"These are the wrong hotels, for the wrong market, at the wrong time, in the wrong island. Apart from destroying the environment, bad design, and wrong locations; what else do these mega-projects all have in common? Their financing. None of them are backed by the traditional deep-pocketed “foreign investor”: a single entity or consortium that put their money where their mouth is, and invests millions to make their dreams a reality. All these projects are predicated on the sale of one thing: Grenadian passports."

That was when thief - I mean developer - number 3 was ripping us off. He did the same in USA but Uncle Sam ain't a patsy like Keet, and he ass ended up in jail for fraud.

Look what they're doing to the National Park, sickening. And the tragedy is: NOTHING WILL HAPPEN. Just like all the other failed mega-projects, all it'll leave in its wake is scarred earth.

Well Slice they need boulders and someone from Planning forget to tell these Chinese construction company that you cyah thief them from the Quarry ... purchase like everyone else ...

According to the project manager at the Quarry, Jason Joseph, he was alerted around 10. 00 a.m. by workers that a truck belonging to the Chinese had come onto the compound and was removing boulders that they had stockpiled for crushing at the plant.

THE NEW TODAY was told that the Chinese took away about 8 tonnes of boulders valued at around $700.00 before they were confronted by the locals.

A tractor belonging to CCCCI was seen using boulders and other debris to put across a new access road that the Chinese had built in recent weeks to gain access to the Mt. Hartman Quarry.

Joseph said that this is not the first encounter that the locals had with the Chinese who have struck a deal with the Keith Mitchell-led government to develop a luxury resort in the area.

He spoke of the locals taking steps to block a new road that the Chinese cut with heavy-duty equipment in an effort to try and link the two sites to gain access to the boulders.

In addition, he said that unknown to the local operators of the quarry, the Chinese were apparently working at night to cut a second road to gain access at another access point to the quarry. Joseph stated that the CCCCI Group has a lease for the premises and is lawfully in possession of the island’s lone stone quarry that belongs to government.

He said the quarry workers are upset over this development as they feel that the Chinese are looking to take over the quarry and put them out of employment.
