Plans for international airport office complex being finalized says PM Skerrit

PM Skerrit and entourage on an airport site visit in January 2021

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has said his government is finalizing plans for the construction of a major office complex for the one billion dollar international airport.

“A lot of things are happening where the international airport is concerned,” he stated. “We are finalizing the construction of a major office complex for the airport, a three-story building in Wesley on the location of the former St Andrew’s High School.”

According to him, a contractor has been identified, “so very soon towards the summer you will see movement of earth.”

The Prime Minister also mentioned the construction of homes for Wesley residents who will be affected by the project.

“We also built homes for people who we felt that we had a moral obligation to,” Skerrit stated. “We wanted to take care of them as well.”

He revealed further, that 12 single apartments are being built for 12 squatters.

The one billion dollar contract for the much-talked-about international airport project was signed between the Government of Dominica and Montreal Management Consultant Establishment (MMCE) on June 9th, 2021 signaling the official commencement.

Upon completion, according to Skerrit, Dominicans will have a modern International Airport, equipped with air bridges, and fully outfitted to receive international passengers and cargo.

It is expected that the construction project, which will be executed in five phases, will be completed within five years and will be built to meet Dominica’s new resilience construction standards.

    Gray, I said I was not ever going to write anything on DNO anymore, and that’s due to someone using my name to impersonate me writing their comments. I continued to read, but refused to write, however since I saw where you made a presentation regarding Roosevelt fake Ph.D’s I have returned temporally to present you with this:

    “Trinidad’s Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley; Keith Christopher Rowley was born on October 24, 1949 in Tobago. He was raised by his grandparents who were farmers. Rowley attended Bishop’s High School in Tobago and later the University of the West Indies in Jamaica. He obtained a graduate degree in geology with a specialization in geochemistry”

    You read me boy?

    Hahahahahahahahahahah!

    Such are not bought eh!

    You boy Roosevelt does not have any academics, politics in Dominica, is not a criteria to earn degrees.

    Roosevelt has nothing, he is a nobody academically, that’s why he was not called Dr. Skerrit in Guyana!

      Gary, since I read where you suggest Joel Johnson Robin should be held accountable; for I suppose speaking the truth about Skerrit, and his pile of bought garbage, I need to present to you and the many confounded corrupted people in Dominica dancing with corrupted Skerrit over a bought bit of no value paper.

      Educate yourself Gary!

      Criteria for Awarding Honorary Degrees: The candidate shall have achieved distinction in a field of honorable endeavor so that their name on the list of honorary alumni will reflect credit on Carleton. The candidate, in character and conduct, shall have reflected the fundamental principles for which Carleton stands.

      Gary here is the definition of the term “alumni:” a graduate or former student of a particular school, college, or university!

      Name me the college or University in the United States, or Punjab India where Roosevelt attended and graduate from nuh!

      You can’t.

        So, Gary, let me show you that I know that I know what I am talking about; some of you hear words, and the voices of people, but I am one who research and get the understand of things before I settle and honor people who are not deserving.

        Roosevelt should not be granted an honorary degree except if it is granted by professor ‘you Gary’ and Man Dog, and the other ignorant kindergarten sucker fake Lin Clown; you know why”

        Read this: note the term “Carleton.”

        Carleton has always awarded honorary degrees sparingly and selects its recipients with great care and with the assent of both the faculty and Board of Trustees. Carleton seeks to honor those who have achieved eminence in their own profession or who have rendered distinguished service to society.

        With me Gary, it is all educational, and intellectual; so where as you honor Roosevelt, I am here to tell you Roosevelt has not contributed anything to not even a dog, to earn him an honorary degree.
        Say Francisco Dog…

            “Is all this bla bla bla necessary, does it have any effect on The PM.”(Gary).
            Gary, you have just placed yourself in a box, by doing so, you proved that you lack comprehension of what Dods spoke about.
            In my opinion you are grabbing at straws; however, Telemaque understanding of the Carleton concept is firm; and I do agree with who Telemaque may be, he/she seems to be very informed!
            As for the one Wesley Major; and another Wesley ambassador, others, the one who believe Telemaque English is poor, I think you boarder on the edge of an idiot, I read Telemaque comments all I find are simple typing errors, such as left out word, or misspell words; however he/she I am sure is an educated person.
            To know if a person is educated or not; one looks for consistency, which I found!

            Not only you two, are consumed with hatred and jealousy of the person: that’s very bad; the hatred of that person cannot help any of you.

    What will you do in the next 5 years until the airport is realized?
    It’s said that it takes 5 years, however experience in airport development shows that projects always take a bit to a lot longer than planned and turn out to be a bit to a lot more expensive than planned, due to unforeseen circumstances. If 5 is said, realistically it may be 6. Next. The lead time to bring an international airline to a location usually at the very least takes 6 months to one year. That would be after the airport is operational. An airline cannot open a can of aircraft and comes immediately. It takes route planning, aircraft availability, and crew availability. Already at this time aircraft and crew issues have become critical. And even then airlines may have priorities for new destinations where there is already an existing high demand, call it competition.
    The question remains what to do in the 5-7 years before the opening of the airport?

