For Our Kids Toronto and For Our Kids national are thrilled to share that we’ve been granted intervenor status in the youth-led climate lawsuit Mathur et. al. v. Her Majesty in Right of Ontario. Arguments will be read Sept. 12-14.
Seven young Ontarians began a legal challenge of the Ontario government's weak emissions-reductions target in 2018, and the case is still before the court as the government attempts to have it dismissed.
The intervenor status was granted to For Our Kids along with the Assembly of First Nations, Indigenous Climate Action, Friends of the Earth, Asper Centre, and Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE).
