Hart's poor track record
The writer of the letter "Hart's track record 'good'" (—Daily Express, July 4, 2012, A Saxena) has a lot of courage and must be writing in absolute bad faith. How any Trinidadian citizen, in his or her right mind, could write that kind of eulogy to Mr Calder Hart is unbelievable.
Maybe the writer is not aware that many of Mr Hart's projects were badly and unprofessionally made and finished.
• The National Academy for the Performing Arts (NAPA) will cost the taxpayers another $100 million-plus.
• The Tarouba stadium that was supposed to be ready for the Cricket World Cup several years ago is still not finished and will cost over $1 billion and will never be of any use to cricket.
• The five buildings next to the Hyatt hotel on Wrightson Road in Port of Spain are empty and still not finished; taxpayers are still paying for the rental of buildings for Government ministries and offices.
Please ask the writer what are they talking about.
