Duterte's Garbage War: Filipinos are sick of Canada's trash

Jessica SwietoniowskiRebel Correspondent

Turns out that dropping our trash off in Manila is a bit rude.

Canada's #GarbageShip has logged more miles than a snowbird, so be sure to catch up with the story at GarbageShip.com!

As Liza said the Canadian Company went under, but this is to be expected with most GREEN COMPANIES. As soon as the Government subsidies run out the owner calls bankruptcy. (after he has a nice stash of cash put away.

Obama was the King of subsidizing Green Solar power, wind mills etc., but as soon as this equipment started getting old and needed repairs or replacement, usually the subsides ran out and the Company went under leaving the taxpayer to dismantle the rusted Wind Turbine farm. This will happen to Ontario soon, so if you thought Wynne was bad now, wait 10 years.

These resources could be better spent in to an investigation of the fuel truck that “accidentally” rammed an airplane in TO 3 x. No name or ID for the driver and precious little else either. Just Goodale’s assurance that there was no national security risk. Which means there was a national security risk. Why all the secrecy? When the feds withhold a persons name in an “incedent” it usually means another of those peaceniks who can’t be named.

You are correct in the aspect that we cannot blame Trudeau or Harper for that matter Peter, but we can and should blame the government of the province that the garbage originated from. Every province has specific laws that companies must adhere to, that is why “where the garbage originated from” should be disclosed. This would be in their records, where the company was located, what areas/where the “recyclables” were collected and sent for processing into the containers etc.. The silence on this is stunning which lends to the theory that this is another Liberal scandal being buried.

As much as I despise and loathe Trudeau, we cannot blame him.

We also cannot blame Harper even though it was sent out at the time he was in office because it was a private company the sent the garbage to the Philippines.

Neither government directed the operations of that private company.

So … Rebel Media, stop call it Trudeau’s garbage. And Kyle James, stop blaming Harper.

Kyle James any basis for that or are you like other idiots who blame Harper for the Veteran lawsuit that started under the Liberals??

Someone was paid to take it for recycling, and then did nothing with it. Just piled it up. Now it becomes our fault?

I wonder if they feel the same about Canada “dumping” financial aid there? Maybe they should return that, too. Then there are the Filipinos who come to Canada on work permits only for sending money back home: if they are that disgusted with us, find a job at home.

More than 90% of the plastics in the oceans come from South East Asia and China. If.they have plastics in their waters and on their beaches, they can look to themselves.

If anything this was a provincial matter turned federal as no details of its origin (in Canada) is being released, which raises the question what are they hiding? Another Liberal scandal? Odds are that it was a Liberal run company in the Greater Toronto Area and under Wynne’s reign, but hey the standard fallback position in all things Liberal is blame Harper. Wynne blamed Harris and Harper up to the day she was kicked to the curb.

I wonder what the initial agreement was between the two countries? Was it between a company here and a company over there, under the rules of the two governments? The company in Canada seems to be out of business, making it the government of the day’s responsibility. But what was the Philippine role in this escapade?
