CEO and Owner of WICE Q95 FM Radio Sheridan Gregoire (Mr G) calls for the eradication of mendicancy and dependency on political handouts in Dominica and questions the need to hire Sir Dennis Byron as a Consultant to advance Electoral Reform in Dominica, as well as the failure to include Campaign Finance Reform in the terms of reference given to Sir Byron.
Mr G confirms that recent documents reveal that Sir Dennis Byron will be paid approximately some EC $500,000 dollars for that consultancy.
