KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent, May 13 – This country will on Friday get an opportunity to discuss with Canada the visa restrictions Ottawa imposed on Vincentians last September.

Canada’s Minister of State of Foreign Affairs with responsibility for The Americas and Consular Affairs, Diane Ablonczy, pays an official visit to SVG.

The minister will be accompanied by Richard Hanley, high commissioner of Canada accredited to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and will meet with Prime Minister Dr. Ralph E. Gonsalves at 10:30 a.m. to discuss matters of bilateral interests to both countries.

Following this meeting, Ablonczy is slated to make an announcement concerning Canada’s financial support for new projects for the Regional Security System (RSS), totalling CAD$4.1 million.

The event is scheduled to take place at the E.T. Joshua Airport commencing at 11:45 a.m. Gonsalves, Minister of National Security and current Chairman of the OECS will be making brief remarks.

SVG has a long-standing bilateral relationship with Canada, based on trade and investment links, tourism, family and people-to-people ties.

Minister Ablonczy is expected to depart SVG at 1 p.m.

  1. Canada is very close behind America – giving more guns to countries to shoot and kill their citizens. When last have you seen them offering help in building factories to generate jobs for the unemployed? Harper is a redneck and doesn’t care about other nationality, except when it comes to election time. Neither of these leaders can be trusted. Canada is missing 3Billion$ and Harper’s government cannot explain where the money was spent. Ralph cannot explain why Cubans are being paid to move dirt in SVG – a job any 4 year child can do. He also cannot explain where the funds are coming from to pay all these foreign workers, I saw at the Argyle airport.
    Again I don’t trust either. If there is information out there, then point me to it and I may change my tune. But until that happens I am sticking to my belief.

  2. I hope she asks Gonsalves why he has never been to Canada since being accused of a sexual offence by the Candian lawyer.

    Ask him for an explanation, Ms Harper reads this I know, so please Ms Harper ask him for an explanation.

  3. I understand that he got short shrift when he raised the visa situation, she thought he was talking about credit cards, he thought he was talking to a stupid female.

    He got exactly nought from a very clever lady.

    PM did she ask you about the Canadian citizens sex accusations against you?

    PM did she ask you why you haven’t been to Canada since the sex accusations?
