Toronto city council votes to ban plastic shopping bags

Toronto city council has voted to ban plastic bags as of the beginning of next year.

The 24-20 vote came after a push by Mayor Rob Ford to overturn the five-cent fee on plastic shopping bags.

During the debate, Ford said people were "irritated" by the fee.
