The Toronto Ontario SVG Diaspora may appear to be flourishing by the development of several new groups in the past year, while the 2012 leadership of Toronto’s main umbrella organization splurges on the financial success of the 2009/2010 leadership; whose electoral objective of those two years was to make the 44-year-old lethargic organization financially stable and, as a result of motivating the community, gained their support, enabling a record breaking GIC investment of $11,000, doubling the previous sum of the past several years, closing the year end books with an investment of $22,000 slated towards the purchase of our own SVG Toronto community building in the near future.
As one advocate to another, I must express gratitude to Wade Kojo Williams, Sr. on his observation so eloquently articulated within his article “SVG Toronto community needs fewer organizations, more collaboration and support”, published by Caribbean News Now on July 18, 2012.
Excerpt as quoted: “Off air, Mr Crick told me he sees nothing wrong with present situation and sad state of affairs of the Vincentian community with respect to the proliferation of so-called organizations…”
“They exist only in name, while many Vincentians must turn to the Jamaican Centre and elsewhere for help.”
“And while available federal and provincial governments financial support for certain community programmes are available, our organisations are not organised enough to access same.”
“There is very little collaboration among them, if any, and no services provided to the Vincentian community in Ontario. No office, no phone number, no support services. Culturally sensitive services are not available to Vincentians, particularly our youth at risk…” the reasons why the 2009/2010 leadership’s main focus was to ensure the security of our community funds in an effort to obtaining our own building.
Nevertheless, there has been an absence of financial and committee events reports for the Unity picnic held in July 2012 and no budget for the upcoming Independence events. However, during a special membership recognition event held last Sunday August 26, 2012, at 15 Clubhouse Court Community Centre in Toronto, members were garlanded by surprise with recognition certificates and promises of plaques. Some were confused and unaware of the reason for being a recipient. The fairly accurate 60 persons in attendance were provided various exotic cocktails, for example, pelau served in cocktail glasses garnished with carrots and celery on a stick.
Long-standing “stalwart” past presidents of the established “Cartel” were specially honoured, while many dedicated outstanding contributors were omitted. Specifically those within our membership community who points out the shortcomings of the leadership while holding them accountable.

RALPH E. GONSALVES has been officially accused of sex crimes against a minimum of five women, at least 2 of them accused him and charged him with raping them. He never went before a court to answer these accusations and charges, because the Director of Public Prosecutions took the cases over and ordered them discontinued.
One of the accusers is a Canadian Human Rights Lawyer. She claimed Gonsalves attacked her at his office in Saint Vincent.
Since this woman made this accusation Gonsalves has never traveled to Canada. I am sure some of you Canadian Vincentians were wondering why he had abandoned you all.
Gonsalves has been invited to Canada many times over the last few years, I am sure there is a special welcome awaiting him. Why don't you all convince him to make a visit.
What I write is factual and can be found on any search engine.
ALL YOU GREAT PEOPLE IN CANADA, GIVE US YOUR OPINION ON THE FOLLOWING.
I WOULD LIKE TO ASK WHY NONE OF SAINT VINCENTS NEWSPAPERS PICKED UP ON THIS?
WHY HAS GONSALVES KEPT THE CONTENT, THEME AND CONCLUSIONS A STATE SECRET?
WHAT IN [ deleted 'F' word expletive] NAME IS GOING ON?
February 2012, the 11th summit took place in Caracas, Venezuela, with a variety of regional and international topics on its agenda, the focus was clearly on economic integration between the ALBA members and progress.
All member countries agreed to deposit 1% of their foreign currency reserves in the ALBA Bank, which was founded in 2008 as Latin America's alternative and answer to the IMF. In the case of Venezuela, the deposited sum will amount to about US $300 million, President Hugo Chavez announced.
"ALBA's Economic Council wants to create a reserve fund," Venezuelan Industry Minister Ricardo Menendez indicated. "ALBA Bank will serve as an economic stepping stone to deepen and strengthen our Alliance", he said. This will mean a strengthening of the reliance of the alliance of the ALBA members.
Another topic at the top of the agenda was the common ALBA currency, SUCRE (Sistema Unitario de Compensacion Regional). Created as a means of promoting Latin American and Caribbean States financial independence and minimizing foreign exchange risks. In 2011, 431 transactions in SUCRE took place, worth US $216 million. Its use will be increased in 2012 with all ALBA members expected to switch to the system.
