The Cahill Energy-Clare Cowan revelations have established that our government has no reservation doing business with the riff and the raff of this world. There is no need to rehash the embarrassing Cahill episode suffice to post the link to agreements clandestinely initialled by four ministers of the Crown (Chris Sinckler, Denis Kellman, Darcy Boyce and Denis Lowe).
BU posted in October 2015 the following – Cahill Energy + Deltro Electric Inc = Poor Governance and there was little or response from the traditional media until now. The local media is a passive lot and there is hardly an appetite to uncover real news. The minister of finance Chris Sinckler has even had the gumption to deny knowledge of the coming of the Del Mastros and Deltro Electric. When will Barbadians (and traditional media) hold minister Sinckler accountable for his lack of respect for the office he holds?
By the way, what is the renewable energy plan for Barbados? There is the proposed Cahill Waste-to-Energy plant, Del Matros Solar Farm, EMERA’s Solar Farm…did we miss anyone? Is there an opportunity for local entrepreneurs to to cash in on the renewable energy bonanza?
There is no need to be prolix on this issue to convey the obvious point. The coming of the Del Mastros is another national embarrassment. There is a standard in the private sector the requirement to evaluate vendors based on various measures including reputational capital and strength of brand. Clearly government’s readiness to welcome Clare Cowan (Cahill Energy) and the Del Mastros (Del Electrics) of this world brings into question, judgement.
BU family member Vincent posted the following:
It is a dun deal……Del Mastro has bought the old Banks beer site and presently has 14 containers at the harbour awaiting clearance.
