Yes, I see that. I was just pointing out that proven policies are already out there that actually do work to address this particular problem.

That's always the first place to start when faced with a political problem - look around to see how other jurisdictions are doing it - and which ones work, and which ones don't. This model in Toronto isn't the only way to go about the problem.

Unfortunately, this particular policy solution doesn't recognize anyone's God-given right to force the state to dispose of as much of their garbage as they please.
