Today on Talk Jamaica we look at the JPS, were they in their right to give only 12 hours of service to certain communities? Why is it that we only heard from the politicians after the JPS decided to take such drastic actions? What are they doing to help rid electricity theft? We hear from a representative from JPS, Minister of Government and Member of Parliament Damion Crawford, and also a citizen who was affected. There is also 'the week that was' and feedback. Join us at 4pm, Talk Jamaica, commentary at its best

The discussion segment begins at 5 p.m. Today, we look back on a call made by former Jamaican Prime Minister P.J. Patterson that more Jamaicans need to consider being more tolerant towards members of the LGBT community, bearing in mind current world trends. Does homophobia really exist in Jamaica? Should Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller act on her promise to hold a conscience vote on the matter of repealing the buggery law? What are religious leaders saying? What’s the position of civil society? We explore those issues and more in the discussion segment:
Then, later in our TALK BACK segment, we take your calls and present your responses to our feedback question: Do you agree with a suggestion by Former Prime Minister PJ Patterson that more Jamaicans should consider being tolerant towards members the LGBT community?
The discussion segment will focus on two issues. First, we speak with Education Minister Rev. Ronald Thwaites who, in his sectoral presentation, announced changes to the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) and the Primary Exit Profile (PEP) that is set to replace the GSAT in 2017.
In the second discussion at 5:15, we look at the issue of abortion. Is it time to legalize abortion in Jamaica? What’s the church’s view? We speak with North West St. Ann MP, Dr. Dayton Campbell, whose sectoral presentation touched on that issue.
On Talk Jamaica this Sunday we will look back at the massive Jamaica CAUSE rally in Half Way Tree and the arguments presented. We will also examine the arguments from Human Rights advocates along with a representative from CAUSE. Can there be consensus in the matter?
