Toronto City Council kills plastic bag ban
from Toronto Star
Faced with lawsuits from the plastics industry, Toronto City Council voted 38-7 to forget about banning plastic shopping bags on Jan. 1 as planned. At the behest of Mayor Rob Ford, the council earlier this year scrapped the mandatory 5-cent bag fee introduced in 2009, which supporters said had been successful in slashing the number of bags dispensed. After the latest move, there are no official restrictions whatever on bags.
