Taking inspiration from the EU parliament to impose a wide-ranging ban on single-use plastics; PM Justin Trudeau said Canada would ban harmful single-use plastics from coast to coast as early as 2021. The specific items to be banned will be determined based on a scientific review, but govt is considering items such as water bottles, plastic bags & straws. 1 million birds & over 100,000 sea mammals worldwide die due to plastics.
