Canada heeds the call of PH,will shoulder cost of shipping back trash



Canada, called the bluff of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte as regards the return of the container vans containing trash that was sent here in 2013.
Canada has expressed its intention to shoulder all the expenses to ship back the waste- all 69 container vans of it.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) reported this development to the President during the recent cabinet meeting in Malacanang.

Presidential spokesperson and concurrent Chief Presidential counsel Atty. Salvador Panelosaid the concerned agencies conveyed Canada's commitment to fund the shipment of all 69 waste containers back to Canada. 
"The president is firm that we are not garbage collectors, thus he ordered that the Philippines will no longer accept any waste from any country," Panelo said.

On May 1, Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. tweeted that the waste sent to the Philippines during the administration of Benigno Aquino III will be shipped back to Canada in 15 days.
This update came after Pres. Duterte threatened to sail to Canada and “dump their trash there.”
"I will really return (the garbage)... Load the containers to a ship, and I will advise Canada that your garbage is on the way. Prepare a grand reception. Eat it if you want to," Duterte earlier said.
