Cananda to ban single use plastics from 2021

Trudeau, speaking from Mont St-Hilaire Monday, painted a grim picture of a future in which not enough action is taken to reduce plastic pollution.

This will included such things as plastic straws, plastic cutlery. stir sticks, plates, certain plastic bags etc, but with the corollary "where supported by scientific evidence and warranted".

Right. You could nearly see his handlers diving into the lake, en masse.

"How do you explain dead whales washing up on beaches around the world, their stomachs jam-packed with plastic bags?"

"Canadians know first-hand the impacts of plastic pollution, and are exhausted of seeing their beaches, parks, streets and shorelines littered with plastic waste", Trudeau said.

The measure also will make plastic manufacturers and companies that use plastic packaging responsible for the collection and recycling of the materials.

-Every year, one million birds and over 100,000 sea mammals worldwide are injured or die when they mistake plastic for food or become entangled. Some plastics can take centuries to degrade.

Later, Trudeau tweeted, "Canadians throw away 3 million tonnes of plastic waste every year". Without steps to crack down on the problem, that number could increase to roughly $8 billion a year by 2030.

Trudeau described the issue in highly personal terms, beginning his four-minute address by talking about challenges trying to explain plastics in the environment to his three children, who are all under age 12.

"As early as 2021, Canada will ban harmful single-use plastics from coast to coast", Trudeau said.

Canada has delayed implementation until 2021 to allow time for a "science-based" decision on exactly which plastics "are harmful to the environment and human health", according to a government statement.

Canada is acting on a commitment made at the 2018 G7 Summit, joining France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom and the European Union in signing the Ocean Plastics Charter.

Currently, less than 10% of plastic used in Canada gets recycled.

Charles said many of his customers have found other uses at home for the new paper containers, such as using them to store crayons or markers.

Trudeau said Canada's plan will "closely mirror" that of Europe.

These alternatives can potentially cause as much or more environmental damage than plastic grocery bags, including increased industrial greenhouse gas emissions linked to man-made climate change.

The government is also in the final stages of passing two bills they argue will tighten environmental assessment criteria for energy projects and also protect the sensitive coast of northern British Columbia from oil spills by banning tanker traffic.

The proposals are expected and are generally supported by the sector, which is seeing a five-year high in capital spending this year thanks in part to incentive programs by federal and provincial governments, said Isabelle Des Chenes, executive vice-president of the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada.
