Keith Rowley

Sod turned for new Hospital: Prime Minister Keith Rowley, centre, Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh and Glenda Jennings-Smith, parliamentary secretary in the Ministry of National Security and MP for Toco/Sangre Grande, turn the sod yesterday for the new Sangre Grande hospital. The new facility will function as a “partner” with the current Sangre Grande Hospital and the Enhanced Health Centre in providing a comprehensive set of healthcare services to the communities in East Trinidad.

Stop bad-talking Trinidad and Tobago and be more grateful. This was the advice ­given by Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley yesterday, as he spoke at the sod-turning cere­mony for the new billion-dollar Sangre Grande hospital at Ojoe Road.

Addressing a caller who he said had called into a radio station following his presentation at the United Nations General Assembly in New York last week, Rowley said citizens take too much for granted. The caller, he said, had taken issue with his comments at the General Assembly, where he spoke of T&T’s poverty eradication programme.
