Barbados Light & Power sidesteps Wind Farm question from Bajan Reporter
Where to start? It seems that Energy Minister Senator D’Arcy Boyce, Commerce Minister Senator Haynesley Benn and Environment Minister Denis Lowe had better things to do than to attend a key gathering of Energy officials looking at assessments and costs for energy. That didn’t bother St Lucia’s Minister of Energy, Science & Technology though, who flew to Barbados for the conference.
Then Ian Bourne of Bajan Reporter started asking those difficult questions that polite (read ‘timid’) journalists don’t ask.
Ian posted a video of Peter Williams of Barbados Light & Power doing the old side-step to avoid the issue of Wind Farm noise and health concerns.

Ian Bourne: Feared journalist… or just a pain in the butt?
In his article about the conference and in his cartoon (above) Ian Bourne questions whether politicians are avoiding press conferences if they know he’s going to be there. That sounds farfetched until you consider some of the questions he’s asked in the past and lately the efforts of Health Minister Donville Inniss to blame Bourne for some of BFP’s stories about the Inniss pornography industry connections.
What do you think folks? Are politicians avoiding press conferences when they know Ian Bourne will be asking questions?
