Our CONSTITUTIONAL 101 series examines discrimination allowed by our constitution. Attorney Peter Maynard discusses the provisions that specifically prevent Bahamians from being allowed to gamble in casinos or conduct lotteries. We also look at provisions allowing the government to seize properties in the interest of “defence, public safety, public order, public morality, public health, town and country planning”, among others. These are all covered under Chapter III of the constitution: Protection of Fundamental Rights & Freedoms.
“Festival of the Bahama Islands” is set for Saturday, June 29, at Botanical Gardens beginning at 10am. Guests Angelique McKay, Ministry of Youth, Sports & Culture, Anne Marie Romer, Commonwealth Brewer, and Antonio Saunders and Trulon Stuart with the Commandoes Junkanoo Group, tell us about the musical performances, demonstrations and food that will be available.
Plus “In The News”, we get reaction to BEC Chairman Leslie Miller’s threat to cut power to hotels owing millions to the corporation. We also discuss former Anglican Archbishop Drexel Gomez’s concerns on the impact of court action against the Anglican Central Education Authority by parents suing about the cancelled graduation ceremony and prom for the St. John’s Class of 2013.
