The McGill Journal of Law and Health (MJLH) is holding its sixth annual colloquium at the Faculty of Law, titled Litigating for health care reform in Canada: How new legal challenges aim to extend Chaoulli’s scope.
The Colloquium will address legal and policy issues associated with challenges in new cases coming from Alberta and British Columbia aiming to extend the reach of the decision in Chaoulli v. Quebec , and how these legal challenges will influence the future of Canada’s public healthcare system.
Jeffery Dickinson, Founding Partner of Clean Energy Advisors, will speak on “Renewable Energy on the ground in Asia: 25 years of projects, policy, and potential.”
McGill law graduate John Haffner, a 2008 Yale World Fellow and founder of Haffner Group clean technology consultants, will also be on hand to comment.
