|Letter: The authors at the root of Canada's imposed visas on SVG come forward!|

Privileges are there to be enjoyed and valued while they are available to us. In the past five years, at almost every event I have attended, it was reiterated by the Office of the Consulate in Toronto that nationals of St Vincent and the Grenadines should refrain from applying for refugee status in Canada, as the outcome can be unfavourable to the country as a whole.
So we all can agree that adequate warnings were given and now we all must pay the price for our disobedience and overindulgence. Through the period of this explosion of refugee claimants, we have observed the growth of immigration consultants, money transfer companies and affiliates and shipping magnates.
Now, let’s take a minute to re-examine ourselves as a nation, who no doubt are some of the most creative and stimulated amongst our Caribbean peers; however, it appears by our self demise, to be also amongst the most destructive. Could it be that somewhere along in our maneuver for success we have become a people of overindulgence for power, the outcome of national destruction through deceit caused by self-seeking strategies?
As a Christian society, the Bible is our guide in all our doings….Daniel 8:25 “He will succeed through craftiness and deceit, become swelled with pride, and destroy many people just when they feel the most secure.”
Let’s face it, we are all in this together, as someone’s astute theory has now impacted a nation. Would the architects to the demise of September 12, 2012, come forward? “News Release -- Canada imposes visa on St Vincent and the Grenadines”. Just last December, The Toronto Star, under the heading “SVG – Is this Caribbean Idyll the Worst Place in the World to be a Woman,” said that “the majority of Vincentians flocking to Canada, seeking refugee status, are women, who, it appears, are fleeing domestic violence.”
A matter which I referenced in my article of January 2012 “Put our best foot forward as a people”, I affirmed, “This is a matter that cannot be tossed under the carpet but must be dealt with as a cultural imperil, especially within our Ontario community; a shortcoming made obvious due to the ongoing struggles to the acceptance of female development in leadership within the main SVG Ontario community organization.”
However, it is my belief that “the perception of today will only stand still if we refuse to embrace the possibilities of tomorrow”.
It appears that these women are “fleeing domestic violence; however, on their arrival in Canada they are exposed to the same cultural imperil experienced in SVG. The question is are we as a people going to take heed to the many warnings and “embrace the possibilities of tomorrow”? Where are our women leaders? Where are our mothers, sisters, nieces the business professionals, organization leaders within our Canadian community?
It is time that we come and advocate to avoid the demise of our island of birth. “Is this Caribbean Idyll the Worst Place in the World to be a Woman”? Is it really that bad? And if not, are we waiting for the males to repeal an international stigma that can only be reversed by us women?
SVG is currently investing millions of dollars in the development of the Argyle International Airport, scheduled to be ready in 2014, which validates the importance for us as patriots to collaborate and do what is necessary in preparation of the national objective towards tourism enhancement.
Contrary to what is considered to be very negative media in the last year, we must be proud that the said newspapers have also admitted in several media releases that St Vincent and the Grenadines is one of the most beautiful islands, a real gem of the Caribbean.
Remember: “The perception of today will only stand still if we refuse to embrace the possibilities of tomorrow.”

MESSAGE TO GONSALVES BYRON-COX AND THE CARIBBEAN VINCENTIAN MARXIST BRIGADE.
IN 2001, PRIME MINISTER RALPH E. GONSALVES ISSUED OR CAUSED TO BE ISSUED A DIPLOMATIC PASSPORT TO A VINCENTIAN CANADIAN MAN CALLED REUBEN MORGAN, HE WAS NEITHER A DIPLOMAT OR EMPLOYED BY THE SVG GOVERNMENT. SUBSEQUENTLY IN 2004, MORGAN WAS ARRESTED AT A LONDON AIRPORT CARRYING A KILO OF COCAINE IN HIS LUGGAGE, HE WAS TRAVELING ON THE VERY SAME DIPLOMATIC PASSPORT THAT GONSALVES HAD APPROVED OR ISSUED TO HIM.
I doubt unless GONSALVES approves of a diplomatic passport it cannot be issued.
I ENQUIRE WAS THIS THE FIRST AND ONLY COCAINE DELIVERY TO THE UK, CANADA OR ELSEWHERE BY MORGAN? THE QUESTION HAS TO BE ASKED BECAUSE HE HAD THE DIPLOMATIC PASSPORT FOR 4 YEARS BEFORE HE WAS CAUGHT.
