  1. People want the sand from the beach because it's finner with no rocks and no dust.
    So where there's demand there will be supply. Same as drugs
    People with trucks cannot feed their family, there are no trucking jobs. This is an issue.
    We import sand. Durrrr and we want to reduce the import bill. For food so mining the sand helps the economy.
    Just like we don't like to see our beaches distorted, a place in gyana is destroyed due to river sand mining.
    Sand has been mined from beaches for 500 yrs so wot. Some of the beaches cannot even be used if you swim u die.
    Look this needs to be regulated and taxed and monitored. The sand can build back its self durr.
    So think wow 500,000. In trucking tax and 10 jobs created. Buy local. The sand we get from gyana is almost free it's the the shipping that costs. Does know how renu and rolling stone look like poor PLp. How many yards of sand are scattered around all the beaches in stlucia 100 million. And what Touisum to we have 1000 a week. Should we stop quarries too because it's spoling our land scape and import rocks. What I am saying is one must strike a balance

    Regulate tax and provide employment.

  3. My fellow St.Lucians are really something else. This is not a laughing matter, but, with those comments you are forced to laugh.

  4. The sand on the truck must be returned to the beach. If they find the driver then sentence him to "hard labour" and he must return the stolen sand to Grande Anse Beach one pail at a time during the hours of 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. That would be an example of "alternative sentencing."
    Make sure you show his face on Facebook and SNO just like the guy who roasted the iguana.

  5. It eh making sense to abandon de truck, because dey will auction it and get more money. Gasson, if you leave de truck behind go and get it. Tell dem you are a volaire and you will never do it again. Maybe you broke your leg when de truck turnover and you have a guava stick holding your leg. Listen 2 me, doh be ashame, we eh going to make fun of you at SNO. Next time, steal sea water...it is safer.

  6. If you ever see anyone doing sand mining - call the police. These guys are not only mashing up our one natural resource, the sand is often not good quality for any industrial use.
