Gord Miller, the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario, is publishing his annual report in two parts this year and the first is available as of today (pdf). After a look at the introduction, I suspect the rest of it will be worth a read.
...lately there has been a marked change in the behaviour of some ministries in respecting the rights of the citizens of Ontario under the [Environmental Bill of Rights]. This disregard for the rights of Ontarians has increased to a scope and degree such that I find it necessary to break out this portion of my statutory reporting requirements into its own part, so that Legislators can focus on the implications of the situation.
The implications of the situation need to be considered by more than just Legislators.
The government of Ontario -- the McGuinty government as it prefers to be known -- has lately demonstrated disregard for a number of things including the legislature and the legislative process, parliamentary privilege, public consultation, school boards, the right to collective bargaining, the Labour Relations Board and the courts.
There seems to be a trend here.
