Dominica: Discussing the Refinery Issue

“Dominicans are clearly thinking about these issues and asking important questions,” writes Living Dominica, as she continues to blog about the government's plans to build an oil refinery on “the nature isle”.


  • P.M. Rosevelt Scarry needs to be asked bluntly just what part of the island he intends to ruin. Already, that area (I don’t know the name) has a tank farm. Those polute also. What could be done is to photograph the mess already created. I am sure there are spills now. (Do you ever get down that way? Hint. Hint.)

    Oh, it is certainly odd the P.M. has the name of Roosevelt, the environmental President!
