Shadow Tourism Minister Jamahl Simmons says the Bermuda Progressive Labour Party supports the America's Cup and encourages all residents of the Island to work collaboratively to make the event a success.

This coming from Simmons via a press statement released earlier today: "The OBA Government has committed in excess of $100 million of taxpayer funds to support the America's Cup.  Given the scale of this public expenditure, all stakeholders in Bermuda must work together to ensure that the event produces the best return possible for all Bermudians

"While we share the concerns of many Bermudians, that the benefits of the event may not be as inclusive, far reaching and diverse as they could and should be, the PLP will continue to assist in ensuring the America's Cup is a success, for the benefit of all Bermudians, as Bermuda cannot afford anything less."
