Anti-airport group call meeting

A concerned citizens group known as MOVE (mobilise, organise, visualise, execute), aligned with the People's Campaign, will voice their opposition of the planned redevelopment of the L.F. Wade International Airport by Canadian company Aecon/CCC at a meeting at BIU headquarters this evening.

Starting at 6.00pm, the meeting will see People's Campaign representatives present a special report concerning the airport project.

Titled “A Bad Deal for Bermuda”, the report aims to raise awareness about the redevelopment.

According to a MOVE statement released this morning, discussion will centre on a number of topics including:

• Aecon's “road to riches”;

• Conflicting statements from the Minister of Finance;

• Cost implications for Bermuda;

• Lack of transparency;

• Notable deficiencies;

• And other facts pertaining to the project.

Hard copies of the special report are available at the BIU.
