Haiti - FLASH : The inauguration of the irrigation canal in Haiti postponed
The inauguration of the irrigation canal in Haitian territory, announced by the Ouanaminthe medias, which was to take place on Saturday, November 18, to commemorate the 220th anniversary of the Battle of Vertières, was postponed "sine die" by those responsible for the construction site due to delays accumulated in the construction of the canal for the irrigation of the lands of the Plaine Maribaroux from an intake on the Massacre River.

Edwin Paraison, the former Consul of Haiti in the Dominican Republic, confirmed the information on his "X" account (ex Twitter), where he wrote "Contrary to what was announced, the work in progress does not allow the inauguration of the Ouanaminthe canal on November 18. (day of the Battle of Vertières), there is no new date set."

Work on the canal was initially suspended due to the lack of construction materials (blocks, iron and cement), usually purchased on Dominican territory and subject to an embargo from the neighboring Republic https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-40698-haiti-flash-partial-reopening-of-the-dominican-border-new-measures-and-an-embargo.html , but also due to the flooding of the Massacre River which partially flooded the construction site and damaged the dam, a key element of the project https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-40895-haiti-news-zapping.html
