Those are entities owned by private owners and they generate revenues and employment.  And in fact it is now widely agreed that tax subsidies given to sports stadiums in the USA are wasteful corruption, and the remains is that Guyana is much poorer so can ill afford such waste.  At least the tourist islands can recoup some of the costs to run these entities from the tourism generated, but Guyana cannot do so.

QC, its leading school has many resource limitations. Most assuredly the best secondary schools in NYC are in excellent shape.  We have QC kids who spend as much time doing extra lessons as they spend in school, because conditions are sub par.  But yet you applaud the construction of a white elephant which is used for its main purpose no more than 4 weeks a year.

You have yet to tell us how much employment and foreign exchange the white elephant generates.  

In fact Banks DIH could have built it and operated it as in fact its main use is as a replacement of Thirst Park.

Here you scream at Granger's white elephant when Providence is even more wasteful.  That Durban lands monstrosity wasn't built using foreign loans and in fact much of its financing came from the local private sector. So the fact that it is a waste has less impact.
