dc.description.abstract In Dominica, former Prime Minister Patrick John's attempts at an electoral comeback are met with a stumbling block. Mr. John was jailed in 1986 for plotting to overthrow the Eugenia Charles government. Yet, an angry Patrick John has defended his right to seek public office. Rosie Douglas, Leader of the Dominica Labour Party spoke on the developing situation that has proven to be a bit embarrassing. In Jamaica, angry residents of Wilton Gardens, South St. Andrew, otherwise known as Rema, clamouring for a permanent solution to the upsurge in gun crime in the area. Three media houses collaborated to bring the voices of the people of Rema to the general Jamaican public. In Trinidad, Tony Fraser reports on the contention between supermarket operators and the Minister of Finance, Mr. Wendell Mottley over the causes of significant increases in basic food items. The British travel industry is in full gear promoting Caribbean destinations over other holiday destinations. Carol Bailey, Marketing Manager of the London-based Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO), speaks about growing British interests in the Caribbean, especially in the area of food and beverages. Tony Fraser reports on the recent BWIA privatization deal. However, BWIA's ownership is uncertain since the final agreement had not been signed. In Haiti, President Aristide celebrated the anniversary of his 1991 inauguration for the first time. en_US
