NATIONAL Security Minister, Hermangild Francis, has accused the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP), which he once supported, of hypocrisy in its opposition to a proposed Dolphin Park at Pigeon Island.

At Sunday’s annual conference of the SLP in Laborie, party leader, Philip J. Pierre, declared that Dolphin Parks are not the answer.

Hermangild Francis quoted Pierre as telling the event that the SLP is against the imprisonment of dolphins at Pigeon Point.

But the minister told reporters he knows for a fact that the Labour party decided to have a Dolphin Park in Saint Lucia, not at Pigeon Point, but in Canaries.

“So, what is not good for Pigeon Point is good for Canaries — and that is the hypocrisy that persons are exhibiting on a daily basis for political expediency and that is not right,” Senator Francis stated.

He explained that the proposed Dolphin Park at Pigeon Island is an idea of Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, and not a fait accompli.

  1. You cannot have a Dolphin Park in Canaries. Don’t take the Canaries River for Granted.
    That River have taken out many Bridges. It gets very ferocious after a rain fall. Go to Pigeon Point.
