Comment from readers:
It is so nice that she can come here on CDN tax payers dollars to do absolutely nothing. I hope she brings up the topic of why so many Canadian people have been cheated out of hundreds of millions of dollars on real estate deals that the DR gov could solve in 2 days if they got off their corrupt butts. On the East coast to mention a few Cap Cana (former VP and tourist minister stole USD 160 Million from Canadian investors), Punta Perla, Roco Ki, Las Dunas, Mar Azul. The list is endless of corrupt developers that this country allows to operate in. If Michelle Jean wants to justify her expense to CDN people in the DR she would bring this up. If not she should just go back home and screw the CDN taxpayer out of more luxury vacations and more dollars.
