J’ouvert band leaders have rejected a proposal by the National Carnival Commission (NCC) and Port-of-Spain City Corporation for the introduction of a fine for errant masquerades who deface and damage properties during Monday mas.

And according to Minister of Community Development, Culture and the Arts, Dr Nyan Gadsby-Dolly, the band leaders also rejected the payment of an up-front clean-up tax.
