THE RIFT BETWEEN GPCA AND GPACT
Dear Mr. Grant:
The New Today's edition of Friday, June 19, 2015, carried an article headlined "Calypso war continues." In that article it spoke of "the rift between the Grenada Progressive Calypso Association (GPCA) and the Grenada Professional Association of Calypsonians and Tents (GPACT) appears to widening."
The fact of the matter is: the GPCA broke up after the 2001 carnival and the Grenada Calypso and Cultural Association (GCCA), and GPACT, were established.
Referring to Jerry "Papa Jerry' Baptiste, the article also stated: "Baptiste who is associated with the GPCA" ..............
Since there is no GPCA, then Baptiste cannot be thus associated, and that aspect of the article is totally erroneous.
