Canada’s recycling is mainly fake. Most recycling is just dumped in the landfill or burned.
We like to pretend that we’re clean and environmental when really, we just outsource our worst garbage to the poor countries of the world.
Six years ago, dozens of huge cargo containers of Canadian garbage of the grossest variety — including adult diapers — were shipped to the Philippines, where it rotted.
After six years, Filipino president Rodrigo Duterte was fed up with all this, and demanded in no uncertain terms that Canada, that Trudeau, take our garbage back.
So, finally, Canada’s garbage was loaded on a ship to be sent back to Canada.
Now, what kind of idiot would want that garbage?
Catherine McKenna! She tweeted:
Anchors aweigh! The containers of garbage have departed the Philippines and will arrive in Canada in four weeks — where the waste will be turned into energy that'll power homes in British Columbia. pic.twitter.com/hpQ9KF1uqh— Catherine McKenna 🇨🇦 (@cathmckenna) May 31, 2019
This weirdo is banning ships that would export ethical oil to Asia. But she’s giddy about welcoming ships bringing toxic garbage back to Canada, to "power homes"?
So The Rebel is sending me to the Philippines, to ask ordinary Filipinos how they feel about being Canada's dumping ground.
You just know that the CBC and the rest of the mainstream media cabal won't do that — they're fully on board with McKenna's climate scam.

June 20, 2019 - It all began when a Twitter account based in Singapore Tweeted at Filipino Foreign Secretary Teddy Loscin Jr about report on Canada's garbage ship returning to the Philippines. From there, Teddy and I soon began a good-humoured and lengthy Twitter exchange.
June 20, 2019 - After speaking to the people of the Philippines about Canada using their country as a trash dump, I wanted to make a small apology, by picking up trash myself.
June 19, 2019 - Jessica Swietoniowski interviews Lea Gurrero, the Country Director for Greenpeace Philippines. They discussed the conflict between Canada and the Philippines and pushing President Duterte to enact a ban on waste imports.
Duterte's Garbage War: Filipinos are sick of Canada's trash
June 18, 2019 - Turns out that dropping our trash off in Manila is a bit rude. Jessica Swietoniowski speaks with local Filipinos in Manila to ask them what they think of the potential garbage war between Canada and the Philippines.
June 18, 2019 - Here in Manila, it's clear that the Philippines is already a poor country. Small wonder that President Duterte is cleaning up the beaches and rejecting the trash dumped here by other countries including Australia and Canada.
June 18, 2019 - Jessica received an update from the Canadian government on the current status of the garbage. After we discovered that the ship the garbage was initially on, had returned to port in Manila we inquired about the garbages current whereabouts. Looks like the next stop is in South Korea!
June 17, 2019 - The Garbage Ship has inexplicably turned around on its way to British Columbia and returned to Manila in the Philippines!
June 12, 2019: Jessica went out to a prominently Filipino area in Toronto to ask how Filipino-Canadians feel about the garbage ship that is excepted back in B.C. at the end of the month.
June 2, 2019: Last week, on The Ezra Levant Show, Ezra went into great detail just how ridiculous this whole saga is.
Between her drunk rant in St. John's to her excited tweet welcoming the shipment of dozens of containers of old, rotting garbage from the Philippines, just how much damage will Catherine McKenna do to Canada's reputation on the world stage?
