“I certainly believe out of a billion dollar budget that the monies can be found to rebuild. These, I think, from what I can see and I am no engineer, that the buildings have been condemned and we are appealing to the Government that if we can, during this difficult time, to forget about partisan politics and think about these people living in this area. These are poor people. These are Belizeans and in their own small way do pay taxes to the Government. And we are appealing to them to come in and rebuild and improve the standards of living for the people in this area. And we are appealing to everybody.”
