Trudeau government wants to ban single-use plastics by 2021



According to sources from within the Liberal government, and CBC, Justin Trudeau is planning to ban single-use plastics as early as 2021.

The ban includes, but is not limited to: plastic straws, cotton buds, drink stirrers, plates, cutlery and balloon sticks.

This is part of a solution the government has in mind for the plastic pollution problem, which they will address on Monday.

The list is a carbon-copy of the one used by the European Union, which voted in March to also ban products made of oxo-degradable plastics, such as bags. Oxo-degradable plastics include additives that don’t completely biodegrade but fragment into small pieces and remain in the environment.

Fast-food containers and cups made of expanded polystyrene, similar to white styrofoam, will also be banned.

A report conducted by Deloitte and ChemInfo Services, commissioned by Environment and Climate Change Canada, found in 2016 that only nine percent of plastic waste was recycled in Canada, with 87 percent ending up in landfills.

Canadians throw away more than 34 million plastic bags every day, according to Environment and Climate Change Canada; most plastic bags that end up in landfills can take as long as 1,000 years to decay. These bags also have the tendency to end up in the oceans, threatening marine life.

According to the Environment and Climate Change Canada, the new plastics strategy, which will be introduced on Monday, will generate jobs and reduce greenhouse gases. Environment Minister Catherine McKenna will make the proclamation.

What do you think of this measure to curb pollution? Let us know in the comments below!

That's interesting considering Canada is one of the best countries in the world for recycling plastics. Sockboy is just playing to his progressive libbie bas.

To the tune of "Mary Ellen Carter"

Moronic whining truckers will win out in the end
And make the Cuyahoga River burn again
Burn again! Burn again!
So full of petrochemicals it is poison to men
Those who piss and moan about their burger packaging
Will make the Cuyahoga River burn again

Yet another embarrassing, cringe-worthy performance by our moronic leader.


“Mr. Trudeau, what do you and your family do to cut back on plastics?”

“uhhh...We uh..uhh...we have...uhh recently switched to drinking...uh... water bottles out of...uhh… water out of…uhh... when we have water bottles...uhh out of ...ahh...plastic...ahh.. Sorry! Away from plastic towards paper...uhhhh.. like drink-box water bottles sort of things,”



"Drinking box water bottles??" What in the bloody hell is he even talking about?



What a complete imbecile.

Last week the NDP said they would eliminate it by 2022

Trudeau is going to do it one year earlier.

Well maybe he could start by dropping the f*cking hypocritic bullshit. I have yet to see a shred of evidence of Trudeau drinking out of a "drinking box water bottle". Seen dozens of photos of him with plastic water bottles in front of him, though.

Hes a pathetic, virtue signalling moron...Period!! The fact that you're eating up the shit he's serving reveals the level of you're intellect as well.

And the last time I checked, they didn't sell water in those little drink boxes either. Even still, those drink boxes contain polyethylene plastic. The same shit found in plastic bottles.

It’s not bad for the environment when Trudeau does it, right? He gets a pass, right?

Like how you call the premier of Ontario dyke bitch for a decade or so then pretend to care that two lesbians are assaulted on a bus?

I suspect that with the exception of every manufacturer in China, nobody is against it provided we can find suitable, economical alternatives. What many people are against, however is a leader who has been revealed as a complete liar, a shameless, virtue signalling hypocrite, and a moron. The guy doesn't even have the sense to check with the nannies to see where his water comes from before stepping up to the podium and making a freaking fool of himself.

In other words Trudeau is the enemy therefore everything he says and does must be attacked.

Why? You're just like them. You're a f*cking jingoist when it comes to Groper. He can do NO wrong in your eyes, even when he does shit like attempt to obstruct justice, sexual assault, engaging in multiple conflicts of interest, violating basic civil rights, etc. Meanwhile anyone who isn't pro-Groper is a White natty in your tiny little mind. You're pathetic. Go on, cry for us some more about how poor Groper has it so hard.

Oh by the way you little closet white natty, aren't there any non-White christians for you to cheer about the persecution of?
Man, what a miserable existence to have to be one of you. Always gotta remember what lies you told, living an ideology that is utterly hypocritical, having to decide which of your principles you won't be throwing under the bus on any given day, finding new and "exciting" forms of emotional and moral relativism, continually shifting goalposts to suit your agenda(s), And of course, insisting that anyone who won't join you in blowing Groper is a white natty.

Trudeau can't seem to practice what he preaches when it comes to pretty much anything.

It's no wonder he and his daddy have so much trouble with the realities of real life. Both of them living off the fortune grampy Trudeau made, doing nothing of worth, traipsing around like the trust fund brats they are (and were) and becoming PM without having a clue what it's like to live in the real world.

I'd wager his trust fund has investments in aluminium. If bottles go, cans and tetrapak explode.

Seriously?? What a fukking idiot you are.

It means the plastic will be used many times and then recycled back into straws and whatever. Lets hope your favorite straw is a recycled suppository holder.
