New federal law may actually inject more facts into climate debate : op-ed

"...A new federal lawBill C-59, which received royal assent last monthhas Canadas oil and gas industry and the premiers of oil and gas provinces up in arms. Specifically, in legalese, it allows government or outside litigants to review a representation to the public in the form of a statement, warranty or guarantee of a products benefits for protecting the environment or mitigating the environmental and ecological effects of climate change that is not based on an adequate and proper test, the proof of which lies on the person making the representation. These reviews would be conducted by government courts where claimants would have to prove the truthfulness of what they were saying..."

Canadas new greenwashing ban rattles fossil fuel industry

"...A coalition of environmental and health organizations celebrated the bill, describing it as a potential watershed moment in dealing with the systemic problem of making spurious environmental claims. False green claims, or greenwashing, not only deceive consumers but also contribute to pollution and environmental degradation, with serious implications for human health, said Leah Temper, with the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE), an organization that has been pushing to ban fossil fuel advertising altogether in Canada. In addition, "it skews the competitive landscape, impairs sustainable consumption decisions, harms consumer trust and undermines companies incentives to invest in green innovation," noted Tanya Jemec, a lawyer at Ecojustice..."
