Thanks for the info, GeeCee.

I remember the first time I noticed the $0.50 eco fee at Canadian Tire a number of years ago. I was in zombie mode and stopped in there at 8am as I work nights ... bought some small items or whatever ... motor oil. Anyway ... I'm driving away and I notice "ecofee" and get pissed. Thinking to myself - "Wait ... I didn't buy no stinkin' coffee?! They don't even sell freshly brewed coffee there ... the hell?" and then realized a few seconds later it was probably some ecological fee crapola.
