    He should save addressing us. Better for him to ask the perpetrators themselves to kill the storm. We all know that DARPA via its weather warfare programs are behind this. So all he has to do is to get down on his knees and take it deep for the team and ask them to stop. We give in. We’ll do what they want, save giving homosexuals the right to marry our men.

    From the diaspora we want our people to listen to the authorities and take the proper steps to protect themselves and families, the weather persons bring the weather report often enough so don’t ignore the warnings remember what happened with Erika. We are concern because many of us have families at home so we a listening too.
    We hope that the PM will not leave the people at this time because whenever bad weather is heading to Dominica he leaves the Island so lets keep watching..
    PM would you really leave the people during terrible weather season to come up to Toronto to party with a group that is dividing the Dominican Community here, I hope not . Dominicans be safe.
