years ago. What the Polar sea ice coverage is now and last year and ten years ago.
    The theory is that Co2 warms the planet. Yet after going from 250 PPM in 1948 to 410 PPM the planet has warmed far less than predicted and has even been cooling since 2010.Millennials in Ontario discovered under the Ontario Carbon Tax that the wealth being redistributed was theirs!

    Was it Justin Trudeau who withdrew from the Paris climate agreement?

    Despite years of lofty promises from government officials, a recent Auditors General report shows that Canada has made little progress towards its climate action goals. This follows a United Nations (UN) report that says Canada is in danger of missing its 2030 Paris Agreement targets by a wide margin.

    What the lawfare brats are attempting to do is to use the power of a nation’s courts to seize political power in a country, to have an unelected judge, with lifetime tenure in the United States, to enforce what the lawfare brats want, wholly undercutting the legislatures and executives.

    The obvious answer: investigate them all, and then throw them in jail for drug law violations, which we know they’ve all committed.
