Stumbles? far too mild a word for this. I'd say it's more like he fell on his FACE!

The comments came shortly after Trudeau further detailed his government’s plan to ban single use plastics at a national level.
According to sources, the current items the government is considering banning in Canada includes cotton swabs, plates, drink stirrers, balloon sticks, straws and other single-use materials.

All humour aside:
I am hoping, and will be VERY glad to see this ban come into effect. Banning plastic shopping bags should also be on this list. I take reusable bags to the grocery store but see far too many people paying 5 cents for plastic bags week after week. They end up in the landfill sites.

Nonsense! It's conservatives who preach less government yet try to insert government in peoples' personal medical decisions and who preach less government spending yet spend like drunken sailors when it suits their agenda.

Are they going to eliminate trash bags? Better get to work on a biodegradable substitute.

When his eyebrow fell off? Yeah, embarrassing. Plastic bags are reusable, unless you are useless.

What’s the issue? You can still be environmentally conscious in a variety of ways. Most people are not 100%, however if everyone would take the time & effort in a few ways, that’s a huge step. Why is that simple concept so difficult for you people to comprehend?

the issue?
this word salad.

“What do you and your family do to cut back on plastics?” asked a reporter.

“We have recently switched to drinking water bottles out of… water out of… when we have water bottles out of plastic. Sorry! Away from plastic towards paper like drink-box water bottles sort of things,” replied the Prime Minister.
