Today on MORNING BLEND:
Continued strong reaction to the VAT Coordinator’s admission that he hasn’t paid his property taxes; some in the FNM have said he needs to resign or be fired.
Also, PLP MP Greg Moss says the PLP will lose the next election if the government implements VAT.
And, Financial Services Minister Ryan Pinder says by regulating Bahamian-owned gaming houses, the govt. might be able to introduce VAT at a rate lower than 15 percent.
And Jay Mills, Andrea Archer and Minalee Hanchell discuss Empty Bowls Bahamas. Under the theme “Fighting Hunger Together”, the 6th Annual fundraiser is set for Sunday, February. 23.
As Executive Director of Great Commission Ministries, Hanchell tells us that many Bahamians are still going hungry everyday. She also discusses the challenges her organization is facing following dwindling financial donations since the recession.
Archer and Mills tell us Bahamians can help raise funds to fight hunger with their participation on Sunday. With the $15 purchase of a locally handmade ceramic bowl, you can choose from a variety of chef-prepared soups. The event takes place 1-5 PM at the Queen’s College Auditorium on Village Road.
