Rowley tours oil-hit beaches
By CECILY ASSON Monday, December 30 2013
PEOPLE’S National Movement and Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley yesterday briefly met with La Brea residents whose lives in one way or the other have been affected by a major oil spill when he paid a visit to the three hardest hit communities. Rowley was accompanied during the visit to Point Coco Beach, Point Sables Beach and Coffee Beach by La Brea Member of Parliament Fitzgerald Jeffrey who once again issued a call for relocation of some 24 families from the disaster area. Jeffrey told Newsday: “Dr Rowley wanted to see first hand what the situation was like and that’s why he came. He was alarmed and taken aback at what he saw and he too agreed that relocation is necessary.”
Since the oil spill two weeks ago, the fumes in the air have been cause of concern for mostly young children who according to reports have been falling ill and have to regularly seek medical attention.
