These bags do not have to go to landfill Recycle them as the do up north. The article was in this website not too long ago explaining the whole process. Use technology to solve a problem not just ban something without looking a very viable options. The recycle method they use up north that the Japanese man invented is tested and works fine. Even makes it cheaper for the recycler as they make use of what they recycle. Win win for everyone. Get your blinders off and embrace technology

This is a sad day for the people of Toronto to have their environment and their wild life jepordised for the sake of a few bag manufacturers. Manufacturers who make a product that we do not need.
We need to look at the real consequence of plastic bags and then either go back to charging for them, which lets people choose if they want a bag or not, or just ban them and people will move on to reusable bags. it is simple and does not need to be complicated by money hungry manufacturers who care less about their surronds and its people than they do for their pocket book.
A sad day indeed for Toronto.
Perhaps sanity will return when the mayor gets voted out and a mayor with intouch with the people will get elected.
