Parking meter burdenIt was a mass bereavement of sorts as persistent protesters in Georgetown continued their demonstration against the parking meter project on Thursday.The “Water Street Mourners” have now coined themselves a new designation – “undertakers” – as they once again led the parking meter protest in front of CitySave us from the burdensHall. This is the sixth straight demonstration organised by the Movement Against Parking Meters (MAPM) in response to the secretive manner in which the contract was signed between City Hall and Mexican company Smart City Solutions Inc (SCSI) and the subsequent rollout which attracted widespread controversy.At Thursday afternoon’s protest, the ‘mourners’ were clad in black and walked around on Regent Street holding replicas of a tombstone decorated in the colours of the parking meters, an open casket carrying the by-laws and another casket with a replica of City Hall inside. All the while, melodrama was on full display as the mourners expressed great melancholy with wailing sounds amid faux tears and screams, noting that “the city has died.”The turnout was sizeable and the protesters reiterated calls for the complete revocation of the parking meter contract. Some protesters, as highlighted on one of the placards, called on President David Granger to embody the traits of his namesake, King David, highlighting that the Head of State could save them from the “burden” of the parking meters.“I would like to ask President David Granger to be like David in the Bible and free the people of Guyana from this oppression; it’s too burdensome…please listen to the people, we are the ones that voted for you and put you in power so you have to listen to us,” protester “Tiffany” told this publication.Businessman Stanley McIntosh told Guyana Times that the demonstrations would continue until the project folded.“I think these people will stay out here until these people pack it up back, put them in the containers they bring it in and send it back to Mexico or wherever it came from,” he expressed.“Guyanese people cannot afford now to pay this type of parking…a car is not a luxury for some people, it’s a necessity,” the businessman added.Another demonstrator, Mohamed Rahaman decried the high cost of living in the country.“A man got three or four children; he got to come to work in Georgetown, [because] there are no jobs or work in the countryside, [but] you got pay to work, pay to eat, pay to shop, what is the reason?” the man queried.As the mock funeral continued, the “undertakers” laid the replicas on the ground and began to re-enact emotional scenes from a funeral. Mourners sprayed perfume around the coffins, which held markings such as “SCS Contract” and “by-laws” and flowers were thrown around the tombstone shaped as a parking meter. Councillor Junior Garrett, who was one of the four that signed the contract, arrived in the midst of the re-enactment. When MAPM protesters attempted to solicit comments from the official, he told them that they should “speak to the court” and calmly walked away into City Hall’s compound.It was Monday that the High Court denied the application for a stay of execution filed by Attorney-at-Law Kamal Ramkarran, who represented Mohendra Arjune, the civilian that challenged the legality of the parking meter project. This effectively cleared the way for paid parking to continue in the city pending the outcome of the matter. At the hearing, Justice Brassington Reynolds had explained that while the proceedings could act as a ‘stay’, it did not extend to the executive order of the parking meter contract. The stay had been intended to put a pause on the parking meter contract. This would have allowed motorists to park without having to pay.At last week’s protest, retired international commodities dealer Quinn Anderson had called for international donor agencies from the European Union, United States and Canada to withhold their funding until a more transparent project was rolled out. Demonstrators had pranced to the Dave Martins ballad “Postpone”, which highlighted many of the noted burdensome measures meted out to the public. (Shemuel Fanfair)
Last week, Agriculture Minister and Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm noted that, “the best way to show appreciation to the hardworking people who produce B.C.’s food is to shop local, year round. Not much says fresh food better than a farmers’ market.” Dawson Creek also has a farmers’ market, which is open on Saturday mornings from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m at 1444 102nd Avenue. South Peace MLA Mike Bernier also thanks the region’s farmers for what they contribute, saying, “Our local farmers contribute so much to our region, working hard year after year. They have been an integral part in building our communities in the South Peace and with the fall harvest here.”- Advertisement –

ADRIAN DOES THE DOUBLE!Congratulations to cat 4 member Adrian Daly  who, having returned the winning score of 36pts on Wednesday 28th Open at Barnhill, followed on with an even better return of 40pts to win the Saturday 1st October Open and his ‘double’. Having recorded 21pts over the outward nine on both days, Saturday’s front nine included a ‘blank’ at 4th but an assured 19pts on back nine gave him a one point winning margin over John Doran , runner-up with 39pts. With bogeys at 4th and 13th, John was just twoover for fifteen holes, birdies par three 16th but again, another bogey at 17th left him just short of a winning score with 74 gross. In third place was John Mc Glynn  with 37pts while Eamon Mc Glinchey  picked up the gross prize with 31pts gross.Sunday 2nd Confined competition saw two of the most hard-working and improved members of the club vying for top spot and it was Minor League team stalwart Mark Cohen  who took the honour by virtue of B.O.T. from Anthony Delap . Taking the turn at one over ‘2’s’, 19pts, back-to-back double bogeys at 14th and 15th almost had Mark lose out but a ‘fighting’ birdie at par three 16th gave him 20pts on inward nine and the win. Anthony’s double bogey at Hall Door [1st] was somewhat eliminated with a birdie at 8th for exactly the same ‘nines’ score as Mark but no doubt that birdie at 16th gave Mark the edge on the countback. It was great to notice that there were over fifty  cat 4 members taking part in last week’s competitions.A Letterkenny Golf Club team, under the captaincy of P.J.

