School is an institute of proselytisation and can be used as a tool for social integration. For parents, however, it also offers the perfect social corollary, as a place to shape children into model citizens of the world: responsible and law-abiding members of society. However we chose to rationalise its efficacy, we go because we are mandated to do so....

I was appalled to hear the announcement by the Minister of Health that Cabinet approved the construction of a diagnostic Center at the Sangre Grande Hospital at the cost of $100 million. It begs the question: how many of the Cabinet Ministers have ever visited this hospital?

Over the years much has been said and written about new politics and governance. The business of governance has evolved into a complex, very expensive and divisive endeavour.

That the attempt by the Government to make law the Constitution (Amendment) Bill has been met with stiff opposition by a large portion of the population and many organisations is an understatement.

The use of paternity testing to aid in the biological identification of a child or an individual can help resolve issues that have a financial, legal and social impact on the citizens of T&T.

There is a portion of our society that the country no longer seems to care about.

I refer to Jennifer de Verteuil’s article in yesterday’s T&T Guardian and agree that more diligence is needed by the Government and the National Trust to protect our historic properties. I am referring now to the sale of the Greyfriars Church of Scotland.

What are the incentives or tax concessions for recycling? The Government must be responsive to the public need, and seems to have forgotten that the Beverage Containers Bill written some 20 years ago, is lying on their shelves collecting cobweb and dust. Has our Attorney General forgotten us?

Given the steady stream of missteps made by the PP government over the past four years, it would have been a miracle of sorts if the Constitution (Amendment) Bills now before Parliament did not contain a series of such missteps.

T&T is certainly a land of misinformation, rumour and gross misrepresentation of the true facts. I saw a letter in the Sunday Guardian of August 17, headlined, Town and Country planning is useless, written by someone with the initials RR, claiming to write on behalf of the Lower Maraval...

I write in response to A Singh’s letter in the Sunday Guardian commenting on the sale of the historic Greyfriars Church of Scotland on Frederick Street. The writer suggests that the property will morph into a new fast food outlet or casino.

On Thursday, August 14, the Prime Minister hosted an event in honour of Emancipation Day.

I wish to express the sad moment I experienced last Friday evening on learning of the passing of Henry James, who I met in 1995 while on my 12-year tour of duty in Tobago. I would usually meet Henry at Bakers Scouting for Talent on a weekly basis, where we both (among others) were judges at the...

Allow me to introduce myself. I am a proud member of the Lower Maraval Residents Association. By way of background, I was relocated to the fine shores of the Republic of T&T a little over six years ago.

I plead guilty to succumbing to the dumb and blind acceptance, like many other Trinbagonians, of poor service, non-provision of basic amenities and the utter contempt shown by those in authority to the citizenry, without a murmur. The reason for this lethargy is an ingrained feeling of impotence...
