  • Page Views 1322
  • On May 16, the Philippine government announcement that it has recalled its ambassador and
    consuls in Canada after Canada missed the May 15 deadline to take back garbage shipped to
    the Philippines in 2013 and 2014 by an Ontario company.
    Global Affairs Canada today issued the following statement:
     
    Canada values its deep and longstanding relationship with the Philippines.
    Canada has repeatedly conveyed to the Philippines government its commitment to promptly ship and
    dispose of the Canadian waste in the Philippines. We remain committed to finalizing these
    arrangements for the return of the waste to Canada. 
     
    Canada is disappointed by this decision to recall the Philippines ambassador and consuls general.
    However, we will continue to closely engage with the Philippines to ensure a swift resolution of this
    important issue.
