Filipino President Duterte Threatens ‘War’ if Canada Does Not Take Trash Back

ET: Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte threatened Tuesday to set sail to Canada next week to return garbage dumped in the Philippines several years ago.

“I want a boat prepared. I’ll give a warning to Canada maybe next week that they better pull that thing out or I will set sail to Canada and dump the trash there,” Duterte said, according Philippine News Agency, the government’s online newswire service.

A total of 103 container vans labelled “plastics” from Canada arrived at a Manila port during 2013 and 2014 for recycling. However, the containers were actually filled with Canadian household waste, including adult diapers, electronic garbage, and non-recyclable plastics.

The containers, which were shipped by a private company, have been rotting in the port for nearly six years now.

Duterte also reportedly asked Philippines Customs Commissioner Rey Guerrero to prohibit Canada from sending more trash to the country, and even threatened to declare war against Canada over the matter.

“Let’s fight with Canada. We’ll declare war against them. We can handle them. I’ll return the trash. Just wait and see,” he said.  more here

  1. By the Numbers: Phi vs Can is an almost 1 for 1 match in fighting male age brackets. But in Fightin’ odds. . . gotta go with the Filipinos over Justines T-ball team.

  2. The Canadian’s and other countries cry about the environment and yet ship their garbage to other countries knowing that it’ll be dumped out at sea or burned. They avoid their own environmental laws by palming their trash off shore for disposal. This kind of thing has been going on for decades and partly why we have such a mess out at sea.
    Deal with your own garbage Canada.

  4. I wonder whose side the US would be on.

    That’s the side that would win, Canada by itself stands no chance against the Philippines. Heck, Canada by itself would stand no chance against even a Chicago street gang.

  5. …personally, I would LOVE to see flotillas of Philippine triremes catapulting loads of wet, stank trash onto the City of Vancouver, where it would be indistinguishable from its more liberal denizens…

  6. Canada is involved in Meaningful conversations.
    For 6 years? Looks like government.

    Let’s talk about the problem and do nothing about it, like the; debt, illegal immigration, radical islam, honor killings, murdering the unborn, pay to play, corruption, kick-backs, sedition and treason.

    Canada, do what’s right, take your shit back home.

  7. Great, the battle of the morons. Some private firm in Canada shipped these containers to the Philippines six years ago and always promised to do something about them. Canada ought to take the private company by the gonads and explain the error of their ways and tell them to send them back.

    Not that Filipinos are girly – they’re not (neither are the Canuks) – but how they gonna get there?
    Sorta like threatening to whip someone’s ass over the telephone.
