One of Canada's largest producers of plastics says there will be plenty of room for future growth in output despite a proposal by Ottawa to ban certain single-use plastic products by 2021.
The official said specific items to be banned will be determined based on a science-based review, but they are considering items such as water bottles, plastic bags and straws.
Across Canada, a number of municipalities and some provinces have recently moved ahead with various single-use plastics bans, mainly targeting plastic bags. Trudeau stated that his government is now researching which items should be banned while confirming that Canada would follow the model laid out by the European Union. "And to be honest as a dad it is tough trying to explain to my kids", Trudeau said.
