CANADIAN Prime Minister Justin Trudeau revealed Tuesday that he mentioned to President Rodrigo Duterte Canada's concern over the alleged extrajudicial killings in the Philippines' brutal war on illegal drugs.
Despite his rockstar-like arrival on Sunday, environment activist Greenpeace urged Trudeau to take back the garbage that Canada dumped in the Philippines four years ago.
Both Duterte and Trudeau were present at the ASEAN-Canada's 40 Commemorative Summit at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) which was also held in Pasay City.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau delivered an impassioned pitch to core members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Tuesday to open the door to Canada joining its exclusive and influential circle.
"Canada is deeply committed to multilateral institutions", Trudeau added.
Greenpeace also expressed hope that Trudeau won't let the garbage become Canada's legacy in the Philippines. Trudeau was quoted saying in CNN report, "Every child deserves the best start in life, that's why Canada is helping mothers around the world get access to quality services like those offered at the Likhaan Center for Women's Health".
On Monday, the White House said human rights was also discussed in Duterte's talks with U.S. President Donald Trump.
Trudeau stressed that Canada has earned a reputation for being able to be frank and firm in discussing issues like rule of law and human rights with partners around the world, adding that "it's very much what people expect of Canada".
The opportunity arrives at a time when Trudeau is making efforts to raise Canada's worldwide profile and demonstrate it can wrestle with complicated challenges, at home and overseas.
Francisco Fernandez of the Philippine embassy in Ottawa says Canada sought the invitation and Manila didn't hesitate to grant it, partly because of trade and investment ties and partly due to the 837,000 people of Filipino descent who live in Canada.
Trudeau was asked later in the day about why he's interested in expanding Canada's engagement in the Asia-Pacific region.
"As a Pacific nation, Canada has long understood the importance of a close relationship with Southeast Asia", said Trudeau.
