A Canadian man who was robbed on Monday (July 13) by two bandits on Water Works Road, Castries said he is disturbed by some comments made about the incident and has a serious message for his attackers.

Geordie (only name given) said he was not looking for drugs or interested in any other criminal pursuits, as suggested by a few Saint Lucians.

Rather, he was awaiting pickup at the guest house he was staying, when he was attacked and robbed.

“I came to Saint Lucia on business to provide technical support and training for employees at one of our customers, which in turn will improve skills and efficiencies leading to higher production, more business investment, and create job opportunities,” he told St. Lucia News Online (SNO).

Geordie said he is usually cautious in the area, but wasn’t expecting that he would be attacked that day.

The foreigner pointed to one of the comments which he finds disturbing. It reads: “Fooled by antics of this Canadian…Are you for real?”

He said, “I was struggling to save my butt and you call it antics. I received injuries from this situation.”

The foreigner also had a message for his attackers, “To the two young men who attacked me, I will not forgive you for the concern and anguish you have brought to my family. The loss of personal items, which are of sentimental value, can never be replaced. I hope you realize and understand the path you have chosen and that you find guidance away from it. This type behavior only worsens the future tourist and business situation in the area. Many people rely on the industry for their existence and enjoyment of life.”

Nevertheless he said, “I must say thank you to all the positive comments from the people of St Lucia regarding the situation I ended up in. I was told by people that this incident is not normal for the island and they apologized to me. This is very touching to me, thank you again. And thank you, to the bakery personnel who came to my aid.”

Meanwhile, the foreigner said he was informed of an appointment with the Ministry of Tourism for Wednesday and was looking forward to the meeting, to clarify his intentions in Saint Lucia.

However, for some reason they did not show or called to apologize for missing the appointment, or to reschedule. “I guess it is not an important tourist or business event to be concerned about,” he said.

The man was robbed of his gold chain and a cellular phone, among other items.

  4. There's crime everywhere but the volume reported on this website for this tiny speck in the Caribbean Sea is outrageous.
    Apparently all the ills and few of the positives of the big bad world out there has washed up on our shores.
    I expected progress when I left here years ago, not copy cat of the worst behaviors out here. There's been more murders committed in St.Lucia than Orlando and tampa this year.

  5. It's with great regret that we at Toronto GroupTours have cancelled all of our 20 groups of 30 persons who were to visit this island called St Lucia in the month of August 2015 . Instead we shall be sending our valuable guest to Dominica where they wouldn't be robbed or killed . Your government and police have shown no interest with the safety of Tourist or citizens of your island . May God be with you'll .

    • I wouldn't be surprised if some Canadians cancelled their trips to St. Lucia but this comment smells fishy, to me, if it were legit and they really wanted people to know their view on how the government and police have handled this case, they would have written directly to the news site or posted this on a wider forum, a comment at the bottom of an article hardly seems like the best place for that IF they are in fact who they are claiming to be. This comment just stinks of someone trolling the comment section for reactions.

  10. love my land love my people but there are to many people creating problems. breaks my heart to see heartless people who kill and hurt others for material objects. seems that we are living in a hopeless nation where all matters of evil runs rampant!! some people dont think cause they dont care. no spirituality!! a lack of conscience!! taking pleasure by hurting and making others suffer!! when did we reach this point? is there a turning point? we have children around what are we teaching them? what type of future do we imaging for them? too all the criminal elements open your hearts and feel... feel your family!! your friends!! feel the stranger that is amongst you who are willing to help you out of love and mercy. want to say to the gentleman who was violated im so sorry for your experience... like to share with you thats not the way our for fathers wanted it for us, they worked so hard to instil morales and values in us with severe punishment, all out of love and honesty. we are a great people searching our hearts to find our way home, we must rid our minds of vanities and fantasies till then we cannot see and appreciate true love. we live in the nature let us appreciate life, let us humble ourselves, take patience, respect one another, find ourselves. let us grow the children in the right way so they can treat their guest with a mutual love and respect.

  11. Another reason the visa requirements will remain on St Lucians visiting Canada. The government don't give a rats behind. What a shame, five of us from Nova Scotia cancelled our vacation after reading the article in the Canadian media

  12. I agree with the Canadian Man. It's time for Lucians to stand up and say enough to the crap people do with everyday. Look how government can't even be bothered to speak with him.

    Too many women aren't up to the job of being mothers. Same goes for the men. Always absent and setting bad examples.

    Bring up your children properly so people can live in peace. Lucians have more things than ever but we have worse manners than our parents and grandparents.

  13. Shame on the St. Lucian officials for not taking this serious. News of this is reaching international places (I'm in Canada) and this will not help the economic situation of your country.

    • In the great scheme of things this is not normal, you as a hotel owner are not helping.

  14. I bet if he did shoot one dead or both they would have made the time. Next time get ur fire arm. Your on business n need to be protected. Once u don't feel safe and there's no guarantee there's police officers in the area to protect you. Do what you have to do to keep yourself safe. Ignorant st.lucia ppl always beat up their ass saying what they want. Let it happen to the, if they not the one doing it and see how they bowl out about the government. That's why the others pay for these idiots mishap. Soon there will be more taxes added to ye make up for the mone not coming in to help the country stain itself.
