Foreign investors, petroleum companies, have discovered large deposits of petroleum off the coast of Guyana. Guyana with a population of fewer than one million people is poised to become the richest plantation in the region, as we preside over the depletion of these natural resources in Trinidad and Tobago (T&T), a country which now has to import...

“Get up, Get up stand up for your rights.” I echo the words of a song which was made popular by the late Bob Marley. I want to commend Shannon’s mom and all those who through a peaceful march sent a message, crying out for justice.

FATCA means Final Act of foolishness by The Opposition to Convince ALL voters that they are indeed incapable of governing T&T.

Walking out of parliament and insisting on a Joint Select Committee keeps them in the public eye as it allows for photo opportunities, nothing else.

Couched in your appeal urging the police not to let the Shannon Banfield case go cold was some statements unsupported by research. Your editorial asserts “the phenomenon of a killer murdering people he doesn’t know is very rare”.

For the last few years, since I discovered it existed, I’ve been doing my Unit Trust Corporation (UTC) transactions at the Grand Bazaar branch.

Our country is facing its darkest hour, with murders, rapes, poverty, violence and corruption pervading our society. This has been going on for quite a while. There is the cry of many for justice for their loved ones who have been victims of crime.

More than one year ago I wrote a letter to our Minister of Health, Mr Terrence Deyalsingh, via a letter to the editor, pleading with him to immediately address, prioritise and provide an immediate solution to the then serious anomaly that had been existing at the Sangre Grande Hospital.

In 2002 Cemex made a hostile bid to take over the TCL Group offering $7.15 or US$1.17 per share for 100 per cent of TCL.

It seems that, unfortunately, I must reverse the “kudos” which I had happily offered to the Port Authority and The Inter-Island Ferry Transportation Company a few months ago, for having, at last, gotten the Scarborough/Port-of Spain ferry service “right” .

The criminal element continues to wreak havoc and pandemonium in our once considered ‘paradise’ country of T&T. With a low detection rate for murders and unenforced laws, these criminals reign supreme. As citizens, our helplessness has now converted itself into hopelessness.

The Christian Youth Foundation hopes to make a significant impact in the quality of life of our nation by networking with faith-based organisations in order to tackle the serious issues facing the youth in T&T.

The greatest clash in T&T’s colleges football is Naparima against Presentation San Fernando. Make no mistake about it.

Monday Naparima won the war. The battle spilled off the field where the two female physios had it out. It was licks on and off the field.

As I look at the crimes that are taking place in our country I cannot accept that they are only natural and nothing else.
