Pierre Wants Less Bitterness And Discord In Saint Lucia

spot_img

Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre desires less bitterness and discord in Saint Lucia and has spoken out against hatred, venom, and anger.

In a Facebook video, the Prime Minister said he wanted to see a country where people can live together in harmony despite differences.

“Anger is a destructive force that seeks to divide and promote fear. Hatred and anger threaten the stability of our democracy and peace-loving society. Differences need not lead to vitriolic disputes. Peace must always prevail,” a written message accompanying the video said.

Pierre said in the video that he wants to leave a more equitable country where meritocracy rules.

“A country where every man and woman, every boy and girl, will love Saint Lucia. Saint Lucia belongs to them,” Pierre asserted.

In addition, the Prime Minister highlighted the need to ensure that everyone believes they can contribute.

  1. Another set of words which does not reflect the speakers actions. There will NEVER be such when u in opposition welcome public servants undermining the govt and leaking out confidential info and then reward these ppl with higher posts in the public service cause persons contract of unemployment to not be renewed because they not YES – YES individuals and create posts for your friends. U and your govt, public service commission, teaching service commission and PSs treat All workers equally. Stop rewarding wives and women of your buddies with top posts in govt. Not a single ministry is performing well.
    Our Infrastructure – not good
    Education is a struggle
    Sports- most of our fields are ghost towns, just pass Marchand
    Agricuture – Every month the minister himself eludes to issues
    Commerce – always a shortage
    Finance- allu always saying all u eh hv money
    Economic Dev. – check unemploymnet stats andinflation
    Need I go on. Let’s not even talk about Housing – Bough themselves a house to gv a friend money and then disrupt ppl lives including school children to hv a fete. SMH

  2. It starts with the politicians, they should be examples yet they are not, they promote division among their constituents and other people. Stop the biasness and treat people equally. Lead by example. Let your words be your bond. Respect others opinion even though you don’t agree with it. Stop hating people because they share their opinion even if it’s not in your favour. Stop looking at st.luvia as a slp or uwp country. After election work as a team for the betterment of the country. If slp is in power and a uwp can help contribute in a meaningful way let them and stop thinking that they shouldn’t because the person is uwp. Learn to show love to others and not hatred or jealousy. Again please lead by example. Peace and love

  3. IT STARTS WITH YOU, STOP YOUR LIES SPEAK THE TRUTH HELP LUCIANS NOT FORIGNERS YOU ARE A BAD EXAMPLE. YOU HAVE TO CHANGE OR GO.

  4. ST LUCIA IS BEYOUND HELP, THE CRIME RATE IS GETTING HIGHER, BODIES WITHOUT HEADS WHAT NONSENSE IS THAT, FRUSTRATION IN THE LAND NO HEADWAY SOME WHILE SOME LAVISH IN THEIR BEAUTIFUL HOMES, TRAVEL AND SHOPPING, EVERYONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO REEP THE GOOD BENIFITS , SOME OF US DONT EAT FOR DAYS, SOME OF US HAVE MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES AND DONT GET HELP. WHEN WE VOTE IS SO WE CAN HAVE CHANGE FOR THE GOOD NOT WHAT WE HAVE GOING ON . SO KEEP YOUR SORRY STORY.

  5. Well, these are nice words to say, but the level of victimization is alarming. It’s the same or even worst than the last set. The only thing is that the last set did not know who their enemies were (SLP Sou cersss). It can never change that’s who they are. But then again we like it so, we voted for that.

  6. It starts will all of you in St. Lucia – you guys have to learn to agree to disagree. Some of you don’t speak to your own family members because of their political affiliation and are going after each other without ceasing – make that make sense. Every one is entitled to his or her own political affiliation and as such should be respective accordingly – I am grateful that I am not so consumed political parties.

  7. Since 1997, our country has faced serious challenges under the SLP leadership. In 1996, the homicide rate was just around 8 per year, but by 2002, it had surged to 40 per year, a staggering 400% increase. The Debt to GDP Ratio also skyrocketed during this time, with little benefit to the country. The SLP government has been in power for 4 out of the last 6 terms and shares responsibility for these issues due to their failed policies. You can verify these facts with a quick online search for “macrotrends Saint Lucia murder rate chart.” It’s time to get informed and take action. Let’s rally and urge our government representatives to do better, embracing proven strategies that can steer us toward a brighter future.

