Government ready to get international airport project “off the ground” says PM Skerrit

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said his government is ready to get the international airport project “off the ground.”

He made the announcement while speaking on his weekly ‘Anou Pale’ talk show on Sunday.

“Your Dominica Labour Party government is ready to get the international airport off the ground,” he said. “In the past year we settled on a site in Wesley and acquired property through careful negotiations with land and property owners in the area.”

Skerrit continued, “We also created the International Airport Development Company with a fully appointed board of Directors.”

He said the government will officially sign an agreement with Montreal Management Consultant Establishment to begin the construction of the international airport.

The Prime Minister further assured his commitment to this project saying that he is convinced that it will open so many new avenues of economic opportunity for Dominica.

“Various sectors including tourism and agriculture will be significantly enhanced,” he indicated.

Meanwhile, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the International Airport Development Company, Samuel Johnson who was a guest on the talk show said the design process which is ongoing  is focused on all aspects of the airport, “both on the airside infrastructure and landside infrastructure and that includes everything on the airside.”

This he said includes;  the airport buildings, terminal building and apron, the aircraft rescue and firefighting buildings, air traffic control tower, airfield lighting, parking facilities, utilities , drainage, health facilities and quarantine facilities to name a few.

“It’s something I have heard in several meetings. We are not designing and developing an airport for next year or the next 5 years, we are building out for the next 20, 30, 40 or even 50 years,” Johnson noted.

    Roosevelt the reason you are talking about International Airport at this time is simple to take your foolish supporters’ mind off the scandal in which you find yourself, and the controversy played out in Dominica reference to your and Gaston Brown corrupted affair!
    I will take time to inform you of your lying game you intend to play by telling people it your intention to place plaque at airport reconging indiginous Carib Indians who inhabited Wesley befor black people.
    Any historian yo charter to surport your lie, will not work!

    No Carib Indian lived in any hole at “Marigot Bay;” the hole in question was dug by the fry, and sprats as a place of changing; standing in that hole and there is the occurrence of heavy seas, I seen the hole filled to capacity, so this lie that you are perpetrating will not work.

    Do some research, on John Wesley, and the village of Wesley; the Londonderry Estate, the truth will be found.

      I can tell you right now before the British came the Carib Indians occupied Portsmouth; when they wanted to Establish their military base at the Cabrit, they created the Carib Reservation, and forced the Carib Indians from Portsmouth onto the reservation to this day!

      Boy, I am part Carib, since my grandmother, mother came from the Carib Reservation to Wesley; my roots are in Cinaku (that’s not spelled correctly.

      You don’t know what the hell you are talking about, and the people who told you that lie, simply want some money from you that is what it is all about.

      Wesley and Marigot villages were industrialized.

      From Marigot to Woodford Hill along the bay, old remains of Micnanical Crain’s and, Winches are still there; that is important, not the lie about Carib lived in a hole at Marigot bay in Wesley!

        “my roots are in Cinaku (that’s not spelled correctly.”

        The word should spell like this: “Sinekou.” So,  the shade of black is the color of my skin; but my roots are in Sinekou, so this crap Roosevelt talking about Carib Indian lived in hole in Marigot Bay in Wesley is a damn lie:

        Mimi John Wesley; use  that name to begin the research and stop talking fart about about what you all do not know.

        Any so called historian come talking fart about Carib Indian lived in hole in Wesley will only tell some incredible lie!

      If the Chinese build it it will have a dual military and civilian purpose and will be used mainly for their military after they bulldoze down some of the most beautiful area of the island. It will be a military base disguised as a civilian airport. They will not spend millions on an airport unless there is something in it for them and yours truly the minister of finance will gladly help them so he can get his share of the funds for his bank account.

        Anybody who suggest all we need is to improve Melville Airport by bringing more LIAT, Caribbean Airline; Humming Bird, and a thousand more aircraft which does not fly internationally, must be a fool!
        For more than sixty years we hear the same nonsensical rubbish talk; from ignorant people, people who fail to see that every island in the Caribbean successfully operates International Airports, non has failed thus far, nevertheless, where it pertains to Dominica, it is not good; it will fail because some idiotic none educated people say so; they conceive  such crap in their mind. The only thing I don’t like about it is the destruction of Wesley to facilitate it; whereas there is a location selected by the UWP which is the most appropriate…

      But you are very ignorant, and backward, and if I may say you are far exceeds ignorance and backwardness!
      What makes you believe the situation, in Srilanka  will be the same in Dominica?
      It is your ignorant kind who had so much to say when Edison was building the International Airport which caused the same labor party to shut down the project when the UWP lost the election.

      The majority of us Dominicans are stupid people; we are just about the level of fools.
      About the time when Douglas (Roosevelt) and Roosevelt Skerrit, Athie Martin and the others shout down the project that was in progress, they reference St. Lucia International Airport where the said the government of St. Lucia had to subsidize the flights to get people to fly into St. Lucia.
      Today St. Lucia has one of the most effective tourist industry in the Caribbean!
      Roosevelt Skerrit brought Gonzales to Dominica to tell people like you that Dominica do not need an International Airport.

        While Gonzales was making a fool out of people like, in your country, work was on the way in the building of an International Airport in St. Vincent; name Argyle International, operating for a number of years now!

        In recent days I read where the rest of the world has termed Dominica Airport a primitive airport, and that is in reference to long distant private Jet which landed there they claim to take the fugitive back to India!

