I count myself very lucky for being able to live in the GTA and having the ability to travel far and wide across Ontario enjoying all that Nature has to offer.
For those who have traveled abroad can attest to how clean the area is and as I meet tourists they make the comment at how clean this country is and how is that people take such great care and pride in keep all our neighborhoods so clean.
We are coming up the sixth year anniversary of Toronto's first attempt to ban single use plastic shopping bags. (remember this; https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/toronto/toronto-bans-plastic-bags/article4237201/ )
Toronto is a great city because the people that live here are great at being good stewards of a community that maintains a clean lifestyle. We don't need to be legislated to be proud and keep the city free of garbage.
In Toronto I don't need government to make a decision for me.
I have instituted my own Plastic Bag Ban.
