Committee and BTC put on ‘Best Flag Day Yet’

Nassau, N.P. - Intermittent showers didn’t deter Haitians, Haitian-Bahamians, and culture enthusiasts from showing up in droves at the Botanical Gardens, Nassau, for the BTC Haitian Flag Day celebrations. Nearly 6,000 supporters clad in the red, blue, and white of the Haitian Flag, came to enjoy the party with entertainment, regional food choices and chances to win a variety of prizes.

The event was an ode to the blend of Haitian and Bahamian culture within the country’s ethnically Haitian communities. Classical Haitian dishes like the fried pork griot and the mackerel-stuffed dumplings called patae, could be found side-by-side with local favourites such as conch fritters and Bahamian baked macaroni...

Nat Cambridge responds to Fred Ferguson letter - May 28, 2015 - 2:17:02 PM

Dear Editor,

I'd like to respond to the recent letter by Fred Ferguson.  Let me begin by saying Mr. Ferguson, that I find it quite un-easing, the hasty and seeming uninformed or inadequately thought assertions and observations expressed in your recent assessment of the performances of Bahamian artists and entertainers during the recent Junkanoo Carnival.

I was initially appalled at your disdain and lack of respect for Bahamian entertainers and artists. But after some thought I came to realize that your statements are born out of a less nefarious mindset. That of lack of faith in, and understanding of the industry you are a leader in and have thrived on for many years ...

Potter’s Cay Dock Trees Pruned to Allow For New Parking Lot Development - May 28, 2015 - 10:53:21 AM


Pruning-S.jpg
NASSAU, The Bahamas -- The pruning of trees at the southern foreshore of Potter’s Cay Dock has been completed in preparation for their removal: once the trees have been removed work can begin on creating a parking lot for patrons of the vendors on the dock.

Tree pruning is a programme of the first phase of re-development of the eastern end of Potter’s Cay Dock.

The Government has allocated $3,122,989.00 for the re-development project, which is going to take place in three phases. It is a product of private and public sector involvement with many of the ideas for the re-development coming from the mailboat operators and various governmental agencies...

Mr. Speaker, this Budget is faithful to the reform plan for a stronger Bahamas that my Government has been pursuing since our present mandate began. Our plan is working. This Budget builds further on that plan.

We have, for instance, succeeded in achieving a dramatic turnaround in the state of our public finances. The GFS Deficit this fiscal year is now estimated at $198 million, as compared to the $539 million Deficit that resulted from the fiscal structure that we inherited in 2012/13. That is a reduction in the Deficit of $342 million...

CCE, "Mixed signals undermining integrity of Government’s Commitment to Equality" - May 27, 2015 - 4:17:10 PM

equality-s.jpg
Nassau, New Providence - As violence against women continues to escalate in the Bahamas, Citizens for Constitutional Equality (CCE) call on the government to make a decision on the pending Constitutional Referendum, and remove all uncertainty over the Country’s position on constitutional equality and nondiscrimination against men and women on the basis of sex. Both the call of history and the demands of justice require an end to this discrimination, and for the granting of access to the full fruits of freedom and equality for all.

The Government’s mixed signals are creating confusion and distrust, showing disregard for the thousands of Bahamians who stand ready to vote in support of equality, not to mention the Bahamians whose lives hang in the balance, questioning whether their hope for change is false...

Roberts: Minnis on wrong side of history yet again on NHI - May 27, 2015 - 11:55:10 AM

Nassau, Bahamas - The following are remarks by Bradley B. Roberts, National Chairman, Progressive Liberal Party:

That familiar FNM refrain of oppose and delay, reprobate and approbate is stale and rings hollow and after forty years of the same old tune is simply tiresome. Such was the case this morning in one of the dailies when Dr. Minnis called for yet another delay in the implementation of National Health Insurance (NHI).

The FNM claimed to support independence, but not in 1973; they thought the country was not ready for the College of The Bahamas in 1974; wrongly predicted economic catastrophe with National Insurance; they opposed ZNS national television; they said no to the Royal Bahamas Defense Force in 1979; opposed Bahamianization

Bahamas Insurance Association responds to Minister Gibson - May 27, 2015 - 11:17:43 AM

BIA-logo.jpg
(Statement) Labour Minister Shane Gibson’s recent attempt to bash the private sector for its good-faith effort to contribute to the achievement of universal health coverage was both unhelpful and unfriendly.

On top of that, his comments are just plain wrong - and he should be in a position to know better. The insurance industry believes, as do many others, that universal health coverage is a necessity and Bahamians should not have to suffer financial hardship to pay for healthcare.

The question for us is not ‘if' universal healthcare should be implemented, the question is ‘how'. The smart thing to do would be to work together to develop the best, most affordable, and least disruptive plan to achieve that goal...
