Can Anyone Name One Real Achievement In Eleven Months?
Oh yes, Minister Byer-Suckoo obviously has too much on her plate because other than a series of public speaking engagements she has accomplished nothing in eleven months. Nothing.

New legislation to set handling and disposal standards for toxic chemicals like those that resulted in the closing of Louis Lynch school?
Petroleum pipeline standards that would require companies to measure transmission losses on a daily basis to detect pipeline leaks – to prevent another pipeline leak from going undetected for months as happened with Shell?
Targeting of the Top 10 polluters on Barbados to document, educate, notify and then charge?
New Environmental Legislation of any kind?
Major educational and enforcement efforts introduced to stop the island-wide littering that is destroying our value as a tourist destination?

The only real Environmental “accomplishment” of the DLP Barbados Government in the last 11 months has been HARMFUL to the environment. The DLP government passed a development plan that would allow commercial and residential construction on the Graeme Hall wetlands buffer zone.
That is the sum total of what your Barbados Government has accomplished in the last 11 months in respect of the environment!