SINN FÉIN has called for a Yes vote in the Seanad referendum as polls show people are worried about handing over all political power to fewer people in the Dail.But local TD Pearse Doherty thinks it should still be abolished.“The timing of this referendum in the weeks before the budget will certainly seem like a diversionary tactic by a government which wants to take the focus off of its cuts agenda that is causing so much hardship for so many families,” he said. “For most people the Seanad is irrelevant. They have never had a vote in a Seanad election, nor has the Seanad had any impact on their daily lives and struggles. With an in-built government majority, because of the number of Taoiseach’s nominees, it rubber stamps government decisions.“In the last two-and-a-half years, the Seanad has supported the government on every single occasion, including the introduction of the Property Tax, cuts to Disability Payments and the Promissory Note deal which is costing the tax payer €30 billion.“In recent years the only time most people will have heard anything about the Seanad was when former Fianna Fáil Senator Ivor Callely was investigated for abusing the expenses regime.“But the referendum on the Seanad is important. It does matter. It matters because the Seanad represents a blatant inequality at the heart of our political system. It matters because the cronyism and the elitism that are synonymous with the Seanad have fostered the type of politics that has brought this state to its knees. The failure to reform the Seanad by consecutive governments including Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and Labour echo the failure to reform politics as a whole. There has been plenty of time but no action. “Many people – including Michael McDowell and Michael Martin who were part of government during the Ahern years and to whom the Seanad represents a potential political lifeline – now claim to be committed to reforming the Seanad. You should judge these assertions by their actions over recent decades. When they had the opportunity to reform it they did nothing.“The Seanad has promoted political cronies and allies rather than ideas or visions. And Fianna Fáil is the party which has done the most to reinforce the perception of the Seanad as a hot house of cronyism.”Deputy Doherty went on: “The system of Taoiseach’s nominees in particular during the Bertie Ahern era was used to promote close political allies and cronies rather than doing anything to bring more diversity into the political system.“It was not used to increase the number of women in the Oireachtas or to ensure minorities were represented. In the main it has been a safety net for those who failed to get elected to the Dáil.“It may seem unbelievable but people have been nominated to the Seanad merely to secure parking and access to the Dáil bar for life! Examples of these so-called weekend Senators include current Fianna Fáil General Secretary Sean Dorgan. “The most damning feature of the Seanad is the elitism, inequality and discrimination that is at its core. There can be no place in a real republic, based on equality, for an elected office to which only a tiny percentage of the population have the right to vote.“By restricting votes to an elite of those educated in a number of select colleges (including Trinity College Dublin, UCD, UCC and UCG) as well as City and County Councillors, the Seanad is anomaly in a modern democracy. It runs in the face of the core principal that all citizens are equal. It is obviously wrong to most people that a house of parliament would discriminate against citizens based on where they were educated.“We know that many people will see this referendum as an opportunity to vote against the government. This is understandable given the broken promises and failures, and the hardship caused by cuts to local services and increased taxes and charges. But I would ask people to look at the issue before you on its merits. There is no defence that can be made of the Seanad in its current form. It needs to be abolished.“Sinn Féin seeks to build a New Republic on this island based on equality for all citizens. We want to see an end to privilege and elitism, and to the cronyism and influence of vested interests that have so damaged politics in this country. Fairness, democracy and equality of citizenship demand that the current Seanad be abolished. Vote Yes on October 4th.” SINN FÉIN CALLS FOR YES VOTE IN SEANAD REFERENDUM was last modified: August 23rd, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
Donegal Minister Joe McHugh has welcomed €5,000 funding for the Spraoi agus Spórt Family Centre in Inishowen.“From an idea of a parent and toddler group, Spraoi agus Spórt has grown into to a truly valuable local community group in Carndonagh,” Minister McHugh said.“They offer hundreds of places for families every week and are doing tremendous work on a social enterprise front. “The community is at the heart of this idea and it’s at the heart of everything they do. It is great to see the Government supporting their work and long may that continue.”The €5,000 grant was sanctioned through the Department of Justice and Equality under the 2019 Communities Integration Fund.Minister McHugh added: “Volunteers are key to all the projects that are being supported by this fund and I hope that it provides Spraoi & Spórt with a little bit of a boost in their good community work.“One aspect of the Communities Integration Fund is to support the integration of migrant and host communities. It’s a real sense of inclusion and it’s community spirit at its best, with groups having to show how they will involve both migrant and host communities in their activities.” Inishowen Spraoi & Spórt centre receives €5,000 grant was last modified: July 12th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
13 May 2011 Affordable rental units in the inner cities would also help alleviate the housing backlog in the country. The project is a partnership between the Department of Human Settlements, its Western Cape counterpart, the National Housing Finance Corporation (NHFC) and the Cape Town Community Housing Company (CTCHC). “Our priority is to ensure that we provide not only decent, but affordable rental units within the city centre in line with our mandate to ensure that people stay nearer to places of work, clinics and schools,” Sexwale told guests at the event. The aim was to build more than 25 000 rental units countrywide over the next three years. Providing affordable rental units “Part of our objective as a department is to ensure that we increase the pace at which we construct and renovate inner city buildings,” Sexwale said. “These houses we are opening today provide exactly that; it gives our people dignity [and] decent shelter at a very affordable rate,” . Sapa Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale has unveiled 341 new units at the Morgan’s Village III affordable housing project in Mitchells Plain, Cape Town, targeting people earning between R1 500 and R3 500 per month. “Many of our people come to cities for work. They come from different provinces of our country, leaving their homes. What they are looking for is decent and affordable rental options, a place they can put their head down, but a decent place,” Sexwale said. The Morgan’s Village project is the second to be opened by Sexwale in the past two days, the first being in Polokwane. Once complete, the project will consist of 682 mixed development units. Sexwale said the government was increasing the pace of providing affordable rental units within city centres across the country, in line with its programme “to do things differently and faster”.
