Columbus statue in Bahamas…remember the uproar by some in Jamaica..

I just read they are erecting a Columbus statue in Bahamas. I remember a few years ago how some people were upset over the visit by a descendant of Columbus to Jamaica in 2004 and the events for the visit. Their would be a wreath laid at the Columbus statue in St Ann. I remember a letter sent to the Gleaner questioning Jamaica honoring Columbus. There were people calling the radio programs in uproar about the event.  I wonder if there will be a debate in the Bahamas.
