The first reason why I think that water bottles should be banned is that they are expensive and pricey to the economy. According to the deputy commissioner of sanitation for recycling and waste reduction stated “Plastic shopping bags are an enormous problem for New York City. He went on to say that the city pays ten million dollars every year to send 100,000 tons of plastic that are tossed in landfills in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina.

American life turned down to the extent that banks fell and investors could no longer invest in the country. Many companies closed, and millions of citizens lost their job. Crime became a way of life for many during the Great Depression as it was almost impossible to find work.

The planning started early in 1970 with previously mentioned budgeted cost of about $120 million including $40 million for the main stadium only, but that stadium later on costed $836 million. These cost overruns were associated with time overruns too. Montreal Mayor Drapeau was interested in works of the architect Roger Tallibert and insisted of assigning him to that project.
