Congrats, Sen Burke!!!!
The present Minister of Finance makes you look like Einstein, but you are an Economist unlike the other one who has positioned himself to put his hand on the People’s Coffers.
Even though I am still mad with the NDC for not doing what they were supposed to do or to stay in power and don’t blame the expelled Members, I will like to give you a few suggestions on how to get money back in the economy without having to borrow any money.
Construction is the area of work that circulates money in the economy in any country and family because Construction Workers get pay weekly and they spend money.
Most Grenadians here have finished building since after Ivan, so we have to look at Grendians in the developed world, the Retirees and I am sure there are more Retired Grenadians outside of Grenada than those living here, and many of them want to return home to spend their retirement days.
The overwhelming reason why retiree do not want to come back home is the PRIMITIVE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM that we have and that deters other Nationals from living here.
GRENADA IS NICE, REAL NICE, but nothing is nice when you can’t get adequate Healthcare
Please prepare your administration to take charge of this Country. Have you ever thought of engaging those INSURANCE COMPANIES in the USA, the United Kingdom and Canada as to creating a system where Healthcare Providers in Grenada can get paid from these Insurance.
Think about the amount of pension monies that will be coming here every month. Think about the amount of construction that will take place when these Returning Nationals decide to build houses.
NO MORE HOTELS PLEASE!! How much of we locals enjoy the beauty of these hotels. Not much
WE NEED A HOSPITAL, A MODERN ONE. IT COULD BE AS BIG AS A COMMUNITY HOSPITAL IN THE STATES WITH EVERY DEPARTMENT.
Why are we so modernised in almost every area as those developed countries but our Healthcare, the area that should help us live longer, to help enjoy what we work hard for is in such terrible state?
We have an International Airport, we have an extremely large Cruise Port, we have a Cricket stadium which was built for Cricket World Cup, we have drag racing in Pearl’s every year and we have a Grenadian University with thousands of students at any one time (how much can the largest Airline holds to fly these students out or how soon can the Aircraft get here?)
Now we are building an Athletic stadium. HAVING ALL THESE MODERN FACILITIES THAT HAVE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE WITH PENDING DISASTER TOGETHER WITHOUT A MODERN HOSPITAL IS LIKE WELL WORKING FIRE ENGINE WITHOUT ANY WATER.
Think about making your mark. Be a trailblazer. Sir Eric brought SGU, the Zoo, and the Round-a-bout. Maurice brought NIS, MNIB and Industries to utilise all our fruits.
Dr Keith brought the Stadium, mash up the Botanical Gardens and put a wall structure and put the Hospital way behind GOD’s back where no Fire engine could go, Refurbished the old Hospital and then break it down and rush and put up a Multi-million dollar steel Structure (You see what I am saying).
PLEEEEAAAASE WHEN YOU GET THERE, WE NEED A REAL HOSPITAL.
