First it was the Philippines and now Malaysia is the second Asian country calling out Canada and demanding that we take our garbage back. Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has even threatened to declare war on Canada! Malaysia meanwhile is planning to return upwards of 3,000 tonnes of contaminated waste, which was allegedly erroneously labeled as recyclable. Environment Minister Catherine McKenna says she is looking into potential wrongdoing by the private company and she blames the previous Conservative government. She also says our recycling industry is “amazing”. What do you think? Libby explores Canada’s practice of disposing of recyclables in this manner with Vito Buonsante, Plastics Program Manager at Environmental Defense.
