Seventeen new homes being built in Canefield East – PM Skerrit

Seventeen (17) homes are currently being constructed in Canefield East as part of the government’s housing initiative.

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit made the announcement during a site visit in Canefield East on Wednesday.

“We are in Canefield East; we are building some 17 homes,” he said. “The intention there is to certainly increase the numbers in a dramatic way.”

Skerrit continued, “As we [go] along, we will be having some internal discussions with the Ministry for Housing and the Parl Rep [Parliamentary Representative] for Canefield.’

He said further that there will be a  playing field, basketball court, and a community centre.

“If you are going to have so many people here you must have the supporting services,” Skerrit stated.

He indicated that there is a massive demand for housing in the Mahaut constituency.

“We are looking at several locations, we are looking to acquire some lands in Checkhall, government has lands in Warner that we will also be building homes for Campbell and residents of Mahaut in particular and we will see commencement of this very soon,” Skerrit noted.

Meanwhile, the Prime Minister revealed that his government is building 44 homes for the residents of Dubique and 62 for Grandbay residents.

“They are all resilient homes. All the electrical lines and telephone lines will be underground as part of the government’s resilient building,” he said.

Other areas earmarked for housing development include Scottshead, Paix bouche, Woodfordhill, Portsmouth, Vieille Case, Penville, Canefield East, and Trafalgar, among others.

“We have seen quite a number of housing interventions across Dominica and this is just part of our partnership with Montreal Management Consultants Est. (MMCE),” Skerrrit noted. “As we speak, about 162 homes are under construction under this component, “on top of the homes that we have already handed over to residents.”

    Guy you are a wast of time; if you call what you read an English class, you exposed yourself to the fact you perhaps only finished elementary school. I challenge boy, to refute anything you read in that brief ethology.

    You do not have a clue of anything I conveyed?
    You spoke some crap about I living in a claustrophobic, situation, using words you don’t even know the meaning; you claim your daughter have a degree in psychology, so suppose the words you are printing drive from some book!
    Nevertheless, if you consider what you read above to be an English class anybody who have psychology as a first year psychology major know that you don’t understand squat of what you read.
    You keep talking fart about ED “Erectile dysfunction” that is your problem, not mine I am still very functional, I sure you have Viagra sticking out of your ear.
    What comes out of the mouth is in the heart.
    Play smart, but I am sure I am not the only one who knows you did not have plenty of scholastic’s.

      The more you talk ds, is the more I am discovering that you are shallow, if you live in America, be informed that people have the opportunity to go to school at any age!
      If you did not finish elementary, you can still take elementary class, the same as secondary, and then major in something in college.
      As dunce as I discover you are, start in a community two year college, if you graduate in two years you should have enough credits to move to a four year college, and perhaps university depending on how ambitious you are.

      But coming on DNO talking fart thinking you are insulting me; while supporting thievery and corruption in Dominica will not help you one bit!
      You are wasting your time kissing Roosevelt Butt; groveling like a yard foul at his feet, while he has billions of dollars in banks.

      Are you in a right frame of mind guy?
      How many “dozens of dollars” you have in a bank ds, compared to the billions a certain thief corrupted crook a damn thief has?
      You are sick!

    I am trying to get this to the top ds, so you can see it!

    Devils son (ds) don’t temp fate, because there is no question in my mind that I know more about psychology than you: I’ve even had abnormal psychology, so ask your daughter what I mean by that. In any event here is a brief ethology, on the subject!

    Social anxiety disorder is a DSM-V psychiatric condition characterized by an intense fear of social situations and scrutiny—patients suffering from claustrophobia display a great fear and anxiety of closed spaces. The belief with a social anxiety disorder is that the frontal regions of the brain are unable to downregulate amygdalar hyper-activation. The same disruptions in the amygdala-frontal network in social anxiety disorder is attributable to claustrophobia.

    A meta-analysis of functional brain imaging in specific phobias showed the activated regions of the brain to phobic stimuli were globus pallidus, amygdala, and left insula.

