Bus shelters and other issues

I have been writing letters to the editor since the ’70s and from years ago I have appealed to our government to erect bus shelters for our schoolchildren but to no avail. The rainy months are back again; we could erect more as some children have to walk for long distances. I would also like to know if government provides transportation for all the primary schools.

There is one thing that I would like to commend our government on and that is about the changes which were made to accommodate the handicapped: namely the sidewalks and the entrances to buildings. I would also like to commend former Auditor General Alastair Swarbrick again on his findings of failures in the government departments, especially the social services department and the planning department. Dr. Marc Lockhart also needs to be commended on his comments a few months ago which were about legalization or decriminalization for the consumption of marijuana.

Recently, I noticed that there are signs erected at the Spotts dock about upgrading but nothing is really being done. That is where our attention needs to be focused, not on that extremely expensive dock in George Town.

Lastly, I would like to state that we do not need to follow in the footsteps of the rest of the world. Homosexuality is a definite no and the release of murderers back into our society is also a definite no! There are also other countries that do not adhere to “human rights” standards. We have our traditions and we are going to keep them. None of our MLAs must be afraid of the Human Rights Commission.
