    As far as I understand, annual public and bank holidays have to be approved by the Cabinet so it will porbably take a while for that to be finalized.  Thanks for the info!

    The Cabinet of Beize is too busy making laws to change the constitution oof Belize to make this country a dictatorship, and after that there will be a riot.  Then if they don't a holiday in honor of The Father of our Nation,  there will be another riot... if this is the only way these politicos understand, then let them have it.

    In our hearts September 26th will be remembered as the Father Of the Nation Day...... It's just a matter of time before it happens!!!!!...... 2011 & 2012 is all political...... it's all about judging political parties now!.... A Hero is gone and will and could never be forgotten....... he is due his respect and honor!.... and...looking forward to that day when it's made official.......God Bless Rt. Hon. George C. Price!