      Con:
      ds, you are the one who open yourself when you suggest I claustrophobic; whenyou do not know what you are talking about!
      Now: there are two phenomena associated with innate pathological fear, fear sensitization and failure of fear habituation.
      The amygdala has a decreased threshold activity and decreased potentiation of activity in fear sensitization. Research suggests a dysfunction in the learning-independent fear circuit, which drives defensive behavior without prior learning, in nonexperiential phobias.
      Habituation is the reduced emotional reaction of a person to repeated stimuli. In fear habituation, the amygdala has decreased habituation. Now since you say your daughter have a degree in psychology, tell her I say if she understands anything in my brief ethology explain it to you because I know you are dumb to such level of education.
      I had to take a series of psychological subjects before I could be accepted in medical school; got more medical knowledge your kid.

      I am not a teenager nor a derelect old fart but just FYI, I grew up around Mal and man like Michael and Peltier Esprit his cousins. You might be too young to know Peltier but when you run into man like Tinko, Jim, Solo, Rulah (aka. Short Breed) or even Malcolm Reid ask them about Mal and Wes Esprit. Also ask about their cousin Boeboe and then come join the decent conversation. But I will leave that for another day. Now , mash! Go sit your little clown-a** down and let intelligent people debate Dcan affairs. You are not ready to run with the big dogs so find a seat on the porch as a content clueless spectator.

    These houses are just temporary shelters for the occupants’ robust patronage to depraved Roosevelt and his indecent cohorts.

    These houses cannot be used by the temporary dwellers as collateral to obtain a loan from any financial institution.

    These supposedly free apartments and houses are not free. In fact, this ‘free’ housing scheme is intended to restrict your freedom of choice. Here is how.

    If you vote your conscience and refuse to support the incumbent party, more than likely, you would be kicked out as you have no legal entitlement to these houses.

    These houses and apartments are built exclusively for vote catching not to satisfy a growing need of the people.

    If we Knew Better,you are deliberate LIAR.In 1975 the Labour party had a total of 16 seats.Note well JAH KASS,in 1980 after the overthrow of Patrick John in 1979,4 years after the Labour party got 16 seats,they were reduced to 0.So in
    1980 Labour 0 seats
    1985 Labour 5 seats
    1990 Labour 4 seats
    1995 Labour 5 seats
    2000 Labour 10 seats
    2005 Labour 12 seats
    2009 Labour 18 seats
    With Linton as leader of UWP.
    2014 Labour 15 seats.
    In 2019 with Linton again as leader.
    Labour 18 seats.
    It is plain for any JAH KASS to see,without the support of Labourites who voted Labour in 1975 DFP would never win an election.The people who kept DFP in power were supporters of DLP.Now that the Labour supporters have returned to Labour no political party stands a chance.Mr Knew Better Dominica is and has always been Labour country.With the corruption,victimization and greed imposed on Dominicans between 1995 and 2000 UWP is a dead political party.It is dead and buried with Linton as leader.

      I am very happy you have reminded them that every “mal-chien” has its day.

      Good example is the recent passing of Mal Esprit one of Dca’ most notorious terrorist in his prime. He terrorized Dcans for years while claiming he could NEVER DIE. Sadly or some may say happily he passed recently and even the Belles River which he claimed he had control over and seemed to have crossed effortlessly over the years almost washed his coffin away.

      One cannot be of sane mind building susidised housing in places like Canefield East, Wallhouse, Jimmit or even Morne Daniel knowing the impact it can have on the appraised values of houses in the area. Can some educate the PM and his stooges on how the housing markets globally works? But again I repeat, Every dog has its day and so every politician will soon have theirs. Political power is usually given by the people who can also take it away overnight.

      Anyway, the recipients of Roosevelt packages and gifts for their votes need to remember that they are not the legitimate owners of the house or apartments they occupy, and especially the apartments.

      Dominicans need to know that “Montreal Management” is Roosevelt Skerrit, and anything that is built and supposedly owned by this shell company belongs to the sir knight the doctor of fart!
      When he is taken out of this earth, his children and Melissa shall be the Benefactors. It might take years; corrupted politicians don’t win forever, not even dictators, so eventually some government is going to came along and investigate this so called Montreal Management (Roosevelt Skerrit); truth will be found.
      We will discover who is the individual owner called Montreal Management.
      Somehow I think there is an individual thief stealing Dominica for their family!

