9000 Dollar fine😂😂😂. Make it 9 MILLIONS.
Fines are VERY profitable. Ask the CEO. Guess taxes are going up, too bad we do t need the jobs...
Canada is a democray, always remember that. Also is this the definition of autocracy, this video?
Moving waste to another part of the world still pollutes our world except the citizens of poorer countries suffer the bad health effects first.
The fine is too low. Only $1500 per violation is not enough to stop the crime.
Nothing new to see here.
India🇮🇳 😂😂 I am an Indian.
A dirty Canadian secret.
Funny how , one goverment fines another government and have it settled , and who gets effected .. the marginalized communities and really poor people . Reality check

Watching this i am horrified and ashamed. I already limit my plastics but I will now boycott them with enthusiasm. DO BETTER CANADA
ILLEGAL TRASH ???! 😂😂🙄
Bs news again.
More fear programming where the people feel there is no control over the madness.
Keep calm ,
This too shall pass.
Evils on its way out.
Why don't we burn or bury our paper waste? Either carbon neutral energy, or carbon sequestration.
We're doing the same thing with CO2 emissions. Instead of doing production here, we export it, which in most cases produces more CO2, and we have it shipped here for even more emissions. The whole environmental movement of recycling and reducing CO2 emissions, even though CO2 is nothing more than plant food, is another way to funnel public funds to elites and their friends, and does nothing to actually clean things up.
We have more the enough reserves we could be dumping the garbage at. No reason to send over seas.
