  1. Wasn’t it these guys who said they would have tripled everything amount of cash Chas would have given? People lost everything and $200,000.00 to be spent for them.

  2. so u want to go to martinique for medical treatment…was that medical condition caused by the recent flood waters??? go and work and send yuh battacks to martinique off your pocket…how selfish of u to think u deserve our money while those who suffered from the water must not get priority…go and work

  3. What the heck – $200,000 just to take care of the Cat the Dog and Birdie? certainly not person’s properties – I would estimate that Government alone donate $2M; they did vote for them didn’t they?……what a payback, suckers. It wont be long, God is not asleep.

  4. Pierre and King already said they don’t work when it’s rainy season and Min. of Infrastructure were waiting until after the rains to do works to mitigate the effects of inclement weather. Voted in by a landslide. You can’t throw a stone in this country without hitting a dek-dek.

  5. All the reports that I have heard and read states that no lives were lost. Your government may be able to provide some basic needs. However, you can’t expect government to replace your furniture etc etc etc. Thank God for your life be grateful that you were spared and move on in faith. “Rome was not built in a day.”
    I believe that some St. Lucians simply don’t understand the role of government…they are certainly not your personal ATM.

  6. Examine the horns of volontiers,just a reminder of a disaster which affected St-Lucia 🇱🇨, that Martinique and….Send supplies relief.
    News reached that it was only one set of familles and favoritisme that got benifited ❗
