CARICOM: Caribbean Leaders Cautious About Regional Ferry Service

Caricom Headquarters
Georgetown. Guyana.

BASSETERRE, St. Kitts and Nevis, February 27, 2019 (CMC) – Caribbean Community (CARICOM) leaders, today, adopted a more cautious approach, towards establishing a regional ferry service that has been bandied about, for more than a decade.

The meeting in Kingstown dealt with, among other things, the Multilateral Air Services Agreement (MASA), proposals for a regional ferry service and easier security check-in for in-transit passengers.

Recently while out dining, a scene gradually began unfolding before my eyes– one which in my opinion only served to further reveal the collapse of modern day parenthood. Sitting in the booth adjacent to mine, deeply involved in their gastric fare was a young couple with three very young children.  Suddenly, the quasi silence was broken, by the plaintive pleading of the father saying to one of the girls.” Please, pretty please!
