    Great news indeed! Each little bit of positive information goes a long way. The mantra is “What can I/we do today to make DA a better place than it was yesterday”. I know we can do it!!

    This person does not know jack what is going on in Dominica. I wonder how and where he got the information about Dominica that brought him to that conclusion.

    I guess that they didn’t investigate thoroughly enough to really know how prevalent the use of herbicides and pesticides is plus the poverty issue and the prejudices that exist.

      OMG, they missed this anonymous blogger becuase with the amount of herbicides and pesticide this poverty blogger has, he/she would have just tainted all of Dominica.

      Is a good thing you are out of Dominica.

      Bye…shooo poule

      Come on!! Show a little love!! 66% of Dominica is covered by tropical rain forest, so very little can be drowned with pesticides. The Trois Pitons National Park is Of World Heritage Site status. Our bird species, rare plants, lakes, rivers and waterfalls are the envy of many. Coral reefs and abundance of marine life are all part of our treasure. Patriots unite!!
