Petition To Stop Canadian Garbage

I'm drinking the Kool-Aid and doing a whitehouse.gov petition. Let's call their bluff and see what they actually do.

Sign petition here.

This has been tried before and to stop it would be a violation of NAFTA.

If we're willing to sell the landfill space, then trash will continue to pour across the border.

If we were serious about stopping it, we would have to ban the creation of new landfills, and tax the shit out of the existing ones (more so than we already do).

You're wasting your time even reading the petition, waste is a commodity protected under NAFTA.

If you would have "wasted" the 15 seconds to read the petition you would have known that it suggests changing NAFTA. Treaties can be changed.

Sign it the last time. Did nothing. They are not going to change it. Too much money for it to stay the way it is.

There is money in them there land fills

I could be wrong but I thought one of our major exports is scrap and trash.

There are no new landfills allowed in mi. Only can expand existing landfills

Shut up you and you. This is a thread against Canadian dumpers, donít go bring our hypocrisy into it. Nobody cares that we export our trash all over the world.
