I can see me living in a mall so I can use their bathrooms all day. I'm sure I couldn't afford my own toilet flushing! Truly I hope this doesn't get to Canada soon.

I think certain people should be excluded from this e.g. those who have horrible bloody and/or liquid BM's. I can understand for normal use of the latrine. I feel like not flushing when it's just urinating is good for water conservation, but for bm's...and especially the ones we're prone to..

I will be in big trouble if this happens in my town. Not only do I flush a lot but I take long showers 2 times a day for my fibro. the heat is all that really brings me relief. I would be very upset if this happens. I have a feeling it is not too far away though.

omg that would be horrible!!! we would be marching on washington over that being passed here in the states! Super crohnie stampede of the white house!!
I can not afford that! I have a hard enough time affording flushable hemmie wipes since I go through them like crazy! I can see what they are getting at but maybe they need to see what its like to have cd or uc and then they will totally let us flush as we need to!
