Leader of the United Workers Party (UWP), Lennox Linton has demanded urgent action from the government of Dominica to address the situation faced as it relates to the Marigot Hospital and called for a national health care facility in the area.

He was addressing UWP supporters at an all-night candlelight vigil on Thursday evening on the Melville Hall main road as the controversy over the temporary closure of the hospital continues.

The hospital was shut down due to an infestation of mold and fungus.

“When the vital interest of people in a civilize world are affected they stand up and they demand action from the government that they pay to do their work and this is exactly what we are doing. We are standing up to demand urgent action from the government we pay to look about our interest, we are demanding urgent action on a national healthcare facility in Dominica,” Linton said.

He continued, “I know what we demand is going to happen because it is what it righteous and just, not just for this community but for the entire Commonwealth of Dominica, for the Caribbean and for the world.”

He argued that the people in the Marigot community have sat back patiently as good citizens and waited on the government to behave honourably and in the public interest, but haven’t received any satisfaction.

“Every time we have sat back and every time we have sat down and every time we have found reason for why they say we cannot do what we know they can do, and they are mandated to do, they have kicked us and kicked us and kicked us again,” Linton stressed.

He stressed further that this is disrespect to the people of Marigot and the surrounding.

According to him, the closure of the Marigot Hospital for the second time is an act of “criminal negligence.”

“You cannot tell me with all of the army of people that we have in the health service of Dominica, that we did not pay attention to the needs of the building to the situation of the building that it ended up termite infestation two years ago,” he remarked. “And now the same building that they have retrofitted downstairs to put the A&E and the Health Centre, the same building downstairs is affected by mold to the point where it is unsafe and unfit for people to be in it.”

He continued, “We are not going to lose sight of what is important for us, what we need in terms of the medical services that must be available to this area and what we need in terms of the infrastructure development that has been denied in this community for years. We are going to move forward.”

Linton is demanding that work should begin on construction of the Marigot Hospital “now”.

“The only language that we understand is the language of now,” he noted. “We understand that it will take some time to construct, we understand that it will take some time to put the plan together, that’s ok, but start the work now and while you are starting the work relocate this medical facility to a proper building.”

Additionally, he said, “Work to be done for the rehabilitation of this temporary facility and the work to be done for the new hospital, no less than 75 percent of the labour cost must remain in this community and more particularly in the Marigot village.”

    DOMINICANS ARISE , WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFEE” isn’t Marigot a village in Dominica and isn’t Skerrit the Prime Minister of Dominica ? What is the ministry of Health doing in respect of that situation with the hospital and why on God’s earth should a hospital reach a stage of deterioration , then tell me what would prevent people from dying and suffering from all kinds of diseases when the hospitals are so infectious ? Prime Minister , Health Minister and Permanent secretary in that ministry are you sleeping or you to do not know how to carry out your functions . Then be honest with yourself ,say so and seek assistance or pack up and let some people with health education do the job and stop allowing God’s children to suffer . Pack it up man , find something else to do, this is not your calling .

    I’m staying overseas papa! Allu people are too much with allu political ineptness and maladroit attitudes!

  3. @% June 18, 2016, these are your words: \”Lennox has never asked anyone for money…He represents the poor,the oppressed,the downtrodden,the young ones who are being violated by our leaders,the women,the men,the unemployed like you,the beggars like you, the crumb pickers like you,etc..So people like me do it for him whether you like it or not.\”

    So then the money assistance which PM Skerrit was or is still giving out, he gave to the GREEDY according to Lennox; by any chance those GREEDY people were the poor, the oppressed,, the downtrodden, the young ones, men, and women who are unemployed, the beggars, and the crumb pickers, whom you have mentioned here? And why did Linton object to that service, if as you say, he represented those people?

    After all why would PM Skerrit hand out money to those whom he knew were able to support themselves?

    Really! Come on now, you people; stop with your false mentality–it is bad for your Nation.

  4. Telemaque I am beginning to believe that you cannot get on DNO with your badgering against PM Skerrit , because there is no truth in it, including that of your counterparts. Who stopped you from hitting on him; because of my comments to Linton–since that is what you said you would do?

    And what do you mean that I just got back; I write at least one comment on DNO, every day; some of them are to shut you up speaking against mine–it seem to me that you may not even able to get on the site, far more to write on the comment board; for example how come your only comment here is against mine–which is nothing but more stupidity; as far as I am concerned.

    Most you UPWites have nothing of substance to back up your Leader, because he, himself is \”fruitless\” consider this and stop with your rubbish here –let me read something sensible from you all, about Lennox Linton; show me that he is a man with the qualifications to lead our Dominica in the future.

      graceful, no one will show you what you already know, stop pretending, or go ask reginald austry, because he is the one who told you that linton was the only politician who came in the arena with a white shirt, You are no better than linton ,because linton will never support those kinds of injustices which you supports,stop singing for your supper ,be independent , for you will be held responsible for helping skeritt to destroy our beautiful country Dominica

      • @truth June 20, 2016

        Singing for my supper! Hehehehehehehehehehehehehe , you make me laugh!

