  1. Wasn’t this particular initiative started under the previous administration? Why is the current PM seemingly taking full credit for it and making it look like it was his cabinet’s brainchild? At least acknowledge the efforts of the last set of clowns in getting that initiative off the ground; after all, the clown show is simply continuing but with a new cast of characters.

  2. In that video clip nobody had on a mask. So why do all visitors coming to St. Lucia must have a Covid vaccination card or must have a recent negative Covid test? St. Lucia is the only Caribbean country still doing this. Still to go into the banks and Massy we must wear a mask. Utter nonsense. Its time the government make mask wearing voluntary.

  3. i hope its not expensive cause thats what kills the local business and it would be nice to have a factory that local juices as well that are in season especially mangoes you dont see the amount of mangoes wasted on the road sides sometimes or on estates?

  4. Congratulations! Please more of this….. planting jobs, clearing,, watering, seeding jobs threw agriculture please bring this to VF, Dennery, Marigot, up North, BTC,
