    Dominicans are now running out like flies according to this Iranian news paper But if that’s the case I don’t blame them because if it is good for the goose why not the gander? It is a fact that Skerrit’s took his family out of the country he leads long before Erika or Maria. In fact he did not even allow Melissa to give birth to his children in Dominica. Erika destroyed us in 2015 and they did not in our struggles with us. In fact not even Skerrit was here with us as photos show he was enjoying life in Macau, China with NG Lap Seng and gang. Maria destroyed us and yet again PM’s family is in the US enjoying life while we and our children are left in our misery. In fact Skerrit was almost not here for Maria as he landed from St. martin a day before Maria. Tony’s wife and son were in the US, according to Tony’s boastful video. I just cant’s understand why we still have Skerrit as…

    Man proposes and God disposes.
    It appears that there will not be WCMF for a very long time. This is also Creole in the Park ( :?: ) and Jazz Music Festival. It is a disappointment for all concerned. Dominica must be built up prior to these taking place.
    I wonder about Carnival 2018. If it takes place, it probably will not be on a large scale. After the devastation of Hurricane Maria, some people may lose their desire for it.
    Whatever, everything happened for good reasons. God knows why. Therefore, make the most of life in godliness which is what God wants.
    Dominica will be built up in time. Everyone will be back on their feet again, in time.

    Why would anyone want a refund after the island have been devastated? Good hearted people would donated to a relief fund.

    I know Skerrit is married but his wife does not reside in Dominica. So who is our first lady? Who is the the first family since all of his children reside in the US? I mean who does he turn to when he stressed? I can’t understand what’s wrong with our people boy. I mean the man’s family is safe and sound in the US under air condition all day,no mosquitoes or rats to even think about leptospirosis, and so too is the case of his legal advisor, Tony Astaphan, so too is his chief advisor Harley Henry of Barbados, so too is the case of his recently hired economic advisor, who also a Bajan and resides in Barbados and our people cannot see that boy? According to pastor BJ for to sort. They are only here for our money but their interest is elsewhere. Now Maria left us naked and most of our people are stock in the dirt with no food, no house, no work, no water, no electricity, no school, no health center, no radio, no TV, rats and mosquitoes all over while they & family enjoying life?

  6. Wrong is wrong
    October 19, 2017

    I heard my friend peter C on TDN radio today and for the first time I must say I was very disappointed with my friend and close brother. Bro C, you suggested that Skerrit should reduce his cabinet to five and bring in Mr. Linton and Mr. Kent Vital onboard with him because we can’t have an election now? Peter what drug (medication) did your doctor in Florida put you on? Boss you need to go back to him ASAP and tell the prescription has very bad side effects on you. MY friend how do you expect Skerrit, Linton and Kent to work together? Do you really understand that PM Skerrit is very corrupt and can do nothing that is not corrupt? Do you not understand that anyone that gets in contact with Skerrit gets infected? Do you think Dominica can afford to lose Linton and Vital at this crucial time? I know you want to see unity and so do I; but the truth is to work with Skerrit one MUST be corrupt or agree to become corrupt. Skerrit Savarin and the DLP MUST resign now and make way for an interim

      My friend Peter C, as a former government minister I know you want to see unity and so do I; but the truth is to work with Skerrit one MUST be corrupt or agree to become corrupt. In order for Dominica to get out of this very dark and deep hole Skerrit, Savarin, Boyd Knight and entire DLP MUST resign now and make way for an interim government of national unity to prepare us for an election. This government of national unity must not include anyone that bowed their knees to Skerrit in any way shape or form because they will not be trusted by locals or international donors. We need people that can truly unite the country and people with integrity. I suggest a government with the likes of Dr. Christian, Mr. Boston of the DLP, Isaac Baptist, Joseph Isaac, Richard Charles, Gloria Shillingford because she came on Q95 against Skerrit’s will and Crispin Gregoire. I left out Linton, Dr. Fontaine, Joshua and Kent because Skerrit caused too many to hate them I would prefer them elected

      • October 22, 2017

        Your idea is good but there are a few points that would not work your list of persons are far fetch Richard Charles, Gloria Shillingford , now we cannot leave out Linton, Fontaine Joshua Kent they are needed and with the other persons we could have great team ready to move the Island out of this disaster , Skerrit is all about himself and no one else., we just need a group of concern individuals who is willing to work with the people to rebuilding Dominica, so let us all work together to rebuild Dominica and forget about election conversation for a little while .
        The people needs help now.

      People as you keep blaming the PM as if the others you mentioned are perfect. If you think so, “Two wrongs do not make a right”. Remember that the PM had invited Linton to participate some time ago but Linton was too aggressive. Linton hates the PM. Therefore, they could not work together amicably.
      You know the situation. Use your common sense. Do not fan the fire. All of you just leave the PM alone to choose whoever he so wills to assist him.
      The PM is no more corrupt than the others you mentioned including yourself. Judge not that you may not be judged accordingly. Your lifestyle is not hidden from God. Take this and smoke it in your pipe.

