"I want to let you know that I intend to build a mini stadium here and at this moment there is over eight hundred thousand dollars with the Village Council towards this project" Bousquet.

A couple of questions here:
What is the money doing with the Village Council? Why not with the Ministry of Youth & Sports which has the mandate for youth & Sports Development? What is the source of the money? What will be the procurement mechanism? How come the Village Council members know nothing about the $850,000?

You see Bousquet continues to misrepresent and deceive the constituency with his backdoor politics?

In this period of national emergency, should an obscured mini stadium be a priority for Choiseul? Could that money be redirected to help hurricane victims or at least go towards the expansion of water services for the constituency? What is Bousquet's blueprint for the development of the constituency in the aftermath of Tomas?
