All worthy thoughts but,
Perhaps the government just wants to get their hands on the National Trusts endowment?
I'm sure some puffed up political hack can liquidate that in short order.
At the very least they as a new ministry can help spend more money on our behalf.

As long ago as 1982 it was depressing to see the tin and bottle dumps along the road near Governors Harbour. And before that the privies over the sea on many out islands. It is time to address these issues.

As a family island resident that lives on the largest island in the country surrounded by 60% of the countries natural resources, i do not have any confidence in any of our government minsties to manage our natural resource. First of all the family island are treated like colonies, its residents do not have a say on how the government ministries carry out its work on the island. How can some one in an office make a decision for MY community in a family island? They do not have a clue about life and conditions in that small community. in the family islands we get the ministry personall that they are have problams with in nassau or their boss do not like them an want them out of the way. Also the imperial mentality of the government ministries when it comes to the family islands are killing our culture and communities.
BNT is no differant from any other government ministry. It has a colonial mentality. The national Parks of the country are not managed, have very little community support or none. Also to think that the exuma land and sea park is a succcess is a joke!! It is a real estate money pit for the few real estate agencies who came up with the Trust idea in the 50s and have cays in the park and sell them to the very rich. so the rich can live and use the park with out any one controlling them but the few Bahamians who have lived in the cay for generations cannot fish or use the park with out being treated like a criminal. The exuma land and sea park is a play ground for the rich and keep bahamians out. The minsitry of the envirnment will be just as useless as the ministry of education with it's 'D' grade, The ministry of health that does not have medication, the ministry of works that does no work, and the public utilites that charge that highest rates in the world and provide the worst service.
WE NEED TO GET RID OF ALL OUR COLONIAL STILE GOVERNMENT AND HAVE SOME ACCOUNTIABILITY AND GET RID OF THE CULTURE OF CORRUPTION.
I DO NOT TURST MY GOVERNMENT!!!!!!!!!!!! IT ALL ABOUT THEM NOT THE BAHAMIAN PEOPLE!!!!!!!
