PM ASKS T&T TO HOLD STRAIN
Prime Minister Dr Keith
Rowley is asking the public to
hold strain while Government
searches for a new vessel for the
inter-island ferry service. He
made the call yesterday as he said
Government refused to be black-
mailed into negotiating another
five-year contract with the own-
ers of the Super Fast Galicia.
Camille Dwarika Hold strain.
Azard R Mohammed Why the
last minute as always?
Leba Maria Benjamin
Everything is to hold strain! Hold
strain until all yuh could find the
solution for the runaway crime too!
Neil Ramrattan So you were ne-
gotiating a contract without sourc-
ing alternative service providers and
cost estimates? What leverage did
you use to negotiate?
Tariq Abdul-Haqq What was
the agreement after the contract
expired in 2015? Who has been in
charge since then? Why was the en-
tire board and Hinds removed... no
one who can be made accountable
is there anymore... so many stories
Novana Forde Why and who
is responsible for this mess? They
should be held accountable. We must
not have the same problems every
year. Square pegs in round holes re-
move. It's time we do it right.
19,000 use air bridge
Caribbean Airlines (CAL) had
to put on seven additional flights
on Easter Monday to deal with
952 unexpected standby pas-
sengers travelling the domestic
route for the long weekend.
Arlene Hart Unexpected? Lol.
D Ricky Ant It's amazing. Not like
this has not been happening for the
last few decades.
Carrie Lyn Lord CAL is absolute-
ly ridiculous. And their employees
are so rude. The past two times we
have visited Trinidad we have tried
to get tickets to Tobago and each
time we call the airport and they tell
us one thing and when we go to the
airport, as instructed, the employees
there who are working for CAL are
telling us the complete opposite and
are so extremely rude and insulting.
Jagnarine Kowlessar Those were
the passengers that could not get on
Dad drinking over son's death fined
$15,000, loses permit
A Marabella man who said he
drank alcohol as a way of coping
with the two-year-anniversa-
ry of his son's death was fined
$15,000 and had his driver's per-
mit taken away yesterday, after
he was convicted for a third con-
secutive time for drinking and
Ariselle Dionne Nykkita Bull-
ard I hope he's offered counselling
for his ordeal. Yes, he should not
have driven while drunk and endan-
gered other lives but at the end of the
day we are all humans and it's clear
to see that this man is in grief and
Petty Mahase Three times, dat's
a lot. People lose their lives for driv-
ers like u. It's sad but its better this
way. Sorry for your loss an sorry to
say this but now u can drink an not
Tessa-Ann Williams Once again
our systems have failed. Counselling
should have been offered after the
first offence to assist with grief and
subsequent depression, thereby in-
advertently preventing another fam-
ily from suffering the same should he
have caused an accident. Just think
about how many more like him are
out there. We're missing a bigger
Ricky Tomm The son died in
2015, he was convicted in 2010 and
2014. What was his excuse then?
Nerissa Dqueen Next anniversa-
ry drink a Malta!
Sly Fox Sisnett Looking at so
many comments about how he
didn't deserve to have his permit
banned. Did you people read this
story? He has been convicted twice
before his son died! What was the
reason for him drinking then? Plus,
he was arrested at the scene of an
accident this time. Suppose he had
killed someone in this accident
would you all be so light? Right is
right and wrong is wrong.
TTUTA dismisses ministry's claim
of reduced violence
The Trinidad and Tobago Uni-
fied Teachers Association (TTU-
TA) has dismissed claims by the
Ministry of Education that there
has been a marked reduction in
violence and indiscipline among
secondary school students with-
in recent months.
Krishna Deosingh The man have
documents ppl, can't oppose him.
Neal Gokool Ministry in denial!
Johnny Cage Ministry of Educa-
tion promoting lies?
Kishore Khillawan The ppl in the
Ministry of Education are crazy!
You can't fool members of the teach-
ing fraternity who live through this
Winston Benn That ministry is
playing politics with the children's
lives and future...like every thing
else in the country...they are in de-
