FECTAB Wants Cruise Port on Stake Bank

Tom Greenwood

But while it claims to speak for the majority of its members and in the interest of the industry, Greenwood’s FECTAB does have something at stake with the Stake Bank project: today he revealed that his organization has an iron-clad contract to conduct tour operations when the project gets going.

“FECTAB has obtained a solid lock-hard contract which I ran by several legal agencies—not least of which I ran by the Prime Minister himself—because when we lobbying to get the whole thing off the ground and going, the prime minister said to me personally—I remember his words—Tom, I don’t want you all to end up in the same mess that you’re in at FSTV. How can you guarantee that you people will have access? We got a contract from the Stake Bank project that the federation members and we keep telling everyone that it doesn’t cost a penny to become a member of FECTAB. Just your name, your address, telephone number and that is immediate approval and we will all have a place in the sun.”


FECTAB also announced that it is teaming up with Citizens Organized for Liberty through Action (COLA) to organize a protest near the Tourism Village on Wednesday morning starting at eight a.m.  In addition to calling out the Government for being scared of the Fort Street problem, COLA president Geovannie Brackett today took the podium briefly and had some not-so-kind words for Fort Street’s owners, who he accuses of being elitist towards locals.
