CAL crash-landing a warning from God
God might wear pajamas but he neither sleeps nor is He mocked with impunity. Proof positive of the foregoing may, I contend, be gleaned from the crash-landing of the CAL aircraft in Guyana. Was it not safety which was the “tissue” from behind which CAL sought to deny the travelling public of T&T the competitive fare structure provided by REDjet? The fact that there were no fatalities resulting from the two recent incidents involving the local carrier is, I respectfully posit, merely a reaffirmation that God is yet to renounce his Trini citizenship. Even His patience, however, has its limit.
Unless, therefore, His messages are correctly interpreted and the experience and expertise of Capt Ian Brunton is restored to the effective management of CAL while the current incumbent is relegated to doing that which he knows best—which is not running an airline—not even God will guarantee the safety of CAL passengers the next time around.
Regardless of any conclusions to the results of the many investigations into this latest “incident” already in progress, might this latest airline incident, the recent Tobago ferry/orphan disgrace and the ongoing increase in carnage on our roads not be construed as the necessity for restoring the Ministry of Transport to the hardest working and most effective minister in the Government? I rest my case.
