Canada to haul back mountains of trash sent to Philippines years ago
( CNN) Canada will take back tons of scrap carried to the Philippines years ago, in a major victory for President Rodrigo Duterte in a diplomatic row which saw him recall his ambassador to Ottawa.
Canada had already agreed to take back the litter but missed a May 15 deadline set by Duterte, prompting him to recall the envoy .
McKenna’s announcement came soon after Duterte’s spokesman Salvador Panelo announced
that local officials had been ordered to find a private send fellowship to move the rubbish back to Canada.
