Amidst heightened tensions -between the Philippines and Canada over the garbage row, which escalated to the point of a recall of Filipino diplomats, the Philippine Consulate in Toronto announced the untimely passing of their consulate general, Rosalita Sayoc Prospero in the early morning of May 28.
The consulate has said consul general Prospero’s remains will be brought home to the Philippines in accordance to her wishes — and a memorial service will be organized, and details will be released in due course.
Prospero served as consul general in Toronto since 2015.
Prior to that, she was assigned in Sydney and Paris.
The career diplomat also served as executive director of the office of American affairs of the Department of Foreign Affairs.
We at ABS-CBN News and The Filipino Channel extend our deepest condolences to the family of consul general Prospero — and her consulate family and friends in Toronto.