Cuban President Raul Castro deemed the Economic Council to be the most important of ALBA's five working commissions, "because the future of ALBA will depend on its economic success," he said. Raul Castro expressed hope and optimism for ALBA's future, applauding the creation of ECOALBA (Espacio Economico de ALBA).
Nicaragua's President Daniel Ortega said that global capitalism was suffering under a severe systemic crisis, so ALBA nations must continue strengthening and enlarging "Socialism of the 21st Century." All members are expected dutifully to follow the path of Scientific Socialism.
Bolivian President Evo Morales repeated his advice that basic services like water and electricity must never be privatized in any of the ALBA countries. "It should be clear and self-evident that liberating social politics will always go hand in hand with liberating economy", Morales affirmed.
Ecuador's President Rafael Correa admonished that "fair and just economic measures" should reach further than ALBA, they should also encompass UNASUR (Union de Naciones Suramericanas). "And of course it will be necessary for all of us to use one common currency, SUCRE. We must avoid the use of foreign currencies for Latin American trade and commerce," Correa said, referring to the instability of the US dollar. We must all work towards the SUCRE becoming a hard currency to be used commonly between ALBA members as soon as possible.
Ralph GonSalves, Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in agreement of the foregoing, commented that "the only factor limiting us might be our imagination". He expressed admiration for the Venezuelan government because of giving strong positive impulses to the entire region.
President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela suggested that all member states should also create common Armed Forces for regional defense. All members are expected to subscribe men, hardware and funds. ALBA Armed Forces should hold regular joint military exercises. All the member countries agreed on preparatory measures for the formation of ALBA Armed Forces.
The main International topics discussed were Puerto Rico, the Malvinas Islands, Haiti and Syria.
Puerto Rico: A common declaration of freedom and independence from the United States for Puerto Rico was approved by every ALBA member. It states that "the people of Puerto Rico have the unalienable right of self-determination". Furthermore the declaration states that Puerto Rico is a Latin American and Caribbean nation with its own proper history. The nation's full independence must be restored and respected by the international community. All ALBA members agreed to support in any way possible to break the chains of American bondage.
The relationship between Puerto Rico and the United States dates back to the Spanish-American War, in which Spain, under the terms of the Treaty of Paris of 1898, ceded the island to the United States. Puerto Ricans became U.S. citizens in 1917.
Interference in this arrangement by ALBA, and more particularly by SVG and GONSALVES, could be very dangerous for our relationship with the US.
What on earth is GONSALVES thinking of?
PEOPLE OF CANADA, I AM AMAZED THAT WHEN YOU ARE PRESENTED WITH THE TRUTH YOU ARE STRUCK DUMB.
WHAT ON EARTH IS WRONG WITH YOU ALL? TO ACCEPT THE EVIL OF THIS MARXIST REGIME IN SVG WITHOUT CONSIDERATION OR COMMENT MAKES YOU AS EVIL AS THOSE WHO INFLICT THE EVIL IN SVG..
YOUR LIVING THE GOOD LIFE IN CANADA WHILST WE IN SVG ARE LIVING A LIFE OF HELL AND SPITE.
What you think of Ralph E Gonsalves comparing himself to Jesus Christ? [ blasphemy]
What you think of Ralph E Gonsalves saying he working OBEAH FOR THE LORD? [you can't practice Obeah for God, so this must be a reference the Lord of Darkness, Satan]
What you think of Ralph E Gonsalves maligning the organizers of Gospel fest that BEERS are a staple for refreshment? [a totally untrue, and a wicked and scurrilous statement]
What you think of Ralph E Gonsalves DESTROYING PEOPLE IN THE NAME OF THE LORD?
[which Lord, not Jesus or God, can only be the Lord of Darkness, Satan]
Don't just believe me put, any of those phrases in your search engine and see hundreds of results.
When Gonsalves said he works OBEAH FOR THE LORD, he said that in parliament, its recorded in tapes and 'Hansard'.
WAKE UP AND SMELL THE SULPHUR
PETER, WHERE ARE YOUR FACTS?
Where are the five names?
Why do you continue your persistent lying, Peter?
Whenever I write, I quote my sources, and I provide factual information in support my claims. Is there any reason why you cannot do that Peter?
WHERE ARE YOUR 5 NAMES, PETER.
How about providing the details of the claims you made above, Mr Clown?
The truth is that you have no substantiated information and continue to lie like the rest of your cohorts.