AT THE TIME OF REUBEN MORGAN TRAVELING TO THE UK HE WAS GOING TO AN EVENT WITH A RELATIVE JUDITH JONES-MORGAN ST.VINCENT AND THE GRENADINES ATTORNEY GENERAL, WHO WAS TRAVELING ON A DIFFERENT FLIGHT.
In 2010, Reuben Morgan opened a Chinese restaurant with his Canadian Chinese business partner in SVG at Villa.
In 2011 Morgan’s Chinese wok cooking expert said that he and Morgan were going to open a casino at the new Argyle Airport.
They could only do so with the blessing of GONSALVES. It must of been discussed somewhere along the line.
The Chinese Canadian having made that statement, GONSALVES got real angry, and said he would never sanction a CASINO at the airport.
One night the Chinese restaurant closed and all the equipment moved out during the early hours of the morning. Everything was shipped out to Saint Lucia, where they have now set up business.
CAN ANY OF THE CANADIAN DIASPORIANS TELL US ABOUT THE LIFE STYLE OF REUBEN MORGAN IN CANADA, WHO ARE HIS FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES?
Now we know that GONSALVES has not been to Canada for a long time, some say since he was accused and charged with sexual assault [case taken over and disallowed by Colin Williams DPP] by a Canadian lady human rights attorney, at the SVG Financial Complex office of GONSALVES.
Are the Canadian officials also interested in why GONSALVES gave a Diplomatic passport to a Canadian citizen, a passport that was used to smuggle cocaine?
February 3, 2006 a “CONFIDENTIAL” cable was sent by Mary Kramer, (then US Ambassador to Barbados and the Caribbean) which refers to bearers of passports to which they are not entitled .
¶10. (C) Comment: The increasing availability of campaign funds to Caribbean political leaders, combined with a lack of legal control over how the money is raised, makes for a troubling situation in a region where many turn a blind eye to corruption. A few hundred thousand dollars, a pittance to a wealthy business person in Barbados or the Cayman Islands, could buy a great deal of influence in one of the small, economically troubled countries in the region. Some of this influence may be purchased to further legitimate business concerns, but as in the case of marijuana growers, or even "the bearers of passports to which they are not entitled", the influence could be used for more nefarious purposes.
In 2010, a bag full of cash, US dollars turned up at the NCB bank, a million US to be exact, or there about. The bank was asked to change the money into EC$s, after due consideration the called his relative and told him to take the US$s away, refusing to change it. Days and weeks afterwards ULP relatives and friends began turning up at banks with smaller sums of US money and banking it. A ULP government official walked about with a huge roll of US$ bills in his pocket, removing it occasionally to pay bills in bars and shops.
GONSALVES has failed to give a credible answer about where that money came from.
That amount of money comes via banks, money transfers that can be checked for legality, not in an old bag. Only dirty money comes in an old bag.
Whoever gave it, did they expect it to be shared out among the ULP hierarchy? or was it to be used for the party? whichever it was shared out by a few.
I am sure the Canadians must be aware of all this, it must also be an unanswered episode for them, as it is for Vincentians.
ALL YOU IDIOTS IN THE DIASPORA WHO SUPPORT THIS CRAP REGIME, IT IS US LIVING HERE THAT ARE BEING TORTURED
WAKE UP AND SMELL THE SULPHUR, YOU HAVE BEEN FOOLED.
THESE ARE SOME OF THE REASONS FOR CANADIAN VISA REQUIREMENTS
Vince N. Tian:
The bottom line is this, Canada has been cracking down on fraudulent refugee claimants for many years; Vincy nationals were warned as early as the mid-90's (my own recollection) against this bogus method to obtain Canadian citizen; Yes, there are few legitimately fleeing possible personal persecution from the 32 island nation; St.Vincent and the Grenadines is still the beautiful unspoiled Gem of The Antilles we know.
If you were paying attention, you knew this was inevitable.
Imposing a visa requirement does not mean that the doors are closed; it simply means there will be a more vigorous screening process. A bit more expensive indeed, but well worth it.
Attaining citizenship from a country other than that of your birth is still very much a privilege. Meet their changing criteria and you'll be fine.

STRAIGHT TALK ON THIS AND THAT
FLASH BACK FLASH BACK FLASH BACK
The following was first posted on this FaceBook Wall on November 25, 2011 at 6:56 am. It was subsequently carried in Searchlight Newspaper and on www.caribbeannewsnow.com. I also communicated with several senior operatives of the Gonsalves government via emails and Face Book chats.
At that time, the matter was also subject of a discussion with Elson Crick on the ULP Radio Show – Shake Up. On that show, the Prime Minister and government were warned that this issue could force the government of Canada to impose Visa requirement on Vincentians.
