Four-twenty-ten Canadians, including many Quebeckers, are repatriated from Guatemala in the day of Sunday.

The aircraft, which is scheduled to depart at 8 a.m. from the Saint-Hubert airport to pick them up, will be back by the end of the day at the international airport Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau de Montréal.

The mission, organized by the organization Casira Amistad (Center of Friendship of International Solidarity of the Appalachian Region), must go in search of workers and of persons in the mission, but also of travellers take advantage of the operation to return to the country.

Julien Bernier, a traveler quebec in Guatemala, says he is extremely relieved to be able to go home at the time the measures became draconian.

“It is a relief, especially as Guatemala, from tomorrow [Sunday] is taking action quite drastic, such as a curfew of 16 h to 4 h of the morning, so it has no more right to wander in the streets. […] Here is zero tolerance,” explained the young man to VAT News via Skype.

All health precautions will be taken to ensure that no traveler returning from Guatemala exhibits symptoms similar to the sars coronavirus.
