THE EDITOR:

Overshadowed by the events of last week which included the tragic flooding of south west Trinidad and the ongoing controversy of the President’s housing allowance, was the reported celebration of the Strike Squad’s legacy of November 19, 1989. What legacy?

Piers according to the engineering fraternity; ‘are easily identifiable by pylons, poles or posts upon which a concrete or wooden pathway is placed well above the high water to assist people and goods to and from boats’.
