“Tigers got millions from Canadian Tamils: report”, you said.  “Intelligence experts say the now defeated Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam received millions a year from Canada’s Tamil Diaspora”, your news item continued.

This is not  “ƒ”¹…”hot from the press’ news, as it is stale by over 10 years, as we knew it since the early 1990s during the Liberal era, when the then government decided to look away when the mainly Toronto and Montreal Tamils stuffed the Tamil Tiger war chest to the tune of two million Canadian dollars a month for 13 long years. How they managed to collect such funds is another intriguing story. Canadians funded one-third  of the Tamil Tiger operation funds a year which saw 11 ship loads of sophisticated arms being brought in through the east coast, and the purchase of four Czech built ZLIN-143 planes which were converted into night bombers during the famous “ceasefire” period between 2002 and 2008.

What was stunning about this episode was when the Reformers in the early 2000s challenged the Liberals in parliament for letting the Tamils collect funds for their war in Sri Lanka, the Reformers were tagged as “racists” by the Chretien and Martin Liberals.

This was the very reason why the Tamils felt empowered to demonstrate in the thousands in April and May this year, harassing the citizenry of Ottawa and Toronto by blocking streets and expressways and waving a sea of banned Tamil Tiger terrorist flags thumbing their noses at our federal and provincial lawmakers and the police.
