Mutya Pilipinas Canada 2019 bet Amber delos Reyes is happy now that the garbage issue between the Philippines and Canada has been settled.
“It was in the news in Canada Tuesday night. It’s now in Vancouver. They placed it (garbage) there,” said Delos Reyes when asked about the controversial garbage issue during an exclusive interview in Quezon City Wednesday afternoon, hours after she arrived in Manila for the Mutya Pilipinas 2019 competition in August.
Sixty-nine containers of trash from Canada dumped in Manila six years ago were shipped out of the country last May 31.
They were all loaded on MV Bavaria docked at Subic Bay.
Asked if the garbage issue would happen again, Delos Reyes said: “Now that we are so aware of it, I don’t think it will happen again.”
