Chateau Margot residents were ignored in relation to bond

Dear Editor,

With reference to a letter of March 5 captioned ‘Pleas about chicken pen fall on deaf ears’  in your popular and widely read newspaper which is known for championing the cause of the voiceless and beleaguered taxpayers in this country, one blogger known as ‘angry resident’ wrote the following:

“My sympathy to that taxpayer in Chateau Margot. There is also the big Metro Bond affecting the view and breeze of the neighbours.  How was permission granted to construct a bond in a residential neighbourhood. Chateau Margot was once a lovely, clean and breezy place filled with kind and helpful people living like one big family. The Ministry of Local Government must look into the activities of the NDC in that area.”

Editor, the structure referred to above was built some years ago, and several residents in Chateau Margot challenged the NDC of LBI/Better Hope about it granting permission to a company to build that large, ugly structure less than a stone’s throw away from the residence of the erstwhile chairman of the NDC.

Residents’ complaints were totally ignored by that chairman and today the large, ugly structure is a permanent eyesore for the peace-loving country folks in Chateau Margot.

Money talks louder than justice.

Yours faithfully,

(Name and address provided)

The Caribbean Voice has a holistic, collaborative approach to addressing social pathologies

Dear Editor, In response to our invitation to become part of the solution to social pathologies such as alcoholism, suicide, rape, drug use, child abuse, domestic violence and the like, Mr Nowrang Persaud stated, “While I unconditionally applaud all efforts to minimize the negative fallout from alcoholism, suicide, domestic and other forms of violence, I firmly believe that the chances of success in remedial or corrective actions are greater, if we work at the grass-roots level where we can more effectively ‒ as indeed I have been trying to do for the longest while ‒ help to minimize the incidence and the problems”.
