The Nation’s Online Editor Carol Martindale looks at What’s Trending today in Barbados.

Barbados has 120 new citizens and yesterday they were inducted at a citizenship ceremony.

In a separate interview, Parliamentary Secretary in the Prime Minister’s office with responsibility for Immigration, Senator Harry Husbands said Barbados’ citizenship was not for sale.

This is story trending this morning.

B’yond Blssd: “Citizenship should be attainable to any making a positive contribution to the country.”

JCP: “I wonder how much paperwork and endless amounts of money those "immigrants" had to pay to get their status regularised…”

Glenda Martin: “I want to be a citizen. …I just like everything  about Barbados and the people and want to stay there.”

Jason Prescod: “Willing to trade my spot, about here expensive.”

MeLlo Fod: “Proud 100% Bajan here living in Seattle area. I don't see nothing there making me want to come back there to live.. It’s too expensive.”

It's funny that Bajans living abroad say they will never go back to Barbados to live and here in Toronto, most Canadians want to know why I left such a beautiful country to come to live in Canada...I know that Barbados is expensive, so are most countries that we Bajans emigrate to (the USA and Canada included)I know, I have been living her for the past 23 years..There are also many Bajans that are living very comfortably in Barbados..(just saying)
