By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - According to a lawyer who is working with the company proposing to build the Harbor of the Americas on Isla Colon in Bocas del Toro, they were forced to cancel the public meeting scheduled for Monday because two of the primary engineers involved in the planning who were supposed to be in attendance could not obtain transportation from Changuinola to Isla Colon. I don't know the specifics, but apparently whatever they had set up fell through and they were basically stranded. Since these two guys were the primary technical people behind the plan, their presence was critical and necessary, and since they could not be there the company made the decision to cancel the hearing and to reschedule for a future date. No word yet as to when that next public hearing will be held. Most importantly, the meeting was not called off simply because La Prensa starting writing about the project, contrary to what they might have you believe.
