And how exactly we are going to “show that we can put our POLITICAL, RELIGIOUS and other differences aside and come together as a people to move our country forward in a UNITED WAY”? By having a day of unity dressed in white? What happens after the day we unite in white? Will we outlaw dissent? Will we make criticism of our stewardship illegal? Will we get rid of the democratic freedoms that justify our place in global civilization?
What exactly is the forward plan for a Dominica without political and religious differences? Emile DePooter does not like the political landscape in Dominica, and so he wants to change it. Our democracy permits that. He does not like the so-called political programs on radio. Our democracy permits that too. He believes all those programs are about “bashing people and assassinating their characters”. Really? I will rest my case for uniting in white on December 30th for the time being… But, I really want to hear from Emile whether the work I do on Between U & Me every week which is tightly focused on the good, honest and just governance of Dominica according to the Constitution and the rule of law fits into the category of talk shows that he believes are disuniting Dominica. BTW, I wore a white shirt everyday this week. Did my Dominican brothers and sisters who hate me for no rhyme or reason, hate me any less. I don’t think so! Last time I checked, we still had the highest rate of SOUTIWEH behaviour per capita in the civilized world. I am ready to unite in white against that anytime.
