    Another policy that makes liberals feel good, but does no good.

    Oceans are responsible for our oxygen. The fishing industry has contributed to 50% of all the plastics in the water. Keep the damn straws for people who need them, and stop supporting the fishing industries.

    As usual these bureaucrats need to rattle their cages and abuse shop owners into complying with more regulations and eventually as the restaurant manager said " We will have to close " these dictators do not propose alternatives nor do they want the business to survive this is just a continuation of the lock down.

    They promised to do this before but Catherine McKenna couldn't get it done. She was too busy driving 14.7km in a convoy with her security team to a gym so she could walk on the treadmill for 20mins.

    Why not just burn the remaining plastic as well as phase out extra packaging and single use plastics.. i know it releases toxic chemicals into the air but mother nature has a beautiful way of cleaning herself and restoring balance.. planting more trees while we're at it cant hurt either.. or maybe melt the remaining plastic in some sort of facility that could filter the toxins in the air? It will take a thousand years for the plastic to decompose so why not get rid of it somehow?

    We need to get rid of plastics in the hospital as well right? Do that first and see how it goes.

    Real inclusive progressives would bring people together & stage a dialogue to find a solution that makes everyone happy. But to just force laws & ban legal products & activities only to inflect one certain lifestyle on everyone else is bullying, uncivilized, undemocratic & not what real progressives do. And besides, we have made great progress in biodegradable plastic. Don't bully! The more choices we have the better our democracy.

    Should not ban it . Should recycle . Ignoring it intead of educating is not a solution. Recycling can open up jobs . Many jobs .

    The problem is in manufacturing these plastics . They cant be recycled properly . Again government ignoring instead of helping .
