Petition to the Government of Canada

  • COVID-19 has made clear we need plastics more than ever;
  • Plastics save lives in hospitals every day when used in protective face masks, shields, gowns, oxygen masks and easy to clean surfaces;
  • Plastics have saved millions of people in Canada and around the world from COVID-19;
  • Plastics are ubiquitous in Canadian homes, they are used in TV's, sound systems, cell phones, appliances, siding, fencing decking and piping;
  • Plastics are essential in planes, trains, automobiles, ships, satellites and space stations;
  • Canada exports plastics products worldwide contributing significantly to Canadian prosperity; and
  • Canadian plastic products are environmentally responsible and often have the lowest carbon footprint when compared to alternatives.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to:
1. End its unfounded attacks on plastic products; and
2. Empower and support the 100,000 men and women in the industry that create $35 billion worth of versatile products yearly in an environmentally responsible manner.
