Minority Leader in the Tobago House of Assembly Watson Duke has arrived in Toco. Speaking to reporters after, he said his 'swim protest' was worth it. He described the journey as "long and rough" and said he would not encourage anyone to travel to Trinidad via that route.
He disclosed his plans to deliver a letter to President Anthony Carmona, Caribbean Airlines and the Port Authority of Trinidad and Tobago requesting meetings to discuss the sea and air bridge.
He said despite the naysayers they understood their purpose.
"From this day forward, Tobago must be the final deciding voice on the ferry service and the air service," he said.
Duke began his protest earlier this morning from Tobago in an effort to highlight the plight faced by Tobagonians to the ongoing issues on the sea bridge. Duke swam for about an hour before taking a fishing boat. Upon reaching the waters near Toco, Duke and his team swam to shore.
