Thanks to Jesse for posting the PM's speach on the San Pedro Daily site. There was a lot said but I think the following may be the most improtant of all - as far as change goes.

Well in this Freedom of Information Amendment Act, we are putting in a clause two which adds a new section 21a to the Act, prohibiting secrecy provisions in public contracts and other documents. It further provides that every secrecy provision in a public contract which prohibits or restricts its disclosure to the public shall be wholly void and of no effect. The days of doing things in the dark behind the backs of the Belizean people and in order to screw the Belizean people are over.

52 people, so far, have read your post and not one comment about it either Positive, Negative or "I'm afraid to say anything". Personally I think it is great.
