    You mean today? Boy will the corrupt and king of stupidity travel to Canada where he will face the press? When he lands there I will believe. DNO if the coward doe travel is there anyway to hook up with a journalist there to feed us with live coverage of Skerrit’s visit? I hope Mr G, who resides in Canada follows Skerrit every step he takes so listeners of W95 could be well informed

    With the kind of regional and international dirt that was on Skerrit last week I am surprised CARICOM leaders didn’t demand the resignation of Roosevelt Skerrit or be removed as head of CARICOM. Is it because all of them are in the same dirty and corrupt boat? They all seem to be corrupt and therefore they must flock together. Imagine what Skerrit would say if Brown paper bag and others like them would ask Skerrit to resign. This is definitely not like in the days of Euginia Charles when she could call on the US to save Grenada . But now a days they all seem to be corrupt and no wonder West Indies is not in the World Cup because lots of greedy and selfish leaders like Skerrit

    That’s interesting you know.
    I hope Skerrit will not play sick or call out the day he is supposed to travel because Canada is very close to the US, and the man is scared of the US, although he knows that World leaders do not get arrested in other countries.
    But then again we never know how the tables will turn because our passports are in the hands of terrorists and we never know how the US might react because protecting their citizens is a priority of any U.S. President

      You don’t talk or write about Putin and Skerrit in the same way, or same sentence or as people with similar traits. There is absolutely no comparism, NONE, between the two!! It simply exposes your ignorance about what you all have in Dominica, and makes a globally loved leader appear to be the same. Go do your research about President Putin and come again. Shame on you.

        Can’t agree with you more than that. It mainly comes from uninformed opposition supporters who view both Russia and China as “bad”, but America snd the west as “good”…

The International WORLD is fed up with you ALL supporters and followers of the UWP. They are fed up with you all mischief, lies and deception. You ALL are like rolling stones that gather no moss. Not even from the regional islands you all get support for your wicked actions. The world have turned a deaf ear and blind eye on you all nonsense. Inteligent people don’t stoop to you all level. UWP is a NO NO. A party of greed, hate, jealousy and wickedness.

      @BWA baday Go on google you will get Trudeau’s number and call him yourself. You keep making much noise as do the majority of you all. Always barking but refuse to bite. Change in Dominica is as easy as calling Trudeau. So which one you want to do? I’m annoyed when people who have no positive plan and alternative to just occupy space on DNO. You can also call Biden’s office and blow your whistle. Everything takes time. I’m sure a case is being built and they want to have all the Docks in a row before they reach for the cuffs. So just chill and don’t just suggest things verbally without any concrete plans.

      I built my house from my insurance money after hurricane Maria. Skerrit had NOTHING to do with it, and that’s the case with thousands of people. Stop your foolishness about Skerrit built country after Maria. You are lost somewhere in Mars, so you definitely don’t know what you are saying,or what is going on in Dominica.

      Any time he steps on American soil more than likely he would be attired in a bright, orange, prison suit. Reason for him skipping the biggest international stage at the United Nations. We all know that the double doctor craves the spotlight.

      Lie Clown, why don’t you encourage him to stop off just for a few hours in the US on his way back from Canada.He is sure to make international headlines again.

    There he is…smirking as usual. Not a word about the passport scandal. Instead he is off to Canada no doubt, as customary, in a private jet, paid for by the treasury. How long are all you going to put up with this disgraceful individual?

      Agreed!! Now tell the World Boss that there are some bills that needs to be paid. Some people are royally fed up of calling the treasury everyday just to be told that the Accountant General has to first speak to the Financial Secretary.

    With a rogue, butt naked corrupt chairperson, it’s no surprise that CARICOM’s standing in the world is so negligible.

    I hope he has a well prepared script so the arm, arm, arm will not be repeated like an annoying refrain.

    He cannot talk from the cuff like how he embarrassed himself in Trinidad in responding the foreign journalist. We wait with bated breath as to how he would handler the international press. I hope they ask him about the overwhelming corruption with the Dominica CBI program and his intimate involvement.

That CBI program thing was planned by you ALL just to end the program and bring down the WORLD BOSS. Don’t you realize and see everything you all tried and continue to try have failed and failing? You ALL are a bunch power hungry idiots. Hypocrites and jokers. Rubbish!

    Increase trade of what? what is the current revenue earned from trading with Canada? Increase investment in what? what investment opportunities Dominica has that the teachers, nurses, police officers, fire officials and ordinary Dominicans do not know about? The moto if not passport then what has been the most brilliant idea to come from Dominica. Are we going to see a passport processing plant in canefield to ship containers to Canada?
    skerrit only use these as photo ops to add to manifesto so he can go boast to his worshipers that he is important and is not Gonsalves but he that is world boss. what do we get in return? corruption, devaluation, mendecancy, dependency, ignorance, division, deterioration, humiliation and more misery. Peter st. Jean said it best. Dominica is ran by an Assets…and it is about time we get people who represent the country, not themselves Arabs and Chinese.
