West Portland MP, Daryl Vaz, also paid tribute to Dr. Bloomfield in the House of Representatives yesterday.
An emotional Vaz told the House that Dr. Bloomfield was a person on whom his family would rely on from time to time for medical assistance.
Mr. Vaz says both he and Dr. Bloomfield appreciated the importance of placing the interest of the people of Portland first.
Mr. Vaz called on the leaders of both major political parties to urge their supporters to display restraint in their comments on both electronic and social media about Mr. Bloomfield’s killing.
He also called on the House to debate in short order a private members motion which Dr. Bloomfield had tabled before his passing.
The motion called for Port Antonio square to be renamed in honour of National Heroine, Nanny.
