Canadian trash in PH can be shipped back but who will pay for it - PM Trudeau



In a press conference on the sidelines of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Summit, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that Canada continues to work towards resolving the problem over a private firm's garbage shipment to the Philippines in 2013 after the government tried but failed to take the waste back.
"We also discussed the garbage issue which has been a long-standing irritant and I committed to him as I am happy to commit to you all now that Canada is very much engaged in finding a solution on that," he said.



"Canadian legal regulations prevented us from being able to receive the waste back to Canada. We had legal barriers and restrictions that prevented us from taking it back, but that's done now," Trudeau said.

Trudeau said this was the major block to shipping several tons of Canadian trash back to its homeland.

This legal impediment has now been solved making it “theoretically possible” to ship he garbage back to Canada.

“But there are still a number of questions around who will pay for it,” he added.



Trudeau said that Canada’s exportation of several shipping containers worth of trash, including soiled adult diapers, was a product of a “commercial transaction that did not involve governments.”

Even so, the Canadian prime minister said he assured President Rodrigo Duterte his government is committed to solve the problem.
