A three-member team led by Dominica’s International Relief Coordinator and Commonwealth Secretary General- Designate, Baroness Patricia Scotland is presently on the island as part of a ‘scoping mission’ to assist government in developing its reconstruction plan following Tropical Storm Erika.

The team include World Renowned Architect John McAslan and Consultant & AgroChemist , Dr. Lucretia Gabriel both from the United Kingdom (UK).

They have already visited some of the affected sites and met with some of the technical staff of the various ministries.

“We are here to assist Dominica to deliver Dominica’s plan,” Scotland said during a press conference held at the Ministry of Finance conference room on Thursday. “Dominica already has a rehabilitation plan for itself. One of the things that we are doing is coming here to listen to what Dominica wants for herself and then looking as to how we can assist the delivery of that plan.”

Scotland explained that the plan is not different from what Dominica already has, “it is the same plan and looking at how the international community and those who may be willing to assist Dominica from within Dominica, from within our region, from within the Commonwealth and through the wider world, how we can garner that support to enable Dominica to deliver the plan she is already on.”

She said her team have listened very carefully to what everyone has said during the visit.

“We are also going to hopefully speak to NGO’s and others to listen to what they are doing,” Scotland stated. “That is why this is not an alternative, it is collaboration.”

Foreign Affairs Minister Francine Baron said the road to rebuilding and recovering is a long one and the country need all hands on board to help in its recovery.

“The Prime Minister has been accused of being a visionary and that he is, it was immediately clear to him that after the storm that if we were to recover from Erika and if we were to rebuild Dominica and build it back better that we needed all hands on board,” she stated. “We needed to call on assistance from all quarters, we needed to be open to receiving advice and support from the International community.”

She stated further that, “we can only hope to recover and recover quickly if we reach out to others and embrace the expertise that is out there.”

Meantime, McAslan said the key areas visited have highlighted the ‘extraordinary progress,’ in terms of recovery that have been made since Erika ravaged Dominica on August 27, 2015, however, there are challenges that lie ahead.

“The challenges that lie ahead, I think, are probably primarily in some sort of order infrastructure repair, because the heart of this sort of project or this sort of disaster is the need to, not just repair infrastructure but reconsider how infrastructure was formed in the first place,” he noted. “The second, of course, is the pressing need for resettlement for not just repair of homes…but also to house those who have lost their homes in the tragic circumstances of Erika.”

This initial visit was made possible with the assistance from the British government.

    The Baroness had a slip of the tongue when she mention salt. What she really meant was, she is here to support Dominica, and you all should do what you all do best. Find your child’s father and take them to court for maintenance, the Baroness is not here to support fatherless children. Grow up.

    I am grateful for the help that the U.K. is providing but to have this mission headed by Baroness Scotland with Dr. Gabriel in tow is too contentious. It is like putting more oil on a fire and I hope the U.K. have a rethink and replace her with an expert that has no political baggage or motives so we can concentrate on the work that really needs doing. Baroness Scotland’s visit right now is a distraction.

Whatever sel (salt) you find during your scoping mission please take with you and your cronies because you and Skerrit have our pressah hitting the roof. Allez avec pas veeway souplay!

Apart from suck salt, you all will have some sleepless nights and it will show in your eyes. It is not what Dominica can do for you, but is what you can do for Dominica. Now we know why Dominicans go to other country and got killed or jailed. No respect, uneducated and badly brought up. We are there to help you either D’O OR G’O. The magnificent One got his eyes on you. Hope and Pray because there is no hiding place. Spare a thought for Dominica, we will rebuild it.

    It is a FACT that UWP Supporters hate all the help that Dominica is getting. If the Baroness were to neglect Dominica then it would be a problem. The fact is that the supporters of BLUE never did a stroke of work to raise funds to assist in the rebuilding of Dominica but rather to tear down every effort made.

    Are you guys crazy? AWA is Lennox who have placed yall in some SATANIC ILLUSION. This is not simple at all. A bunch of heartless people United to Weaken Dominica. Nehemiah built the walls of Jerusalem and he received help from positive people and when Sanballot grudged and scorned him, Almighty GOD smote them.

