Pearl Of China Fast Becoming An ‘Edifice Of Contempt’ – Smcp Calls For More Information-

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten — The Sint Maarten Christian Party (SMCP) views with grave concern the groundbreaking ceremony for the Pearl of China project that took place on Saturday on the Belair Beach. While as a party we are not opposed to economic development nor sound investor relations, it is the right of the people to be adequately informed, prior to the launching of a project of such a large magnitude.

The government has yet to confirm whether any environmental impact assessments or carrying capacity studies were conducted. What are the long term ramifications of this project on government’s coffers? Where is the feasibility study to suggest how much revenue this development would generate for St Read more

The Dump Is The Newest Political Football

I am so amazed to hear all these older politicians who have been part of Government, either in power or in opposition for over 30 years, try to convince the people that finally after watching the dump grow for the last 30 years or more, they will provide the solutions.

They have had reports dating back years, which indicates to them the health hazards for our people. Yet they chose to disregard the solutions since many have become rich from this dump growing more than six floors.

I really hope that St Read more

This is quite evident by the fewer recorded ships that have been visiting the island, the loss of cruise lines to other islands and the less than optimistic view of businesses as to the economic future of St Read more

The Role Of Your Elected Parliamentarian

As a politician, campaigning for the elections on September 26th, I am constantly bombarded with questions such as, what can you do for me? Will you fix my papers? Can you make sure that I get a job? Will you increase the pension of my aged mother who is unable to survive on such a meager income?

I truly understand the plight of these persons and I wish I could tell them yes. But that would be only telling them lies, making empty promises and giving them false hope. Unfortunately, this is what the majority of parties and politicians are doing Read more
