Montreal grocery stores are going to go green, if Denis Coderre has anything to say about it. Today at City Hall, the mayor of Montreal has officially stated the city will look into the banning of all plastic bags, reports CJAD.
In Coderre's words, a ban on plastic bags may not be the biggest environmental initiative, "but it could make a big difference."
No official ban exists yet, as public consultations on the removal and prohibition of plastic bags in Montreal still need to be held. If approved, Montreal would become the first major city in Canada to ban single-use plastic shopping bags, with Toronto having lifted its once-approved ban last year, and the second in North America, after California who passed a ban last month.
