“The right thing has been done and the Premier needs to do what he has to do as far as his Cabinet is concerned,” OBA Leader Craig Cannonier said following the resignation of two Cabinet Ministers.
Wayne Caines and Zane DeSilva both resigned from the Cabinet after videos circulated showing them at a party not adhering to the Covid-19 regulations, and both the former Ministers have apologized for not wearing their masks during part of the event.
“We have a situation where Ministers were not doing as they preach,” Mr Cannonier said. “If anyone else had broken rules, there were heavy penalties for breaking these rules, there were fines if you were caught off the curfew.”
“Accountability is accountability, and that’s why I called for the resignations,” the OBA Leader said, referencing his statement made earlier this week prior to the resignations.
“For those who are going to try and say, well what about this and what about that in the past, the past has nothing to do with right now. We have the facts in front of us, we have the videos in front of us, and we have a license that was applied for in the name, using the charity Meals on Wheels,” he said.
Mr Cannonier also spoke about local economy, saying that “we need to come together and solve the issues of this Island economically.