I knew of what I spoke, because some years earlier I was directly involved in efforts to stop a move to have the Visa requirement imposed on St Vincent and the Grenadines. The then OECS High Commissioner to Ottawa, Lorine Fenton; Senator Sharon Carstairs, Liberal Government Leader in the Senate and Prime Minister Jean Chretien dealt with the matter. Burns Bonadie, then SVG Council General in Toronto, may recall the effort.
VINCENTIAN IN CANADA CALLS FOR REFUGEE SYMPOSIUM
A call has been made for the government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines to hold a Symposium in Toronto to deal with the negative publicity created by newspaper articles in Toronto and on the internet, following allegations by refugee claimants that domestic violence in their native SVG forced them to flee to Canada.
Wade Kojo Williams, Sr., a long-time community activist in Canada and a former President of the National Council of SVG Organisations in Canada, said his calls were made in communications with SVG Consul General in Toronto (Canada) and Elson Crick, Communications Consultant in the SVG Prime Minister’s Office.
He also wants the SVG government to hold information and awareness community meetings on the issue throughout SVG.
“I believe these bogus refugee claims and the negative publicity generated in Canada and elsewhere could have serious negative consequences for SVG in the areas of immigration, tourism, trade and investment and by extension the country’s economy” Williams said.
He warned that unless this spate of bogus refugee claims is checked, Vincentians travelling to Canada may first have to secure Visas.
Williams who served as a community immigration consultant, wants Prime Minister Gonsalves to take this matter up with the Canadian Immigration Minister and Prime Minister Stephen Harper, with urgency.
Williams believes the Toronto Symposium should bring together leaders and other members of the SVG-Canadian community in Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal, along with Canadian Immigration officials and other stakeholders.
POSTER’S NOTE: This advice (above) was rejected by Prime Minister Gonsalves and his government. The government of Canada, earlier this week, imposed Visa requirement on Vincentians.
It is rather laughable that SVG Foreign Affairs Minister, Dr. Douglas Slater, is now – after the fact – calling for discussions with Canadian authorities to have the decision reversed.
Minister Slater could not be serious. His statements reported in today’s Searchlight are plain political posturing.
The decision will not be rescinded by the Canadian Government. And Minister Slater and the ULP government know that very well.
The Canadian government has said in writing that the reason for visa requirements is because SVG's passports are unreliable, they believe people have been given new identities and false passports.
There is evidence of that also.
THAT IS NOT TRUE PETER, AH MEAN, BRIAN.
The Canadian government has said that most persons have lied in an effort to obtain permanent residence in Canada.
Others have falsely claimed REFUGEE status, and Arnhim and Leacock lied in an effort to help them.
Did you hear the recordings of those two clowns.
Just imagine they lied and FALSELY called themselves lesbians and homos to stay in Canada. Those are NOT reasons for the granting of refugee status.
COOeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! ANDERSON the fraud, and liar. What a turn up for the books. It is now revealed that all sorts of people have been turning up in Canada, Africans, Syrians, Iraqies, Iranians. The whole matter is now being revealed. Passports have been issued to hundreds of people who are not entitled to SVG passport.
Someone has quite possibly been selling passports, lets wait and see who.
Peter, ah mean Brian Alexander, you are a liar, and you don't even do it that well.
SHORTMAN BRIAN, you are just an empty barrel with nothing for a brain.
SHORTMAN BRIAN, just tell us what happen to the Ottley Hall money.
Just tell us why the Police came for you on your job?
COOeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! ANDY PANDY HORATIO BLOW YOUR HORN WILLIAMS, isn't it annoying that you still can't identify me, yet the whole world including Homeland Security know's exactly who you are.
Are you not the Chief operations officer for dodgy Vincentian passports, realtor handling safe houses for the terrorists in Florida and New York?
Breaking news, names and original countries from which people holding dodgy Vincentian passports hail are to be made available.
Peter, let us always remember the lesson from our teachers.
"Show me a MARXIST and I'll show you an ends justify the means LIAR.
"ALL Marxists are LIARS. MARXISTS have to be LIARS;being a LIAR is virtually a definitive characteristic of being a Marxist.
"LYING is a REQUIREMENT of being a MARXIST.
"The ultimate goal of the Marxist is to move all of society toward or into COMMUNISM; that 'worthy' goal is the supposedly 'noble' "End" that justifies their all manner of EVIL, in the perverted mind of the MARXIST, and any 'means' at all that may be applied to achieve it - - - which frequently includes MASS DEPORTATIONS, MASS DISLOCATIONS OF THE POPULACE, AND MASS MURDERS - - - ethnocide and genocide.