        Man Dog, I know you are the smartest; whereas I am a dumb idiot; nevertheless; I think I can consider myself an authority where it pertains to Apartment buildings. Whereas I own, and rent apartments to people in the city of Los Angeles, and elsewhere!

        I can tell you in an apartment building, all of the toilet lines from every unit, from one to a hundred or more are tied and empty into the main sewer line which goes into the main sewer system under the streets, and disposed.
        So, my question to you is this; if I dispose residue, trash into my toilet which causes a blockage in the main line, blocking every other unit from flushing, who will be responsible for the clearing of the system?

        In my buildings if a situation like that arise, I the owner is compelled to have the lines snaked out, and cleared.

        So, that should tell you some individual “Montreal Management” is forever the owner of the giveaway apartments!

      If the Electoral System was not CORRUPT why did Roosevelt shelled out $500 000 for reforms to this system immediately following the last general election? He fully well knows it as well as all honest Dominicans and observers.

    Them houses can never be a substitute for election reform.

    Khadafy, Hugo, and many others did the same, and the result was a need for people to feel free and be able to take care of themselves, so the people in these countries revolted against the givers of hand me down.

    Remember the Chines proverb. Do not feed me, teach me to fend for myself and I will learn how to feed myself. Just imagine, Dominicans had such pride and work ethics that when they went to America, they criticized Back Americans and refused to accept welfare.

Is that not the same Canefield that is being built by the new middle class and where lending institutions can at least make some money? Look, in the hay day of the 60-70’s when St.Aroma was being developed by the middle class there were no subsidized housing built there.

    Why would Skerrit put subsidized housing in a place that is thriving? Why don’t he put them Morne Daniel? But that good for some of the red red red people up there on the morne. Their property value will soon start creeping down leaving them with $0 equity. Go Skerro go!

    The government’s housing initiative is a device that keeps those in receipt of – or in hope of – free housing bound to the person/party they perceive as the giver. If another party gains control they fear they would lose their concession.

    There is certainly something that our dear friends in Canefield East may not be telling us, and that is these new houses may not be for everyone. In fact, the houses may already be earmarked for specific residents and future residents with the propensity for velvet clothing or good lungs to shout out the “L” word when the need arises.

    The alleged current de-facto housing policy orientation seems to have at its heart, a conflict with the party’s motto: All Shall Eat. This should also translate to adequate housing access for All. Is there a house in the Canefield?

But here is what she wrote when Mervin Paul embarrassed Reggie Austrie and his own Skerrit party:
    “ Idira, you have spoken my thoughts here. I just do not understand why people believe that the Government simply have to build houses to give to them and their family.
    What is really the priority of the people in Dominica?”

    Let’s not blame the people but blame Skerrit for this housing foolishness of his. Is Skerrit trying to say he building houses all aver?

    Even if I voted UWP out in 2000, it is a fact that they were working all over and money was flowing. But Labor not working anywhere and people are much poorer.

      Skerrit, God’s concept is man should live by his sweat Gen 3:19. Furthermore a man should leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife Gen 2:24. The two should decide if they going to build and where. To have a government doing nothing except to handicap a nation is very troubling!

      Furthermore, how could it be fair for me to pay over a thousand dollars every month for my mortgage and car while some are getting government houses flipping free?

      Man I believe those of us that are paying a monthly mortgage should take a collective decision to stop paying the bank so if is a national crisis Skerrit is trying to create we would be able to save our money in a hole somewhere.

          There is no return in profits from the money spent, if you have a grocery store, stocked, and to each person who shop you give the goods to them free, how long would you remain in business unless you have an endless amount of money to restock?

    There is a severe shortage of houses in Dominica. It should be a good thing that the government is trying to fill this void.

    However, the most needy among us should be allowed these houses and not just boisterous and fanatical supporters of the DLP. These houses are built using money from the sale of our patrimony, so any citizen who satisfies the criterior set, regardless of your political persuasion, should be entitled.

    Secondly, no minister should handpick anyone for any of these houses. A non-partisan Board of Directors should decide this.

    Lastly, the occupants should receive legal titles to these houses and pay to own. The monthly mortgage can be discounted/inexpensive. Without that legal document of ownership, the occupants will remain dispossessed.

