Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has expressed sadness at the passing of Project Director of Montreal Management Consultants Est. (MMCE), Christopher Timmins.

MMCE is at the heart of Dominica’s Housing Programme having entered into a partnership with the government to construct houses and other facilities with revenue obtained under a specially dispensed housing option of the Citizenship By Investment Programme.

MMCE announced in a statement sent to DNO today that Timmins died on Saturday, December 12, 2020.

“This is truly a great loss for MMCE and to the community as a whole,” MMCE stated. “Chris’ dedication to the company and knowledge of the industry has contributed significantly to our company’s success. We will remember Chris fondly and how extraordinary a person he was.”

In his statement, issued today, the Prime Minister affirmed, “without fear of contradiction,” that Chris’ presence was felt throughout the entire island.

“To some, he was an essential cog in the wheel of this country’s ongoing housing and health care development but for many, including myself, he was a friend whose lasting legacy will be cherished throughout Dominica for generations to come,” Skerrit remarked.

He concluded, “On behalf of the government and people of the Commonwealth of Dominica, I extend my sympathies to the management and staff of MMCE and to Chris’ family and loved ones for their profound loss. May his soul rest in eternal peace.”

    That funeral seems hasty. MMC does have enough money to fly that man’s body to his own country and have a proper autopsy. Why the rush.

    Ughhhhhh 8) ! Suspected cause of death? Is our local police capable of investigating this “SUDDEN DEATH”? If memory serves me well Roosie and Pierro also died suddenly and up to now no real answers. When people know a little too much and the boat begins to rock rather violently things like this happens MIRACULOUSLY and investigations are blocked. The cookie will continue to crumble……..mark my words

    Sorry for the deceased’s family. It is never a cause for rejoicing to lose a loved one. Mr. Timmins was privy to many secrets, sensitive information through his direct, one-on-one dealings with Roosevelt Skerrit, wo did not explain the circumstances or location of his death. This also made Mr. Timmins position vulnerable and there will be suspicion in certain quarters and probably crocodile tears in others. After all, dead man tell no tales!

    It’s sad but you mean there are no builders Dominican builders, party supporters or not who are able or have capacity to build those buildings? So much concrete being poured and only Dominicans involved are laborers? Please help me out somebody.

      So, be informed that I am capable of communicating in Deutsch; (German), and Espanol ( Spanish). Nevertheless, I am quite sure I am more than capable of using the English language in a highly effective way to my advantage that even a first-day kindergarten student can hopefully understand.

      Before you attempt to assassinate me, read the comments of “Waiting For Airport” perhaps that person’s comments might enlighten you a bit; perhaps only then you might begin to get an insight to understand my comments.

      Meanwhile, if you wish to be a Slave to Roosevelt, and his white accomplices, feel free to go down on your knees, and kiss up to your slave master.

      I don’t have too, but when you decide to critize someone have something better to offer.

    So Skerrit, you saying there is no black person/management consultants of Dominica heritage in the world who is competent enough to be at the heart of the Dominica Housing program? Instead you choose to hand over 64k per month of D A people’s hard earned money to yet another rich white company? When will our people wake up to the reality of betrayal we face from those we put in power?

      Why are you writing such foolishness. Your comment just shows how ignorant and informed you are regarding the housing program as it regards Montreal Management Consultants Est. (MMCE.) The reality you portray is yours it is your version based on the political partisan rhetoric you choose.

        December 14, 2020

        Gary, you cannot make a statement like that without facts. What is the point you are trying to put across? Your comment just seems emotionally defensive with zero facts to prove whatever point it is you are trying to make.

        Fact: our PM pays 64k per month to MMCE! Fact: this white man pictured is the (late) project director of MMCE! What FACTS can you present to challenge this narrative? Or are you just doing the keyboard equivalent of blowing hot air?

