High Court breach
Environmental activist group
Fishermen and Friends of the
Sea (FFOS) is accusing the Gov-
ernment of breaching an interim
injunction stopping work on the
controversial $400 million Churchill
Roosevelt Highway Extension to Man-
Narry Singh: Notice they only build-
ing things only where the financiers have
land/property. So is real money passing.
Emmanuel George: Who are these
people representing? Standing in the way
Harry Ramharack: Has there been
any highway built that did not impact the
environment? The relevant approvals will
always lag behind. The great urgency for
this highway baffles many when other
more important departments are ig-
Neil Chambers: Mr Prime Minister, sir.
Please, I want you to keep building that
highway, do not stop. Please build that
highway for the people in the east, they
are the ones that live in that part of the
Aripo Savannas under threat
Running alongside the Valencia
Bypass Road there is a fence
constructed by the State that

Shawn Trini Guy: Soon we will have
no flora and fauna.
Neil Maturasing: Charge a tax for each
tree a private citizen cuts from his / her
own yard. A one-off thing, like $1000 per
tree! Follow the developed countries with
that type of initiative.
Burdened by poor
work ethic in T&T
Angela Lee Loy, Keston Nancoo
and Richard P Young partici-
pated in a conversation about
productivity with a former trade
unionist “who is professional, open
and candid,” in an attempt to better
understand the underlying causes
of this distinguishing feature of our
work ethic in T&T.
Vijay Harry: Yes indeed, but it’s in the
public/Government sector not the private
sector. Talk to the unionists who protest
for increased wages and better working
conditions and benefits, to have their
members acquire work productive habits!
Kenny Supersad: We have to cut the
government service. Stop Cepep and Urp.
Cut Petrotrin, Wasa, Ttec staff etc. And
then workers will get serious and work.
Unions are to blame too. Plus too many
Odin Thoor: Why a lot of businesses
fail is because a lot of times you have
business owners not being in their place
of business; instead they are busy chas-
ing more money or chasing skirts whilst
they leave the business to be managed by
persons who won’t manage the place as
an owner will. Cannot completely blame
worker ethics, blame too big shot busi-
Ravi Sant: Cut Cepep and Urp, make
jobs have value again. Then downsize
state funded companies.
George Lightyear: There’s also active
discrimination against graduates of Amer-
Emmanuel George: No country can
afford 8 hrs pay for 2 hrs work. None.
Narry Singh: Wuk for the boys.
Theresa Conliffe: What work ethics?
Gail Oneta Huggins: I know for a fact
that I work too hard, so forget u all wit
dat lazy talk.
Unions: Don’t blame
workers for low productivity
Union leaders say workers are
not to be blamed for the low
productivity in the work force.
Alonzo Harris: The union has encour-
aged laziness and delinquency at a lot of
state enterprises. Years and years fam-
ily members were hired without proper
qualifications and now they have no idea
to carry the company forward. The union
has drained Petrotrin enough. Time for
them to back off and let Petrotrin grow.
Camlar Mcleod: A whole load of crap,
but when these same union leaders be-
comes a senator they say something else.
