    I haven't kept up with the education system in Jamaica, but when I went to school, secondary education was almost a waste of time. It was a relic of the British system, which was essentially a rite of passage into the upper classes. Irish playwright Brendan Behan told me in Toronto that the only useful thing he learned in secondary school was that if you spit on an eraser it will rub out ink. My question is: in view of Bruce Golding's promise to provide free secondary education for all, wouldn't that money be better spent in developing an efficient trade school/apprenticeship program financed in part by tax breaks for the journeymen who agree to train apprentices?

    We are adding a new component. You can record your question via your digital camera and submit the video to me. If you saw the debates last night it was a great component. Thanks

    Jamaica is known as the land of wood and water. Given Jamaica's natural and renewable resources what are your plans to develop & utilise renewable sources of energy, recycle products and reduce waste?

    I understand bauxite mining is proposed for the Cockpit Country. I want to know if the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition will make a commitment to block the proposal and preserve this unique and irreplaceable natural resource.

    This question is for both reps.

    What does your party plan to do to solve the problem/issue of violent crimes committed by JAMAICANS against JAMAICANS?

    Does your party have any plans or initiative in place to deal with your ineffective police/military force? and what is the timeline/frame in which you expect to have these issues addressed and problems solved?
