The suspension of direct flights between Morocco and Canada, announced at the end of August and which was to be held until September 29 according to the first announcements, given the epidemiological situation in the Kingdom, has been extended until October 29.
The extension of the measure was noted by some Internet users on the Government of Canada site, without it having been the subject of any particular communication, while nearly 11,000 Moroccan-Canadians found themselves stranded in Morocco.
The writer and journalist Mohamed Lotfi, residing in Canada, has long criticized this extension, having heard “no political leader, no expert give a reasonable justification for the suspension of flights” and accuses the Canadian and Quebec leaders of inaction in the face of to this “absurd” decision when no action has been taken for Canadian nationals in Morocco, blocked by the suspension of flights.
At the same time, he is surprised that flights from India do not experience this extension while the epidemiological situation there testifies to a faster circulation of the virus, with 29,600 new cases per day against 1,600 in Morocco. , while the Indian population is 37 times larger than that of the Kingdom.
