Words I Would Prefer Not To Hear

EDITOR, The Tribune

What does URCA actually do? License Cable franchises - cellular systems - Radio and TV licenses - supposed to be now monitoring BP/L, but do we ever see URCA in action?

Take Cable licences…it seems the cable operators can play around with the packages, without any control of logic. As soon as a particular channel in basic becomes popular, Cable put it into a higher cost package. Are these not supposed to get approvals from URCA?

Content of TV and Radio…certainly the use of certain words surely is controlled - not so a word that if used in other place, would be not only frowned on, but the Station is required to ensure it is not used again. The Regulator would fine the licensed party…not Bahamas. So what does URCA do? I am to understand URCA employees are well paid. Fancy job and naught to show? Seems so! URCA, please get that very aggressive unnecessary word off the air every Monday through Friday.

I have complained to URCA about our horrible BTC service on our Family Island for years. Never hear a word from them. URCA is USELESS.

URCA is just another glaring example of Bahama nepotism and shameless waste of taxpayers' hard-earned Bahama dollars.
