  1. Hmmmmm hurry up and plant our food security is again on the line with that new and deadly Covid that’s on the rise and moving fast. The media on this rock is too country and don’t cover certain things that will affect us. PJP the alram is going off pay attention do not follow in the footsteps of Allan Michael Chastanet , be better prepared as far as our food security, our Covid supplies, and reddiness remember Highgrade said it.

  2. Food security is important. But good healthy food MORE IMPORTANT. Let’s stop with all.the chemicals in growing our food. Using spray everything now with round up. It causes death not health. Time for a change.

  3. @ Isadora, stop lamenting about stop this and stop that proposed something as well so that if a farmer or nay of his family members read they can learn. We need to put immense pressure on our leaders because when they wanted our votes they comes with the promises, buy you two bakes and a salt fish then turn their backs. often we hear there is no money that becomes a government culture now. We are spending 100’s a millions of dollars to served a population of 180k yet we are unable to have services that will attract more investors and reduce cost of living for its nation instead it is going opposite direction. We buy into the politician’s narrative and some just not to change but their clothing. I saw the Gros Islet rep for the cricket he become so innocent but to meet with him to discuss pertinent issues with regards to his constituent is to call his officer after CPL. Who these clowns will fool? We won’t be able to reduce cost of living until we Lucians start to take drastic action. We fail to form unity hence the abuse of power. We only like see to be seen eating from a can shopping at shopping mall and only use chemical to dance the yard soil which can very well put food on your table if you put the effort. Once when i ask a chicken supplier in Miami for a quote of chicken backs i was so embarrassed when he replied but who eat backs. Its not that eating backs is bad but it also expose how low we will go to facility companies to create employment and we chastised our own. Science will not be able to decode St. Lucian tragedies.
