A parcel of land in Carmelita Village measuring just over an acre, which was designated as a green space, has been acquired by the Minister of Health Kevin Bernard. The subdivided property, which is located in Bernard’s constituency, was set aside for the community to utilize as a green space but was recently transferred into Bernard’s name. Today, the Orange Walk East Area Representative weighed in on the situation and this was his explanation.
Hon. Kevin Bernard, Minister of Health and Wellness: “I would not respond to this comment. I will not drag myself down into the UDP political mischief. I will just leave it to see what will happen whenever the time comes – “
Reporter: Are you planning a residential area ?
Hon. Kevin Bernard, Minister of Health and Wellness: “I am not and as I said I will not respond on the matter. Let us wait and see what will develop in the Carmelita area then we can talk.”
