Canada produces the most garbage per capita in the developed world
It's truly a shame that our politicians have put environmentalism on the backburner. There are so many countries we could be modeling ourselves after in that regard, but hey, who cares? Caring about the environment doesn't buy votes when people care more about weed, refugees, and tolerance, or religion, lower taxes, and economic development on the other side.
Nova Scotia seems to have a good system, perhaps more provinces should adopt it. Garbage bags are clear, and recycling and composting are forced. If your waste isn't sorted correctly, it will not be collected.
