Rev. Terrence Jones' formal petition to PM Christie against VAT - Sep 19, 2014 - 9:36:25 AM


Good day to you and your Cabinet. This letter is a formal petition against the implementation of the Value-Added Tax (VAT). Please cancel your plan to introduce VAT into our economy. The impoverished, which constitutes the majority of our population, cannot handle VAT. It is economically wrong and socially wrong.

You say you are “For the people” and claim “Bahamian First.” Well consider this sir: A businessman who lives off 10% of his income imports materials for $1,000.oo pays 7.5% VAT, then marks up his merchandise by 50%...

Freeport, Bahamas - Despite many recent challenges, this week ​we at the Humane Society of Grand Bahama (HSGB) were grateful to Pilots n Paws, and specifically pilots Donna Shannon, Pat Picornell, and Allan Weltman.  They flew over here to rescue 19 shelter dogs whose chances of local adoption are slim to none, given that our local adoption rate hovers around 7% of our 1500+ annual intake.

Two pups went to a West End GB second home owner in Washington DC who helped rescue them a few months ago and waited for them to be old enough and healthy enough for us to send to her.  The rest went to ​some of our favorite rescue friends in Colorado.

Most of the pups were treated to an overnight stay in Ft Lauderdale with our amazing Florida volunteers rallying once again to care for them and get them on to their final destination. It takes a village to rescue - whether one dog or nineteen...
