The Union of Municipalities of New Brunswick is calling on the province to ban single-use plastic bags.

The union voted in favour of the ban during its annual conference in Fredericton over the weekend.

Nova Scotia recently tabled legislation aimed at banning single-use plastic bags within a year.

Newfoundland and Labrador announced a similar ban in April, while P-E-I was the first province in Canada to enact a ban into law, which took effect July 1st.
