Re: Property Tax in Trinidad & Tobago

Was waiting for this thread to take a bump again.
They assessing residentials as normal, but the tax will not be implemented for at least 2-3 more years.
There are simply not enough submissions to reach the legally mandated threshold to start making the valuations enforced.

Re: MASSY to unveil $125,000 car

Even though an all electric vehicle range easily covers the average trini daily work commute, it doesnt sit most comfortably with people to only have a maximum 120km range in your car.

Is a very common sentiment.

Not sure of the ob/gyn part, but generally people in south go to Southern Medical in Vistabella or Gulf View Medical. For tests and such you generally get referred to Victoria Medical, which is in Vistabella, up the road from the Yacht Club.

Re: Barry Padarath Is Now A Daddy!

I wonder if this is news simply because is so strange to want to take the father role of a child in TnT now.

I wish Padarath all the best. Big deal if he lispy and limp-wristed, he is already a bigger man than many for going out of his way to become a father.
