Canada’s Garbage in Manila Really Stinks. Adult diapers aging for 5 years.
There are not enough snarky remarks to add up to how it feels to stand and watch a beautiful Manila harbour sunset, until your eyes water from the stench of Canada’s trash.
The Photo and its story: Many of Canada’s large steel containers of trash have been removed from a ship in Manila, dropped on truck trailers and hauled to the Tarlac land fill site. The costs involved in cleaning up this mess are not insignificant in Manila but do not comprise a hardship for Canada. The rights of the Philippines people have been violated. The government of Canada stands in disgrace before the entire world as a polluter of a developing nation. Trudeau failed to act responsibly for five years. Even though it says it will fix the problem, Canada hasn’t, hence the J. Trudeau first-term appearance in Ottawa maybe written in the history books as the “Trash Years”. Trudeau needs to apologise, fix the problem, pull his socks up and take the trash out. Hopefully his mistake of arrogantly ignoring the people of the Philippines will not be repeated in the Prime Minister’s next term in the Canadian House of Commons. Shame. Shame. – FPMag
With a population density of 71,263 persons per square kilometer, Manila is the most densely populated city area in the world and most certainly doesn’t need any other nation’s trash.
During the Monsoon season, the city’s sewers and landfill sites flood and Canada’s trash is back, floating down the streets.
Five-year old decaying Canadian adult diapers, (from the geriatric Canadian Senate?) and general household trash comprises thousands of tons of Canadian trash shipped to a buyer of plastics in the Philippines. The containers turned out to be unsorted household garbage. One could say that something smells fishy but standing near these containers the odor is more like an overflowing outhouse.
After more than two dozen containers were loaded into the Tarlac land fill site and some 8 units went missing, 69 containers are still stored out of a total 103 steel shipping containers sent via cargo ship of the type shown in the FPMag photo below. The culprit sending the tons of garbage into Manila from 2013 to 2014 was Chronic Inc. of Ontario Canada to be received by its Valenzuela City-based counterpart Chronic Plastics which apparently didn’t want the trash and vamoosed.
The Peaceful Beauty of a Manila Sunset is exactly that until Canada’s Garbage just north of here Makes Your Eyes Water

The Photo and its story. Diversity of sights, sounds and fragrance plus the absolute beauty of a harbour that supports nearby a Greater Manila* population more than all of Canada’s with a city population density of over 110,000 person per square mile. That’s 363 persons per Km2 across the thousands of islands of the Philippines compared to Canada’s 4 persons per Km2 nationwide. (*Incl.Manila, Quezon City, Caloocan, Las Piñas, Makati, Malabon, Mandaluyong, Marikina, Muntinlupa, Navotas, Parañaque, Pasay, Pasig, San Juan, Taguig, and Valenzuela, as well as the municipality of Pateros.)
The Photo and its story. This ship in Manila harbour is carrying the same kind of steel cargo containers a Canadian firm filled with garbage and shipped to Manila. The trash is worth nothing in fact has a considerable cost of removal attached to it but the remaining containers are valued at about $140,000 says an Ontario broker of used shipping containers.
The cost is not a hardship for Canada but the trash left stinking in Manila for all the time Trudeau has been in office is a reprehensible insult to the Filipino people, 105 million of whom are behind their President who jocularly threatens war on Canada.
But it is no joke President Duterte has pulled diplomats out of Canada effective this past week.
Philippines Threatens War and Recalls its Ambassador and Consuls.
The Ambassador and his pals came back to the Philippines aboard PAL which is likely the most comfortable and friendly airline in the world. For the sailors and soldiers who must bring war to Canada, the comfort level will not be so exotic.
The Pacific Ocean in a Philippines naval vessel, a thing pretty much similar to a Cape Breton lobster boat, would take maybe two years to get to Ottawa after crossing through the North West passage, risking all the hazardous protruding periscopes of Russian, American and British submarines.
The south bound leg to the Gulf of the Saint Lawrence would take the armada past Labrador and Newfoundland where abundant fuel and supplies are available late in the day when Newfies awaken after a night of darts, ginger ale and screech. But there is no way a Filipino could handle screech so add a few weeks to the trip for search and rescue.
The Armada-PH will likely hit the winter freeze by the time of reaching the Ottawa river. But the sailors of the armada need to have paid their lock fees and hand up their ticket to the foreign owned St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation officer in charge at each lock. If not, the St. Lawrence River, as everyone knows since 1812, is a tough place from which to wage war on Canada. Following that conflagration in 1812 America’s wooden ships were great firewood lasting until the early 1900s.
People have walked from the Saint Lawrence River all the way up to Ottawa and Hull but if you have ever listened to a Filipino nanny carefully, she’ll tell you the first thing she noticed in Canada was that her feet were freezing.
Filipinos don’t have shoes. They are born with two pair of shower flip flops. All 105 million of them have exactly two pair. Even the babies. One pair is for daily wear and one is for Sunday wear at Iglesia Ni Cristo.
The Photo and its story. Trash talk. It is not a ‘bro-mance’ but Trudeau and Trump did together kidnap a Chinese Princess, Meng Wanzhou. Each has thoroughly earned the hatred of 1.4 billion Asians who pretty much own North America. That makes the Anglo pair tight. Albeit, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte is almost a politically-identical twin of Donald Trump say many pundits. (FPMag editors disagree.) The two identical presidents enjoyed the benefit of millions of dollars from dictator’s pockets, electing Mr. Trump and Mr. Duterte with the help of Russian smart-guys and the stupid geek from Facebook. Hence the story in this illustration by Rosa is that these two man-children are neighbors and pals against Duterte and his neighbor and buddy-pal Xi Jinping of Beijing.
This means these four boys will never go to war, its just trash talk.
