March 25, 2016

Earlier this week, Premier Michael Dunkley, Mrs. Pamela Dunkley, Minister of Health, Seniors and the Environment Jeanne Atherden and area MP Kenneth Bascome visited St. George’s in advance of the upcoming Good Friday and Easter weekend.

While in the East End, Premier Dunkley stopped in at the Sylvia Richardson Care Facility to extend well wishes to its residents. He also visited Sweet SAAK Bakery to see how their Good Friday preparations were progressing.

The Premier said that “recent weeks have been challenging ones for the Country” and, as part of his broader Easter message he echoed the sentiments of reflection and healing that have been called for in various sectors of the community.

“As a Country, we are emerging from what can be considered one of the most difficult times in recent memory,” the Premier said.

“As we reflect on the meaning of this Holy weekend, I consider this an opportunity for our entire community, Government included, to reflect on recent events. It serves as an opportunity to embrace lessons learned and find ways to heal our divisions so that we can progress together as a people and as a country.”

Engaging with the community and having “frank, honest and collaborative dialogue is an important step towards unifying our community,” the Premier said, and added that his Government was “committed to enhancing and increasing community engagement regarding complex policy matters and important issues facing the Country.”

He concluded: “The unique traditions that we celebrate over this holiday period are foundations which bind us together. I encourage everyone to remember that. It’s these bonds of shared traditions and experiences that I believe can help bring us together.

“We enjoyed speaking with a wide range of residents on topics important to them and the community. It was good fellowship and I look forward to doing more of it in the weeks and months to come,” added the Premier.

“In the meantime, I want to encourage all of Bermuda to enjoy their Good Friday and Easter activities, and I wish everyone a safe and happy weekend.”

During the East End visit, the Premier was joined by his wife, Mrs. Pamela Dunkley, the Minister of Health, Seniors and the Environment Jeanne Atherden and area MP Kenneth Bascome.

        • Onion Juice says:

          These seniors built this country, were contributing to this society and fighting for equality against the political ideology(by the way which he happens to be the leader off)before he was born, and now they’re making the same policies that these seniors fought against.
          Same S!@# different day.

    • Zevon says:

    • Raymond Ray says:

      I “tip my hat” to Premier Michael Dunkley and all the other members of Bermudas Government,the One Bermuda Alliance.
      We all know it’s difficult right-siding a ship…Remember, “one isn’t a failure when they try and fail they become a failure when they fail to try.” So Mr. Premier “dust off yourself and pickup the pieces and move forward” the One Bermuda Alliance are a great team!

      • drunken ursula says:

        again you looking through your rose colour glasses blinded as usual.

  2. Ed Case says:

    • Bermudian voter 2017 says:

      We all knew what ewart was, on the other hand we didn’t know dunkleyyyyy was just as sneaky. The last few weeks revealed his true face with the people of Bermuda.
