Mitchell: CAL lost $500M under UNC

San Fernando East MP Randall Mitchell says that while the United National Congress (UNC) is promising a host of things in their Local Government Elections campaign, citizens should consider how they wasted millions of dollars with little to show for it.

“Don’t be fooled by the UNC Propaganda, talking about they're working and putting on a yellow hard hat for pictures. We know them by their past deeds, it is the same old UNC from 2010 – 2015. Nothing has changed,” Mitchell said.

He was speaking at the People’s National Movement's (PNM ) public meeting at Skiffle Steel Orchestra in San Fernando on Tuesday night.

Mitchell, the Minister of Tourism, said that under the UNC, Caribbean Airlines lost over US$500 million but under the PNM, the company returned to profitability in 2017.

He said this was one example of how the PNM rescued the country following the crisis it met when elected into government in 2015.
