Smith made that call during Tuesday’s sitting of the House where legislators debated whether to have the review under the oversight of a larger Constitutional Review Commission.
He said: “The persons that we need to get more involved now are the youths. Hence, I propose that in addition to what we have already, we include a youth subcommittee with representatives from all main islands — Anegada, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda and Tortola.”
“After all, this constitution review, as well as the next, will have the greatest impact on the lives of the present youths. Therefore, we need to give them a greater role to play from now, and I strongly recommend this as a course of action to be taken now during this exercise,” the first-term legislator added.
“I am using the term “box tickers” to refer to employees who exist only or primarily to allow an organization to be able to claim it is doing something that, in fact, it is not doing.”
