Could plastic bag ban go region-wide? City of Victoria sends ‘model bylaw’ to CRD

From the Times-Colonist:

The Capital Regional District board will next month consider drafting a model bylaw which local municipalities could use to ban single-use plastic bags.

The City of Victoria forwarded the idea for a model bylaw to the CRD and it was unanimously endorsed by the CRD’s environmental services committee on Wednesday.

“This is in no way a call for any other municipality, or district or electoral area to eliminate plastic bags,” Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps told the committee.

A model bylaw would enable local governments wanting to implement a ban to all be on the same regulatory page, Helps said.
