I read in The Tribune this morning a headline which read: “Favourable assessment for Exuma dredging, excavation plans.”
It goes on to say that the plans call for dredging 8.8 acres of sea bed and excavate sand and rock at Bell Island in the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park.
I will make no comment. I will, however, ask some questions:
Is this the Exuma Land and Sea Park that is the first of its kind in the world?
Is this dredging operation associated with the same man who just recently donated one million dollars to the Bahamas National Trust?
Is Earl Deveaux Minister of the Environment?
Is this dredging operation associated with the same man whose luxury helicopter was just recently flying the same Earl Deveaux around Exuma?
Was an environmental Impact study done of the area which they propose to dredge?
Who paid for the environmental impact study?
