Dutch case  should influence the commitments made by Canada to COP21 in Paris. Canada should commit to 25% below 1990 levels by 2020

Before COP21, The Trudeau government should make a commitment based on the principles of the Dutch cas; 25% below 1990 by 2020


After doing a content analysis of the successful Dutch Court Case, brought by environmentalists against the the Dutch government, I could see that there were many precedents in the decision that could be used, by advocates, in Canada. In the content analysis, I have isolated sections; such as norms, targets, international principles, obligations,   pace of reduction, urgency, definitive science, per capita relevance etc.

The Doctrine of legitimate Expectations has the following components

•       Not breaking and undertaking as one pleases

•       Compatibility with public duty

•       Public interest may be better served by honouring their undertaking than by breaking it

•       Fulfilling the expectation must assist in performing rather than inhibit the performance of its statutory duties
