These two former Prime ministers can take a page out of former US president Jimmy Carter book and start a home rebuilding foundation for Hurricane victims. They can lead that effort and help by holding Hammer, Nails, shovels in their hands and getting dirty doing construction work. like jimmy carter's work project "Habitat for Humanity" https://www.habitat.org/volunteer/bui... Just keep them both far from the cookie jar. Let them use their international contacts to raise the funds.

.Weather it was an spill or leak is water under the bridge.It shows that no amount of pre environmental studies can predict catastrophic results. For the goverment to agree to place Oban on Grand Bahama or anywhere in the Bahamas would be like setting this country up for an environment disaster combined with a natural disaster when ever the next hurricane comes along with Oban in place.Dorian was a warning. The disaster at sorth riding point was a small example that can be multiplied with an Oban installation.The government should tell the Oban principles that they are not welcome in the Bahamas. They donnot want Oban in their own country.do not let them take Bahamians for fools.Listen to the envionmentalist. Donnot let the money hungry principles place an Oban ticking time bomb in the Bahamas for the greed of a few people.Mother nature sent us a signal with hurricane Dorian, The Bahamas is in hurricane alley. Cat 5 are becoming more normal.We as humans have a 20 year window to reverse the amount of carbon dioxide we are placing in the atmosphere. we are above the 405.0 PPM today double what it was from the 1960's .Mother nature will reach the tipping point of no return around 2050..Our children and grand children will may not have islands to live on. The Bahamas may very well cease to exist as a country.While the Bahamas on a global level is not responsible for this because we are a small country with a small economy, we can become an example to the world by switching to the green economy..Oban is a step backwards, Make the likes of Peter Krieger and Satpal Dhunna, Oban Energies’ persona non grata in the Bahamas.They can only come here as tourist.Take heed Governments now and in the future, all proposed investments are not suited for these islands. Mother nature is speaking to us with the increase in Hurricaine's Take heed or watch human suffering multiply around the world as it has begun in the Bahamas and many other countries.

I would not normaly agree with many of the stance that Fred Smith takes especially when he is defending rights Bahamas, but finally i can agree with his position on Oban. For the goverment to agree to place Oban on Grand Bahama or anywhere in the Bahamas would be like setting this country up for an environment disaster combined with a natural disaster when ever the next hurricane comes along with Oban in place.Dorian was a warning.

Make the entire east end of Grand Bahama a National park beginning from High Rock. Close down the Burma Oil terminal and remediate the entire area.asap. But most of alll **send a message to the principles of OBAN and tell them to take their plans out of the Bahamas entirely.** Mother nature is speaking to us..The window for us to listen and take heed will be totally closed in about 20 years. We must reverse the destruction to mother earth caused by human greed. hurricaine Dorian was just a warning Take heed or watch human suffering multiply around the world.

The Economy of the Bahamas growing by a minimum 5.0% GDP annually so that this economy can absorb a greater percentage of the high school and college graduates every year with better paying jobs and put a dent in the Brain drain and reduce the unemployment rate.. .

Since Aliv is already onboard with Hauwei. Their transition to 5G will be much more cost effective as compared to BTC . Every technology they are installing during the build out of their network is in preparation for the next big innovative upgrade to 5G . Having Hauwei as a partner (the world leader in 5G technology that even Trump and America is affraid of because they are eating US 5G companies lunch) Will mean they will leap frog BTC shortly and hopefully their financials will significantly turn around and the share holders will see some profits as they pay down a substantial portion of their depth. I would put my money on Aliv compared to BTC anyday. .

Even the great USA has a huge problem with their infrastructure maintenance plan and thats a first world country. "Bridges across the United States are deteriorating, and a new report estimates it will take more than 80 years to fix all of them. More than 47,000 bridges in the United States are in crucial need of repairs, says the American Road and Transportation Builders Association, or ARTBA"
The roads are also a big problem...with two trillion dollars needed presently for road repair according to 2019 estimates. The Dems with the house majority are not letting Trump push through any new infrastructure repair plan so the problem in the Bahamas mirrors that of the USA with our budget constraints.
