    • .3%, what is there to feel confident in a number which is statistically insignificant? It must be sustained.


  2. Get real.
    1% in the USA, 1% in Canada, 1% in Barbados.
    USA 310, Canada 34, Barbados 0.28

    There is value in a plus no matter how small and context is important as shown below.

    280,636 permanent residents entered Canada LAST YEAR.
    That is the entire population of Barbados.

    Barbados should make Agriculture, Food security and Energy alternatives and conservation a priority.