    Can those with the expertise and the wherewithal get a clear and detailed updated videotape of what is happening at the proposed site of this phantom international airport?

    Imagine, this should be the biggest investment in the history of Dominica, yet, despite this fact, it lacks specificity:- precise cost, commencement and completion dates; design plans; information about the environmental studies; Anthony Haiden’s Sterling record of building airports; and the list continues.

    No other English speaking country, in the Western Hemisphere, can this lack of transparency and accountability in government happens without fierce protests and robust demonstrations by the inhabitants.

    Dominicans are a special breed of people – servile, incurious, easily conformable and masochistic. Their many wounds are self-inflicked.

    There is a significant difference between farming for home consumption, domestic national consumption, and export. Most farming for export is done on sizable farms because the export market sector is more demanding and specific in the requirements needed because of competition. For the domestic market sector segmentation is not as much of a challenge and not as sophisticated as the export markets. In Dominica, we divided up the large estates into small parcels of land. When Skerritt brags that he’s a farmer he needs to identify that he’s in the domestic market category. To tell other Caribbean leaders to buy from their domestic product pool should not have to sound like a brilliant innovation. They are the leaders who issue licenses for the import of foreign food. I’m sure that he’s issued said licenses and has not revoked them. Because of preference and currying favor, supermarkets and hotels will buy from the rich and powerful over the ordinary full-time farmers. Go figure.

    We saw that very photograph more than a year ago, with the clowns from the cabal walking with Roosevelt; as if they are on a mission of urgency; the little rat Roosevelt also at one time presented a photograph of what he claimed is the the International Airport been built.
    What the did not know is that some people identified the photograph is out of another country where earth is being moved.
    In Roosevelt world the Carriage comes before the horse; rather than the horse pull the carriage, the carriage pulls the horse.

    He claims that he is going to build a three story build at Londonderry; to accommodate what?
    He’s not building airport Roosevelt is after the land; what he intends to build will be in the name of Montreal Management, which exists only in Dominica, it’s not a Canadian company, nor out of Dubai. There is no such company know to be builders of International Airport!
    Roosevelt is a liar, the houses he said he building Wesley, are replacement for the homes of people…

      To the man who eats dog flesh; understand someone can have a hundred doctorate; nevertheless, they can only be called “doctor.”

      The reason Dominicans calls Roosevelt “Dr. Dr.” is because they are making a fool out of him; he is a joke, and that’s what that doctor, doctor, thing is all about.

      So, whereas you believe you are giving recognition to his none academic achievement, recognizing his bought scraps of useless papers; you are aiding and abating in making a fool out of Roosevelt too!

      An honorary degree should be a given for something significant the recipient did and are not bought by people simply because they wish to be called doctor!

      If the corrupted crook Roosevelt wish the title of Doctor bestowed on him; let’s challenge him to major in some science even in the humanities, past the test; let us see if he can earn that degree.

      He can’t, because he does not have the academic ability: It’s about academia, not Dominica Banana Republic politics!

          In Roosevelt case that clown will do anything to be recognized as doctor.
          The man is so ignorant, when he got his bit of fart from Punjab, he commented ” more than 90% of the time when people say they are sick, they are not it;’s in their mind.”

            If Roosevelt get kicked out of office today, and writes a resume for a job, where his scholastic abilities are concerned, he cannot claim he has an honorary degree, he cannot even introduce himself as doctor to anyone.
            The man is a joke!
            People like Bill Cosby was granted honorary doctors degree from a University he was affiliated with, and for his contribution of money from time to time, he was awarded that honorary degree, that is different from a man putting himself out to buy an honorary degree.
            And even at that when Bill fell from grace, the university rescinded their issued worthless bit of paper!

      Very simple, just another instrument to fleece to coffers of Ma Dominique without anybody noticing. Well, some of us who can add 2 and 2 together and actually come up with 4 know what this is all about. All I will say right now, it’s all about inflated invoices…

        Why are you making your political partisan beliefs come between your understanding of something and the reality of what it is. To suggest that it is very simple, the CBI is just another instrument to fleece to coffers of Ma Dominique without anybody noticing, is somewhat gross negligence by you willfully ignoring facts. Do you know the fiscal management procedures that are in place for the disbursement of the monies allocated to projects under The CBI, saying that it is all about inflated invoices, really, this just explains your willful ignorance, so long.

          We all know the truth hurts. YOU are very much troubled by that fact. You think you are very clever but you are nothing but a little worm who tries to defend the indefensible on every occasion. Why don’t YOU explain to all of us why the CM refuses to account for our CBI money and what role MMCE plays in government circles in particular in relation to huge construction contract most of which apparently financed by the CBI program.

            Do you know what a perception is, you have made statements based on perceptions not facts. You made allegations, can you prove it. When you say quote “why the CM refuses to account for our CBI money”. What money you are talking about, that is our money. I cannot help you, and I’m not going to get into an argument with you making such a statement, be content with your willful ignorance.

