Tour Operator Supports Causeway; Says Controversy is Political

The Stake Bank causeway has been controversial with FECTAB tour operators airing their side last week. While we were speaking to the tour guides out protesting gas prices today, we asked John Pollard of Big John Tours for his view on the causeway. He says he supports the project for income generation and any concerns brought forth have gotten too political.

“We have to be concerned about what the environmentalists are saying, but at the same time, people need to eat.”

“The environmentalists have been saying that the damage will be irreparable. You don’t share that opinion with them?”


John Pollard

“Have we seen causeways in the world? Are there causeways in the world before? Did they condemn or destroy anything as such? We have to do things and put politics aside.”
