Detailed Information:
The Canadian government has releases its endangered species legislation - the Species at Risk Act.

Brock Evans, Director of the US Endangered Species Coalition has described it as "the weakest and most pitiful excuse for an environmental law that I have seen in thirty years".

In marked contrast to the US Endangered Species Act, the proposed Canadian legislation fails to provide mandatory protection for critical habitat, allows politicians not scientists to make final listing decisions, provides minimal if any protection for transboundary species and abdicates primary responsibility for species protection to the provinces.
