Trudeau is facing criticism after he tweeted a pizza party photo which showed single-use plastics. CTV's Angie Seth reports.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is being criticized after appearing to have plastic cutlery during a meeting, despite his government’s plan to ban single-use plastics as early as 2021.

He tweeted a photo of his meeting with the youth council in his Quebec riding, in which a pile of plastic cutlery can be seen on the table.

Single-use cutlery is among the world’s biggest non-biodegradable sources of garbage.

“Always great to be back in my riding! I had a good meeting with the Papineau Youth Council today,” he wrote on Monday. “Thanks for your ideas on how we can fight climate change, advance gender equality, and make our community - and Canada - better for everyone”

The plastics pollution issue is so dire that earlier this month, the federal government pledged to ban all single-use plastics as early as 2021. At the time, Trudeau called the issue a “problem we simply can’t afford to ignore.”

In a statement emailed to CTVNews.ca, the Prime Minister's Office said that "the utensils will be re-used."

Minister of Environment and Climate Change Catherine McKenna came to Trudeau’s defence on CTV’s Power Play Tuesday, telling host Don Martin “it happens to everyone.”

“You’re in a situation, you’re doing it [a meeting] quickly, you use plastics…I know the prime minister thinks we need to do better, I think we need to do better,” she said.

According to a statement from the federal government, less than 10 per cent of plastic used in Canada gets recycled and, without any change, Canadians will throw away an estimated $11 billion worth of plastic materials each year by 2030.

Because of the urgency of the situation, some said the irony in the photo was thick enough to cut with a knife.

One Twitter user wrote that the pile of plastic forks and knives in the photo might as well be called a “pile of hypocrisy.”

He also called out the prime minister for appearing to need a fork and knife to eat pizza.

Another person asked: “Why does a meeting to discuss climate change display single-use plastic cutlery?” The photo was also quickly turned into memes.

Are they banned yet, no. Clearly the 'mob' and it's followers, like 'Spammy', are equal to the 'witch hunters of the Dark Ages'. Somebody should shine some light on that era to see what is being not published as the rest of history can be pieced together quite accurately.


What period was the dark ages?
Migration period, also called Dark Ages or Early Middle Ages, the early medieval period of western European history—specifically, the time (476–800 ce) when there was no Roman (or Holy Roman) emperor in the West or, more generally, the period between about 500 and 1000, which was marked by frequent warfare and a ...

Oh piss off. When you're constantly shooting your yap off about the environment, when you proudly announce you're going to ban single-use plastics, you better make goddam sure you walk your talk. Optics are EVERYTHING in politics.
