“An important step in Bermuda’s tourism recovery,” said Minister of Tourism Vance Campbell today [May 6] after the House of Assembly passed the Fairmont Southampton Hotel Act 2022.

Minister Campbell said, “It is a clear signal to the people of Bermuda, tourism stakeholders and investors that the Government is determined to break the cycle of this challenging tourism period. The House passed this Bill without objection, and I am grateful for that support.

“We are a step closer to the jobs this project will create and to the economic activity and growth that it will mean for this economy. This is the hope we promised, and we are determined to deliver for the people of Bermuda.”

    I think it is more a case that the House has a Government majority and so any ‘debate’ will be unbalanced.

    Get this show on the road. Indeed it is a show, and MP Famous described the ex FM as a monkey. The new Min of Tourism says anyone against the deal is criminal. Nothing like disrespecting people who look like you but who wants to question facts and details such as what this will cost. The PLP continue to say how bad the airport deal was, yet that was made public, and was vetted by numerous outside entities. The SP deal is top secret and still being negotiated, and no one, even in the PLP, knows the financial terms, just it’s a good deal. It’s as bad a deal for Bermuda as it could be, but clearly many will benefit and will be long gone before the consequences become known.
