    As a Canadian that has travel to the Caribbean I believe that immigration should not be as strict as they are now. Lets just keep criminals and terrorist and allow hard working people to come to our country.

    Please Mr.Larocque we do not need visa restrictions. There are too little of us remaining in Dominica for that level of control.
