Should Nova Scotia follow Toronto's lead and ban plastic bags?

Toronto city council voted Wednesday for an outright ban by Jan. 1, 2013. It began when the mayor tried to get a five cent charge on bags removed.

Halifax Mayor Peter Kelly was unavailable for comment Thursday. But a city official told CBC News it's a provincial issue.

The province says it's not interested.

"Nova Scotia is not looking at banning plastic shopping bags at this time," a government spokesperson told CBC.
