The federal government is renewing its travel warning for Canadians headed to Haiti.
Foreign Affairs says Canadians should exercise a “high degree of caution” in Haiti, especially in Port-au-Prince. They add that anyone attending National Carnival
celebrations in February in Cap-Haitien should also be particularly vigilant about safety.
The US State Department has been harsher on Haiti saying Friday that “no one is safe” from kidnapping & violent crime in Port-au-Prince.
It says in recent months travellers arriving in the capital on flights from the United States have been attacked & robbed after leaving the airport, while at least 2 American citizens were killed in robbery & kidnapping incidents.
