The first formal meeting of the L.A. took place on Wednesday 31 May. During the meeting MLAs sang the “let’s work together” song.

He wants the premier to replace Human Rights Commission because he doesn’t believe a “person who is a confessed atheist can objectively deal with matters in a predominately Christian nation.”
The speaker of the house, Hon. McKeeva Bush, vowed to modernise Parliament so that it can function in today’s era. Op. Leader Ezzard Miller plans to get in on this action by helping Mr. Bush pass legislation to help revamp Parliament.

That’s how four college students will be greeting locals when they go to India for a month long summer program. Paging Drs. Lee ,Watt, Anglin and DaCosta to the operating room.

They’ll have their travel, accommodations and stipend all paid for by Health City.
