Duterte threatens ‘war’ against Canada over trash shipped to Philippines

(CNN)Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has threatened to “go to war” with Canada if the country doesn’t take back tons of trash a Canada-based company had shipped to Manila several years ago.

“I’ll give a warning to Canada maybe next week that they better pull that (trash) out,” he said Tuesday, according to CNN Philippines. “We’ll declare war against them, we can handle them anyway.”
According to CNN Philippines, 103 containers holding 2,450 tons of trash were shipped to the Philippines in 2013 and 2014.
