Scout leader: It’s unfair talk


Share post:

THE ISSUE of too many women in the Barbados Boy Scouts Association has again cropped up and chief commissioner Dr Nigel Taylor has had enough.

After the annual march through The City yesterday, Taylor again addressed the issue, which had been raised by some of the mothers who were participating in and watching the parade.

“We have heard the comment about too many women in scouting and I am tired of addressing this issue. While this may be true, it is also unfair because without women in scouting, there would have been sparse leadership.

“The male leaders in scouting are working hard to increase male leadership but the males are not coming. We try, but I think men don’t understand their roles; they need to be cognisant of their responsibilities in helping to raise children,” he said.
