There’s nothing worth having that do gooder, brain dead liberals wouldn’t be willing to take away from you in order to save the world. In Canada, they are starting with the little plastic things:

Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault published draft regulations Tuesday outlining how Canada will ban the manufacture, sale and import of [plastic grocery bags and Styrofoam takeout containers], along with plastic cutlery, stir sticks, straws and six-pack rings, by the end of next year.

The only reason bureaucrats do crap like this is to justify their position and their power over the little people.

But wait… there’s more…

Taking away things that make life a little more convenient is just the beginning.

[Guilbeault] said the ban is only part of the story because what isn’t being banned has got to be recycled. …

Standards for plastics to make them easier to recycle, as well as a requirement that half of all plastic packaging must be made of recycled material, are also coming, he said.

You’ll know the difference because the recycled material will be much more expensive but I doubt the polar bears will.

Remember, too much tyranny will never be enough to satisfy the environmentalist wackos pushing this crap. Karen Wirsig of Environmental Defence says that Big Government “also needs to expand the list of banned single-use plastics, including hot and cold drink cups and lids.”

The Sierra Club Canada Foundation wants even more plastic stuff banned:

“We also need to expand this ban to include all unnecessary items of single use plastic, and we expect this list to be expanded in the New Year,” Gretchen Fitzgerald, the national programs director, said in a statement.

Welcome to the new normal where you are allowed to use only what the Marxist elites have determined you need, after all, they know better than you.

Gee, I wonder if they’ll ban condoms too. Maybe not, maybe they’ll just issue a limit on how many you can buy each month. I can see the PSA’s now, encouraging you to “Rinse and Reuse.”

Oh well, screw your freedom, it’s for the common good.

Just wait until the Canuks find out the replacement for many plastic items like bags and utensils will have to be made from wood, you know, like from trees? Trees that need to be cut down and the excess is burned. Oh my!
