Today on MORNING BLEND:
Ahead of the holiday weekend, we discuss road safety issues, including: drinking and driving, speeding, confusion with new roads and road changes, round-a-bouts, motorcycles and helmet use, and cell phone texting/talking while driving. Guests: Joy John, Ministry of Works & Urban Development, Karen Mortimer, Road Traffic Dept., and Insp. Harry Williams, Royal Bahamas Police Force.
And on the eve of first ever Majority Rule Day Holiday, we talk with Athama Bowe about the significance of the day, why January 10 needed to be commemorated with a holiday, and how ALL Bahamians should be observing this special day.
“In The News”, reaction to Chief Justice Sir Michael Barnett’s warning that judges and magistrates will not be dictated to by the executive branch of the govt., and that they will resist any attempt to curtail their upholding of the rights guaranteed by the constitution.
Plus, we try to understand the “serious consideration” being given to a constitutional amendment to capital punishment, as per Attorney General Allyson Maynard-Gibson.
And we get views on Marco City MP Gregory Moss’ bold statements in the House.
