ATS saga

I believe the Leader of Opposition should move a motion in Parliament for a commission of enquiry into allegations of safety breaches at Nadi International Airport during the ATS workers' lockout.

Sevens

event

To all those who promote holding a HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series event here with all its inherent spill-off effects, I plead with you to think again before we are embarrassed.

While I don't hold your effort in mockery or ridicule, I question the absence of many five-star hotels in Suva to accommodate these teams.

Nor do we have great shopping areas and international grounds for practice. Don't take me wrong, we all want to handle international events, but unfortunately we don't have the facilities.

Posing

with limbs

Sick are the people who pose with the limbs of deceased people and that too on social media. Just how shameful. Popularity is not gained by these acts. May God give these kind of people some brain. Simply pathetic. Period.

Athletic

track

Very surprising that an athletic track has moved to the West to benefit the school children of the West, but a very popular school only a walking distance away has to have their inter-house meet on their school's grass turf. Was this supposed to be the reason of having the tracks in the West, for the children of the West to have better access to the facilities? Whether it's expensive or the grounds are booked, I wouldn't know the real reason. These were the words of the Prime Minister at the opening of Churchill Park on March 17, 2017, and I quote: "The Western Division deserves the kinds of amenities and infrastructure that will support the athletes who live here and who work hard every day to improve themselves. Now you don't have to go all the way to the National Stadium in Suva to run on synthetic tracks, because you have them here. These are all-weather synthetic tracks that meet the standards of the International Amateur Athletics Federation. So when our Western Division athletes compete in big games, they will compete on the same surfaces they have been training on. There will be no surprises."

Hopefully other schools will have their inter-house meets on the tracks not because of its quality but to improve the individual standards of athletics.
