Toronto city council has halted its contentious ban on plastic shopping bags, handing a victory to Rob Ford at what could be his last meeting as mayor.
Councillors voted Wednesday to kill the proposed bylaw that would have enforced the ban beginning Jan. 1.
“We’ve made a decision. There is no ban on bags,” Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong, the chair of the public works committee, said. “There is no five-cent charge [for bags.] We have spent enough time at council dealing with this. We need to move forward.”
