Ottawa Plans to Ban Single-Use Plastics

The federal government plans to ban some environmentally harmful single-use plastics by 2021 to reduce waste and litter and protect the world’s oceans.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says details still need to be worked out, but it would likely include straws, bags and cutlery.
He also says companies manufacturing plastic products, or sell items with plastic packaging, will be responsible for the collecting and recycling of their material.