The SVG TEACHERS UNION and the Vincentian nation recently discovered what we should have known for a very long time, now.
The word of a MARXIST is WORTHLESS and NOT TO VE TRUSTED or in any way depended upon.
SVG-TU now learns that they can MAKE NO CONTRACT WITH ANY MARXIST, as that would signify NOTHING.
IF you want to determine if a MARXIST is LYING, just look for when he opens his mouth and words start coming out.
Our teachers were very perceptive, indeed. I owe these insights to them, at least in the style in which they phrase it all.
Indeed, my patriotic countryman, the follow the EVIL, PURE EVIL, dictum of Vladimir Illyich ['lenin'] that "PROMISES ARE LIKE PIE-CRUSTS, MADE TO BE BROKEN.... THE JUSTIFIES THE MEANS."
Do we now 'see' how come these IDEOLOGICAL SICKOs murder such UNTOLD MILLIONS in the past 100 years ?
Communist Russia, Communist Cuba, Communist North Vietnam, Communist Cambodia, Communist Vietnam, Communist Laos, Communist China - - - all where this DEMONIC EVIL of a political philosophy has led to the BRUTAL EXERMINATION OF SACRED HUMAN LIVES.
Those 'communist liberated' areas of he globe, where they practise ANY THING GOES, THE END JUSTIFIES THE MEANS.
Tools: USEFUL IDIOTS, CLUELESS ELITIST BUREAUCRATS, DISINFORMATION, FALSE PROPAGANDA, LIES, FRAUD, RAPE, VIOLENCE, TORTURE, MURDER, BLOODY 'PURGES', AND MASS MURDER.
WHAT A CROP, Marxist crop, that Ralph Gonsalves and the YOULIMO kidnappers of the SVG Labour Party ARE PREPARING FOR US in once lovely HAIROUNA - - - via their vaunted political philososphy of EVIL, GOD-LESS, MARXIST-LENINIST COMMUNISM. Remember: they claim that the END justifies the MEANS.
Is it any wonder that the VINCENTIAN NATION are practically VOTING WITH THEIR FEET in racing for rescue overseas, in CANADA, THE VIRGIN ISLANDS, THE US, THE UK, AND ELSEWHERE in the traditionally non-communistic world?
The phenomenon of migration was already very significant. But, the spectre of Gonsalves' MARXISM-LENINISM has led to a stampede. Not that Gunzy and the Commies don't really want it so, you know. Who they can't CONTROL, INTIMIDATE AND SUPPRESS, they would 'EXPEL' or 'refugarize' IN ORDER TO GAIN ABSOLUTE TOTALITARIAN POLITICAL CONTROL. They love the existing crime situation in SVG; it will help the Commies to alienate and frustrate the truely discerning nationals. We ain't see the last of it. Things are likely to deteriorate much, much further in the subversive, usurper, SOCIALIST ORIENTATION REGIME-ruled SVG, the part-way stage toward final DEMAGOGIC COMMUNIST PARTY CENTRAL COMMITTEE control.
Absolute CONTROL AND REGIMENTATION IS THE NAME OF THE GAME.
And, Vincentians are endeavouring to TAKE FLIGHT TO OUR BENEVOLENT CANADIAN brethren, and other mostly fellow Commonwealth countries.
Vincy people are RUNNING FROM GONSALVES AND HIS COMMUNISTIC REGIME in DROVES.
Oh, VOTE WITH YUH FEET, COMRADES !
Here is the evidence
Citizenship and Immigration Department Canada
A key reason why the government has imposed visa requirements on St. Lucia and St. Vincent is unreliable travel documents. In particular, criminals from these countries can legally change their names and acquire new passports. In some instances, people who were removed from Canada as security risks later returned using different passports.
There has also been an unacceptably high number of asylum claims from St. Lucia and St. Vincent, with about one and a half percent and three percent of the population of these countries making asylum claims in Canada over the past five years.
More to come, names of Vincentian passport holders who have Arabic and East European names.
STEVE_HUGGINS, thanks for the reminder, we constantly need reminders of just what we are dealing with. The MARXIST regime of SVG comprise all the scum that one can gather from our society, led by what can only be described as the worst thing that ever happened to SVG, DONKEY KONG GONSALVES.
Peter, a concerned, committed, patriotic national of SVG, like you magnificently are, ALWAYS WELCOME.
MUCH-AH-WELCOME, my outstanding Vincentian brethren.
