The Kimberley Chamber of Commerce has released a short survey in hopes of gauging the local business community about the potential impacts of a ban on single-use plastics.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently made promises to implement a ban on single-use plastics such as bags and cutlery. The intention is that the ban could be in place as soon as early 2021.

As well Kimberley City Council has been approached about exploring their own ban on plastic bags throughout Kimberley.
With the recent developments on the subject, the Kimberley Chamber of Commerce is asking for the public's feedback on the issue to help them better advocate on behalf of Kimberley's business community.