    I will do my part to help build my island without you all because our leaders are Positive, they don’t worry with yall scornful behaiviour, they keep looking forward and are focussed.

    Do you see the transitive interference of Baroness Patricia Scotland in Dominica’s politics and political system? If UWP wins she is out. So D-Day after our PM decided he would run again just to defeat UWP, here comes the Baroness with crumbs, and so many people are willing to stretch out a hand believing something is really going to be done for DA. This is only a political blindfold for people who are satisfied that they will continue to live life as they have from under Labour, UWP, and Freedom. Nothing has and will change. While DA continues to provide one of the best secondary education in the Caribbean, generally the only goal of the students who are being educated with Tax Payer’s money is to go away and study to never return. How can one blame them.

I his place will never get any where no wonder our leaders equate us to his dogs. Abbatoir we cannot build, hospital we cannot build, air strip we cannot build, bridge we cannot build, hotel we cannot build, airport, we cannot build, agri center we cannot build, roads we cannot build, stadium we cannot build. What are we good for? Where are the engineering firms in Dominica? Baroness Scotland is nothing but an overseer on the slave plantation called The Commonwealth.

Come on! Baroness is one of us, BLACK DOMINICAN who has some level of skills/expertise and experiences, who is willing to make her contribution towards nation building. Instead of tearing down the poor lady” BLACK DOMINICAN” let us find civilize/professional ways to engage her so that her office and expertise can benefit Dominica and the Black race despite our party colours. Stop this political divisiveness let’s start building!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The wonderful and highly respected Baroness Mwen ka di yo, suce sel is back on Island! I wonder what new exciting insults she has for us this time as she and her friends go about “scoping” out areas in need of her assistance. I wonder if she will condone and support the Supreme Leader’s decree commanding his loyal subjects to go out and hurl insults at those that she herself instructed to “suck salt” late last year! After a woman of her stature and position stooped so low as to enter the arena of gutter politics, it is quite a challenge to take the baroness seriously much less her position as International Disaster Relief Coordinator. Maybe the recent meeting with the Pope might bear some fruit and we might get some Bishops and Priests to pray for us and forgive our past sins and the sins we are about to commit during this Carnival season. Other than that, this may be just another of the propaganda shows to sway public opinion concerning the lag in our recovery efforts.

    Welcome! We need all the help we can get, particularly if is freely given, without ulterior motive and of high quality and I say “thank you” to the British Govt., who’s response team was one of the first on the scene after Erika with practical help. I have no problem with John McAslan, an internationally renowned architect, specialising in infrastrurtural projects. However, I do have a sense of unease about Dr. Lucretia Gabriel, director of SIS Ltd. in Trinidad & Tobago and sister of Lolita Applewaite, former Secretary -General of Caricom. Dr. Gabriel appears to have close links to the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of Saint George and was in Dominica last Dec. at the same time as Baroness Scotland, when the latter gave Dominicans the infamous, hurtful and insulting advice to go and “suck salt”.
    I hope Dr. Gabriel’s involvement is one of genuine care and not just an opportunistic lucrative consultancy.

      UWP supporters are consistently critical. They never see the good in anything. Keep on.. If you are only critical, one day you will surely suck salt including your fingers and toes.
      What is more, you project you are a talker, a critic, not a helper, a defender and one who is enthusiastic about Dominica being rebuilt. How sad!

    The Baroness was appointed Relief Coordinator approximately six months ago and all we are hearing is her visit to Dominica with a team to assist Dominica post Erika. I would feel better, had she told us, because of her work load to come as Commonwealth Secretary, she has decided to spend the carnival season with us in order to free up herself. The woman is in Dominica, she does not give us a report of her achievements as Relief Coordinator, she does not even put a penny in the treasury to help Dominicans. As far as I am concerned, that is what I consider a traitor to the cause. On second thought, maybe she was right when she told us to sou say cel.

