TWE A 4N DRAIN
by a spciwd Correponewtk
I want to talk here of the current BRAIN
DRAIN, the unchecked flow of the best
minds of this generation out of Dominica
to foreign fields ot opportunity. It has
always happened, Dominica's limitations
and man's desires saw to that but in for
these last three years it appears to have
swollen and flows now with a fury likely j
'o be increased by bureaucratic and mi-
nisterial attitudes, standards and policies
prevalent among us

THE BRAIN DRAIN by a Special Correspondent from Page. One
I can think more obviously of frustrated young men who have opted for
alienation, a quasi-exile and better conditions abroad, and are all
prospering. Messrs. Clayton Shillingford, Simon Richards, finston Watty
had to go and now Dave Shillingford, with a doctorate in: Agricultural
Economics has (even while there is a vacancy for a Chief Agrpicultural Of-
ficer, elected to join CARICOM. And where is Fazal Alexander? And now
Simon Francis, an economist recently returned, has been di missed from
Planning and Development after a few months employ, and is' iid to be out-
ward bound. Why? And now too Jeff Charles, who has long pad his pro-
blems with administrative personnel, and who laboured long pfid lovingly
for Radio in Dominica, has been forced to resign his post, and soon quits
Dominica, Now Herbert Charles, only fully qualified Dominican electronics
engineer, has been refused a contract at the Computer Centre and is off
to Canada. The list goes on.
While it can be said that often it is a question of self-aggrandisemat14
better prospects, personal problems or the like which drive 'ur young and
able technocrats abroad; while it is true that there may be a measure of
egotistic ambition in their move, and that many wish for th` academic life
forever, the converse is also true. To quote one of our recent departees
who while wishing for further qualification expressed to his superiors his
sincere intention to return if he could be granted an extension of his
-It has often been pointed out that when officers get advanced quali-
fications, they often want "big"posts, but that government s got neither
these posts nor the salaries to offer. 1 do not think that after acquir-
ing advanced qualification, personnel always want "big" posts. If cases
could be dealt with individually Government may find that it can employ
highly trained personnel .
And with this statement I concur. Despite the doubts of cynics,
pragmatists and other species of realists -the fact is that there are
many Dominicans who are competent, qualified in modern practice, efficient,
young and willing to return here to help in our dream for development -
at a cut in salary, at an inconvenience in a lowered" life-st e or status
and the burden of an increased work load. They 'would do s6 Wvllingly and
happily for Dominica, because wherever they are, no matter how wql off, how sedure,
how full of expectations, most of them feel torn from their root, post of-them
yearn for the tropics and'feel -no real substance in thbir predehf' situation" They
are materially comfortable, b ut they are always detaclied, 'uiiiivolv0 in their alieh
surroundings. Even if they stay as immigrants it will be ogenerations before their
proeony ,is absorbed into the inewi milieu.
Yet many annually (and as woe shall see, many more this yoar) ill run away
frrom'the problems of life ih-Dominioa and seek solace abroad. And fewer of those
abroad return each year. Why? The following account may -explaint -
The other day I met a friend of mine. He was on 'his way to the airline office
to book a. ticket for TRINIDAD where he had an interview with'the Canadian High' "
Commission Authorities. He i-as going to work and live in Chanada.l W'hy? I wanted
to know, After all he had returned to Dominica a year ago with exqtement and
anticipation. When he"left Eigland after five years of study and work he told
everybody: "I think now iwe have'our own leaders, were an Associat d State heading
inevitably for Independenoee all of us who are hero-should go baolk ;ome to help,
to give our all. We should respond to the call. They need us back home and we
have the expertise".*: Azid home he came. That was a year ago. No he is off
again, t o- Ganada. To work and live. "I want nothing more to do with Dominica or
the- West Indies," he says. "l-aybe they ll make more use 6f me in Canada".
I was sad to hear that. lie is an engineer. A man whose technical knowledge
we need desperately. Why, I sought to know? Why did he have to leave?

TPeople who have no shame always
spoil good society. According to B.$it-
ish justice,there should be a stone
in the gaol for every offender whet-
her Leblanc Labour supporters or not,
Have we reached a stage in Dominica
in which certain rulers are determin-
ed to make dishonesty the only road
to success? I understand that in
one of the villages, one or two per-
sons were caught with almost a truck-
load of Govt. building material -
cement,boards etc.,- and a case could
have been brought against them; then
I heard that as soon as it came to the
knowledge of certain authorities; that
they were Leblanc supporters,further
action was impeded. I was told also
that the A.G. was not satisfied. Can
this be true?
Madam Editor, turning to another
point,I see the Government is commit-
ting a lot of strange acts in this.
country. They are removing stones and
macadam from roads and.puttingsojta=--
rish and a little cement; within a few
weeks, the-whole thing is smashed.
Recently I saw that they were spreading
tarrish oh-the- road about four or five
inches thick and then spreading bags of
cement over'" the tarrish: and then passing'
.a presser over' it. IThen rain falls every-
Sthing- is washed away. s
As far as miy klawledge goes: concerning
concrete usage, I: say this is a vilful
misdemeanouir-, for if you take sand, ainoa-
dam and'cemienf and mix together after
wetting, unless it is properly mixed-it
does not hold afi yherie, uchless to take
cement, spread over tarrish and pass a
roller over it dryi "
I think the time is .ully ripe for
tax-payers of Dominica to raise their
voices as hliigh as th- highest and'call .
on Government to leave Dominica in peace
and go-and enj6y all the taxpayers money
they have. in their pockets;
