Remarks by PM Christie at the opening of Island House 11 May 2015 - May 22, 2015 - 7:37:52 AM


I am very pleased to be here today to participate in the opening of the Island House, a Bahamian owned and operated boutique hotel in Western New Providence.

The 30-room hotel has been a labour of love for the Holowesko family who are now the proud owners of two residential resort properties in the country, the other being the 23- room, all-Bahamian owned and operated Highbourne Cay Plantations on a private island in the Exuma Cays.

They are slowly being joined by other prominent Bahamian families who with vision and creativity are venturing into the hospitality industry and are introducing luxur...

FNM Deputy Leader: A party of true democracy - May 21, 2015 - 5:21:05 PM

Nassau, Bahamas (May, 21st, 2015)- In a properly functioning democracy there will always be differing opinions on issues of leadership and strategic direction. One of the Hallmarks of the Free National Movement has been and will continue to be its tolerance for such public dissension within and without its ranks, which is a fundamental commitment we have to transparency and a participatory democracy.

Unlike other political parties who seek to tamp down any Public debate or obvious inside dissension under a cloud of secrecy at all costs, which often carries over into their public service lives, the FNM does not aim to do such..

Bahamas National Festival Commission Statement on Outstanding Payments - May 21, 2015 - 5:03:11 PM


The Bahamas National Festival Commission would like to thank the many workers and suppliers who contributed their time, efforts and services to make the inaugural Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival season (2015) a successful event. Without the hard work of volunteers, paid staff and contracts the event would not have been the resounding success that it was.

During the three-day event, we mobilized hundreds of Bahamians who diligently offered their time to ensure all Junkanoo Carnival patrons had a truly enriching experience.

Presently, we are processing payments in compliance with standard government procedures and we are working tirelessly to ensure the process is completed as quickly as possible. Our staff will be calling all of our Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival 2015...

Bahamas Office of the Data Protection Commissioner on the Draft Freedom of Information Bill 2015‏ - May 21, 2015 - 3:29:36 PM


The Office of the Data Protection Commissioner via the press is in possession of the recently released Freedom of Information Bill 2015.

Firstly, I shall like to congratulate the Government and people of The Bahamas for moving one step closer to removing the unnecessary secrecy surrounding government information and allowing ordinary citizens to participate and contribute to all facets of national development.

While, it is my considered view, that the call for openness in governance ought to be properly championed and led by civil society, this Data Protection Commissioner is on record as supporting the implementation of a Freedom of Information Act, as it is an important tool in a healthy and transparent democracy. Our country stands to benefit.

Cannes: From the Inside-Out - May 20, 2015 - 6:33:00 PM

Cannes-4-sm.jpg
Cannes, France - Collaboration. Communication. The idea of operating as one unit has been a core theme in these essays from Cannes. Such a theme made watching Pixar’s new film Inside Out the most memorable experience I’ve had at the festival. Disney’s Pixar Studios is a studio consisting of several computer animation filmmakers. They’re famously collaborative, all operating as one unit. John Lassater, who’s been called as its “Creative Officer”, heads the studio. Mr. Lassater directed Toy Story, the first film unveiled from Pixar in 1995. Since then there have been two more Toy Story films (making it one of the best trilogies in the history of cinema) produced over a ten-year period and in between several classic titles from Pixar. These titles include Ratouille, and The Incredible, (directed by Brad Bird), Wall-E and Finding Nemo (directed by Andrew Stanton), and Up (directed by Pete Docter). Pete Docter returns to direct Inside-Out, Pixar’s fifteenth film, and while it is a bold and somewhat dubious declaration to proclaim this to be Pixar’s best (there are so many jewels in this crown) I’ll go out on a limb and say it anyway. This might be the best Pixar film ever. I’ll go a bit further and say that this might be the best film of 2015...

Bahamas Press Club on Freedom of Information Bill - May 20, 2015 - 3:31:18 PM


The Bahamas Press Club 2014 is thankful to the government that after a lengthy delay the Freedom of Information bill is likely to see the light of day and could be brought into force, notwithstanding that a similar bill was passed in 2012 but never enacted.

The release of this draft bill proves our long held contention that there is no reason an act could not be produced and passed before 2016 because all that is needed is the focused attention of a committed government.

On the face of it the new draft bill will seem to deepen the democracy in affording the people to freely access information from various government agencies...

Calling it “a step in the right direction,” Save The Bays CEO Vanessa Haley-Benjamin today congratulated the government on the release of the draft Freedom of Information Act, but said to be effective the final legislation must provide for an independent commissioner and contain “more teeth than loopholes.”

“Releasing the long-awaited Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) draft this week was a step in the right direction and Save The Bays welcomes the news and congratulates the government,” said Benjamin. “But a step is just that. One step in a long journey..."
