I would not even comment on what goes on in Canada. But surely in the late 1800's many Macedonians were coming over as members of the Exarchate??

Indigen, before 1960 there existed small village organizations, MPO was the only real "big" organization until the United Macedonians started up. If you research the MPO, you will find that the majority of it's member came from a certain area of Aegean Macedonia. There were others in Canada at the time from other areas of Egejska who had nothing to do with MPO. As Risto alluded to, you have to consider their sphere of influence back home, ie who ran the churches and schools.

I was looking for more of a confirmation form RTG that this particular individual knows what he is talking about, rather than a name lol.

I did not even know who you were alluding to.
Further, (now that I do), I would not think Tashkovic would be the foremost authority on matters such as this. Not taking away anything from him but I just did not think he would work in those spheres. There is significant difference between being intelligent and being informed.

the mpo was the right wing fascist leaning orgnisation as it would have been if it was pro bulgarian there existed another the mp league who after the ww2 were destroyed by the us for being un american.

the bitovs have contributed to the macedonian cause vangelovski, they are not untainted by their association with the old mpo, but they are patriotic active and generous to the cause.

Point is, GT always finds himself as the "go to" man and is privy to info that most are not privy to.

If you spoke to him on such matters, you would conclude that he has an abundant knowledge on the issues, but chooses to focus on other areas.

Thanks Osiris, that's what I was trying to say. I may have gotten there eventually

haha I'm sure he is getting better.

To be honest- I know some big Macedonian activists that can not speak Macedonian ... I don't think that's a pre-requsite.

Osiris,

Seeing as the Bitove's are supporters of UMD, and financially backed the pro-Gligorov Macedonian World Congress (a cheap and ideologically flawed imitation of Todor Petrov's WMC) in the early 90's, I'm not entirely sure which "cause" they support.
