Sioux Lookout, Ontario Rescinds Plastic Bag Ban

Sioux Lookout, Ontario Rescinds Plastic Bag Ban

On September 15th of 2010, the city of Sioux Lookout became the first municipality in Ontario, Canada to pass a bylaw prohibiting the distribution of single-use plastic bags by retailers.

In October of this year, the current city council decided to repeal the bylaw.  It seems that the bylaw was passed by the outgoing city council last September.

See a news article about the bylaw repeal at The Chronicle Journal and the TB Newswatch.
