The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL - -- Toot Too Booshe’

The is­sue is that Kenny An­thony wasted twenty years try­ing to build a legacy in­stead of un­der­stand­ing that a legacy is built off work put in, rather than po­lit­i­cal mes­sag­ing. Tourism could, and can still, be a sus­tain­able ve­hi­cle to de­vel­op­ing. It has ob­vi­ously worked won­ders for Bar­ba­dos, and if we de­sign and con­tinue to work on our in­dus­try, we should be able to en­joy tremen­dous gains from it. Tourism is not just the ho­tels, but the land­marks and ex­pe­ri­ence. There are so many busi­nesses which ben­e­fit from tourism di­rectly that to men­tion them would take too much space. Just think about all those whole­salers and dis­trib­u­tors, large and small who prac­ti­cally sur­vive off these ho­tels. Ge­orge made so much sense, but made so lit­tle sense at the same time. We are where we are. Lets build this coun­try!
