John Scott: Opportunities lost, from prosperity to ruin

John Scott: Opportunities lost, from prosperity to ruin

OPINION: By way of introduction let me quote a few of the grand plans, goals and objectives of the Cook Islands Party from its Manifesto and National Sustainable Development Plan.

Fletcher Melvin: ‘Decriminalise same sex relations’

Dear Editor,

We call upon our Cook Islands Government to remove any provision that criminalises same sex relations, from our Cook Islands Crime Bill when they go to Parliament this month. This is our Cook Islands opportunity to make our own decisions, and remove archaic laws, for our people.

Gerald McCormack: Deep sea dilemma: More scientific information required

OPINION: There is nothing to lose by giving out a few exploratory licenses, and much to gain in terms of knowledge on whether or not to go forward to actual mining.

Ruth Mave: Pride and dignity can hurt just as much as physical pain

OPINION: Keeping borders closed here, protects our elderly, reflects our humanity, and highlights our vulnerability.
