Filipino president says Canada has one week to take trash back or he will declare war
Filipino media outlets report that Rodrigo Duterte made threats Tuesday about dozens of shipping containers filled with Canadian household and electronic garbage that has been rotting in a port near Manila for nearly six years.
“I want a boat prepared,” Duterte said. “I’ll give a warning to Canada
aybe next week that they better pull that thing out or I will set sail.” Duterte, who is known for his combativeness, threatened to declare war on Canada if the issue isn’t resolved.
“I will advise Canada that your garbage is on the way,” he said. “Prepare a grand reception. Eat it if you want to.” ■
