A ban the on plastic straws and water bottles in the Algonquin Theatre was a topic of discussion at Wednesday's General Committee meeting.

However, Director of Community Services, Kari Lambe said that due to safety issues regarding proper hydration for theatre patrons, plastic water bottles will still be kept on hand. She also noted that they do not have enough staff to wash glasses after every event.

The cost to install refill water stations in the theatre is estimated at $5,500.
