Canadians among those stuck in Bali as Indonesia orders mass evacuation due to erupting volcano

Some Canadians have been trapped in Bali amid the evacuation and airport closure. Global Affairs Canada said 403 Canadians in Bali have registered with its Registration of Canadians Abroad service.

“As registration is voluntary, this is not necessarily a complete picture of Canadians in the region,” Global Affairs spokesperson Brianne Maxwell said in an email.

    Are these Canadian Canadians, or ‘Canadians’ like those all of a sudden trying to flee Lebanon back in 2006?

      I suspect they are probably Canadians, being that Bali has become a hot tourist destination. I was fortunate to visit Bali prior to that (actually the same for Nepal) and have great memories of the place. Don’t know if it has changed, but during my time there Bali was Hindu without Muslims, which is exactly why I have great memories of it.

          According to Wiki, Bali is 83% Hindu and 14% Muslim. But Bali is an island in the overwhelmingly Muslim country, Indonesia. The 2002 Muslim atrocity, against mostly Australians in Bali, show why people should never vacation in or near Islamic countries. We should boycott anything and everything Muslim, but particularly vacation spots, for safety’s sake.

        Seriously? Bali supposedly the honeymoon capital of the world and I thought it was kind of a dump. Couldn’t stand the open sewer eau de perfume, food was lousy and never did find any nice sandy beaches. Had to swim in the hotel pool with a bunch of snobby Italians and Germans. Nothing but rocks and ugly algae seaweed in front of the Nusa Dua hotel. I visited when it was a Hindu island also. Wouldn’t go back even on a free ticket. I was so relieved to fly out there to Singapore where they had Kentucky Fried chicken. 🙂

          Sounds romantic!

          Like I said it was before it became known as a tourist destination. I enjoyed the music and the Hindu celebrations at the time. I didn’t go for the beaches or what one does when on vacation. For me it was part of my exploring and learning at the time. Nepal as I said was also another nice and interesting place at least for me, but again it was prior to the hippy invasion. No way would I ever return to any of those places now, and in fact safe places are becoming as rare as hens’ teeth thanks to Islam.

    Wait ….Justin saw the ‘ Boy On The beach ‘ hoax and rescued 24,000 muslims from Syria and yet getting these Canadians out isn’t Canada’s problem .
