    I'll take my chances. :rofl1:

    Even if there was any good info in there, it sounds lost in the over-the-top.

    I think Canada does a pretty good job. But they also have the benefit of being a hugely resource rich country, with a relatively small population. The US used to be like that

    I know, I was pretty bummed. I actually got up and walked out shortly after the bit about metal utensils, it was supposed to go on longer. Thankfully it was free, I would have been ticked if I'd paid for it!

    I was really hoping for a balanced, thorough, and informative discussion on the subject.

    There's something luxurious about well made wooden eating utensils. Some day if I ever get too much time on my hands (ha!) I plan to make a set out of red alder.

    Or maybe a set out of cascara, as a gift for a mortal enemy. :popcorn:

    I personally believe the most likely answers are the obvious ones, like basic human stupidity coupled with greed.

    Depends on your POV, lots of Americans wouldn't want to live with some of Canada's laws.
