Talk On The Street: Referendum Postponed

With the recent news that the referendum on the cruise port on December 19th has been postponed due to a judicial review, the obvious question comes to mind. Our reporter wanted to check the public’s pulse on this to see what their answer would be. The specific question posed was, “Will this postponement affect or change what the result of the referendum would have been on December 19th?” Below are the responses of 15 individuals.

 

Jose, Caymanian, 51:

“I think that it will make less people come out to the polls.”

 

Albert, Caymanian, 51:

“If it was held in December, I think that the port would have been stopped but I think the delay will cause more people to stay home and not vote.”

 

Debbie, Caymanian, 39:

“If it doesn’t stretch out more than about March or April, I think that it won’t affect anything.”

 

Kevin, Caymanian, 51:

“No, I don’t think it will affect anything. But, if there is a new environmental impact study, I think more people will vote against the port.”

 

William, Caymanian, 23:

“I think it will make more people vote against the port because they will get a chance to look at the environmental side of things a little more.”

 

Lisa, Caymanian, 56:

“I hope it causes more people to see the seriousness of this issue and how it can affect our environment.”

 

Jeana, Caymanian, 53:

“There is going to be a major shakeup of things here. The judge will order a new Environment Study done and it will show that there are real concerns about the port damaging our environment. Then the port will be stopped by the voters.”

 

Tommy, Caymanian, 61:

“This will not change things. The voters will still vote “Yes” for the port.”

 

George, Caymanian, 44:

“I hope everyone stays home and doesn’t vote now. We need the port.”

 

Tina, Caymanian, 33:

“I hope it doesn’t change anything. Before this happened, I think most people were voting “No.””

 

Barbara, Caymanian, 57:

“I think that it will slow down the momentum that the No side had. Now, it will seem too drawn out and make most people frustrated.”

 

Andrew, Caymanian, 48:

“This will not change a single, solitary thing. The port will still be voted down.”

 

Christina, Caymanian, 23:

“I am not sure. I just hope that we can still stop this port.”

 

Leroy, Caymanian, 49:

“Not really sure. I will not change my mind. I will still vote against the port.”

 

Linda, Caymanian, 47:

“I think it will frustrate some people for a while, but then the momentum will get going again and we will stop the port.”
