Federal govt should accept SC decision regarding plastic ban: Alberta

BY Connect News, Nov 17, 2023 8:16 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

The rules currently ban the manufacture and import of those single-use plastic items but are not expected to ban their sale and export completely by 2025.

Alberta has urged the federal government to accept the Supreme Court's decision regarding the plastic ban.

In fact, the Alberta government is pleased with the court's ruling that found Canada's plastic ban too broad when it came to determining what plastic is toxic to the environment.

The Federal Court on Thursday found the Cabinet order that all things made of plastic are harmful, not reasonable.

The decision may therefore lead to changes in the ban on six single-use plastic items, including straws, grocery bags and takeout containers.

The rules currently ban the manufacture and import of those single-use plastic items but are not expected to ban their sale and export completely by 2025.

Both the Alberta and Saskatchewan governments went to court to fight the initial ban, calling it unconstitutional.
