Leader of the Concerned Citizens Movement, Loftus Durand, suggests that action is what is now needed in Dominica, the Ground is ripe and fertile for action, because there are many burning justifiable causes
Leader of the Concerned Citizens Movement, Loftus Durand, suggests that whereas some persons may be satisfied with just talking, we need action in Dominica, because the Ground is ripe and fertile for some action, because there are many justifiable causes.
Durand is of the view that too many persons are just content with calling radio programs to vent or complain about their grievances, and not enough persons are willing to come out and take action.
Durand says that we as people have to come to a point where talk is curtailed, and we should move to the next gear.
He says there are persons who are ready for action, especially with the level of abuse being experienced frontline persons on the ground.

UWP Roseau South MP Joshua Francis has dismissed Prime Minister Skerrit’s allegation that Dominicans have been attacking foreign company Montreal Management Consultant EST (MMCE) as a total lie
UWP Roseau South Constituency Parliamentary Representative, Honorable Joshua Francis, has responded to the Prime Minister Skerrit’s allegation that Dominicans had been attacking foreign company Montreal Management Consultant EST (MMCE).
On Q95fm Radio on Wednesday, Honorable Joshua Francis dismissed Prime Minister Skerrit’s allegations as a total lie.
Francis is of the opinion that the allegations are meant as an attempt to distract Dominican’s away from the unaccounted $Billion Dollars from the sales of Dominica’s passports under the DLP Government’s CBI programs.
He also described the relationship between the MMCE and the government of Dominica, which according to the Prime Minister has continued without the execution of an agreement, as irresponsible leadership.
Meantime, Francis has countered claims made by Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit that MMCE has purchased lands in Bellevue for construction of houses for the country.
Francis described Skerrit’s contradiction as a signal for a change of government, and he reminded members of the diaspora of their responsibility to the country.
Francis reiterated the plans for his constituency and laments that while development is apparently occurring elsewhere, the DLP Regime is deliberately doing very little in the Roseau South Constituency.

During his presentation in Parliament, on the 2019/2020 National Budget presented by the DLP Administration on 2nd August 2019, UWP Senator & Candidate for the Roseau Valley Constituency Ronald Charles focused squarely on the lack of investments and innovation for advancing youth interests and the sports industry.
Charles went on to give examples of the projects the sitting Roseau Valley MP, Dr. John Collin McIntyre should have implemented over his 15 years in office, however according to the UWP Senator, nothing sensible or effective was done to significantly enhance youth and sports opportunities within the Roseau Valley district. Charles alluded to the fact that the citizens within the Roseau Valley constituency must put their vote with him, to ensure they receive proper representation.
Meantime, Charles is not impressed with the presentation of the DLP St. Joseph MP Kelver Darroux, on the 2019/2020 national budget in terms of creating innovative opportunities for the youth in Dominica.
Charles shared those views in Parliament during the 2019/2020 national budget debate on 2nd August 2019.

Only people with the intention to undermine democracy in Dominica stoop down to bar politics, says DFP Leader Kent Vital
Leader of the Dominica Freedom Party Kent Vital says attacking the institutions of Good Governance is one of the many strategies being used by persons involved in undermining democracy in Dominica.
Vital says attacks on PAC is one such example. Tactics such as underfunding committees or implanting persons in positions that disrupt the functions of PAC makes it more favourable to the government side.
He says there seems to be a trend where all the good Institutions of the country are being undermined. Vital says Dominica is filled with smart persons with potential, but due to the level of corruption taking place, the country’s public servants are being repressed and hindered.

An alternative water system now appears to be in the cards for the Southern communities of Soufriere who are said to be continuing to make efforts to build resilience following Hurricane Maria.
According to RezDM project manager, Simon Walsh, this new system will provide a back-up water system which is urgently needed, because the current water supply is of great concern.
He says luckily there is a supply of water from an underground spring,
but there is a certain level of anxiety as it pertains to the uncertainties about this hurricane season, and all precautions are being taken.
He added that there is a vision of building a water system on the compound of the new primary school, that could store 15,000 gallons, but if they want real resiliency, they will need a back-up water supply.

CCM Executive Member John Blanchard, says the explanations being given by Prime Minister Skerrit as to the whereabouts of over $1 Billion Dollars of Passport monies from DLP Government CBI Programs, are laughable
Executive Member of the Concerned Citizens Movement (CCM) of Dominica John Blanchard, says numbers don’t lie, and the different explanations being put forward by Prime Minister Skerrit as to the whereabouts of over $1 Billion Dollars of Passport sales monies from the DLP Government’s CBI Programs are laughable, because they do not add up, & makes the Skerrit-led DLP Administration look somewhat comical.
Blanchard says, as have many other persons before him, he has deduced from rational analyses, the inconsistencies with the numbers presented by Prime Minister Skerrit, alongside the statements made to justify those numbers.
Blanchard noted that the real question is, accounting for these monies; Where is the money? And what is the full amount of money in question?
He says one can’t just tell people, look at the houses being built and hotels going up, that’s where the money is, and expect people to accept that. He says a comprehensive report is needed.

Outspoken Pastor Randy Rodney is calling on Dominicans citizens to get serious and move to curb the rise of Physical, Sexual, Verbal, Mental & Emotional abuse, by influential politicians, among others in Society
Outspoken Pastor Randy Rodney is demanding that Dominica’s citizens get serious and move to curb the rise of abuse in Dominica. Many disturbing scandals and affected witnesses have emerged against some influential politicians among others in Dominica, who are allegedly engaged in varying aspects of abuse, to include; Physical, Sexual, Verbal, Mental and Emotional abuse.
Pastor Rodney told Q95 news on Thursday, there is a linkage to the sharp increase in abuse cases in Dominica, in that, the citizenry are losing their moral compass, and have begun to praise and reward individuals for abusing others in Dominica, often because of the financial influence and or family lineages of those in question.
Rodney referenced the disgusting situation of sexual abuse which was reported and occurred after Hurricane Maria in Dominica at various hurricane Shelters, for relief items and money.
He says this new culture developed by Dominicans where nothing seems to be a problem is crazy, and when major national issues arise, the lack of interest shown by the public to resolve and punish those responsible, is disturbing.
Meantime, Rodney says in his entire lifetime, he has never before seen what he is now seeing in Dominica’s governance.
Rodney said there is no reason why Electoral Reform cannot be properly implemented by the Electoral Commission in Dominica.
He added that the Electoral Commission appears to be more concerned about what government officials think about the process, rather than about giving the citizens of the land free and fair elections.
Rodney presents an argument which he says highlights the one-sided hypocrisy in the debate about the need for Electoral Reform, and exposed the flaws in the current process being upheld by the DLP Administration & the Chairman of the Electoral Commission in Dominica.
