    Use tear gas and rubber bullets. If a law implimented for the betterment of people it must be respected.

    Very good, Mr. Johnston will import vegetables and throw them in the sea like he did for Coconuts.

    Unbelievable. This was informed to the traders and transporters some time ago and they still don't comply. Minister says the plastic bins are being offered on installment basis. This is a good thing...why the fuss?
