Firstly let us get the facts straight, the Centre itself is not in Regent Park! It is north of that area and also serves kids and teens from “Old Cabbagetown” or West Riverdale. Regent Park itself has its own community centre and soon will have another new location once the swimming complex and then another community centre will be built (the old one on Sackville St. will be torn down).
Here is a copy of an article published in the “Metro News” yesterday, March 2nd 2012. http://www.metronews.ca/toronto/local/article/1112878–self-defence-classes-provide-a-source-of-empowerment
To say that Regent Park has many venues for young boys and few for girls is false. There has always been many co-ed activities and resources and others exclusively for boys and girls.
The “Sister 2 Sister” is a movement that caters to African-American girls in the United-States. It may not be exclusive to Afro-American girls. I did not look up their criteria or participation rates.
I find it pleasant to hear that within Regent Park itself there are 200 13 year-old girls. With that one can assume that the numbers for those of the ages of 9, 10, 11, and 12 would be close to the same. Hence my epqgirls would all be close to my domicile. A real Green initiative!
The drawback is that most of the now residence of that area either Black or from the Middle-East (Muslim). They would not be a true representation of peoples of the world. My goal is to have girls from all over the planet and not only representing 2 or 3 regions or few religions/cultures.
To say that they do not need a “Prince” to sweep them off their feet is true but those who are teaching them are followers and obedient of the present Capitalistic regime with their so-called “leaders” and “doctrines” agenda. That very venue which is destroying the planet.
I somehow see this as an attack at myself and what I am trying to establish or pass on to the worlds people. Is epqanna, Project 10 Billion, or myself, and my teachings/ideas/plans/Visions starting to trickle down to the Changelings? I hope so. I’ve been working on it for close to a decade now and it is “silence reigns supreme”.
It is very frustrating to know so much and have confidence in the solutions I bring forth and at the same time be ignored for so long. It will not make me into a cruel or vicious monster. I will keep doing what I’ve always done, “The Pen is Mightier then the Sword”, write!
How nice it would be for me to be invited to an exclusive closed session talk to a group of these “Sister 2 Sister” to tell them the truth about what they are, and could be, participating in instead.
I am not trying to be a “Prince” rescuing them but an informant about ethical Global politics seen and understood from an evolutionary perspective. A real teacher on how to best save the planet from Mankind’s present destructive path/ways.
Great, I myself also wishes that most of my girls (and every other person) would one day become doctors in one field or other but in the present way we are proceding, it will not happen.
One of the girls in the article wants to be a doctor. Great! I wish her the best but the odds are stacked against her and many others. It is a question of opportunity and wealth more then anything else.
No I would not like to have all of my 1,000 epqgirls come from or live in Regent Park as we would not have any Jewish, Japanese, Greek, and many other cultures/countries represented.
Same old story is it not!
