Duterte picks war over uncollected trash

President Rodrigo Duterte has upped the challenge for Canada by threatening war just to take back their garbage impounded by Philippine Customs officials six years ago.

“We’ll declare war against them. Kaya man natin ‘yan sila. Isaoli ko talaga. Tignan mo,” Duterte said.

“Ikarga mo ‘yan doon sa barko, 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,” he added.

Duterte issued the statement while attending a briefing on the status of the provinces affected by the 6.1-magnitude quake that hit Luzon late Monday afternoon.

“I cannot understand why they are making us a dumpsite, and that is not the only case on point. Papasunod-sunod ‘yan na pinapadala yung basura sa atin. Well, not this time,” he added.

In 2013, 50 containers of waste from Canada were impounded by Philippine customs authorities and left to rot in a landfill in Tarlac.

In 2017, while visiting the country, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said there are “legal barriers” preventing their government from taking back the garbage.

“It is now theoretically possible to get it back but there are still a number of questions around: who will pay for, where the financial responsibility is, where the consequences are,” Trudeau said at a news conference.
