Removing an MLA from office

Removing an MLA from office

| 14/12/2017
While I am familiar with the process for removing a premier and the speaker from the speakership, the process for removing an MLA from the Legislative Assembly entirely is unfamiliar to me. Would I be correct in assuming that it includes a formal review and a vote in the LA? Also in the case of [&he [...]

A local media house claims it is the ‘most trusted’ news publication, a radio station claims it is ‘number one’. Are there no advertising laws in Cayman that at least require entities to provide evidence of their claims? By the way, did you know I am the best question submitter? [...]

Wants to stop neighbour’s dog coming into yard

| 23/10/2017
Am I right in thinking the Agriculture Department has no website? If it does not, why not? I wanted to check for such things as how to get assistance with dealing with a neighbour’s dog always invading my property and killing and/or chasing chickens, cats, etc, none of which I want happening.

Getting excused from serving as a juror

Getting excused from serving as a juror

| 18/10/2017
As a Caymanian, I am truly happy to carry out juror duty for my country — it is an honour to do this. However, I am self-employed and my business is literally not able to run without me present, which can impact heavily on the income for my family. Should I be called for juror […] [...]

Recycling should be required in Cayman

Recycling should be required in Cayman

| 06/10/2017
I’m wondering why recycling is not mandatory in Cayman Islands. We all know garbage is a problem worldwide. But looking at “Mount Trashmore”, it’s huge here. In the past we had two garbage collections weekly, cut back to one now. Why doesn’t DEH replace the second collection with a recycla [...]

I need an expensive procedure which is over the limits of my health insurance. I have negotiated a reduced price with the hospital if I pay them cash.

I was trying to go to Seven Mile Beach on Sunday and I saw a beach access by Christopher Columbus condos going into West Bay. When I pulled to the roadside by the beach access, I saw signs on the condo complex wall stating the roadside was a fire lane and parking was not allowed […] [...]

What size knives are allowed in Cayman?

| 14/09/2017
I just want to know what the legal size limits are for knives here in Cayman. I’ve seen a few knives overseas that I would like to get, but I don’t want to get in trouble with customs. I’ve tried asking a few people here, but the answers vary a lot. So is it blade […] [...]

Concerned about cruelty to animals

Concerned about cruelty to animals

| 06/09/2017
Who decides what is animal cruelty and what is humane? Why is it inhumane and illegal to kill a blue iguana but it is OK to hack a green iguana to death with a machete? Why is it humane to keep a small cage packed full of land crabs in the hot sun for days […] [...]

What are the rules for using Segways?

| 04/09/2017
I have been seeing Segway tours being conducted on the sand on Seven Mile Beach, on the sand typically between, I think Royal Palms up to around Beach Suites. Groups of 10 people or so a couple of times a day on the sand leaving tracks along the beach and wiggling around sunbathers. Is this [&hellip [...]
