  1. The government also need to remove the administration in the Nursing Department at SALCC. That administration is one of the main reasons why the nurses are migrating

  2. ABSOLUTELY TRUE, LONG LINES STANDING IN HOT SUN, REDUCED STAFF IN BANKS SO WE CAN WAIT LONGER. AND ALL THE TIME YOU ARE MAKING MONEY OFF OF OF US .
    SHAME ON YOU.

  3. Hero CLP starts from Sept 07. I guess the government remove social distancing and make mask optional just in time for the cricket match. After they have been criticized for the way they handle Carnival.

  4. Hmm. Caribbean Premier League starting, mandates dropped. Yup. Surely about the health. Those branch covidians will still cling on though.

  5. Now that the Covid conspiracy has been exposed, the government had no choice but to reverse the NWO agenda being run in St. Lucia.

    Congratulations to the 70% of us who didn’t believe in the CMO’s lies and made it to the end of the Covid conspiracy unmasked, unmuzzled, unvaccinated and unafraid.

  6. Well people called the talk shows and complained about it. Tourists and returning nationals considered it ridiculous because government had a mask free Carnival. Other caribbean islands have done away with this. I agree by now it should be voluntary.
    To the businesses like the banks, KFC, Western Union that continuously are having customers to stand waiting outside, you people really have a heart. To be treating people like this with no shelter and coming on the media and advertising your business like you all care about customers. Ridiculous and shame on their management team. Poor customer service on y’all part. I guess you all loved controlling people with that kind of slavery mentality.

  7. ok now no mandated distancing boh you managers yall better put tellers in the banks eh next week Bon especially BANK OF SAINT LUCIA

  8. Well I guess the ministry said what’s the point of keeping these protocols when they people are already doing their own thing. Many stores and restaurants had already scrapped the protocol. But this doesn’t mean that we should be stupid about being safe covid is still there and we should follow the guidelines. I for one am not discarding my mask because I got covid already and i know how hard it can be.

  9. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS THANK YOU JESUS now no body in the bank especially the securities that feel they own the bank dont come and tell me nothing. Thank you Andre ‘Pancho’ de Caires for advocating for this in your recent video

    • Boy dem security guards had fun these two years. You took a bunch of powerless people who couldn’t even do the job they get paid to do (stop criminals) and give them jurisdiction over regular people. Sound familiar. I’ll give you a hint..RSL…

      • you know what i hated too? the wardens that used to abuse their authority and harass people if you on the beach by your self with nobody around you telling you that you have to keep your masks on. Where are them now ? especially the robocop shabin that wanted to beat people

  10. Thanks for removing this draconian law from the people of St Lucia and for those travelling to St Lucia. In the NAME OF GOD ALMIGHTY LET ALL THE SHEDDING OF INNOCENCE OF BLOOD STOP ONCE AND FOR ALL, SO THAT THE BLESSING OF GOD ALMIGHTY CAN FALL ON THIS LAND AND THE REST OF THE CARIBBEAN ISLANDS. FOR YOU ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH GOD. THE HEBREW ISRAELITES ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE. ITS YOUR BOOK FROM GOD. GO AND STUDY IT. THE SONS OF ABRAHAM ISAAC AND JACOB WHO WERE SENT INTO SLAVERY. YOUR SLAVERY HAS ENDED. REPENT AND TURN TO YOUR KING OF Kings and LORD of Lords. THIS IS YOUR DESTINY. PLEASE WAKE UP THE GOD OF HEAVEN YOUR FATHER IS CALLING YOU BACK TO HIM. GIVE UP ALL YOUR CRIMES AND START DOING GOOD FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIVES. THIS IS A MESSAGE FROM THE LORD MOST HIGH. REPENT REPENT REPENT BEFORE ITS TOO LATE.

    • They kept it for over a year so they are just as bad. As soon as the new PM in St. Kitts was elected he dropped all this nonsense. They could’ve done the same. Now imagine how many kids will achieve far less in school. And how many small businesses have closed forever. And how many people are now unemployed. We need another Nuremberg Trial. This time all the politicians, doctors, nurses, employers, media personalities and anyone who encouraged this nonsense need to hang. This needs to serve as a lesson for generations to come. Apparently we forget stuff after one generation as what the Nazis did to the Jews was only 70 years ago. This trial needs to go down in the history books so it will never happen again.
