On October 25th, 2011, City Council reviewed the results of the survey done to see if citizens continue to support the Single-Use Bag Ban. 56% of people were in favour of the ban, 37% opposed, and 7% neutral. Of businesses, about it was about half and half for and against. After a thorough discussion, City Council voted unanimously to continue the Bag Ban. Recommendations for modifications will come to council in March.
