Filipino Foreign Secretary Teddy Locsin and Jessica Swietoniowski discuss Trudeau's Garbage Ship on Twitter

Rebel Staff

The Philippines have taken to our Jessica Swietoniowski, currently on assignment covering Trudeau's Garbage Ship in Manila. Filipino foreign secretary Teddy Locsin Jr. has found a Twitter friend in The Rebel thanks to our sympathetic coverage of President Duterte's decision to send Canadian garbage back to our shores.

It all began When Locsin responded to a concerned tweet from an account based in Singapore:

Jessica then sent Secretary Loscin a link to her report on the Garbage Ship stopping in South Korea. And he responded:

Ezra Levant commented on how Jessica's rapport with foreign leaders is even better than Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland:

If the Filippino Secretary of Foreign Affairs is responding to our journalism, then it's clear that we're making a difference. You can keep up with all of Jessica's reports from the Philippines at GarbageShip.com

Would have been icing on the cake if Jessica had managed a live interview with the foreign secretary.