  8. Here is the interesting thing many people don’t realise. Politicians must cause controversy whether they are in power or not because they have to demonstrate to the electorate that the government or the opposition is not fit for purpose otherwise, if it’s all nice and dandy and both parties are cushy cushy, who is going to vote out a decent party for another decent party?…so in essence they must sling dirt at each other to bamboozle you the electorate…and if you giddy enough you would vote for the party the just rag dolled you…but by the time you gain you senses and limber up, it would have been too late….you would have voted for the party that would squeeze your juices dry…so they will conjure up all manner of soupçon and soup con to cause you the electorate to vote against the other party….now there will always be party harks..die hard supporters that will vote for their party even if their party burn the country down to the ground…and then there is the swing voter…it is you whom the party want to sway to their side…now PM Pierre is only 2 years into his Premiership and so he can call for unity and peace…and rightly so….that’s is the PM’s job….but a day is a long time in politics and a sound byte is just a passing wind..wait till the next fracas break out between the two main parties….

  9. Hear da man, gasu allu slp ministers that brought that bitterness in the country allu have a personal vendetta against Chas and many of allu supporters following doing the same

  10. Put a leash and muzzle on your rabid mongrel that attacks citizens from that pedestal you put him on. Control your other accolytes with their poisonous, hate filled tongues. Also stop the blatant racism in your party.

  11. PJP has the gall to say such things: love your neighbour as yourselves, when THEY do not lead by example.
    1. Showing disrespect for the house of parliament members (even I put these words in lower caps).;.
    2. Lambasting opposition members for pettiness, like the colour of their skin, or who/where their families are from.
    3. Spreading biases among the general populace where their political ties lay (the gall!!).
    4. BOTH political parties really should put their differences aside, and come together for a unified country which they seperated by “party politics”.

    And so …. even the UWP has stooped so low (J.C. & G.M. must be turning in their graves) as to also fling mud at the SLP. All this nonsense must stop. From all this “maypwee”, gangs are formed (not just for drug turf).

    PJP – you can swallow your words, and your mischievousness, and call a truce – offer the olive branch – to the UWP to WORK TOGETHER to bring about a better Saint Lucia. Swallow you alls pride to produce a better nation of people. LEAD BY EXAMPLE.

    We, the Saint Lucian people, are fed up with the parliament antics, empty talks, bad manners, and the “daykalitay” politics which you all exude.

  12. Lead by example. I had faith that you would have changed things and voted SLP because I wanted to see a change.

    At heart, I think you espouse values of caring, humbleness all of which augurs well for good stewardship of the country BUT then you brought in “Can I Help Me” into your Cabinet and it has been downhill from there. Never have I seen it this bad in our political landscape. Even loyal SLP supporters are being victimized because they express disagreement on a policy level and you PJP do nothing! This in itself is an indictment of your leadership. Your party has been hijacked by one person. I cannot recognize this version of SLP currently on display!

  13. Put your words into action, Sir. Pen a Paliamentary code of ethics and have both you and the opposition leader sign. Hold your Ministers to this standard. The Opposition to also do the same. This is my expectation. Not useless talk that we both know is just that.

  14. Mr. PM, the most prominent initiator of hatred in the country, sits next to you at weekly cabinet meetings.

  15. The disfunction in Parliament have given rise to an equal disfunction in the Country. When I saw the way the Speaker treated the leader of the opposition, treating an ex P.M. as a school boy, the first thing which came to my mind was, RACISM; you Mr. P.M. sat there, enjoyed the Soap Opera, said nothing, but the Law Courts put an end to that. Your silence was like stoking firewood into the fire. Furthermore how dare you inviting that pit bull into your cabinet? he, the speaker and others should longtime be demoted, but again what do you know. Racism has no place anywhere on an Island that depends solely on white tourists.

  16. @C-WIZ … I tried to read y9ur comments, but too much confusion, and not much sense in the “psychology” of your expressions. Made no sense to me.

  17. Poor jab Mr Pierre. He just walked blindly into a revolving door – going around and around, not knowing where or when to stop.

  18. @Oh Really, that’s all you have to say? Every topic you copying and pasting the same massage. No one reading that shit no more people just glancing past that.

  19. Re Article..I think the PM should focus more on establishing a fair living wage system not less than $10+ minimum wage and get rid of the slave wages.. Asap and stop the show and ignoring the people of St Lucia..
    I endorse my thoughts and observations..
