Candidate Louis Dejoie campaining in Aquin in 1957

Here is a picture Candidate Louis Dejoie campaigning in the city of Aquin in 1957

In 1957 when presidential candidate Senator Louis Dejoie stated during the campaign in Aquin that the country was now rueing its lack of focus on farming, even as so many of the nation's past leaders had been learned agronomists, he had only been at the start of what would become today's considerable glut of impoverished people. The governments then failed to strengthen the agricultural industry in the country, leading to the immigration of many Haitian farmers, resulting in a "food drain" that still has ripple effects today.
