Saint Lucians in UK question PM and Ministers

Hundreds of Saint Lucians living in the UK took the opportunity and came from far and wide to meet with Prime Minister Allen Chastanet during his trip to London this week.

 On Saturday January 21, 2016, it was a packed room at an event organized by new Saint Lucia High Commissioner to London,  Guy Mayers.

The audience, made up  of Saint Lucians living in the United Kingdom, got a chance to put questions to Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet,  about a variety of issues including investment, development, tourism, crime and the economy.

Members of the Saint Lucian Diaspora came to meet the ministers and ask questions

 Joining the Prime Minister at the meet and greet session were Dr Gale Rigobert, Minister for Education, Innovation, Gender Relations and Sustainable Development and Guy Joseph, Minister for Economic Development, Housing, Urban Renewal, Transport and Civil Aviation who also took questions.

 Before the open floor part of the meeting, the Prime Minister addressed the audience to give them an overview of his government’s plans for 2017 and beyond.

After the session, Chastanet, Rigobert and Joseph mingled with the crowd and spoke to some members of the audience one on one.

    I believe this forum should have been used for better comments than what is read. I am very disappointed that we choose to bash each other than elevate each other. I live outside of St. Lucia and do not believe I am a lesser St. Lucian. As much as we have left the shores for better opportunities St. Lucia is still ours. My dad left over 50 years ago but he still visits and enjoy the island he calls home. Let us see the good in each other and encourage others to be positive and remain enlightened. St. Lucia for all St. Lucians…. brotherly love.