Did you Markie Spring, Allan Palmer and the others graduate from the same LYING SCHOOL?
Bring the facts, man, just the facts.
Provide names, Bwoy!
SIMON ANDERSON, the number of five women came from a statement by the DPP Collin Williams, he never gave names, he said he had to disallow all five cases. So would you like to call him a liar. With your permission and guidance I will call him a liar on your behalf.
Just say the word.
PETER, WE WANT NAMES.
That is the only thing that will get you off the hook.
You say the names were disclosed. You say they were printed. In that case, you could find them since this is a matter which is so dear to your heart. Give the names to the reading public.
You are a complete liar Peter, we all know that.
Who would believe you if yo don't have names?
Give us names and details.
Peter, you are a confounded liar.
DAY 4 ....3 DAYS TO GO.
PETER, I asked you a few questions which you have not yet answered. YOU HAVE 3 DAYS TO GIVE ME AN ANSWER, OR ELSE....
If you don't, I will have to answer the questions myself. Would you answer the questions, or should I do the honours?
1) Who is Brian Alexander?
2) Does the name Brian Alexander sound familiar?
3) Do you know Brian Alexander?
3) Are you and Brian Alexander VERY good friends?
Peter, you know Allan Palmer said that I am the Police Commissioner in Bermuda. You do not want to mess with me and the law, Peter.
Commissioner of Police.
Los Angeles Times
"Ralph is a victim of his personality. He has a very informal style," Collin Williams said. "Here they call him Huggingson Kissinger, because he'll greet you with a hug and a kiss."
He said the five incidents to which women have sworn statements were either old or unsubstantiated by physical evidence.
DAY 5 ....2 DAYS TO GO
Peter, you still have not answered those questions. If you do not do so, then I will, and you would not like it, SO... MAN UP!
1) Who is Brian Alexander?
2) Do you know Brian Alexander?
3) Does the name Brian Alexander ring a bell in your mind?
4) Are you and Brian Alexander very good friends?
DO NOT LIE, PUMPKIN EATER.
Remember, according to Allan Palmer, I AM THE COMMISSIONER OF POLICE IN BERMUDA.
COOeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! ANDERSON I am quaking in my boots. You silly little man.
It’s you ANDERSON who told me that you were the Chief of Police for Bermuda, its you that I warned about impersonating a police officer. Have you forgot that?
Of course I know that exactly who you are, and so does PALMER.
I feel sorry for you and I feel partly responsible, my superiority over you is more than you can endure.
Canadian Vincentians, do any of you know this man, he is a Vincentian Canadian also.
Why did Gonsalves give a Diplomatic Passport to a man called Morgan, who was not a diplomat, never worked for the government or any government owned organization, the man was caught at London airport using that very same diplomatic passport whilst carrying a kilo of cocaine.
COOeeeeeeeeeeee! ANDERSON, your arithmetic is based on [dunce and deceiver] GONSALVES double DD principle, seven is more than ten formula, remember that crap.
My time is up, what are you going to do? Show the World now what a very silly little man you really are.
All your crap all your lies, all your spin and evil, lets concentrate on that. You are a nasty wicked turd, you would be a bully if you could find someone inferior enough to bully. Your problem is your trying to butch up your personality that’s a little light on its feet.
COOeeeeeeeeeee! ULP, financial advice available here.
Now here is an idea for those ULP people who need to launder US Dollars, I have heard more millions in US cash arrived.
START A CATERING BUSINESS AT THE MEDICAL COLLEGE THAT HAS AMERICAN STUDENTS. YOU CAN THEN BANK AS MUCH IN ‘US CASH’ AS YOU WANT AND SAY IT CAME FROM THE STUDENTS.
NOW LETS WATCH AND SEE WHO TAKES UP THIS ADVICE.
COOeeeeeeeee! ULP, another laundry shop is available.
LAUNDROMAT TO OPEN AT MEDICAL COLLEGE, WATCH THIS SPACE.
COOeeeeeeeeee! ANDERSON, Laundromat available.
HELP REQUIRED LAUNDERING US DOLLARS, ALL ENQUIRIES TO ULP OFFICES WELCOMED.
PETER, AH MEAN BRIAN ALEXANDER, what happen to the Ottley Hall money?
Brian Alexander, how much money is missing at PH Veira?
Brian, why did the Police pick you up and take you to the station last week?
What questions did they ask you, Brian?
