Once again, this Government has proven it is very proactive. Gone are the days when a government would knowingly condone corruption and bad governance in its ranks. One just has to stretch their memory to the Calder Hart situation where Dr Keith Rowley, as his one time line minister, claims he knew nothing about his actions. Mr Hart was given free reign to do as he pleased, with the blessing of the then PNM (People’s National Movement) government.
How times have changed. The Minister of Finance, Senator Larry Howai, has acknowledged that the buck stops with him and has moved to hastily restructure the Caribbean Airlines board, in an effort to improve the level of governance. This is a mature Government, one that is willing to take ownership of its mistakes and take the necessary corrective measures. They must be commended.
