  1. The searching questions asked by Nandalall are exactly the sort of questions that should be asked concerning the company that was contracted over ten years ago to widen the East a Coast Road. For three consecutive elections you would see activities perk up just before the elections and then nothing for years until the next elections. Which is the company contracted, how much money was given, why after all these years do we only have sand on either side of the road from Chateau Margot to Plaisance? Who is holding the company accountable for all the millions That would have been disbursed and we still have no proper permanent infrastructure?
