VANCOUVER — Bylaws banning single-use plastics in Richmond, Victoria, Saanich, Tofino and Ucluelet will soon have provincial approval, BC’s Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy announced Saturday. The announcement from minister George Heyman comes after a public consultation on plastic waste that generated more than 35,000 responses. In addition to approving the bylaws proposed in those municipalities, the province will be considering other bylaws as they are submitted and working to develop a province-wide framework for implementing bans on single-use plastic items, said Heyman at a news conference Saturday.
