Cannonier On Report Into Dec 2, 2016 Protests

July 10, 2019

“The chair of the December 2 committee, Kim Swan, should have called the Premier to give evidence,” Opposition Leader Craig Cannonier said.

Mr Cannonier said, “As the then Leader of the Opposition, the Premier was present during the demonstration. It was also reported that Mr Burt sent an email encouraging people to demonstrate outside the House.

“Why didn’t Mr Swan call him? Why indeed didn’t the Premier volunteer to attend? He had a front seat on the day.

“He was willing to take a lead in this demonstration, why didn’t he take the lead and take part in this investigation and volunteer information?

“As well as examining what happened on the day, the committee should have examined what happened in the lead-up to the day, as a result it lacks context and does not fully investigate this incident.

“Although lacking information from key players, the committee’s recommendations do help provide the basis for policy to ensure this very regrettable incident never happens again.”

    Jetgate Craig you had a front row seat in JETGATE. You even told the public in the media that you would COME CORRECT and tell Bermuda what happened. Now don’t act like you didn’t say this .

    So until than please be quiet!!! The OBA sacked you as Premier and because of desperation with losing at the election 25 PLP to 11 obaUBP brought you back to help them lose again.

    • Question oba? says:

    • sandgrownan says:

  3. Onion Juice says:

    • Toadinthehole says:

      When is the plp going to explain port royal, the $1.2m payment to ewart, the broken promise of releasing the hospital ppp contract etc etc
      I could go on but the list is too long
      Be careful of throwing stones in glass houses

    • sandgrownan says:

      Presumably he’s waiting for DREB to come clean on JetGate Mk1 and GlobalHUe where taxpayers dollars were actually involved.

      But keep deflecting.

  4. toadinthehole says:

    why on earth did Kim Swan not insist on calling Burt et al? Sorry, but that blows a massive gaping hole in the authenticity of this sham of a report

  5. trump supporter says:

    Because its like everything else all hot er.

  6. oh please says:

    When are you going to explain JETGATE. you keep ducking and dodging that. not deflecting but im tired of this man coming up here pointing fingers and acting like his hands are not dirty. shameless surrogate….

    • Question says:

      Because it was a non-event that made no difference to anyone.

    • sandgrownan says:

      Presumably he’s waiting for DREB to come clean on JetGate Mk1 and GlobalHUe where taxpayers dollars were actually involved. Let’s hear about that shall we?

  7. Kevin says:

    This report isn’t worth the paper it was submitted on …what a waste of taxpayers funds but it highlights the lack of ability that KSwan has when you don’t know what you are doing that’s what you get …be honest he only produced a document that made his boss happy ….so keeping his spot on the team…the commissioner of police facts sure made the report look like a piece of swiss cheese and it only made what most of us already knew it was going to twisted in one direction …but again when you don’t know better you get what you get ……the plp are not capable of governing they only know how to divide and that they are good at

    • Amazing says:

      There are planes leaving every hour so get on one troll! It leaves more of this wonderful country for those of us who want to stay! And prices for homes are coming down and now many of us can finally afford a home! Thanks PLP!

  8. Peso Pete says:

    the great chairman Mr Swan of the PLP did what his instructors expected of him. Don’t be PARTIAL and DONT request the PLP members to speak ( they won’t tell the truth anyway ) Make it a OBA w*(&%$ problem and discredit the police, not us. Be sure not to get all the info and don’t worry about the actions of a majority in attendance
