A story in today's Toronto Star, talks about Toronto discussing the banning of plastic bags, or in the very least, recycling them.

So, it's been a week since I dropped Meg off at the airport. And let me tell you, I do miss her dearly. It's interesting to live alone once again. Meg only lived with me for two months, but it was a great two months.
I do miss having her around to talk to, but thanks to technology we have been able to email, chat or talk everyday. I can't begin to imagine how much different things would be if we didn't at the very least have email. I mean, we'd go days without making contact which just seems so weird.

While there isn't a lot of content there yet, it will no doubt begin to ramp up as she leaves in a weeks time.
