  1. Independent? independent of what? We St. Lucians were, are, and for ever will be dependent on the generosity of first world people. Charity, tourism. Face it we independent of NOTHING. When the brit’s policed us we no have no out of control murder rate. Damn you Compton and you ill conceived independence plan.

    • Who dis “we” you talking ’bout, Canadian Superstar? You buy your citizenship? Your hate-on for Lucia and Lucians in all your comments is so thinly disguise you might well tatoo a note on your forehead saying: here for their destruction.

  2. There’s some people that think the st.lucian house on church and 49 st belongs to them . They make it very difficult for we st.lucoans to hold an event at the house . Too much politics and ignorance. We all know the culprits over there .
