Bummer: Canadian Court Rejects Climate Kids’ Lawsuit As Being “Too Political”

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Nice to see a court act within the Law, rather than their personal beliefs, for a change

Climate change too ‘political’ for court

Fifteen Canadian children and youth who sought a declaration of dereliction of duty on the part of the Canadian government in dealing with climate change have lost their legal challenge.

Backed in the court challenge by three environmental organizations, including the David Sukuzi Foundation, the youth in Le Rose versus Canada were seeking an order from the Federal Court of Canada that their charter rights, and rights of future generations, were being infringed by Canada’s inaction on climate change under a public trust doctrine.

So, pretty much an astroturfed lawsuit using the children as props

Their claim was generally broad in scope – too broad for the courts to deal with – although it did focus on one specific government policy: The Trudeau government’s purchase of — and plans to expand — the Trans Mountain pipeline.

“The defendants (the Canadian government) are further alleged to support fossil fuel exploration, extraction, production and consumption through subsidies to the fossil fuel industry and through the acquisition of the Trans Mountain Pipeline System, the Trans Mountain Expansion Project and the Puget Sound Pipeline System,” the court decision reads.

In response to the petition to the federal court, the Canadian government moved to strike the claim. The court granted Canada’s request, without awarding costs.

Interesting. The uber-climate cultist government of Justin Trudeau wanted to squash the suit.

“The plaintiffs are effectively seeking that this court intervene in Canada’s overall approach to climate policy, for which there is no judicially manageable legal standard,” Justice Michael Manson writes in his decision.”Additionally, the remedies sought by the plaintiffs are not legal remedies.

“The plaintiffs’ position fails on the basis that there are some questions that are so political that the courts are incapable or unsuited to deal with them.”

Too political. Pretty much because this is political. The plaintiffs, meaning the big bucks climate cult groups using the kids, plan to appeal, but, instead, the kids should be forced to practice what they preach
