Shaliza Hassanali of the Guardian has an interesting piece on Ramesh L. Maharaj saying the government wants Laventille lands.

But Shaliza if you really wanted people to take you seriously why didn't you add to your story that the government is on the record as saying they are going to break down the community?
PM Patrick Manning had gone on a walkabout in Laventille prior to the general election and promised to break down the houses from the top to the bottom, and when there was an outcry he said the residents misunderstood him.
Then to get some more context, you could have spoken with a real estate expert who would have been able to tell you if those lands are really worth the fuss.

Lazy journalism Shaliza. We know you can do much better.
