Hazel McCallion Considering Ban on Plastic Bags
Toronto city councillors have already voted to ban plastic bags as of January 1, 2013 and it looks like Mississauga may follow suit.
Mayor Hazel McCallion says she has been questioned about whether Mississauga would adopt the same policy and she has decided to to ask the environmental committee to study the idea. A recommendation from the committee should come back some time in the fall.
McCallion also suggested that this should include public consultation telling the Globe, "I think that's important, in order to, you know, do our homework."
The Mississauga Mayor criticized the decision by Toronto councillors saying that it was made too quickly.
