Canal No 1 dust problem will soon be resolved

Dear Editor,

Reference is made to a letter published in the March 12, 2018 editions of Stabroek News and Kaieteur News, under the headlines, ‘Canal No 1 project causing thick dust’ and ‘Why was it not possible to find a better way to undertake this project? Was no other option available?’, respectively.

The Ministry of Public Infrastructure wishes to first apologise to the writer of the letter, Mr Hubert Roberts, and the other residents who have been affected. Residents brought to our attention the issue of dust pollution and since then the Ministry has been working to ensure that the situation is mitigated. As Mr Roberts noted, we have taken steps, such as the constant wetting of the roadway, to reduce the amount of dust. We will continue to undertake measures that will lend to the improved comfort of the community.

The residents are further assured that the situation will soon be resolved as the project moves into its paving phase this week.

Yours faithfully,

Desilon Daniels

Public Relations Officer

Ministry of Public



I saw the writing on the wall

Dear Editor, Upon reading a letter titled ‘Every Councillor has a voice at the Georgetown City Council’ (SN, March 17) over my customary cup of coffee this morning, I couldn’t help but smile and shake my head in disbelief.

Narine received several items of correspondence from Public Infrastructure Ministry

Dear Editor, Reference is made to a statement issued on behalf of the Management of Classic International Hotel by Ras Leon Saul and published in the March 14, 2018 editions of Kaieteur News and Stabroek News, under the headlines ‘Delay in permission…Berbice hotel threatens to dismantle wind turbine, ship it back to India’ and ‘Government has not responded to offer to supply national grid from wind turbine’, respectively.

City Council elections were an unnecessary perversion of the democratic process

Dear Editor, Please allow me space to share thoughts on the recent Mayor and City Council elections as I believe the unnecessary perversion of the democratic process requires a response from those of us concerned about our nation’s younger generations.

WPA should put on its political agenda whether it makes sense to remain in APNU, coalition government

Dear Editor, When the news broke that columnists, Dr David Hinds, executive member of the WPA, and prominent trade unionist Mr Lincoln Lewis were banned from the Guyana Chronicle newspaper, I was certain that the decision to stop publishing the ‘Hind  Sight’, and ‘Eye on Guyana’ columns was one made by the government either at the formal or informal levels.

Each Councillor has a voice at the Georgetown City Council

Dear Editor, Please refer to an article which appeared in your Stabroek News issue of Friday March 16, 2018 on page.