        Whoever you are let it be known that I live in Toronto Canada; I am a citizen of that country–I can choose to die here, but I don\’t want to. And it does not matter where I decide to live, including Dominica, which is my choice –the Government of Canada will still be responsible for my welfare–I am Canadian and Dominican for Life.

        Your words above are the kind of darkness and futility that stands for nothing–PM Skerrit is working by God\’s guidance and control, for the welfare of Dominica and her people. If Dominica would ever go into destruction it would by you and your UWP leader–but God forbid this!

      Elizabeth, I told you this morning; in your E-mail, I do not need to write badgering remarks on DNO in reference to Roosevelt; because everything I write in that private forum, Skerrit is a recipient of it, the same as you are!

      So, one way or the other Skerrit reads, and knows how I feel about him; and I am sure there is no love lost between him and I; that is a metaphor, figure it out. To you Skerrit is a god, to me he is just another ordinary boy from Vieille Case. Skerrit is not a bigger man than I am, there is nothing money can buy that Skerrit has that I cannot buy okay.

      I am sure I am better academically educated than Skerrit!

      Keep on praying to Skerrit, since he is your god, I pray to the one above: I am beginning to loose interest in this, especially in a case where people are allowed to talk crap about Lennox, and when I respond accordingly my comments are censored.

      One person who does not know the meaning of vigil wrote some crap, when exposed the persons…

      • I am beginning to loose interest in this, especially in a case where people are allowed to talk crap about Lennox, and when I respond accordingly my comments are censored.–Telemaque

        Once again, to get on here, you had to use my comment; aren\’t you glad DNO is allowing you entrance on their comment board through me?

        And you just confirmed what I said to you above–I am seeing that you simply got by with the first half; where is the ending to that last line?

        Stop with the lying and the bluffing, as I said to you privately–you are interacting with a very wise lady–you ain\’t fooling me one bit. One way or the other, you are being warned or blocked–acknowledge it and change your ways.

        ” wise lady–you ain\’t fooling me one bit.”(Madam Crapo Elizabeth).

        Well, last night I vowed not to write nor respond to anything I read on DNO, regrettably I am responding to you for one, and only obvious reason; and that is to draw to your attention wise lady, how dumb you are, and your wiseness is only a fraud: And so I ask you wise lady to explain this: ” wise lady–you ain\’t fooling me one bit.”

        If you were as wise you would know that apostrophe indicates the positive case of nouns and indefinite pronouns. The positive case of almost all singular nouns may be formed by adding ‘s. However; only the only the apostrophe is added when the ‘s’ would not be pronounced in normal speech. Figure the rest that go along with that out (I doh is smarts, I doh know) you were the one who were the one who taught classes at age twelve; teacher twelve year old Elizabeth!

The demands are not professional and is done with hate and anger.It seems to be a rush to judgement policy.And all of the demonsrtation and Vigil raise by the opposition is lacking continuity…..The resistance is a weak link.The agenda of want it now is recurring at an alarming rate with consistancy..The motive and Tone does not sound like a common purose but an avenue of malice and pretence.Yet again using the situation with the intend of wanting it now ..Pure foolishness.Wanting it now is not factual…It seems the money will be raise by popular demand ..Let`s wait and see.lessons to be learn…

    To be vigil is a stationary, peaceful demonstration in support of a particular cause, typically without speeches, of all places, in a Christian Church on the eve of a festival, or holy day as an occasion of religious observance. When we use the therm’s Vigils, we are implying nocturnal devotions.

    Let me educate that idiot a bit more; even when we use the therm vigilance we are simply talking about the action, or state of keeping careful watch for possible danger, or difficulties. Somebody should organize a night school in Dominica so that some of you idiots could perhaps get what you did not get in kindergarten.

    Continuation:

    Which now deprives the residence the right to medical attention, and treatment.

    One bit of scum ask “did Edison James build a hospital?” Edison James did not have to build a hospital because the once existing was properly maintained! All of the modern windows you see such as louvers were installed there by Edison James, so be informed and stop supporting Skerrit while he plays in his own feces!

    Some of you like to talk about God: But look at this! An idiot ask Lennox if he used the word Vigil; and that is why God will not do some crap. The idiot does not know the meaning of the word, because they did not spend any time in school, and does not understand the English language. Vigil simple means: A period of keeping awake during the time usually spent asleep; especially to keep watch or pray: if anything it has everything to do with God.

