PM to cut Canada visit short
KINGSTON, Jamaica – Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller will be truncating her official four day visit to Canada to return to Jamaica given the tropical storm now threatening the island.
Finance Minister Dr Peter Phillips, making a statement in Parliament today, said the prime minister was expected in the island later this evening.
Simpson Miller, who engaged in talks with the Canadian government over the last two days, was originally expected to return to the island on Thursday.
Today Dr Phillips said she was "cutting her visit short" to return to take charge of the current hurricane preparations.
