As published on the Radio Jamaica website there are plans afloat, put forward by current Prime Minister Tillman Thomas, to rename the Point Salines International Airport after the former, slain Prime Minister Maurice Bishop.
Prime Minister Thomas was jailed for two years under the Bishop administration and the decision has received high praise from the former head of the Maurice Bishop Patriotic Movement, Dr. Terrence Marryshaw. But newspaper editor Leslie Pierre fiercely opposes it, saying it is unnecessary as there is already a Maurice Bishop highway.
What are you thoughts? Any Grenadians out there with strong views on this one?
