"I'd rather learn
to dance in the rain,
than worry if I have
an umbrella for the
rest of my life."
--- Nikki Rowe
Life in a Moruga continues to be a
struggle for 68-year-old Alloy Triea
Guillermo and his wife, Susan, who
strained as they pulled a box cart
carrying a barrel of water across a
Jayson Joseph Just imagine in
this day and age after so much oil
money went through this country...
unbelievable. Something wrong.
Nancy Otero Come on, Mr MP,
please do something to help your
citizens who are truly struggling
with the basic, fundamental needs
in life (water). There's no reason for
this kind of hardship to still be taking
place in places that are neglecting
and abandon by the gov't. Someone
has to take responsibility and stop
abusing power and inflicting more
hardship on the poor and needy. Also
this post is getting international
attention and reflections poorly on
Laurence Armogan Who will be
blame for that?
Saph Tom Sookdeo This poor
old man at his age has to go through
this? What has this country come
to? And they blame one another.
Winston Benn This is like 70
years ago. What progress?
Crysil White And allyuh want us
to pay more tax...but for what really?
Renaldo Matadeen Blame Kam-
la?Sherry AR Kamla have dem pull-
ing box cart.
Mark John This is when you
know a country's government has
truly failed its people on every level
no matter which party is in power.
The people have every right to revolt
and they should revolt even more
against the inhuman treatment, and
the blind eyes, deaf-ears behaviour
of the authorities. It's just beyond
ridiculous and nothing but proven
incompetence at its worse in govern-
Jamie Pandohie All these taxes
Government and WASA collecting
and they can't construct back-up
reservoirs all over this country to
collect and store water during the
Mona Seebaran T&T going back-
ward. I remember people carry water
like this when I was a child.
Pamela Jagdeo If there is no
water in the taps what alternative
arrangements are in place? Why
should they buy water or pull it like
donkey when WASA is not held ac-
countable? What is the manager of
that area salary?
after boat stalls
A group of hikers who were res-
cued by the Coast Guard after being
left stranded for three hours in the
dark, windy shores of Chacachacare
Island are now demanding a full re-
fund from the organisers.
Sayre Shallow They should get
training before leading a group.
Looks like they lost a lot of business.
Dhanraji Ramlakhan Hiking in
Richlene Lewis I was one of
them, it was the worst experience
ever. Going to the hike the boat
was over capacity and tilted to one
side, almost throwing us overboard.
They didn't give us any life jackets
boarding, why? No co-ordinators or
guides were with us, they were safe
at Crews Inn because they all took
the other boat. Again, why?
Shanta Parmasar Thank God u
all are ok now.
Raphael Melchesidec They
should not request a refund of their
moneys, but they should sue for the
psychological agony and the pain;
fear; and discomfort suffered as a re-
sult of the breach of that duty of care
which the tour facilitators, as a mat-
ter of law, owed them, and which for
all intents and purposes were per-
formed in a most negligent manner.
Lisa Francis What a bad experi-
ence at sea.
Jam Triniboy Well from what I
hear, Trinidadians have horrible cus-
tomer service...point proven.
Cmary Trotman These ppl only
looking to make quick coins. I would
never go on a boat like that with my
son without a life jacket.
Richard Trestrail Authorities are
going to wait until there has been a
disaster before putting safety regu-
lations/legislation in place dealing
with touring/party groups.
Marlon F Espinoza Patrons
should always be aware of safety, and
should not have continued with the
trip if proper safety measures were
not adhered to. Photographs and
video should have been taken and
the authorities informed.
Our backs were
against a wall
Works and Transport Minister Ro-
han Sinanan yesterday justified why
the Port Authority of T&T (PATT)
had to pay far more for the rental of
the Trinity Transporter barge and
Atlantic Provider ferry in compari-
son to the Super Fast Galicia.
Joel Henry So, no cutting-cost
Rosemarie Minah Minister, it's
called planning and organising to
meet your goals to provide trans-
portation for the people of T&T. A
job the voters entrusted to the ruling
party of this country presently.
Cindy Ramnarine Omg... that's
8 hours to reach Tobago to and from.
I'm sorry for those truck drivers.
Nila Mahase Maharaj He com-
plaining about costs....money wast-
ing...scarce US dollars too! Who
owns those boats? How they were so
easy to get?
Chanka Ramkhalawan What
additional cost do we have to pay for
the barge and ferry to be towed into
the port to dock?
