Canadian ship carrying 69 garbage containers allegedly labeled as recyclable plastic, back to Canada from the Philippines, yesterday.

It ended a series of disputes that began in 2013, affecting diplomatic relations between Ottawa and Manila.

The waste was removed from Anna Maersk’s container ship docked near the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal and arrived at the Deltaport GCT in the British Columbia Delta, the GCT said in a statement.

Vancouver Metro spokeswoman Sarah Lusk said the waste would be sent to the Waste-to-Energy facility in Burnaby where it would be burned.

Waste Containers were part of a diplomatic dispute between Manila and Ottawa when Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte threatened to ‘fight’ with Canada.

Duterte also called on his senior diplomat from Canada after the country failed to meet the deadline to recapture the concession by May 15.

This issue is not the only factor that affects the relations between the two countries.

Last year, Duterte ordered the military to cancel a US $ 233 million deal to buy 16 helicopters from Canada, after Ottawa expressed concern it might be used to combat rebels.
