Barbados Parlimentarian Dr. William Duguid Moves To Canada – Continues To Collect Salary!

Christmas Comes Early For Dr. Duguid, But Isn’t That Dishonest?

The dear doctor hasn’t been seen or heard from in months – not in Parliament, not at his dental office, not at his home. Not at his constituency office.

In reverential homage to generations of Bajan politicians, William Duguid continues to draw his salary for representing the people of Christ Church West while he and his family are living in Canada.

BLP Interim Leader Mia Mottley says its not so, but neither did she produce a living, speaking Duguid to talk with the news media – who can’t find him anywhere. And Duguid’s heir apparent, Dr. Maria Agard, says she has no idea when he will be returning from Canada.

That’s ok, Maria – his constituants don’t have any idea either.

As we revealed in an article a year ago…

“Barbados Free Press, Barbados Underground, Keltruth Blog and other Barbados-based blogs have for the last year or so seen threatening comments left by a group of persons who are rabid supporters of the previous BLP government. These threats are serious. There were threats to burn down Mr. Loveridge’s business, and these threats were followed by arsons against his hotel…

Many of the threats came from a computer at the Barbados Parliament that is used by MP William Duguid. This was confirmed by none other than the Secretary General of the Barbados Labour Party, Doctor William Duguid, himself...”

You can read some background on the threats and Duguid’s confirmation of their source in BFP’s June 22, 2008 article COVER-UP: Royal Barbados Police Force Ignores Violent Threats To Businessman
