We must care more for each other – Catherine Daniel


Minister for Ecclesiastical Affairs, Family and Gender Affairs, Catherine Daniel is encouraging people to care more for each other as this is something which she says is lacking in Dominican society.

“We must care more for each other; we are lacking that – to love each other without cause and serve each other with diligence and a sense of purpose and pride,” she stated.

Speaking at a National Climate Resilience Consultation recently, admonished councils not to have “lines of political parties and colours.”

“This is community,” Daniel stated. “As I often say to my community, if a fire catches in your place, it wouldn’t take Paix Bouche to come down to Colihaut to out the fire.”

She continued, “You and your neighbor may not be on the same political side but should have that kind of love and caring for each other that if anything happens to your neighbor, then you can assist in that area.”

Daniel went on to say that those who offer themselves for council should keep that in mind.

“If you are not community oriented, it doesn’t make sense offering yourself for council service,” she advised.

    Dear Lady I find it amazing that you did not find it fit to intervene and offer that same advise to the DLP “LARKIES” that you installed in the LaPlaine and other village councils; these institutions were once a proud hallmark of real peoples togetherness and Village development until DLP screwed up the whole thing with their Politics; stop the hypocritical tears please.

    I not lying but the state of that podium is a true reflection of the country. In 2019, doing your national address, you guys insist on using that old furniture that should have been retired after Maria. So much good wood laying around, put our wood workers to use and have them build a lovely podium for when you guys come to make your speeches.

    Woa! Woa! Woa! Catherine! Good advice. Very good advice. Is it because Melissa cared for the people of Roseau Central so much that she served them weevil infested rice, past and flour amongst other expired supplies? Has Skerrit, your political god, shown any care for the Dominican people when he with held much needed supplies sent to Dominica after hurricane in 2017 and used them as political bribe? Has your government shown love, care and concern for Dominicans when they began houses around the island knowing that they had no funds for their completion however did so just to advance their political ambitions? What love, care and concern have you shown for others when you pocket a hefty salary every month while the minimum wage which most Dominicans receive is less than $5.00 an hour? Seems like now that elections are around the corner you labor people are singing the right song but from the wrong hymn sheet. We will heed your advice however we will VOTE you and your labor GOONS OUT.

    Always coming with something making you look innocent, but you are steeped deep inside the mess that has brought us to where we are today. Target the wicked ones in your camp, and expose them. Then you will have credibility.. Hypocrite!!

    Catherine Daniel, I think that you have consulted Satan and the Judas` for too long for you now this educated well known Dominican, (as I respect you for your work, we know each other), but you now have Skerrit reducing you to the abyss where he belongs. You are more qualified, educated professional than Skerrit, we know and you now talking this crap to us Dominicans who are crying out for a change. Madam, please relax, wake up get your decency back and too hell with Skerrit….Get the hell out of that company and be this professional you are, not for Skerrit, he has failed there, but for your village and people of Dominica.
    Welcome Hob Lennox Linton and his highly professional Team. Team Dominica.

    “…..as this is something which she says is lacking in Dominican society…”
    Daniel, the devil is before you, right in front of you at that Minister where that thing is lacking. What is lacking are the followers and please leave our faith church religion out of it. It is a human disaster…go ask Skerrit, your failed leader who has failed us and our Dominica big time.? Your lecture is not making sense and will not appease us. Please go get rid of this failed Skerrit and the more you all put these nonsense on DNO, the more you all expose your assets and thievery and Bobol. Do not even attempt to buy and fool us, it will not work again. Get that weird failure Skerrit out of office. Skerrit must Go. Daniel, what on earth, an intellectual like you doing in the company of Skerrit and his outdated ministers 19 failed ministers? Skerrit is a disaster, he has caused our nature lisle, blooming with agricultural products, sold all over and today Skerrit killed it. Skerrit Go Get Lost. U…

    Catherine, though I applaud your words, I also want to tell you that you should have mentioned names and let them know that they in your own party are the ones who started the divisiveness that we are seeing going on in Dominica.
    You were very happy that you could pay off your loans and send your child overseas when Skerro ask you to run for him in Colihaut and that is the only reason you are running today , so take a look in the mirror and ask your self if you are truly genuine about the things that comes out of your mouth.
    Have you atoned ?

    You are so right minister Daniel and please allow me to give some suggestions no how we can care for each other more. 1.Give building materials only to those who support the government and pay workers to cover their houses while their neighbor who does not, remain under tarpaulin. 2. only give projects which Dominicans can do to foreigners, or those who support us like concreting the roads in goodwill. 3. wherever we meet those who do not support us, even in church or funerals, go to their face and call them traitors. 4. whenever people ask the prime minister where he gets money? tell them go to hell, it’s none of their Dam business. I’m sure you have a few more suggestions.

    Absolute empty rhetoric! The hypocrisy emanating from this lady’s mouth is palpable. The current government’s policies, actions and words have fragmented the country. Victimization, discrimination and persecution is rampant. Lady, pick the fly out of your eye then you’ll be able to see clearly to take the gravel out of your brother’s eye. This message should be directed directly at your party hacks. Have you listened to your fellow comrades on the government side of the aisle in parliament? Have you told this to foul-mouthed Ian Douglas or potty mouthed Tony Astaphan? Did you chastise your snake-tongue leader? Have you rebuked the DLP bellicose and belligerent dwindling supporters? Direct that message to your party’s miscreants.

    …says a person who is loyal to the crime minister who once told his supporters to hunt down supporters of the opposition and call them traitors. But then again these government people don’t know if they are coming or going.

    Word on the ground is that you are not being heard, hence the reason of this article. To be honest Colihaut people already forget that you are their representative.
    Its time for you to gracefully step aside
