Letter: Question: Did a former St Lucian minister lose millions in farmlands in Canada?
Published on April 12, 2012Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Sir:

The law of nature is the law of man. For years and even during the last general election in St Lucia in 2011, there has been constant talk about former ministers of government in St Lucia joining the millionaires club overnight.

Denials have been constant time and again, along with former government ministers making surprise visits to North America and Canada, claiming to be on vacation or on personal business.

Information on the wires is such that farmlands purchased in Canada in a relative’s name (now deceased earlier this year, 2012, (may she rest in peace) on behalf of a former minister of government now in opposition will remain in the deceased’s estate.

It is not funny how history repeats itself in politics -- you follow, if I can borrow this paraphrase of the St Lucian dialect.

This has not gone down well with the former minister, who has been in Canada until recently, for weeks on end trying to rectify this transaction to no avail.

Who is this former minister? Will the real owner please step up?

And, upon becoming minister and joining the millionaire’s club in quick order, while being a government minister for only five years, where did the money come from?

Not only will the former minister’s wings be clipped for a while, he may very well have to play nice guy with the present government and level with the people of St Lucia, among others.

He should have bought an estate in his country and not elsewhere, could have created employment for a few of our youth.

Better investment choices next time Mr. Minister.
