The city of Montreal said it is now open to a public consultation on the Publisac, but some 15,000 people have to sign a petition to force the issue.
Some residents want the advertising flyers to be handed out only to those who want them.
They also want to ban the plastic bags they come in.
Originally the city said it would not hold a public consultation, but changed its mind after several boroughs received requests.
