Silver Donald Cameron joins me now. He has just travelled across Canada to screen his new documentary and publicise the accompanying book. The book is called Warrior Lawyers: From Manila to Manhattan, Attorneys for the Earth. It’s a book that accompanies the film, which both feature interviews conducted with trailblazing lawyers across the world, who are leading the way taking on national governments and global corporations when it comes to guaranteeing the human right to a healthy environment. The book and film ask the fundamental question, why then not in Canada and the United States?
