On March 31, 2022, the Government of Dominica purchased 5,407,394 or 51.9% of DOMLEC’s shares from Emera Inc. He added that a new transmission network is being built to relieve pressure on DOMLEC’s network, reduce losses and increase reliability; allow for the efficient and resilient transmission of hydroelectricity from the Roseau Valley; and provide resilience to DOMLEC’s electricity network, thereby minimizing the damage caused by hydro-meteorological events and allowing for the quick reinstatement of power in the event of damage. MrSkerrit went on to speak on the impact of the Russia-Ukraine War on the current cost of petroleum and petroleum products, resulting in a corresponding increase in the cost of electricity.
He emphasized that the government is doing everything within its control to reduce the impact on families and businesses. He said they have urged the Independent Regulatory Commission (the IRC) to accelerate its review on the electricity tariffs, while the Government continues to push on to build and commission a geothermal plant. We are confident that with a reduction in the tariffs by the IRC, we can experience a reduction in the electricity rates.
May 29, 1979 is forever cast in stone, as a riot occurred in the environs of Government Headquarters and the National Parliament to prevent amendments to the Industrial Relations Act and the Libel & Slander Act
May 29th 1979 and the events that took place then, are forever written in stone, as a riot took place in the environs of the Dominican government ministerial building, and site of the National Parliament at around 9:00am, determined to prevent passage of two amendments; The Industrial Relations Act, and The Libel and Slander Act, citizens took to the streets, stones in hand, and a Dominica Defence Force riot squad armed and supported by the government of the time.
Lives were lost, nine people were shot, three of them, including a man and a thirteen-year-old schoolboy. This led to the end of the Patrick John Administration, on Friday, June 22, 1979, less than a year after he led Dominica into Independence from Britain. Speaking with Q95 on Monday, a former soldier shared his experience on that dreadful day.
Meantime, many others who either experienced the events shared their experience and sentiments of that historic day, and juxtaposed that with the dread act of that era.
Some of the voices of those who remembered May 29, 1979.

ECCB Governor Timothy NJ Antoine says the issue of food pricing, and interregional marketing & distribution of local farmers produce, may soon see some positive headway
The issue of Food pricing, interregional marketing distribution of produce for local farmers is one that may just see positive headway reveals Governor of the ECCB Timothy N.J. Antoine.
Antoine revealed that Barbados and Guyana have invested in purchasing a fast ferry; an initiative that will see produce and business move between the regional islands much quicker and constant, rather than waiting for ships to come from Miami.
Another key element to this issue is the price of local produce vs imported canned foods, which is a discussion that must be held between health, agriculture, and finance ministers around the region.

Political Scientist Alex "Pawol” Bruno, is of the view that Dominica's equilibrium is threatened by party political fighting, polarization, and incumbency-driven mendicancy
Political Scientist, Alex "Pawol” Bruno, is of the view that Dominica's equilibrium is threatened by party political fighting, polarization, and incumbency-driven mendicancy. He believes that in order to address current concerns, Dominicans sometimes need to look back. Bruno looked back in an attempt to offer a solution to Dominica's political difficulties and added that an urgent plan is needed to repair the problems.
He stated that Dominica's current issues are built around many years of pent-up aggression against people who have always desired and claimed self-determination, but left decades of severe global economic crises.
Mr. Bruno stated that as a people, we must be aware of the battles we fight, as it appears that some people are fighting against their own goal for self-determination and they ‘embrace’ those who promote reliance and dependency, while we should be fighting for and as one people.
