As an island city with 375 years of history, Montreal does not have a lot of room to spare.
Montreal has long history of plastic bags use and Mayor Denis Codere helped citizens to transition away from plastic bags by creating a sur charge and then banning them altogether.
Because of the wind, the cold, the piles of snow, plastic bags often collect in snow dumps as well as garbage dumps, and the wind will blow them back into the city eventually. Downwind from Montreal is the sensitve eco-system of the St-Laurent river system where a lot of families derive a livlihood from the sea.
Montrealers have always sought to be good stewards of the environment here and abroad and has a rich histroy of citizens that played on a world scale.
