When will Haiti Have It's Own Metro?

Glad you ask... Actually we HAD one!

The Compagnie des Chemins de Fer de Port-au-Prince (CCFPP) inaugurated the first tramway service in Haiti back January 17 1878. The first line, which connected Croix des Bossales with the Champ de Mars, was probably the first railway in the country. Read more here.

Yes, 130 years ago Haiti had a metro, 130 years later, the Dominicans have a metro and Haiti has NOtro!

I will leave it at that, I will let you comment on this one!

Ironically we occupied the Dominican Republic for 21 years from 1822 to 1843. So why are they successful and we're not?

They simply take pride of their people and their country: they love who they are. Remember they too had dictatorial governments (Trujillo) but they did not just put their people in jail, kill them or send them to exil, they also build roads (highway), airports (6), nice clean resorts, schools (universities).

Then they hire us (our people) to work like dogs in their sugar cane

its all motavation tactics maybe those who read it will wake up, its like the man arms that the dominicans cut on tv, did you see it every one is so shock thats ben going on for years, and beside haitians do worst to each other they burn you alive rape old ladys chop you into pieces god knows what else, the world watches so when you go some were, youre automaticly label, we got know one to blame but are selves .so it is what it is im not a dominican lover, were talking about economical growth here, if you want to judge haiti should be a head of every latin american country for being free for so long, instead of building we destroy, even are historical sites are destroyed, most caribean countrys keep there historical sites up to date, haiti after slavery even destroyed the plantations, instead of keeping them in good care and continue exporting and build the country financialy.
