Re: Discriminatory practices at Fort Charlotte
I am the owner and operator of Taxi # 860. On Saturday past, God blessed me with a two hours tour. My tour started from the Hilton Hotel at 11 a.m.
We proceeded to Fort Charlotte. Upon my arrival, I attempted to drive through the gate of the fort to take my guests ( four of them) on a ride around it.
A female security officer stopped me and told me that I was not allowed to drive through. I asked her why and she told me that only Majestic Tours and The Bahamas Taxi Cab Union are allowed to drive through. I told her that this was discriminatory and I would obey her, but on Monday, I shall call upon you to break down this wall of discrimination and special interest protection which your Party and government are practicing. I had to find away to make up to the tourist and accordingly extended their tour for an additional hour. That as a result of that tour on Saturday, in which the tourist held a luncheon in my honour and paid me very well, I am able to put a little something on my bill at The Bahamas Mortgage Corporation. I demand the right to take my tourist through the gates of Fort Charlotte in the same manner that Majestic Tours and The Bahamas Taxi Cab Union are allowed to do it and an apology forthwith.
Mr. Minister of Tourism break down that wall of discrimination and special interest at Fort Charlotte forthwith.
