I recently heard the Minister of National Security Gary Griffith saying on a morning programme that we should report all drug dealings to the Police Service. Sir, on my last visit to T&T exactly one year ago, I called 800-TIPS about a drug pusher in Marshall Trace, Cunupia. The lady who took my call told me there were 11 other such reports of the...

When a political leader of a party resigns, it is a clear indicator that something somewhere is wrong. Recently, we saw Lyndira Oudit resign as political leader of the ILP but her reason was something that resonated in my mind for some time after I read the article in the newspaper.

The petroleum industry, which is T&T’s largest and most important industry, is governed principally by the Petroleum Act and Regulations. The act establishes a regulatory framework for the grant of exploration and production licences and production sharing contracts for the conduct of upstrea

What is defamatory and what isn’t? I’m very perplexed by this question. For the past two years I have been an avid media follower, be it CNC3 news, the Daily Express, the Newsday or the Guardian newspaper. It seems as though there is controversy brewing with what can and cannot be published.

The world is currently in the throes of a vicious oil price war.

Let me start by making a few assumptions. Let’s assume, that the Government is serious about curbing crime, and has no intention of “easing up” any of their partners, contributors, etc;

Legal Affairs Minister Prakash Ramadhar is reported to have said, “There were efforts to mediate by Minister Rambachan and it was rejected by civil society,” as a basis of his doubts that mediation is possible in the current highway impasse.

“At the national level, our country is distinguished for its patchwork of medical care subsystems that can require patients to bounce around in a complex maze of providers as they seek effective and affordable care.

I could not go another day without commenting on Lyndira Oudit’s resignation as political leader of the Independent Liberal Party. I read in the newspaper that she said she always felt overshadowed by Jack Warner, which is understandable.

Having worked with Choko for the last five years of his journalistic career, I felt obliged to make a few comments on what I read coming out of the Choko lecture last week, since I was unavailable to attend.

On an overseas trip recently to the US and another country, I noticed travellers over 75 years were exempt from removing their shoes by security inspectors; and there have been prominent airport notices re the 75-year waiver for about six months.

Minister Fuad Khan, instead of dismissing the concerns of citizens over the ambulance service, needs to understand the realities they face everyday. People are put at serious risk from lack of this service and, we as tax-paying citizens, are concerned as it affects us all.

At the time of writing, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), has not yet indicated the composition of or terms of reference for the promised task force (TF) to investigate the issues surrounding the recent abandonment of the Indian tour. In anticipation of an early announcement, please allow me

I have been reading the various articles and commentaries in the press about the recent final and formal demise of West Indian cricket. I am flabbergasted at the stance taken by many who say they have the future of WI cricket at heart. All seem to be missing the big picture.

A recent letter to the editor alerted me that other people were seeing the same thing as I. That is the Queen’s Park Savannah was slowly but surely becoming a shanty town. Along the park benches vagrants and dogs have taken up residence.

I heard quite recently the Opposition Leader complaining about the volume of Government advertisements being aired through the various media. I, for one, believe this is not a genuine complaint. I live in Port-of-Spain. I normally conduct most of my business in and around the City.
