The use of mass media to paint the last 18 years of Bolivarian Revolution as some sort of dictatorship is completely factually unfounded. In fact under the Revolution the Venezuelan people have had 16 elections since 1999, and former US president Jimmy Carter declared that the Venezuelan electoral system “is the best in the world.”

I know that many will instinctively disagree with me but Lawrence Duprey has done us all a favour. By bringing the Clico/CLF takeover back into mainstream focus he has reignited the debate about the best way to resolve the mess that we have found ourselves in.

I joined Arrive Alive because I thought that, as motorists, we all needed to be concerned about road accidents and act upon what it would take to reduce the carnage on the nation’s roads. I always felt that anything higher than 80 kph could be dangerous.

It was with great pomp and fanfare, the new PNM government was chosen by the democratic process, last September. A memory still fresh in the minds of Trinidadian and Tobagonians alike.

I do not agree that the speed limit should be increased to 120km/hr. I remember reading, a while ago, that roads are engineered for a certain speed. I don't think ours are engineered, safely, for speeds of 120km.

It's never too late to do the right thing. It cannot be right to permit:
1. Politicians to appoint the Director of the SSA who is responsible for interception of communications (spying/wiretapping). (Section 4(1) of the SSA Act).

As a female who believes in women’s rights, I am concerned that those who are clamoring for abortion to be legalised due to their political, social and economic agenda are not informing the people of this country of the grave health risks posed by having abortions.

In T&T we have had a long history of flagrant corruption in and out of government. In 2013, police statistics revealed a murder detection rate of under ten per cent. The conviction rate may have been even lower.

My country, T&T, has always been a true friend to every other Caribbean island.

The Hindu Women’s Organisation of T&T (HWO) notes with great interest the suggestion made by Mr Sat Maharaj that “Government needs to look at the age at which young people engage in sexual activity, as opposed to minors marrying.” This recommendation was made in response to comments by Chief...

Most of us have heard that we now live in a global village. People routinely travel from place to place, country to country for work, pleasure and leisure. Of necessity to regulate such movement there are laws governing travel into and out of the countries that make up our world.

Raymond Ramcharitar is at it again. Out of nowhere and without relevant context, he conjures my name for villification exploiting journalistic licence as well as editorial indulgence.

I must applaud our Honourable Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley for his bold statement made concerning decrimalization of ganja, that is the act of a strong Leader. At the end of the day when all is said and done if things do not work out as expected everyone points there finger to the Leader.

I read with interest the recent exchanges between Mrs Kamla Persad Bissessar and Mr Faris Al Rawi about Mr Al Rawi’s relationship with Arcelor-Mittal.
