Toronto (aka T.O., aka T-Dot, aka The Dot), is the most populous city in Canada and the provincial capital of Ontario. It is located on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario. With over 2.5 million residents, it is the fifth most populous municipality in North America. Toronto is at the heart of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), and is part of a densely populated region in Southern Ontario known as the Golden Horseshoe, which is home to 8.1 million residents and has approximately 25% of Canada's population. Toronto is one of the world's most diverse cities by percentage of non-native-born residents, as about 49% of the population were born outside of Canada.

Fuck The Police

Beating up drug dealers and stealing their money. Demanding cash from bar owners. Associating with convicted criminals. Visiting casinos while on duty. Extortion, obstructing justice, assault, theft, perjury, corrupt practices. These are the actions of "Toronto's Finest". It is a known fact that 'standard' police practice within poor communities would not be condoned or tolerated in affluent neighbourhoods, in which they are there to surve and protect, where as they act as an occupying army within poorer areas. The manner in which they conduct themselves when confronted by the media is a total facade and a far cry from the disrespectful and almost intimidating manner in which they address youth in marginalized areas. Youths from visible minorities in poor areas are approached with disdain and a 'guilty until proven innocent' attitude. They treat uncles, aunts and cousins of accused gang members as crminals in their politically motivated sweeps, regardless of their background (and then have nerve to ask these same people for info). There is no "wall of silence" within poor communities. The only "Wall Of Silence" that exist is the one within the Police hiarchy, which is more detrimental to bridging the gap between poor communities and police than ANY rap lyrics.

Stop Snitchin'

StopSnitchin2-11.jpg


Even though destain for snitches can be found within EVERY ethnic community (e.i. Italian underworld code of Omertà, Triad and Biker syndicates etc.), the media and police brass constantly attempts to label this as a problem strictly confined to the black community. In the midst of all the sensationalism and misconception, the true meaning of the word "Snitch" has been misconstrue by popular culture and the media. Let it be known that a person reporting criminal activity in their neighborhood is NOT a snitch. That would be a CONCERNED CITIZEN. Someone that gives an ACCURATE account of a crime is called a WITNESS.


Snitches are the government-made parasites that drop a dime on people for a reduction in prison time, a get-out-of-jail credit, monetary payment, or a hit of crack.When necessary, these foot soldiers in the so-called “War on Drugs” embellish the truth. Quite often, they fabricate stories. Snitches are responsible for nearly 46% of wrongful convictions from false testimony, according to a study by Northwestern University Law School's Center on Wrongful Convictions. They are also the reason that innocence commissions across the country have concluded that snitch testimony is false and unreliable. Snitches are CRIMINALS hustling the system.


The media and police P.R. are creating the illusion that the crime epidemic is fueled by the black community’s reluctance to cooperate with police investigations. To be quite sure, honest people are not conspiring with criminals in some imaginary code of silence. The average residant of Ontario Housing (especially visable minorities) are just as concerned as those in affluent/middle-class areas about drugs and crime in the city. But (with good reason)people in poor areas are a little closed-mouthed when it comes to talking to the police, which can probably be attributed more to the fear of dishonest police than the fear of retaliation from any gang.


Depicting the black community as a bunch of apathetic hedonists with questionable values, spooked by the thought of assisting the police in any way for fear that they would be labeled a snitch and assassinated surves the police and the media's agenda by painting the victims as the perpetrators.


In black and poor communities the police are not trusted, and for good reasons. Police lie, plant evidence, and strong-arm residents more frequently than anyone will admit.

Caribana

caribana%20003.jpg

Every summer, Toronto blazes with the excitement of calypso, steel pan and elaborate masquerade costumes during the annual Caribana Festival.

Caribana, celebrating its 38th anniversary in 2005, is the largest Caribbean festival in North America. Presented by the Caribbean Cultural Committee, the two-week Festival attracts over a million participants annually, including hundreds of thousands of American tourists (NBA star Shaq comes every year).

Among the highlights is the Caribana Parade, one of the largest in North America. Thousands of brilliantly costumed masqueraders and dozens of trucks carrying live soca, calypso, steel pan, reggae and salsa artists jam the 1.5 km parade route all day, to the delight of hundreds of thousands of onlookers.

Other keynote events include the King and Queen of the Bands Competition and the two-day Olympic Island Caribbean Arts Festival. Outdoor concerts of Caribbean music, calypso harbour cruise parties and glamourous dances round out the entertainment roster.

Caribana was created in 1967 as a community heritage project for Canada's Centennial year. Based on Trinidad Carnival, the Festival now also includes the music, dance, food and costumes of Jamaica, Guyana, the Bahamas, Brazil and other cultures represented in Toronto - the world's most culturally diverse city.
