AVA HIRES CONTRACTORS TO REMOVE CATS FORCEFULLY FROM INTRUDING INTO HOMES

AVA has acknowledged that they hired contractors to remove cats, but only those who reportedly enters residents homes. This recent issue came to light when a Cat Welfare Society (CWS) mediator said that he had approached a man seen with a net and carrier to catch a cat that allegedly went into a residents house. The man siad he had been engaged by the AVA to remove the cat, and to bring the cat to AVA, or he would not be paid for the job. However, the cat was not found in the resident's house, and the mediator expressed his misgivings that the man, and any other cat catchers, would just take any cats in the neighbourhood and deliver it to AVA to receive his pay.

This raises the question of the safety of the cats. AVA clarified that they will close the loop by checking with the person who provided the feedback to check if the contractor was present, and if the correct animal was removed. They also reiterated that all cats caught will be taken care of by their officers daily at the AVA pound, and if those cats are found to pets, they will try to reunite the cats with their owners.

WOMEN SERVING NS IS BETTER FOR SG THAN HAVING PR SERVE NS

I think it is high time for females to serve NS since they haven't been producing enough babies with our falling fertility rate of below 1. Women can serve in paramedic, recce, sniper, scout, artillery, intelligence, UAV pilots, security, etc. There are so many roles that doesn't require physical strength and women can fit into these roles perfectly, leaving those physically demanding roles to men.

By doing so, we can increase manpower. I would also trust women citizens more than male PRs. Which makes me question why do we need PRs, who are effectively foreigners, to serve NS? No foreigners should ever be trusted to defend our nation. In times of war, they might even be recruited to be spies by foreign invaders.

FEMALE REGULAR: ALL S'PORE WOMEN SHOULD SERVE NS

Both males and females SHOULD serve. Maybe females could go into the medical side of things. We have a very severe shortage of trained paramedics as it is. Shorten the duration of NS to a year since having female conscripts means double the manpower.

FOREIGN DOMESTIC WORKERS IN S'PORE SHOULD BE GIVEN THE RIGHT TO FAST DURING RAMADAN

We have been taught to always respect other religions yet it is very upsetting to know not everyone is practising this. It is very common for Singapore households to have a FDW to help out in their homes. Most of these FDWs come from Indonesia, Phillipines, Myanmar & India. Employers have always been told to treat their FDW well but during this holy month of Ramadan it is very surprising to see employers not being very open to their muslim FDWs keeping a fast.

CUT FOREIGN WORKERS IN CONSTRUCTION? HOW ABOUT IT? SAVE S'POREANS FROM EXTINCTION

I refer to the article “BCA seeks to cut number of foreign workers” About 300,000 foreign workers are employed in the construction sector. “We aim to do that – to cut it down by 20 to 30 per cent… Whoever is left… will be the higher-skilled workers,” said Dr Keung. I would like to applaud Dr Keung for what I believe is the first ever major initiative to reduce foreign workers in a sector. As I understand that the bulk of the rank-and-file workers in construction are non-Singaporeans – what is arguably even more urgent is to reduce the foreign workers in the IT sector, as anecdotally Singaporean PMETs are the most affected in this sector.