        Be reminded, Gonzales threw it in Roosevelt face by saying; “St. Vincent Passports are not for sale.” We don’t hear any controversy about St. Lucia selling their passports.

        And to conclude numerous international flights fly into and out of both St. Lucia, and St. Vincent. I am not a Roosevelt supporter, but your LOL is on you; the joke is on your stupidity and not Roosevelt Skerrit this time; because if he succeeds in Building an International Airport in the country, that will be a plus for tourism in Dominica.

    Or are they just wicked?
    These people criticize every and anything that happens or take place in the country. They always know what the country needs best. What must be done or should not .
    Interestingly, when their demands are met they sing a different song. They have been contemplating about an International Airport for ages. Now one is being built they have so much negative things to say; even with the intention to stop it from being built. What is really wrong with those Useless Wicked People?

    +Don’t know whether this company has built as much as a fowl house

    Giving the biggest infrastructural investment in the history of Dominica in to this company is analogous to putting a janitor in command of a spacecraft to dock on the intention space station. Imagine the consequences.

    Considering all these facilities and more are being designed for the airport and considering that the relevant metrological studies, economic impact studies, environmental impact studies including noise and air pollution studies among others have been undertaken, and the results of the studies are positive. The monies from the sale of Dominican passports through the CBI Program is available through alleged CBI passport agent and airport developer Montreal Management Consultant Establishment (MMCE) then I have no reason to believe that the airport will not be built.

    The airport will be built. Hopefully!

We must open our eyes and see what is happening. Every passport money that passes thru MMCE, passes thru this partnership, every dollar spent on housing revolution passes thru this partnership, and now the biggest one yet, the airport will pass thru this partnership.

    No funds from treasury, no funds from tax payers then it is not built by Dominica. No input from Dominicans then it is not built for Dominicans. If it is built by labour party then it seems the labour party has more revenue than the state? MMC seems to be the national bank of the labour party doing as it pleases with the front loading of funds for projects. The labour party should be paying back. Roosvelt the tax payers and the Treasury eventually pays for any project done on behalf of the country. CBI is not you private funds neither does it belong to MMC. You will pay for this one day.

    To “Wag the the Dog” means to purposely divert attention from what would otherwise be of greater attention, or the headline news. In Dominica this week the buzz is about an Indian guy named Mehul Choksi. One read just yesterday, with great deal of amusement, that a Prime Minister of a neighboring Eastern Caribbean State explained Choksi”s presence in Dominica by saying he had travelled there to have a dinner with his girlfriend. There remains unanswered questions about this saga. And then as if by magic, the international airport talk is back in the news. One wonders, Is the Honourable PM trying to wag the dog?

    There are supply disruptions that have spiked prices of constructions materials and services over 200% in some cases – this means the cost for building an international airport will be significantly higher. I am not sure how we make decisions but at minimum we need to realize we are part of a global economy and as such our decisions need to take into consideration what’s hapening globally.

    Before one shovel of soil can be excavated to construct an airport there must be drawings, plans, soil testing and studies, cost and duration of construction, etcetera. The Dominican people have no clue of these things that should be in the public domain.

    Only in Dominica a corrupt government can do this, invest hundreds of millions of dollars belonging to the citizens and they (public) remain silently unperturbed. This public silence would only embolden Mr. Skerrit to treat Dominicans with utter disrespect and disdain.

    SILEENCE gives consent and the silence of the vast majority of the Dominican people strengthens Skierrit’s resolve to use Dominica Like his personal property.

    I did my research on MMCE as I usually do on most things so that I will be well informed before I expound on any topic.

    MMCE has no previous experience in building airports. It’s NOT a Canadian company but was formed in the UAE ( United Arab Emirates ). In fact, this company mostly deals with immigration issues concerning (CBI). Citizen By Investment. It ‘s nothing short of MADNESS to put the biggest and most expensive infrastructural investment of a country in the hands of an unknown entity in the construction business.

    Look at the pattern of Mr. Skerrit. EVERYTIME there is a scandalous issue dogging the ruling maladministration, Skerrit comes up with a monumental announcement solely to distract. This announcement about the official signing of a contract between the Dominica government and MMCE is to distract the people’s attention from the Choksi’s FIASCO. No doubt about it.

      See the college scandal couple weeks ago-forgotten. The Bus driver uproar-Forgotten. The Madueke saga-Forgotten, The Ali-Reza Monfared soup-Forgotten, The missing Billions-Forgotten. The 64, 000 Rent-Forgotten.
      Soon Skerrit will run out of people to fool in that country, or he’ll just fly somewhere with his Wife and American Children and leave them in their me$; YES it missing an ($), because the money soon run out. How many Passports you all really think needs to be sold to buy all that land and build an int’l Airport? #sorrynotsorry!! smfh!

      You know why!? Because you give the local companies 5 WEEKS to start and finish something for you, they end up taking 5 MONTHS. In the end, They still come back and tell you money finish and the job is still not completed.

        Ok, so what about other regional companies who are competent? BY LAW, NATIONAL PROJECTS OF PUBLIC INTEREST MUST BE TENDORED. Are you a grown up? How much do you know about these sorts of things? I advise that you use your phone or computer to research and read the public procurement and disposal of property bill thoroughly.

        Otherwise, you are …….. …. trying to involve yourself in grown people’s conversations.
