Montreal has set itself some lofty goals when it comes to being environmentally-friendly. Mayor Plante wants the city to be carbon neutral by 2050. And part of the plan to get there includes eliminating single-use plastic by 2020. That includes things like plastic straws, styrofoam cups and grocery-store packaging for meat and vegetables. But how realistic is that goal, and is this the best way to attack the problem? We ask the experts.
