LOOK: Filipino-Canadians in Ontario Demands Apology from Justin Trudeau for Insulting Duterte and the Philippines

A group of Filipino-Canadians in Toronto, Canada is asking Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to issue a public apology for insulting Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and the Philippines.

President Duterte said he was angered and insulted after Prime Minister Trudeau spoke about his government's war on drugs, which has been widely condemned for leaving thousands of suspects dead.

Trudeau afterwards said Duterte was receptive to his comments and stressed their exchange was cordial and positive.

Give yourself a little respect and stop copying our original works especially to those fake Duterte supporters who are running. This is our original idea and translating this content to Tagalog, or taking screenshots and posting on your site is still the same as copying. Use your brains and write your own original content."

But Duterte later told reporters that he had refused to provide an explanation for the killings.

I said I will not explain. It is a personal and official insult, Duterte said.It angers me when you are a foreigner, you do not know what exactly is happening in this country. You don't even investigate.

"I only answer to the Filipino. I will not answer to any other bullsh*t, especially foreigners. Lay off."

Trudeau said he raised concerns about rights abuses and extrajudicial killings in Duterte's anti-drug campaign when he met with the president yesterday ahead of Canada's summit in the Philippines with the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

The Canadian prime minister was the first leader of the 20 attending this week's ASEAN summit and related meetings who has publicly said he brought up the touchy issue with the volatile Filipino leader.

Marcus Lorenz, chief organizer of Ontario Filipino-Canadian Federation (OFCF), said in a statement on Toronto TV on Thursday that Trudeau is ruining the relationship between the Philippines and Canada and should issue a public apology.

Lorenz, a political activist criticized Trudeau for his “irresponsible meddling” on the Philippine affairs.

“I think on the first place he shouldn’t be there. We were actually wondering why the Canadian Prime Minister attended the meeting of Asean countries. Did President Duterte invited him? I thought not. He should issue an apology for insulting the Filipinos”, Lorenz said.

Lorenz, a Canadian-born lawyer to a Filipina mother and French father, said his group of more than 300,000 will give Trudeau a serious lesson for meddling Duterte’s affairs.