    To be vigil is a stationary, peaceful demonstration in support of a particular cause, typically without speeches, of all…

  8. My fellow Dominicans, when any Government administration in a Democratic Country decides that anyone who does not agree with or support its practices and policies should be victimized, sidelined, maligned and punished you are looking at a recipe for disaster. When thousands of voters elect representatives to be their political voice in the parliament of their Country and there is a specially selected Speaker of the House who maliciously blocks and suppresses the voice of these Citizens through partial, partisan and openly bias mediation you are asking for trouble! When a ruling Government continues to hi-jack election after election by using immoral, unethical and illegal practices to give themselves an unfair advantage then SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN! For those who continue to reap the benefits of corruption and choose to turn a blind eye to those who suffer in their own Country simply for standing on principles of truth and righteousness may God have mercy on your soul!!!

    • For the ignorant or ill-informed who continue to bash the Honourable Lennox Linton it would serve you well to remember and consider that Mr. Linton does not speak simply for himself but is in fact the political voice of thousand of your fellow Citizens. These Citizens may be your neighbours, co-workers, fellow church members or part of your family … even if it’s a distant relative. The more you attack Mr. Linton is the more you fan the flame of animosity and division … the more you say to these thousands of Dominicans that their issues and concerns are irrelevant and that there is only one group of Citizens that matter in this Country. Labourites we get it, your party is in power, you’re benefiting and you could care less if other CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY live or die. WE GET IT! The question is: should those on the other side just go away and hide? Or, should they simply lay down and accept being left out and forgotten in their OWN COUNTRY? We will see!!!!

    The Government of PM Skerrit once again caught the UWP Opposition with their pants down after a very successful by election in Soufriere. So what did they do? Rush to have an all night candle light vigil? Why? Because not even the Representative of the Marigot Constiftuency or any other executive of the UWP realized the Marigot Hospital needed repairs it would seem to á lay person.

    The UWP seeing the Government being pro-active in Marigot by closing the hospital that needs repair and make alternative arrangement for the health of the people in the area and was not because of a. request from the opposition but because the government is working even in a Constiftuency represented by the opposition we now see the reason. They were caught off guard.

    Now if a candlelight vigil was held to demand that the government close the hospital because it was unhealthy for both staff and patients I could see with them. Sadly this will go down as another sun worshipping fiasco.

    Whilst it is a necessity that the hospital be contructed. Linton is good at raising funds. So he better start raising some now because he wants it now and he is their representative. The Government fund raising drive has commenced to but projects is like going to the bank for a loan and so many dot and red tape. Linton need to be realistic and shine in his area. .. he raised so much to pay Pinard Byrne so now is only for himself he can raise money? Lennox do the honorable thing and start to raise the money to build the Margot hospital. Only then will I realize that you are a serious man and it is not only about protest. I behind you on that one. I will donate but the first donation have to be from you and…… . You can do it… you did it before.

It is amazing how stupid and selfish some of you can be to speak about a party that was in power so long ago compared to one that has been there going in 20 years and have NOTHING TO show for it!!!

  19. For more than a decade this (one man) Government have been systematically victimizing the good Citizens of Marigot simply because they have consistently voted against the “blessed” Dominica Labour Party. During these long years these humble Citizens have been patient and tolerant simply relying on the hope that one day this (one man) Government will either see the error of its ways and change for the good of all this Country’s Citizens or be defeated at the polls and no longer be in power. However, year after year, election after election, this (one man) Government continued to entrench itself in the practice of buying votes, importing overseas voters, treating, and using it’s majority in parliament to prevent any electoral reforms that would cause elections to be carried out on a level playing field. NOW, as more and more Dominicans are beginning to get really fed up with this Government it seems like the end of unfairness, injustice and victimization is coming!!!

Have you thought about meeting with the Prime Minister and having constructive dialogue on how the building of a hospital in Marigot can be expedited? As a Leader you need to be more innovative.

What is the crime of closing down a place of health which is contaminated by mold and fungus; who can avoid this situation, except to take action against it–which is the reason hospital was closed down?

    This message is nothing more than another useless quarrel with the attitude of hatred and disunity, full self pride and pomposity, that is the reason you will always face failure; for you continue to drive anyone who would listen to your concerns further and further away, as they are turning a deaf ear to your demands–no one will care to fulfill the desire of a pompous and angry man–that is the way you continues to portray yourself–can\’t you see that is not working?

      He needs to start raising funds as he did for himself to pay Pinard Byrne.

    • There you go again Elizabeth (you just come back) and here you are attacking Lennox again; well although I promised anytime you said anything nasty about him as in this case; I would take it out on your god Skerrit. I am not prepared to give you any satisfaction by ripping that Mountain Chicken Carpaud (Capo) Mentality Sly Eye Roosevelt Skerrit doctor of nothing hart out!

