I wonder what’s the opposition parties stance is on what the PM had to say about continuing on the road to destruction with oil drilling?
From his statement I take it that he does not care about the thoughts and ideas of anyone else but those of himself. I wonder if he has done any kind of research himself on the topic that he is so sure Belize needs.
Jules Vasquez “Is there a sufficient risk/reward, being that Belize is priceless non-renewable marine resources could be at risk? In the event of a disaster as has been proven can occur.”
PM Dean Barrow “But we are at risk in the event of natural disaster; we are at risk as a part of the normal process and rhythm of life.”
So he would rather go down the path of taking a more than guaranteed disaster from an oil spill than go with historically proven very low possibility of a disaster by natural means. It’s amazing that one can simply toss aside the respect he should have for the citizens of Belize and their wishes and pleas..