      Common sense is required. What do you expect to hear and to know at this stage? Some of you are too critical. This is all what you excel in. Unlock and open your mind. Surely you should know that nothing as this and on this scale is solved overnight and occurs overnight.
      Think of this. Did you consider how many meetings were held about it and prior to her second visit to Dominica? This is why she returned to Dominica with her team. They must take a view of Dominica’s situation and what needs to be done. After all is said and done, then nationals will be apprised of them. Patience is a virtue

    God help us in this Dominica. They are all enriching themselves and the people are suffering. One day it will end. God is looking from above.

      Big bunch of complainers. On whose behalf did you make this comment? I do think some of you are big-time exaggerators who do not understand your very own situation and who blow everything out of proportion.
      The people are suffering? I would like to meet “the people” of Dominica who are suffering. I would also like to ask them a few relevant questions and why they think they are suffering. I doubt they are worst off than some people in the industrialized countries as also in Great Britain.
      Those who say they are suffering (from what :?: ) should tell us in what manner they are suffering.

      PLease read and make a sensible comment. The Government did not pay for their visit but the UK government … Read the article 3 times.

    how will they get assistance when the entire global village is clearly aware that the regime in Dominica is corrupt…

    it’s not going to happen, as the IMF told this regime to set up a fund for monies collected from passport sales, read between the lines, has the regime began the process of collection of funds from the sales in a special account? hard to tell as the regime does everything in secret.

    just not gonna happen folks, Dominica is Dead and Dusted take my word!!

    This regime will NEVER bring Dominica to success everything they do is a failure, look at the Geothermal Project, dead and dusted.

    getting rid of labour will at least breath some fresh hope into Dominica’s cause..

      As if there is no member of the public in Dominica who is corrupt.
      Be careful you do not pay for your words. You better commence saving your money for that.

    Will she disclose exactly how much was raised for TS Erika relief or not? Will there be a press conference to address the plight of those still displaced by the storm? Dominicans have a RIGHT to know what happens to them.

    I hope you brought plenty of salt Patricia because we seem to have run out of supplies for people to suck on.

    PS. It is more than five months after Erika. Where were you?

        No thank you Facts, I leave that pleasure all to you. But if you can not find salt to suck you can nibble on a 1iquorice stick instead.

    Uhhhh so where is the money the Baroness has raised already? Am I to assume that since her appoint as International Relief Cordinator (or whatever title she got from Skerro) she has not received a dollar on our behalf? How many months now since Erika visited?

    Well I guess she warned us the last time she visited that we should all Sousay Sel. However, I still want to know if she has collected any money and if yes how much and where is it? Can the press please ask Baroness Sousay Sel this simple question? I am waiting :twisted:

      Before you can ask a question isn’t there something called respect, what this nonsense about Baroness Sousay Sel. How then can you be taken seriously when you write such nonsense. Your question to The Commonwealth Secretary General- Designate, Baroness Patricia Scotland can be asked by The Hon. Lenox Linton, he is on the public accounts committee, he can request this information in Parliament and I’m sure he will receive the answer.Have you not ever wondered why he never ask such questions in Parliament, he leaves this questions to his followers like you with silly perceptions and ludicrous imaginations.

        Gary, It was the Baroness who told us to go and suck salt. So how can that be nonsense, coming from the Secretary General of the Commonwealth and representative of the queen that is on our money? Tell us that Gary. We are taking tha very serious Gary. Is she who said it and we will never let her forget either.

        Sorry Gary, respect is “earned” not gotten by those who think a title is all that is needed for all to bow to them. Oh heel to the no. Call us Dominicans whatever you want but make no mistake, most of us are by no means donkeys…if you get me drift. Baroness Sousay Sel MUST know her dog’s place and her cat’s position. Who the hell anointed her to the point that she dare come to MY COUNTRY and insult MY PEOPLE and have the nerve to enjoy our money (at her party) and walk away without giving an apology. That sir, will NEVER be forgotten :twisted: :twisted: . Just remember sir, RESPECT IS EARNED!

        Always Assertive! :twisted: :twisted:

        Gary,you can’t be serious, or you have only recently come to this discussion. Baroness Scotland first told a segment of the Dominican populace to “suck salt”. She is yet to apologize for this crass and gutter utterance. Now you talking about respect.To receive respect you have to give it also
