UPDATED: Lawsuits mount over Toronto bag ban | Solid Waste & Recycling Magazine.

This is a sad day for the people of Toronto to have their environment and their wild life jepordised for the sake of a few bag manufacturers.  Manufacturers who make a product that we do not need.
We need to look at the real consequence of plastic bags and then either go back to charging for them, which lets people choose if they want a bag or not, or just ban them and people will move on to reusable bags.  it is simple and does not need to be complicated by money hungry manufacturers who care less about their surronds and its people than they do for their pocket book.
A sad day indeed for Toronto.
Perhaps sanity will return when the mayor gets voted out and a mayor with intouch with the people will get elected.
