Philippines recalls ambassador to Canada in row over rubbish – BBC News

Canada sent tonnes of rubbish wrongly labelled as recyclable and then missed a deadline to retrieve it.

The Philippines’ foreign secretary said Canada missed a May 15 deadline to retrieve rubbish shipped out in 2014.

Last month, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said he would “sail to Canada and dump their garbage there”.

Reports say the waste amounts to many dozens of containers filled with common household rubbish like soiled nappies.

“At midnight last night, letters for the recall of our ambassador and consuls to Canada went out,” Philippine Secretary of Foreign Affairs Teddy Locsin Jr said in a tweet.

“Canada missed the… deadline. And we shall maintain a diminished diplomatic presence in Canada until its garbage is ship bound there.”

Mr Locsin said what triggered him to pull out the envoys was Canada’s failure to show up at a meeting with Philippine customs officials.
