  1. back canal minister more concerned with back canal than the country’s high cemetery count from high crime and high covid deaths… the saying goes. An bas la terre pas knee play zee! Drink, wine your bum bum and have a screw fest while you still young cuz when you ‘re gone you’re GONE!

  2. In the land of the blind , green fig eating , creole learning society .. the one 👁 eye man is King … backward people

    • OK jackals just because you think that you are better than them by eating KFC and McDonald’s does not make you smarter than any of them

  3. Mr. Hilaire, Marigot people are mad over the representation they are getting from you. Up to now Rayneau have not done anything to the road. Other representative doing potholing but nothing from you. Remember 5 years is not forever. The people are planning to plant coconut plants in the road for you.

  4. Is this what Hilaire was elected to do, care more for carnival than what’s going on in the Country? victims are being shot left right and center, a modern hospital is put on halt, unemployment going up, I could go on, but all I see is Hilaire going to Dubai along with R.F. having a good time and St. Lucia suffering; Carnival and a lot of noise and you call that progress. The darkness economically is soon approaching. Instead of jumping up: PRAY.