    Oh what a great book we have to rely on called the Holy Bible. My people read Psalm chapter 39 verse 6

      Not from king James bible, that’s what got us where ‘we’ are today. The mad man forced his revision upon us all while he was so busy enslaving the WHOLE of humanity carefully removing one of the 43 commandments his boys found which said in Shakespearese “thou shalt NOT enslave thy human brother”. Whether Skerrit or Linton, do your own research pal.

    “The abolition of slavery in 1834 enabled Dominica by 1838 to become the only British Caribbean colony to have a Black-controlled legislature in the 19th century. Most Black legislators were small holders or merchants who held economic and social views diametrically opposed to the interests of the small, wealthy English planter class.”

    Since 1834, no Black Dominican was ordered by a slave owner, nor the slave master with his crack whip, and gun in hand ordering black people to cry for the white man when he is sick or dead.

    If you Roosevelt want to cry for that man, go right ahead, and do so, because you must have a reason; but this crap here:

    “In his statement, issued today, the Prime Minister affirmed, “without fear of contradiction,” that Chris’ presence was felt throughout the entire island.”

    That only goes to show you how little you know about Dominicans, you are capable of bribing people to vote for you, tears cannot be bought!

      Is Chris that build all the majee housing we seeing around the island…so he right. Bellevue, Lablaine, Picard, Purple Turtle. All those housing scheme Chris that was in charge. So wen it start to leak and wall cracking etc.. we know who to blame.

    Yes Me, boy Francisco got you drift; left, right and center!

    I will not laugh, but when it is not in the will of God; it can only last for a short period of time!

    So now the question is who are his benefactors of the CBI money.

    You see all of those people who gave you thumbs down, they would not even recognize lighten if it struck them when they stand.

    I suppose they are now in mourning with the father of corruption Roosevelt Skerrit!

    Man dead man gone who cares, perhaps his sole benefactor!

    If a thing is of God it shall prevail, if it is not of God it shall destroy itself: If the housing revolution is supported by moner derived from the sale of Dominica passports, how come a foreigner could be so deeply involved?

    We all have to die sooner or later, but more than half the time when the wicked prospers off the blood of the poor and unfortunate, God has a way of dealing with the corrupted!

    And it does not matter if the corrupted is young or old!

    Now I wonder if I am a Dominica politician, and I thief billions and save it in another country, let’s say Canada in a Canadian citizen name and that Canadian citizen just happens to die suddenly, I wonder what would happen to all me billions?

    I doh know eh!

    Elizabeth, since you are a Dominican Canadian, you know about Canada more than I boy perhaps you will be kind enough to tell I boy!

    DNO that statement was posted on Facebook since last evening and has been well known in Dominica since then.

    Stop trying to make it look like you got it today and is breaking news.

    Wake up.

    Will this have any effect on the international airport development?
    “Friend”? “Legacy”?

        Shame on her what?

        People, (Dominicans) die ever so often, most of them are diehard labor man, and women; you don’t know their names because they are not even mentioned in an obituary.

        You don’t see Roosevelt Skerrit that damn hypocritical corrupted rat shedding any slimy crocodile tears. “Me” has a right to express his/herself in any way deems fit!

        My question to you Kathy, is how significant was that man in your life?

        You hear Roosevelt talking crap about his death is felt over the whole island; that is only in Roosevelt’s mind; you need to understand, such people are brought into Dominica for no other purpose but money. They receive, and kickbacks are received by some political hierarchy!

        They bring people into Dominica, give them more than twenty million dollars for free, say for them to spend their personal money to build hotels, where on earth can you hear something like that besides Dominica, and someone does not land in jail?
        Anything they do in Dominica,…

        So Kathy you do not think is God that decides when a man dies then. We do not know what is in God’s mind, do you so it’s a mystery. But Is not man that decides that

      Your comments are very silly and shows no depths of thought. Firstly, this is a human being and natural human instinct is to empathize. Secondly, if you believe that the death of one man will result in obstruction of such a huge company’s program all I can say is alas for you
