Canada Falls Far Short of Pope Francis’ Call for Ecological Justice : Briefing Paper (pdf) (2015)


Laudato Si (Praise Be), On Care for our Common Home, has been the most anticipated and com-mented upon papal encyclical in history. Writing in his straightforward style, Pope Francis addresses climate change in the context of a globalized econ-omy that is threatening the Earth’s capacity to sus-tain life while creating “tragic effects of environ-mental degradation in the lives of the world’s poor-est.” (13)1 Leaders from many other faiths have en-dorsed the Pope’s urgent call for action on climate change.  This Briefing Paper will assess Canadian policies in light of Pope Francis’ call for ecological justice.
