  2. Everyone seem to be focused on the hospital VH for its quick response..ok applaud bravo!! But pkease do not divert this and lets consider the facts..1. Families are mourning deaths sick injured loved ones..first of all Rayneau Gajadhar SHOULD NOT have had those explosives right there in the quarry..as i know too well these should have been under police care..Mr Gajadhar should be sued for this..but i guess the "governments" wont discuss or the media wont touch this as he is owed millions of dollars by both governments!! Bullshitt!! Rayneau is a demon..and this misfortune was just another blood sacrifice by him!! I do hope the families get some serious lawyers to sue Rayneau!! Nonsense.

    • Well said.. NO ONE WILL COME OUT AND SAY PLAIN BLANK RAYNEAU GAJADHAR SHOULD BE LOCKED UP. BECAUSE HE HAVE MONEY PEOPLE JUST WILL SHUT UP THEIR MOUTH. HE WILL NOT BE SUED. HE WILL JUST GIVE THE FAMILIES WHAT HE FEEL HE WANT TO GIVE THEM AND SQUASH THAT. BUT, THE GOVERMENT SHOULD GET INVOLVED AND PROSECUTE HIM FOR NEGLIGENCE AND VIOLATION OF THE EXPLOSIVE ACT. YEA, BUT WHEN YOU SAY ANYTHING PEOPLE SHUTTING YOU UP. OH SHUT UP IT WAS AN ACCIDENT. THAT WAS NOT AN ACCIDENT THIS HAPPEN THROUGH NEGLIGENCE.. THOSE EXPLOSIVE MATERIAL SHOULD BE STORED IN THE PROPER WAY. NOW PEOPLE ARE DEAD THAT IS WHEN THIS WILL CHANGE.. THOSE PEOPLE ARE ALREADY DEAD AND THERE NEED TO BE JUSTICE FOR THOSE VICTIMS OF THE HORRIBLE ACCIDENT..

Alvina Reynolds and Stephenson king made the biggest promises by giving date and time of completion. Uwp criticized SLP for that stadium back n forth , now that very same stadium is standing tall housing our sick n shutting . Guy Joseph requested audit which was a waste of time and money. Nobody will be held responsible.

  4. Lamina, La meynard, La menard so which one is the correct spelling.
    Everyday SAD BUT TRUE has something to say about the prime minister's birth country is Martinique and is also asking him to go back to his birth country. I was waiting to see if he would commend the prime minister on his quick effort to call the hospital in Martinique to assist the victims of the disaster that happened on Tuesday. But oh no shim (I say shim cause I don't know shim gender) can't stomach the thought of giving to one what is due to him/her. The good that the prime minister did turned his stimach

    • The correct name of the medical institution is CHU Pierre Zobda Quitman (its a University Hospital)

  5. Kudoos to Martinique!! Shame on the level of disaster readiness of St. Lucia to care for its people. How long will health care be put on the back burner? This should shine light on the deficiency of the St.Lucia in caring for victims. Despite what has been reported as a good job, its simply not good enough? the southern hospital and others should be equipped and ready to attend to those situations. Heaven forbid, what is it were a catastrophe of similar magnitude in the south, would the victims be placed in the "stadium"? After so many years, why is it that we still as a sovereign nation must cross waters to get emergency medical attention? Hope the idiot who's be calling for audits gets his head out of his @$% and makes health a priority!!!!!!

    • The problem with St. Lucia is that we set the standard very very very low. And even that we are too lazy to try to attain. We used to accepting nonsense and that won't change. It's ingrained in us and there aren't enough with a different mindset to effect change.
