Minister urges ‘responsible behaviour’ during Carnival

Local Government and Culture Minister, Fortuna Belrose, has urged Saint Lucians to display responsible behaviour during carnival activities.

“We have had some good celebrations – the Kiddies Carnival I understood went quite well around the City yesterday and of course, also in Vieux Fort we witnessed some very good performances as well,” Belrose told reporters.

She urged citizens to exercise caution and adhere to the rules of safety.

Belrose highlighted the need to ensure that organisers of carnival activities are aware of what is required when mass crowd events are planned.

“Throughout the course of the year, the training programmes will be designed to assist our various communities that are coming on board, because across the country we have the interest in carnival. But it’s about knowing how to deliver these events,” the minister told reporters at a news conference Monday morning.

She spoke against the backdrop of an incident Sunday afternoon at Vanard in which it was reported that several carnival revellers had to be hospitalised after becoming entangled in a rope that was attached to a moving truck.

“We really just want to empathise  with the families of those persons who were caught in the freak accident,” the minister said.



  1. Minister Belrose, i wish you all the best for your appeal. If you want to deal with those who call themselves BAD? Then bring back the ORC!

  2. Minister, your words will fall on barren soil as long as you sit in Cabinet with the morally depraved Ubaldus. You and a.ll of your Cabinet colleagues are tainted
