Water woes now a crisis, says Mia
BARBADOS’ water woes have been categorized as a national crisis.
That was the view of Opposition Leader Mia Mottley as she addressed hundreds of residents from water-starved communities in St Thomas and St Joseph at a Barbados Labour Party (BLP) community meeting at St Bernard’s Primary, St Joseph, on Tuesday night.
Explaining that there was no more important a project to the people and Government of Barbados than to find a short and long-term fix for the island’s water crisis, Mottley said the matter should be the main priority in the new year.
“This is not a Water Authority issue. This is a water issue affecting one in every four Barbadians in this country,” Mottley said.
