I tell them Trinidad owns an airline and the Government can very easily fly us home without opening borders,” Bayne said yesterday.
Bayne is part of a group of 22 T&T citizens in Canada lobbying the Government to send a repatriation flight to allow them to reunite with their families here.
Since then, they were able to communicate with other T&T citizens stuck there and became part of the group lobbying the Government for a flight home.
Minister of National Security Stuart Young says the Government is working to repatriate all nationals stranded abroad by the lockdown of the borders due to COVID-19.
His comment came in response to an appeal from a group of nationals stranded in Canada to be repatriated home.
