TORONTO —
An Ontario proposal to ban the sale of plastic bottles was lifted today in the legislature as the Liberal government sent mixed messages that opened the door to possible bans in the future.

\"Another reality is that there are now school boards where there is lead and we are actually supplying bottled water to these schools.
\"After Environment Minister John Gleeson said he was open to the idea and was willing to consider all options to limit waste, the vote was surprising.
While Gerretsen said he was not ready to take a final position on the issue, he praised the bill earlier in the day for trying to reduce garbage in the province.
\"We are thinking about it. . .
\"All efforts to reduce the production of garbage will attract us to carry out more recycling, more reuse and the reduction of materials,\" Gerretsen said . \".
\"Any such effort should be commended, but we do not want to make any judgment on the specific actions we are taking, as we are now in the process of consultation.
\"The bill, proposed by Liberal supporter Kuldip Kular last month, was debated today in the Legislature to reduce waste and energy consumption related to the manufacture and recycling of plastic bottles and to encourage the use of tap water.
