    I hope not... All of them together can't come up with a real working forward moving plan to open our borders.. Open the borders with a real plan is a good way of controlling the virus from coming in and Still allow for economical activities.....All they do is bal bla bla. Maybe they should not collect their salary for a month, then they might understand what its like for the people who did not get a salary in 6 months..

    HOA should have a discussion on increasing the minimum wage with the same 7%, then it wouldn’t have any “POOR PEOPLE” living & suffering in the territory.

      With all this talk about removing symbols of colonization, the speaker should lead by refusing to wear that white wigg.
