The response to the termination of the Central Bank Governor is flowing, as is to be expected, right down party and tribal lines, but I for one stand and applaud the Prime Minister for the action that he has taken.

I had been hoping that a more mature and sensible approach would be used by Government in relations with the Central bank Governor, but alas governments continue to attack the messenger rather than face facts, just as in 1997 when someone reported that there were errors in the primary school...

This is for all of the commercial banks in Trinidad (can’t speak for Tobago). Can you honestly tell us why there are so many ABMs across the country that are not dispensing cash reliably for whatever reason(s)?

Interesting scenes are being played out at agencies which are under the portfolio of Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Ms Marlene McDonald.

It is time for T&T to put away the fundamental bias that has been attributed towards cannabis (ganja, marijuana, herbs, high grade—whatever you want to call it) for decades and see how it can benefit the Government and its people through legalised, taxed and well-regulated medical cannabis (...

I am spurred to respond to the recent developments in the food vending issue around the Savannah, the latest being the complete cessation of the activity. I am of the opinion that more options could have been visited, such as more dialogue and practical solutions, and less highhandedness.

After working in the public service for over 30 years it’s a shame and disgrace that upon retirement as public officers people have to wait from eight months to a year, sometimes more, to receive their gratuity and pension. It’s real torture for retirees.

Government ought to never encounter difficulties in meeting its financial obligations so long as it precisely appreciates the reason for its existence.

The taste of the grapes on her lips must be sour indeed. Ms Jearlean John would have us today believe that the public will think any kinder of her if she can point to mismanagement in the HDC occurring before the People’s Partnership administration. If you knew then why tell us now?

Last Sunday I was fortunate to be around for an informative television interview with noted child’s rights advocate and attorney Hazel Thompson-Ahye. She spoke convincingly in her capacity as a senior tutor with the acclaimed International Institute for Restorative Practices.