      • October 22, 2017

        There is nothing to smoke because if you believe you can help Skerrit stop disrespectful to the people I’m sure he would give you a red T-shirt therefore your words don’t make to much sense , remember Erika didn’t he put a group together that would come together to rebuild Dominica after that hurricane destroyed the Island and do you understand what happened why the Opposition walked away I suggest you ask Skerrit to explain it to you.
        We need all parties to come together and work for the people who put them in office it’s time these men/women understand they have to listen to the electorates, Dominicans are hurting with these childish attitudes after all Dominica belongs to all of us and stop separating the masses , we have to ask ourselves are we the Godly people we pretend to be ? It will take more than one person to get things moving right now , sometimes we all have to get our act together.

    Question to DFC. ( If you bought the ticket in person what proof of purchase is needed? Were receipts provided per ticket sold?)

    Since the following states (The Dominica Festivals Committee is unable to facilitate refunds without
    proof of purchase of World Creole Music Festival ticket)

    • TeC
      October 19, 2017

      Based on what was said at the news conference, I am concluding that proof of purchase in that regard would be the actual ticket. If you purchased a ticket and lost it in the hurricane for example, without the ticket you would have no proof of purchase.

    • SN
      October 19, 2017

      Possession of the ticket should be proof of purchase as you rightly.observe. The problem is very few people will have tickets or receipts if receipts were given along with purchase. Most people may have had these destroyed by the hurricane. That is why I am calling for making a donation of non-refunded funds to the relief effort. This money is unearned income and the DFC should not get to keep it.

    • Let The Truth Be Known - Original
      October 20, 2017

      Well, was your picture taken with an ID? Therefore for proof of purchase, it makes sense that an ID is needed in case your ticket was stolen. This is my simple response.

  8. SN
    October 19, 2017

    In light of the commission being unable refund ticket payments made with cash, the commission should donate all non-refunded monies to relief efforts, since I believe the commission has a record of the number of pre-sold tickets.

    The reason we are going through all of this on the earth is because the children of the most High God remain silent! Those who are Christians should admonish the story of the 1 coin, 5 coins and 10 coins, where the 1 coin was buried and the master was very displeased!
    You have received the gift of salvation before another not for you only but for others who should also come to know Christ! It is His will to save EVERYONE from eternal perish but YOU must respond to the call!
    Whether you like it or not, i will say it as His ambassador! World Creole Music Festival does not praise God! Answer within yourself. Does it bring Glory to God? Its music and humanistic approach is not of God! The bible clearly explains that you are either for God or against Him!
    Say what you will but we MUST die and we MUST bow before God. I pray and hope that we who still have life and the chance take the opportunity!

      At this point, Jesus is very sad. This is because He is soon coming and the world is not ready to receive Him. Since it is not His will for people to perish, He is hurt and Grieved that many will perish but He must act according to His word. Heaven and earth shall pass but His word shall remain! He leads by example and will not change the fact that He will come.
      We have life because of His mercies which are from everlasting to everlasting but there will be and end at one point. Whether it is in our lives here on earth or His coming. You who have life take heed! Why do you reject someone who wants to pull you out of the hands of the enemy? Oh ye fool don’t you see the evil around you?
      God is a jealous God and will not let anyone take His place.
      Glory to God and may His name be praised! remember i was already crucified with Christ so go ahead and continue pounding the nails!
      God Loves you Dominica and Humanity but your ways disgust God. Please obey His command.

        Huh. God let Maria give you a solid cleaning, didn’t he?

        Everyone failed God one way or the other. Much more could be stated about that. Let us do more praying fervently with a humble and contrite heart and pray for others.
        Let us be kind to one another also in words and help in any way possible especially when the circumstances call for it and at such a time after Hurricane Maria. Let us show by our example; not merely words for “Actions speak louder than words.”
        Our Lord Jesus Christ said: “Whatsoever you do to the least of these, you do to Me.” By this we will be judged.

        Joe this is the thing. Everything is being blamed on Global warming…. But what is the cause of Global warming? This has always been the plan of the enemy to use mankind to destroy himself. Think about this .To every time something new comes on the market another comes out bigger and better! Don’t you think that we had enough energy from the salt of the sea, geothermal, hydro, wind, solar…. to power up the world? Why was fossil exploited? What happens to the spot/ hole where it came from? What is the purpose of oil? Don’t you think this has something to do with the plates?
        Everything which happens in the natural is affected by the supernatural. I just pray that humanity realizes this quickly.
        To Visceraangel’s comment, God lets his rain on the just and unjust however, Maria did nothing much to me. I have meat, ice, cold drinks and water and i am always willing to share. His hands were over His children.
        Glory to God!

      God expects that we should have some form of entertainment. You know the saying, “All work and no play makes Jack/Jennie a dull boy/girl. It is how they do it and what is done while they do it.
      I recognize that such entertainment as also Carnival have gone too far, away from God. However, people will still want their form of entertainment. Those who are not pleased, who do not enjoy this sort of entertainment – no more enjoy it as some get older, allow others to enjoy it and pray for them.
      As a Christian Catholic, when I was a young child, Father Superior told the Roseau congregation to make some sort of sacrifice on Carnival days as a means of reparation to God. One of it was, whosoever willed, the Church was opened all day to go to Adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. My parents did it. I did it; some others did. This is no longer done. We now see the results.
      So many have swayed away from godly practices. This highly offends our patient God.
