The PLP said they sent a letter to the OBA two days ago trying to facilitate a televised debate between Premier Paula Cox and OBA leader Craig Cannonier, and the OBA has “not even done us the courtesy of acknowledging receipt.”
Minister Walter Roban said, “On day one of the 2012 election, Mr. Cannonier asked for us to quote ‘Bring it on.’ In typical OBA fashion, one day they say ‘Bring it on,’ the next day they seem to be saying, ‘it’s not on!’
Minister Roban continued, “Premier Paula Cox has consistently expressed her enthusiasm to compare the Progressive Labour Party’s investment in our people and our 10 Point Plan for Growth with the ever changing positions of the OBA.
“We submitted our letter to the OBA on November 28, 2012 and so far they have not even done us the courtesy of acknowledging receipt. We hope that the OBA have not lost their enthusiasm for a debate and look forward to the opportunity to debate them on the issues.”
