Senate to discuss naming Hall of Justice after Noor

The Senate today debates an Independent motion seeking in part to have the Hall of Justice in Port-of-Spain renamed the Noor Hassanali Hall of Justice. :beermug: The motion, filed by Independent Senator Gail Merhair, also seeks to have the Crown Point International Airport renamed the Arthur NR Robinson International Airport and to have Wrightson Road renamed the George Chambers Avenue:beermug:

Also sought is the renaming of the Churchill-Roosevelt Highway as the Ellis Clarke Highway. Hassanali, now deceased, served as President as did Clarke and Robinson in previous years. Chambers served as Prime Minister between 1981 to 1986. Merhair’s motion calls for the renaming of the various structures and roadways to take place as a “symbolic gesture of national gratefulness” (sic) for the many years of distinguished service by the former Heads of State.

I learned about this from Michael Anthony's book "The Making of Port of Spain", wonder why it is not a routine part of the curriculum, at least when I was in primary and secondary school...

Well imagine takin notes from a man who stutterin/tie tougue/and talkin fast. He was cantankerous 2 d max. When u did an essay and u write nonesense he would write all kind ah colour comments. For eg u must have been in Guyana when I taught this.


D key 2 passin WI History at d A level was essay writing so I asked him 2 mark essays 4 me and he did and that is d only reason I passed A Level history. I told him I was givin him some readin material on his flights. He was not around much because of FIFA business but at A Level u do d bulk of d wuk s I did nt mind he was not arund because his class use 2 strt 730
