SLP group calls on Allan Chastanet to clarify policy on local access to beaches
Chastanet
Chastanet was a former minister of tourism

The St. Lucia Labour Party Soufriere Constituency Group (SLPCG) is seeking answers from former minister of tourism Allan Chastanet with regards to his policy on local access to the nation’s beaches.

In a press release, the SLPCG said its concerns are as a result of a number of incidents which were said to have occurred while the United Workers Party was in office.

“In one such incident, Mr. Chastanet expressed the view that placing huge boulders on the beach to prevent locals from accessing a particular beach in the north, was justified,” the release said.

“In another Mr. Chastanet unilaterally (and against the instructions of Cabinet) offered portions of the Queen’s chain for sale to a hotelier in Soufriere. The sale went through and sale of that portion of the Queen’s chain has the effect of denying local St. Lucians, especially the people of Soufriere, access to that beach,” the release stated.

The release also called on former minister for physical development Richard Frederick, under whose portfolio the Queen’s chain fell, to clarify that issue.

  1. Dear harry my post was written in a hurry, and you prove me right st.lucians are far too eager to insult each other, you don't see the same thing the UWP did to Kenny is the same thing the SLP is doing to Allen, smh, the uwp tried to make sure that st. lucians hate Kenny Anthony so much that he would never be the prime minister again because he certainly wasn't going to give up the leadership of the SLP, and yes Kenny Anthony is the leader of the SLP which means he must've penned this press release himself, all in all this press release should've just been ignored because this is a non issue, and for the record I had no idea my post was going to be graded and marked.........

  2. Mr.Ur Pusha,
    Why call the people idiots,when your writing {spelling,grammar,punctuation,sentence construction}shows such great deficiency in LANGUAGE ARTS.Grade three proficiency perhaps.
    Anyway,it is so sad that you are unable to recognise the obvious link between a political leader and his party branches.

  8. What a ridiculus press release.
    If there are boulders on the beach get your slp government to order their removal.
    Now,please tell us whether the Sixth Sense Resort includes a private beach as reported in a british newspaper.
    Also, how soon can we expect a statement from Mr.Dalson's lawyer with regards to the cheque he alledgely recieved from the town council.

  10. Why is the SLP acting like they're still campaigning? Elections are over, they've won! Stop trying to pull blinders over St. Lucian's eyes and take care of the problems that are there! We realised there were problems that's why we voted you in. Stop blaming the UWP and get on with the job that we the people voted you in to do!

  12. Once again I say STOP SELL OUR ISLAND. There is enough hotels etc. on the Island, and, most of them are not staying at full occupancy. Encourage the youth to work, farming, (bees, bananas, lime and the list goes on and on). Then there is the computer age, education, education, education.

  16. So only now Kenny cares about authority? Going above the GG's head and selling our sea bed was nothing short of treason, and calls for public flogging at Derrek Walcott square, at high noon. I mean, can we say hypocrisy to the max? I think Kenny should move back to the Republic of Trinidad & Tobago after his term in office...Her Majesty does not reign there. I really do think that the man hates the Queen.
    Anyway, I don't trust Allen either, I think he's too much on the business side of things, kinda like a Mitt Romney thingy, but I think he needs a chance to show his true colours. If he wants to serve his country of birth, then he needs to show his worthiness and let the people decide.

  17. Mr. Allan Chastanet has the authority to sell portions of the Queen's Chain? I never heard of such thing. Does he own the Queen's chain? Clarification is needed for sure.

  18. EDITED COMMENT: It is clear that the SLP fears the ascention of Allen Chastanet to the helm of the UWP. Their strategy is to throw mud and hope that it sticks. Why don’t they ask the Prime Minister to address the Grynberg scandal through which we currently have no access to our seabed. WHICH IS THE BIGGER CONCERN?

    • And just for that, I think Allen should be leader...level the playing field and lets watch a good fight, my popcorn is ready.
      SLP has always been the better party for ALL the people, but Kenny perverted it and it will take a long time to bounce back...but then again, this is Saint Lucia, so anything can happen.
