Situated at the corner of James and Granby Streets, uptown Kingstown, this building is expected to be a hive of activity for the next seven weeks, as the campaign goes into high gear.

Director of Operations of the campaign Julian Francis indicated that the building, formerly the Ju-c bottling plant, will house the database operations for the campaign, to give assistance and information on what is expected of voters on referendum day.

From this location, the 300 canvassers, whose duty it is to educate and persuade persons on the campaign’s cause, will be given directives.

The canvassers, of various ages, will be conducting a door-to-door campaign, which Francis said is expected to reach every household in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The campaign’s website was also launched on Monday. The site: is expected to guide individuals on the campaign’s objectives, through education on the old and proposed constitution.

Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, who gave the feature address at the launch of the operations centre, cut the ribbon to officially declare the building open.

The centre officially began operations on Tuesday morning.(JJ)
