Sorry, for the accusation, Andrew. I heard our Minister of Weather say it was coming to Canada.

Oh, by the way Al, since you claim that it’s a “lie” that it wasn’t to come directly to Canada, can you show me where they said it was going directly? Clearly you possess better information than anyone else, perhaps you would like to share it.

“The ship had already left he Phillipines bound for Canada. So why would it return to he Philippines as ’a port of call” it had already left? A port you have left would not be a “port of call”. It is not “enroute”. It was left behind."

It left to go to Hong Kong, Singapore and some no-name port in Malaysia. Not Canada. it’s not due in Canada until July 20 and it takes a couple weeks to do that.

It went back to Manila to drop off some of the containers it picked up in HK. Have you ever wondered what a Fedex route looks like? There is some doubling back. Cargo ships do the same thing, it’s not all point-to-point, and they didn’t charter a 250m long carrier to move a couple dozen containers, it is on a commercial ship that has other customers. They wanted to get rid of the containers so they put it on the first available ship that had Vancouver on its itinerary, even though the routing would be ponderous. There are sites tracking these ships, it never set out for Canada, it went east and returned to Manila on its way back.

There are no “lies”, Al. It is a ship that was on a tour of southeast Asia with an eventual trip to Canada a few months later. The garbage will be well-traveled but it will get home. That was the intent. This isn’t news.

One thing I will Agree with Andrew on is that this is not much of a story. I think the time would be better spent investigating the Toronto airplane being rammed 3 x. No name given so we know it was one of those radical kind of bearded sort of things who remain nameless to prevent identifying those who sort of kind of hate us and want to establish one of those caliphate kind of boxy things.

What is actually interesting is the lengths the Andrew will go to to support the stupidest and most corrupt PM in history.

The ship had already left he Phillipines bound for Canada. So why would it return to he Philippines as ’a port of call" it had already left? A port you have left would not be a “port of call”. It is not “enroute”. It was left behind.

These large ships do not do “milk runs”. they are not old fashioned tramp steamers. They pick up a cargo and of huge containers that are sealed and go to their port of destination. They may stop at one or two more ports to pick up more containers but they don’t stop to hoist a net full of bananas into the hold. But hey don’t wander aimlessly at sea for months.

Why does Andrew want to believe and promote lies and liars?

So let me get this straight… A cargo ship containing 69 containers of “Canadian crap” sails out across the Pacific yet somehow returns to the Philippines, and that’s no big deal?? Given that Climate Barbie was standing at the dock in Vancouver waiting for its arrival??? Boo Hoo Barbie! Your ship has evidently not arrived!…
commented 2019-06-18 00:40:02 -0400
Geez, Andrew is getting cranky.
commented 2019-06-18 00:18:29 -0400
What’s interesting is that the Rebel is inventing drama where none exists. No, it’s not “inexplicable” (cargo ships often have many ports of call, they put it on a ship that would eventually reach Vancouver rather than wait for one that would go directly) No, it’s not a world exclusive, and no, it’s not a big deal. Nor a conspiracy.

It’s but a cargo ship doing some milk-runs before crossing the Pacific. Nothing more, nothing less. Better support this “journalism”!

Out of sight, out of mind.
If that ship doesn’t arrive in Vancouver, there will be no media coverage.
No media coverage = they will have forgotten all about it.
I wish Turdy Tot would take a ship like that and never come back.
Out of sight, out of mind.
commented 2019-06-18 00:09:58 -0400
Also, the presence of the story in the Sun indicates it’s not a “world exclusive”.

The ship turned around and headed back into port. Somebody cut a deal. No doubt it was under way before the ship set sail. And when they saw that the Philippines President wasn’t kidding around, our illustrious deal makers kicked in more of our money. We should have taken that garbage back. It was our misdeed that put it in their country. Now we will owe more to someone. Trudeau will blame Harper more than likely. I don’t care who is to blame, we should have made it right. Next time we want to get rid of a shit load, I mean ship load of garbage. Let’s ship out for disposal our entire Government.
commented 2019-06-17 20:55:27 -0400
If we go to war with the Philippines I’m going on their side
commented 2019-06-17 19:57:02 -0400
Am I the only one getting no volume?
commented 2019-06-17 19:37:44 -0400
Guess Trudy changed his mind, he didn’t want his shi? to come home. He knows he is already full of it. Plan B, back to the Crapper………..
Point of interest, Crapper was the name of the gentleman who financed the production of the, then, newly invented Flush Toilet and when the first ones came on the market, each one had the name Crapper on it. This is why we have the expression ‘I need to take a Crap’ and so on.
I just new that everybody would be interested in in this C…

Thats ungrateful poor people for you!. How dare they not appreciate our garbage. They should be thankful. We Australians are sending our garbage to Indonesia were they gratefully use it to cook tofu because it’s cheaper than wood. Aside from the lung diseases and the water ways being contaminated, I hear the tofu tasts great!
commented 2019-06-17 18:44:59 -0400
No doubt… Trudeau cut a huge cheque to someone.. /s.. more of money out to foreign lands… and Trudeau yaks about.. we don’t have enough money to pay our Veterans…. A freakin garbage tanker roaming around in the ffen.. ocean costing Canadian’s millions because of a bunch of twisted sick in the head GOOFBALLS!!! WHEN ARE THE CUFFS GOING TO BE AROUND TRUDEAU’S WRIST’S??!!

The “Garbage Ship” seems to be an eco-version of “Where’s Waldo”
commented 2019-06-17 15:14:03 -0400
Just dump it in the ocean and call it a day.
commented 2019-06-17 14:31:50 -0400
For a ship to turn around, other than for emergency, costs the shipping company lots of money. The only way it would turn around, reversing it’s course, is if mega bucks were involved.
It would be interesting to know how much this has cost the Canadian taxpayer.
commented 2019-06-17 13:44:56 -0400
At a loss for what that could mean.