        It seems that you ran out of “highest,”Ibo.

        The hardest, coldest, most inconvenient fact for you and your ilk is that the development of Dominica will continue under the DLP and the majority will continue to elect Roosevelt Skerrit, or his replacement, as the preferred leader of this country. You and the UWPWee must figure out why we will always choose the DLP and Skerrit over anything that this current UWPwee has to offer, even in spite of an infinite list of “highests” from your keypad..

        The sooner you come to grips with this reality, the better.

          Focus on the message and stop attacking the messenger. Is my list of Roosevelt’s savagery to Dominica valid? Of course, it is!

            That can read the other way also. PM is delivering the message that his administration has agreed on. He is delivering a message also dose’nt that make him the messenger? why fo you place so much attack on him. You act Like PUTIN against some of his own people in UKRAINE. Why are you trying to kill the messenger?….You said it well. Your words not mine.

        These guys are empty vessels. Just as they say, empty vessels make the most noise. That is all they do everyday on this medium platform, making noises and cannot contribute anything tangible and significant to the development of their own country. A bunch of old, useless, recalcitrant, obstreperous, do-nothing UWP bums. Isn’t that an anachronism to have a high school drop-out of the 1950s and 1960s be the leader of a country among PMs of other islands who are university alumni and alumnae graduated in Economics, medicine, law, mathematics, Chartered Public Accountants, Phds. Dem days of Leblance and Baron and Robert Bradshaw, and Paul Southwell and Milton Cato, Eric Gary, and Alexander Bustamante and Vere Bird and Ebenezer Joshua, are long, long over. Get a grip on life and cling to the development train today or else you might get stuck on the tracks or derailed, not for Beta but for worse.

      Mr. ds, don’t you know that ” Make Dominica greater again” are the words of Donald Trump?
      All one need to do is this remove Dominica replace it with America; hence your quote will become “Make America greater again;” don’t you know even in Dominica people heard Donald Trump sang that same song; which after four years of his tenure, he instigate an insurrection to overthrow the now legitimate elected government of the united states?
      ds, if you are not residing in Dominica, asks someone in Dominica to send you a photograph of the Roseau river, what you see will make you asks yourself is it worth you disgracing yourself in the support of Roosevelt Skerrit?
      With all Roosevelt building, Dominica has the appearance of an aging human; Portsmouth is a ghost town, so too is Roseau, everybody is leaving ds, ask the corrupted crook Roosevelt Chichi Royer Skerrit why?
      Roosevelt must be paying you to write such pile of fart!
      Building resilience, see what happen in Mississippi flooding?

        Why are you so bent on derailing the development train? Get a life, Telemakak and rest your old bones and try to overcome your claustrophobia so you can head back home one day. Dominicans are happy. They are living better off than you are in the mexican crime-infested Los Angeles.

          Guy, what sort of development are you talking about: (in Dominica?)
          What happens when the sale of passports come to an end?

          In any developing country, jobs are the number one priority! If people are able to work and earn a living from good paying jobs, they can fend for themselves, as the generation prior to ours did.
          ds, the sale of passports on the island of Antigua has come to an almost stop, since the advent of the abduction of Indian crook that Roosevelt was involved into, with Gaston.
          Roosevelt build houses and give to his red devils, how many of the other political party supporters you know got one?
          Name the one ds!
          I am not claustrophobic ds, I simply will not return to Dominica as long as Roosevelt is prime minster of Dominica.

          Again who owns Montreal Management; is it you ds, or Roosevelt Skerrit?
          Who is the owner and benefactor of the houses and apartments since the occupants do not own them?
          Get smart ds!

          Hahahahahahahahahahah!

            I know you waiting on the modern airport to be built so you can say to your friends that jet will take me right into my backyard in Wesley. Thanks be to Skerrit. I guess we can expect you home in in 2025. Right?

    Who will be chosen for these homes? Does the government even know how many people thee are in Dominica to know how many homes need to be built? Or are they just building as they feel with no real thought as to the need. Now what kind of buildings are you putting there to put what kind of people. How will this new development affect those who have worked hard and invested in purchasing and developing their properties? Hopefully the Canefield East doesnt turn into bath estate with a bunch of characters moving in to turn the place into a ghetto area.
