For quite sometime, it has seemed that the people’s CHANGE AGENDA has been derailed. Unfolding events have shown that the Prime Minister’s change agenda is being derailed right in the bowels of his administration.
The Budget Speech of 2011 and later the draft Growth and Poverty Reduction Strategy, causes one to ask whether Grenada’s agenda for economic development was being shaped by Poole Capital’s Bru Pearce and his Sustainable Nation Foundation.
Remember Bru Pearce of Poole Capital fame? The people’s property (Islander Hill and Ballast Ground) passed to Port Louis for EC$1.00, facilitated by a Deed of Release of October 5th, 2006, between Poole Capital and the Government of Grenada – a deed which is not recorded in the Deeds and Lands Registry of Grenada.
Bru Pearce was also the first manager of Camper and Nicholson Grenada which bought Port Louis.
In 2008, Mr. Bru Pearce made available the draft proposal of his Sustainable Nation Foundation plan for Grenada. Note who are Mr. Bru Pearce’s associates – (former) ambassadors and people high up in the Grenada Hotel and Tourism Association and the Grenada Chamber of Industry and Commerce. These are the persons to whom the Ministry and its advisers are listening.
Read Sustainable Nation Foundation proposals and compare them with the pillars of economic transformation identified by the Budget Speech 2011 and the draft Growth and Poverty Reduction Strategy that is yet to be completed.
Is this purely co-incidence or are Mr. Pearce’s associates in the GCIC and the GHTA shaping the agenda?
By accident Mr. Bru Pearce’s plan for the Grenada for the next 15 years was discovered. Please view PPT presentation which was apparently presented/prepared in 2007. One would note as events have been unfolding in the “fullness of time”, it appears that Mr. Pearce’s vision is coming to fruition. FOR WHOSE BENEFIT??????
