Toronto considers ban on sale of bottled water
TORONTO - Toronto mayor David Miller says the city is joining the ranks of Canadian municipalities considering a ban on the sale of bottled water.
Miller says city council will examine how the city can curb bottled water waste as part of a larger effort to reduce the amount of garbage that ends up in landfills.
A report outlining the city's options will come before council in November.
Miller says Toronto's tap water is more pure than the leading brand of bottled water.
His comments come after the city of London, Ont., banned the sale of water bottles in their municipal buildings on Monday.
Other Canadian cities, such as Kitchener, Ottawa, and Vancouver, have all expressed interest in a similar ban.
