Following last month’s protest action by residents of La Brea, Minister of Energy and Energy Industries and Member of Parliament for the area, Nicole Olivierre had addressed the high rate of unemployment within her constituency.
Speaking on the Power Breakfast Show this morning, Minister Olivierre indicated that talks to help defuse the tensions surrounding the issue have commenced.
She acknowledged that a lapse in routine maintenance of roads and infrastructure in the community over the past five years has led to the current state disrepair.
The Minister also stated that there is potential to revive the tourism industry in La Brea.
She intends to work in conjunction with the Ministry of Tourism to propel the regeneration of energy sector attractions.
