    Great work Mr Valmond. Very proud to see a young (male) Domincan so involved. I went searching for more on him and found he has been doing so much since H. Maria and getting valuable training too. I had no idea. In 2022/3 he was the only Caribbean youth to represent climate change in Dubai. Great stuff. Keep up to good work..more will follow. You are right..it is high time the young take a step forward…the future belongs to you…is you all that will be affected most by it. Make it what you want it to be.

      Most “activists” are not very intelligent people. Just loud enough and desiring of attention to get it.

    Why not send Henderson the grand bay pal rep? Wouldn’t that benefit Dominica at this point in time? Boy look a waste of money. Someone has made out an embellished resume for my boy and a position in the labor party is without question. Don’t be surprised if he becomes Henderson’s boss. I’m almost positive that this kid doesn’t know a hoot about renewable energy. And what is he now studying in school? Physics? Wey papa (Dominica Dubai Friendship Recycle Plant) coming soon. Half of Dubai population is Dominicans anyway.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 5 Thumb down 3
