They must tackle crime, unemployment is part of
the cause for crime. Sometimes you go to get a job
and you get turned down and frustrated.
Some people just naturally do crime because they
find it is an easier way out rather than working.
I want them to address housing.
They should double-check who
they're giving out houses to, there
are plenty poor people out there,
don't just give to any and
There are poor people who do
need housing more than maybe
those who have jobs, that is
because they can pay for housing.
They should build houses to give poor people, don't
charge them high prices, it doesn't have to be a big
house, something comfortable.
They might have a job but might have to work all
their life to save money to pay for the house.
Akeem Hart, Malabar
It have youth men out there who don't have their
mother and father and really want to elevate
themselves in life. It have certain
things like court case holding them
back and more employment will be
the better thing for them. Youth men
are easy to be influenced, it's easier
for them to do something wrong
than right. If the Government show
us that they could help them out in a
way that they don't have to do the
wrong and find programmes for them to do.
What I would like to see them talk about is more
facilities for the youths to do things and elevate
themselves. Put them in a place where they could be
more socialised, where they could learn, show their
trade and work their ambition.
Girlyn Toolsie, Cumuto
I just want to see that the young
people get employment so they could
have the things that they need.
Employment is important because
when they don't get work, they handle
other people's things, so as long as
they get work, things will work.
The leaders should talk about housing for the poor
people as that takes up most of their money.
Andrew Prince, Maloney
I'd like to see them big up first agriculture, tertiary
education and the institute of medicine. We all need
food, education is the key to success. A lot of people,
babies, children and old people need healthcare, and
people don't really show interest
in this which are most important
to us but they studying highway.
They built a brand new hospital
in San Fernando side and
dragging their feet with a
hospital for Arima. A building just
burned down in Arima a few days
ago and they're only now looking
to fix hydrant.
They build a quick police
station and delay building a fire station, crime is a
better issue than emergencies.
I want the leaders talk about food because the
nation needs food. They moved LID or URP from
cleaning drains and have Cepep doing that. Why they
didn't leave it that way and let Cepep do agriculture

THE GREAT DEBATE
Corruption, crime worry citizens
..."Stop playing politics"
Hugh Sorias, Arima
What is lacking here is spiritual values in the minds
of people. When you don't have God in you,
everything will tend to go wrong, you never really
apply yourself to learn what is God's
plan for mankind. The heads should
talk about how to put things in place
for the youths who're coming up to
make sure that T&T is a better place.
They should learn a trade, give them
things that they could work on so they
won't have to be idling, give them a
piece of land, let them make a garden.
Don't offer them a house, everybody wants a
house, but give the poorer class of people a piece of
land, that is a start.

We need to look at housing, food prices and unemployment, rent now is $3,000 to $4,000 and up. That is
unfair for people in a lower income bracket. If you go HDC, you will see a lot of forms, if you check around there
are a lot of people owing rent and on a monthly basis they could hardly meet their rent. A lot of food prices
going up too high, our money is not meeting that value, $500 can't really buy anything. Some houses have six
and seven people. When we can address that, I believe we will alleviate at least 50 per cent of the problems
because those are the basic necessities for life. The leaders, whether from the two parties, have to understand
this is a time they have to address the needs of the people and stop playing politics. My neighbourhood needs
water. People are getting to realise, from low to high, that politics has become a game.
