CHRISTMAS MESSAGE 2015 A Merry Christmas to all: both residents and visitors of these magnificent Virgin Islands, particularly my constituents of the Third Electoral District. I am Julian Fraser, Representative for the Third District, and Leader of The Opposition. On November 16th I attended a prayer of thanksgiving service by the BVI Christian Council marking the end of our last hurricane season, to which thanks was given to God for sparing the territory yet another season from a single hurricane hit. Our territory has been fortunate in that regard, and such a service was very much in order. However, as we view the world today, we must acknowledge that the Virgin Islands are no different from Paris, Mali, or San Bernardino where residents and visitors alike has within the past weeks fallen victims to the hands of terrorists.
