Plastic bag association commences legal action against Toronto bag ban (22-11-2012)
 
The Canada Plastic Bag Association (CPBA) has commenced a legal proceeding in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in Toronto against the City of Toronto. The CPBA legal filing seeks to quash the city of Toronto resolution banning 'single use plastic shopping bags' (Resolution No. 2 in Item No. EX20.2 and confirmed by By-law No. 805-2012).
CPBA members have a substantial economic interest in the manufacture, supply, distribution and sale of plastic bags in Toronto and would, wholly and individually, be significantly impacted by the Plastic Bag Ban. The CPBA argues that the plastic bag ban is unlawful and that it was passed in bad faith because council has not received any advice, evidence, or opinion from its staff or any other person indicating that banning "single-use plastic carry-out (shopping) bags" would further the economic, social, and/or environmental well-being of the City or would protect the health, safety and well-being of any person. "As Toronto City Council gave no notice, undertook no public consultation, carried out no due diligence, and received no advice prior to adopting the Plastic Bag Ban, the bag ban resolution ought to be quashed for having been passed in bad faith," said Joe Hruska, representing the CPBA.
The Canadian Plastic Bag Association CPBA is an incorporated advocacy organization representing a wide range of manufacturers and distributors of plastic shopping bags throughout Canada. Its members service a variety of retail sectors in Toronto including supermarkets, department stores, discount stores, drug stores, convenience stores and many others. CPBA members are committed to operating in conformity with sound environmental practice and the principles of product stewardship. CPBA members work co-operatively with retailers and government to pursue the three R's (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) in their own operations and with respect to the products that they produce.
