  1. So much spent on the elderly whom some of which have children that should be in a position to care for them. Then so little spent on institutions such as care, where most people who attend are young with alot more to live for. Some of these people from the homes already receive pensions, where are those going? Focus on the young MR PM. What’s our plan for economic development in this country? No manufacturing industries being formed. Only reliance on private sector startups from which the public eyes lay in wait to suck up Taxes. No roads being built, Only this one community road which leads from the city center to the far north which is hampered by so much congestion that one has to wonder. Forests taking over the sidewalks, barriers being overgrown by grass. Not a single place in the city to have an executive business lunch. A set of old and dilapidated buildings. Had it not been for investors like Mr Cheriki, this so called city of ours would resemble a wasteland indeed. Theres so much more that could be done. Get investors to come in. Not just to build hotels, but to establish business Headquarters. WE THE PEOPLE OF SAINT LUCIA NEED TO SKYLINE OF CASTRIES TRANSFORMED. GET FOREIGN INVESTORS. DAMMIT GUY(S).

  2. Congratulations to an astute PM, one who is deeply interested in the welfare of all his people. I predict that the people of SLU keep him his government in office for a long time

    • Selwyn, so you really believe that the people will judge a PM on having one fundraiser and distributing the proceeds? So $450,000 for the poor while giving sandals $24 million, Ernst and young millions, fresh start millions, ojo labs millions, pajoau millions, is such a good practice?

  3. Cut the subventions to the blind and hand them a measly $25,000 and we all cheer and call that progress. Chastanet will continue to piss in y’all eyes and call it rain.
