YOU MUST DO A BETTER JOB OF EDITING & PROOF-READING BEFORE RELEASING THESE ARTICLES!!
what stores are open from 7am to 5am???

I notice they wash house dnt be open for essential workers when you then work all week u have to come tote line to wash or dnt wash at all that’s not fair

,What good for the geese is good for the gander.Are the Abaconians different from the other Bahamians? Certainly they are not. So Mr. PM was wrong when he gave them permission to open their businesses and the other people on the other islands had to remain close.
Abaco has reported ten cases of covid 19 .Many other islands has no cases and they were not given a chance to open.
Something must be wrong.
Fix it!

To be fair, the gander should be have their houses and cars flooded and destroyed, they then may enjoy foodstore for 5 days of the week.

There are people in Abaco and Freeport without electricity for 11 months and they need to buy ice and food to cook everyday. Plus Maxwells foodstore building operates the only bank, pharmacy so all these people have to gather up there and transmit covid because there is no social distance.

There was a mess if people on Friday trying to buy cooking gas because of the lockdown. (Yep, there is no delivery in many eareas so you have to tote your gas tank and drive long distance to get there).

Others are still living in tents and have to buy take out food everyday.

How ignorant can people be?

How stupid this comment.
The gander should have their houses and cars flooded and destroyed so they can go to the food store everyday to buy ice.
Fair is fair. Fix it!!!!
