Federal Plastics Bill Passed

I have been so busy with local issues that I haven’t been paying close attention to the news, so thanks to Lucie McKiernan in Pamela Goldsmith-Jones constituency office for pointing this out.

A private member’s bill calling for a national framework to reduce plastic pollution in Canadian waters passed unanimously in the House of Commons on Dec. 5.

This is good, but it’s only a first step. We need the federal government to ban single use plastics, especially the deluge of packaging that’s stuffing landfills to bursting.
