United Workers Party (UWP) Castries South Candidate Senator Mary Isaac is calling on government to address the air pollution problem in the constituency, which she hopes to represent.
Isaac told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that while it is “politically expedient” for the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) government to surface the Ciceron Road, it has been left in a deplorable state.
According to her, the dust and pollution coming out of the construction works, is badly affecting the children, especially the babies in the orphanage, and they are starting to show signs of discomfort.
“So I am imploring the Labour Party Government to do all what can be done as expeditiously as possible, to ease the discomfort that they have caused the children in that area,” Isaac said.
The Castries South Constituency has been plagued with a number of other issues for the past several years, according to the UWP Senator, which she would like addressed.
The former trade unionist has already expressed confidence that the UWP will secure the Castries South seat in the next general elections and promised to implement major changes in that constituency.