            As I said, if you want to understand something, the first thing an intelligent person does is read and find out about the thing before making silly statements and asking ludicrous questions or making statements based on perceptions. Partisan politics should not be the deciding factor in understanding the CBI. What you believe about something is not necessarily what it is, by the way, do you think I’m a worm because of the opinions I express, so long.

            Answer me one question, were, in your opinion, are the proceeds of the CBI program gone? Now don’t tell me new airport… it doesn’t exist! Don’t tell me all those new homes for Labour supporters because that is at best 10% of the proceeds. New hospital I hear you shooting now… Didn’t your CM tell us that was financed by China? Or was that a lie? Boy get out of here!!!!!!

      Why don’t you turn from your wondering as to how they are going to find the money needed to build the Airport to understanding how the CBI works. Your vague understanding of Montreal Management Consultant website is not a good measurement of their ability to
      to do what they say, but rather look at their accomplishments as to what they have done in Dominica.

      They who are cowards, and are afraid to speak will not answer that question, but I will simply tell you it is another of Roosevelt Shell-companies!

      The way that is set up, the next government to take over Dominica, will have to engage some highly skilled forensic export to unravel what appears to be a mystery to trace the money back to Roosevelt, it’s going to be difficult but the the thieves involved will be caught.

      This “Montreal Management Consultant Establishment (MMCE)” they pretend it is a Canadian company, nevertheless, its not, they also make belief it is Dubai, with some crook from Lebanon as owner.

      The owner is a Dominica thief, who’s name, if we mention it the devil he is will clean the treasury and disappear in Russia or Lebanon, since his arsenal of money will not last long in Dubai.

      All the given apartments in Dominica, belong to the thief!

    We would do well to monitor the situation that the BVI has got itself into by hankering after a misguided concept of betterment that is beyond their legitimate means.

    One of my comments to their news site reads:

    The fundamental problem faced by Caribbean small island states is not one of self-governance but of self-sufficiency.

    Even on islands that are rich in natural resources the present generation of islanders would rather drive a taxi than farm the land. And to finance an alien lifestyle, their governments sell passports to foreigners.

    I can understand the dilemma. As one Virgin Islander told me 40 years ago: Roger, I can ride a donkey better than any man on the island, but I’d rather drive a motorcar!

    There was no start date and no end date for this project. None of the phases were listed in numerical order with either a start or completion date. Dissecting this long-drawn-out statement left me with the same questions that I had at the beginning of this report. It is no wonder why Dominicans are so skeptical about this project. St. Vincent’s airport project had weekly updates, photos, videos etc. I guess cameras are inoperable in Dominica.

    Dominicans are becoming fatigue with this fictitious Dr² Roosevelt Skerrit International Airport saga. After the elaborate public fanfare at the signing of the contract with Anthony Haden, one got the distinct impression that EVERYTHING was in place.

    This international airport reminds me very much of the many ghost projects – Pakistani university, new seaport facilities, the two boats carrying agricultural produce from Dominica to the other Caribbean countrie- one going north, and the other south bound.

    For many years, Dominicans have been promised geothermal energy. Recently, a government minister declared this project is on the verge of coming to fruition. Up to this present moment, there is not enough geothermal energy to power one lightbulb.

    The Mehul Choski matter is threatening to dominating the news. As expected, here comes the diversionary strategy. Take note people as to which media house is leading the distraction.

    Destroying prime real estate which is shrinking to build an unneeded airport. Jet aircraft can already land at Melville Hall so why waste money and destroy prime land just so yours truly can enrich himself and his friends some more. A new airport is not needed jets can land on Dominica already just improve the current location. Dominica needs a new leader. After all the beautiful land is destroyed there still will not be an international airport. It will go the same way as the steam powered power plant yours truly has been promising for 20 years all his hot steam no electricity. Who is benefiting financially by this ill advised en devour surely not the people of Dominica they are still looking for all the missing treasury money from passport sales.

    Satan, the LIAR and deceiver of the people must stop lying and deceiving our people and nation one day and the curse over our country due to the lying spirits of Satan that has stagnated everything good, will be soon lifted.
    But people remember John 8:44 says
    Ye are of your father the devil…”He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

      It is a Biblical fact, that Satan can only do what the Most High allows him to do, because the Most High controls everything, whether it be good or whether it be evil, therefor, if Satan is being mischievous in Dominica, then there is a great sin in Dominica which has made the Most High angry.

    What we want is a progress report. Pictures showing us ongoing progress on the ground. What has been built so far?

      If I were to assess your comments, it would be 10 out of 10. Those are exactly my sentiments.

      The only time I believe this diseased, compulsive liar (Roosevelt) is when I see the concrete, finished project.

      Roosevelt is the master of lies and a fierce enemy of truth. Verify everything he says before you believe even when he says ‘is’ or ‘a’. Truth and Roosevelt is like mixing oil and water.

      Dominica will soon become one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world due to emigration (out-migration) and a high death rate (disease, crimes, poverty).
