Take action, Mr Mayor

 San Fernando Mayor Mr Kazim Hosein’s response to quarrying at the San Fernando Hill

—that he wants to take a “human approach” and “engage in dialogue” with the person engaged in the quarrying—is curious, to say the least.

Isn’t quarrying of the hill illegal? Why isn’t the police investigating this report? This is a slap in the face to James Lee Wah and the San Fernando Citizens Action Committee, who fought relentlessly to preserve this San Fer­nando landmark. 

After years of lobbying the government, the Forestry Division of the former ministry of food production, marine exploitation, fores­try and the environment classified the hill a natural landmark in 1980. 

Mr Mayor, please explain your statement