      How can you make the claim that Lennox is angry and is exaggerating. Don’t you think you are full of hate towards that man. When you finish ridicule him on DNO, you disseminate in your words “On Tuesday I posted my weekly message to the forum.”

      Elizabeth don’t you know that Lennox Linton as well a as Me Almost Nearly Cousin that Crapo Roosevelt Skerrit is a recipient of your message? How on earth can you degrade a man in public, while you preach to him in a private forum? I have my reason for screwing up Skerrit, and he knows the reason is he lied to me, Linton has not given you a reason

    • Continue:

      Elizabeth; I have my reason for screwing-up Skerrit, and he knows the reason is because he lied to me regarding an important matter!

      Linton has not given you a reason to dislike him: A hospital which has served the people of Marigot and Wesley for more than a hundred years, is now closed all due to Skerrit’s incompetence, and his blatant hate for the people of Wesley, and Marigot, he and his incompetence subordinates cause the hospital to be eaten to its very core by termites, compounded by mole and fungus.

      Termites fly, especially when it rains, there is no way that hospital could be infested with termites, and it unnoticed until all the wood material was eaten. Do you anticipate the representative of the constituency would simply sit and say nothing. You need to examine your ways, and conduct you see.

      If you are going overwhelm us with your daily prayers, and preaching about God; remember Lennox Linton is part of your audience, so too is Skerrit Tony…

      • \”A hospital which has served the people of Marigot and Wesley for more than a hundred years, is now closed all due to Skerrit’s incompetence\”–Telemaque

        This is the kind of foolishness that causing DNO not to accept your comments on their comment board. PM Skerrit turned 44 years old on June 8th; he has been in Office for only 16 years–read your stupidity above and tell me why you deserve to voice you opinion at all–man you continue to make a damn a fool of yourself, every time you speak

        And according to that nonsense of yours above–you should be glad that PM Skerrit was the one to close down that hospital–your UWP party under Edison James should have done that–why didn\’t he?

        Why did Lennox only decided to speak when the Hospital was already closed down, not only that, he spoke against the closing down of the hospital–calling for what the Government already said they will do. You guys need to stop with your stupidity before it is too late

        Lennox speaks the truth, like him or not he is nor a liar, and thus far proved not to a corrupted cynical and devious person; he does not incite entropy in the country.

        Skerrit on the other hand, publicly told you the red devils, who like to drink blood: that is why you all must dressed in red; whenever you meet people who are not red devils in the streets, in stores, church; on aircrafts, in another country, wherever on the planet; you must get into their faces, and harass them!

        Fight, fight, fight them: “Me” I would like or any of Skerrit’s red devils to meet me somewhere, and get into my face; and you would see what happen. I remember when I was in my twenties: There is a fellow called Shadow a Calypso singer for Trinidad; in one of his calypso he said “ah go burst-up you face, and if you grumble; is now you in trouble.” I would add to that ‘I rip-out you heart!”

      If your family members were facing a serious health crisis and they were unable to obtain speedy medical treatment at the Marigot Hosptial and they passed away while on the way to either portsmouth or Roseau, would you feel the same way? The problem with many Dominicans is this: They do not know when the needs of the common citizen trupmps the petty childish bickerting of supporting one political party over the other.
      Members of the Cabal routinely fly overseas for medical treatment, while the poor are left to suffer and die. It’s unbelievable that some of us have been blinded by this nonsense. You can remove Linton and the UWP out of the picture and the needs of Marigot people have not changed. The comments on this threat is wholly criminal and cold-hearted. This is not about anyone, but the common man, woman and child.

      Elizabeth, you seem to be getting dunce. Back slashe (\) and forward (/) slashes, are not used for punctuation. I saw where you used them accompanying the apostrophe (‘) symbol.

      I thought you taught me in your class in your village when you were only twelve years old. Then again it might not be your fault, that happened to me before, I found out they were generated by DNO site.

      You see I have critique, and defend you simultaneously?

      I don’t want to hear one single word about it from here on okay!

      • I am not the one using those slashes–your fool! DNO is asking me for verification–some \”I am human stuff\”; that is the reason for those slashes; the add it after I use the quotes punctuation–there are other comments with them, apart from mine.

The people of Dominica pay you to work on their behalf and that’s the only power that you should recognize in Dominica,” Mr. Linton advised police officers. In addition, the Opposition Leader warned police officers to focus on protecting and serving the people of Dominica. “So when they have you doing all kind of ‘makakwi’, hiding in bush in the night in fatigue, waiting on a peaceful gathering that is here talking about their concerns they are making fools of you, they are ridiculing you and you need to take that to heart. Supporters of the UWP is that who you have parading as a leader? “The Police Commissioner does not pay your salary, the Prime Minister does not pay your salary.
