Canada aims to ban plastic food containers by 2021

The Prime Minister made headlines on Monday, by announcing that his government will ban single-use plastics, as early as 2021.

Canada's move comes on the heels of the European Parliament voting in March to ban single-use items like plastic cutlery, straws and stirrers along with other plastic items often found littering beaches and oceans.

Canada will moreover save "targets" for companies that form or promote plastics to be to blame for their plastic extinguish.

If Canadians work together and care more about not scattering plastic items into the ditches or in parks and roadways, and about recycling, maybe the proposed law for 2021 doesn't need to be enacted, because we'll be taking care of it - just a thought. Thus Mr Trudeau said he is very pleased to announce that as early as 2021, Canada will ban damaging, single-use plastic throughout Canada. Canada has not yet outlined exactly which plastics will be banned. "As Canadians and as citizens of the world, we have no choice but to act now".

Every year, the Great Canadian Shore Cleanup campaign gathers about 3,000 tonnes of garbage, much of it plastics, from Canadian shorelines - something Peter Ross, executive director for the Coastal Ocean Research Institute, acknowledged was "a bandaid".

"This will most definitely save the City of St. Albert money", she said, as a federal single-use item ban could let the city claw back some of the $96,000 it had approved to create a single-use item reduction strategy.

"That not only could be good for the environment, it's good to lessen customer confusion, like you have now, when you have different municipalities all doing different things", he said.

Acknowledging the value of plastic for several industries, she said that the problem "isn't plastic but plastic pollution". "I recycle. But I want more choices (of non-plastic products) and the emphasis should be put on the manufacturer", Mr Fracassi added.

"Since our event at the Fox with the Water Brothers, we've been overwhelmed by the many calls to tackle plastic pollution, including from students across our east end community", he said. Since then many countries, including members of the European Union and Canada, have been at a loss for where to send their plastic, resulting in new policy proposals to try and reduce plastic waste.

Trudeau's chief rival, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, dismissed the government measure as "another gesture without a plan, without any kind of specifics on how this would be implemented, or any kind of study on the impact on prices for consumers, on jobs, on how this would affect the small businesses".

This is to cut down on plastic pollution in the environment which has been seen to harm birds and marine life, and the massive concern of plastics piling up in landfills.
