Smith: Constitution already allows for same-sex marriage - Apr 29, 2016 - 2:16:54 PM

Outspoken attorney Fred Smith, QC, has dismissed the claim of gender equality referendum opponents that a ‘yes’ vote could lead to same-sex marriages – saying that door has already been open for decades.

Declaring that the Grand Bahama Human Rights Association (GBHRA) fully supports the ‘Vote Yes’ campaign, Smith called on Bahamians to unite in the name of equality and send a clear message to the world that The Bahamas is a country which believes in fundamental human rights for all.

“Whether intentionally or through a misunderstanding of the law, the naysayers have managed to spread this very damaging myth about the proposed Bills causing same-sex marriages,” he said...

Vendor Access to Cabbage Beach ‘Issue of Property Rights Not Birth Right’ - Apr 28, 2016 - 11:20:07 PM

It’s not that Atlantis Senior Vice President Ed Fields is not sympathetic to the plight of the Cabbage Beach vendors. In fact, after 16 years of working with the merchants, Fields is the one person most familiar with the issue, which is why, for the most part, he’s chosen to stay out of the fray, opting instead to stand back and allow the emotional dust to settle before speaking his piece.

Fields broke his silence this week, speaking exclusively to respected radio host and attorney Jeff Lloyd, outlining a long and uninterrupted history showing private ownership of the 6-acre beachfront parcel that has been at the centre of heated debate. He also noted numerous opportunities for those who granted temporary licenses to find solutions and rectify a growing maelstrom of discontent...

Beaches abundant with powdery sand. Colorful coral reefs teeming with aquatic life. Crystal clear cerulean water. The economy.

At first glance, it might seem as if one of the items on that list doesn’t belong. However, according to Romi Ferreira, director of the non-profit environmental preservation group Save the Bays, every item on that list impacts the other.

“There’s a direct correlation between economics and our environment,” he said recently to Jeff Lloyd on the Cable television show In Focus. “Economics is how we make money and, for the most part in the Bahamas, our money comes from tourism, which is utilizing our natural environment, like beaches...”

I hereby state unequivocally and for the record that the social and environmental advocacy group known as Save The Bays (STB) has never made a financial contribution of any kind to any political party or individual politician in The Bahamas or elsewhere.

The suggestion that STB is or has ever been a funder of the opposition Free National Movement is totally unfounded and, we believe, nothing more than a calculated attempt by certain agents of the governing party to smear our organization, the FNM, or both with some vague hint of impropriety, all for political gain...
