Published

By

The Government of Canada funded Improved Access to Justice in the Caribbean (IMPACT Justice) Project hosted a ‘Conference on the Constitutions and Model Legislative Initiatives in the OECS’ on 5-6 December 2019 at Ocean Terrace Inn in Saint Kitts.

The IMPACT Justice Project is implemented from within the Caribbean Law Institute Centre, Faculty of Law, The University of the West Indies (UWI), Cave Hill Campus.

Topics on the agenda were: a comparative analysis of OECS constitutions; the standardisation of judicial pensions in the OECS; highlights of IMPACT Justice’s Model Business Names Registration and Trade Marks bills; the potential establishment of a sexual offences registry; arbitration in the OECS; providing for continuing legal professional development (CLPD) in small jurisdictions; the benefits of community mediation; and, gender-based analysis plus and the IMPACT Justice Sexual Harassment Model Bill.

The participants comprised of parliamentarians from Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. They were joined by representatives of the legal fraternity from throughout the OECS, with representatives from the Bar Associations of Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, the OECS Bar Association, and the Organisation of Commonwealth Caribbean Bar Association. Members of the media from Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines were also present.

The objectives of the conference were to enhance awareness of OECS constitutional provisions and to encourage consideration of IMPACT Justice drafted legislation by governments through explaining some of the key provisions and sensitising their representatives to the initiatives. The presence of the media also served to ensure that the information shared at the conference would be disseminated throughout the OECS.

In her remarks at the opening of the event, High Commissioner of Canada to the OECS, Her Excellency Marie Legault, pleaded with the delegates to ensure that the model legislation provided and the legislative drafters trained by IMPACT Justice are utilised to meet the needs of the region’s countries and to enhance capacity where possible. The Hon. Pam Webster delivered remarks on behalf of the OECS Assembly, offering thanks the Government of Canada for providing the opportunity for regional parliamentarians to gather in such a forum and noted that these initiatives help to assure the region that Canada is serious about its development. She concluded that development projects such as IMPACT Justice are a worthwhile investment in the region.

St George’s Leo Club World Leo Day 5 December 2019

Published

By

On 5 December 2019, the St George’s Leo Club, celebrated World Leo Day, 62 years of global service!

In 1957 in Abington, Pennsylvania, Bill Graver asked his father, Jim Graver a member of the Glenside Lions Club, “Why isn’t there a Lions sponsored service club for young people?” That question was a catalyst for action to form a youth arm of Lions Club International, which resulted in the chartering of the first Leo Club on 5 December 1957, sixty-two years ago. Thirteen years later, on 25 February 1970, the St George’s Lions Club chartered the St George’s Leo Club.

Leo Elmo with students of Constantine Methodist School

As this day marks a significant milestone in Leoism and Lionism history, the St George’s Leo Club conducted a literacy project at the club’s adopted school, Constantine Methodist. The resounding message that was the theme of the day, was the importance of literacy. To bring across that mantra, fun and exciting activities were held to captivate the students’ interest. Our Leo ‘Elmo’ mascot visited the junior grades and engaged in interactive chatter about reading and its importance, whilst encouraging them to always read. Next, an active reading session was held with Elmo and a junior grade, followed by a creative reading and writing piece with a senior grade, where prizes were given to the most innovative writers. Additionally, with the sponsorship from Grenada Schools Inc., we were able to donate over 100 books to the school’s library, together with stationery items compliments Bryden & Minors.

The day’s activity was filled with literacy reading and writing fun with Elmo, thanks to the kind assistance of Waggy T Rentals and Sounds Company, along with a very artistic literacy cardboard picture frame, made by PressiiBoo Dessins.

St George’s Leo Club, wishes to express sincere appreciation to all who made this day truly magical. As we continue our work of service and support in our communities, we encourage our young people to join our cause, as with more hands-on-deck, we definitely can make a greater impact.

Come next year, 25 February 2020, the St George’s Leo Club will be celebrating 50 years! A number of community projects will be held in commemoration of this jubilee. We look forward to the continued support from wellwishers, our communities and country.
