Leader of the Opposition and Political Leader of the Saint Lucia Labour Party Philip J. Pierre did not mince words when he addressed a Town Hall Meeting at Prospect Place New York, on 10th February, 2018. He expressed the opposition’s grave concerns about DSH. He said that the SLP believes that St Lucians must jealously protect their patrimony – including their land – from exploitation for short term gain and political expediency. He also spoke of the number of projects which he told the crowd had been maliciously and callously stopped by the government. Piere told the crowd that while the Saint Lucia Labour Party has a vested interest in the successful development of Saint Lucia, as the official opposition it has a responsibility to remain vigilant and to fulfil its role as watch-dog over the business of the people.
