Sir:
 
Your report “Trip to Canada reportedly cost migrants $45,000” intrigues me for several reasons. This is about the 76 Tamil men asylum seekers who were on the rusty Ocean Lady that was apprehended off the coast of Vancouver Island.
 
 My intrigue is bound by simple arithmetic. If the average salary in Sri Lanka is about $150 a month with no over-spill to save, where on earth did each asylum seeking man find that $45,000?  Some seem to be young.
 
Didn’t they know that  with that money they could live a life of luxury at least for the next 15 years spending $250 a month without even holding a  job in Sri Lanka?   Why then come to Canada when the chances are that one might end up flipping hamburgers in a fast-food outlet or being a security guard.
 
If they are running away from ‘rape’ and ‘genocide’ as told us by our Honourable Liberal and NDP parliamentarians during the Sri Lanka Bashing Emergency Debate in parliament  on February 4th evening, why did these men leave their mothers, sisters, wives, daughters and girlfriends to face such abuse.  Or was that “rape” and “genocide” were ill found stories that our parliamentarians promoted publicly to curry favours from the Canadian-Tamils to claw their votes
at the next federal election?
 
If these men were hardcore Tamil Tigers, then they would  not have had  enough monies saved even if they were paid a salary to kill innocent civilians as terrorists.
 
Or were they loaned the $45,000 by the Tamil Tiger international arm that have extorted billions of dollars to be paid back in high interest once they start working in Canada and with signed  contracts to work for them in Canada to extort funds, et cetera?
 
Notwithstanding all these intrigues, Canadian politicians cannot abandon these illegal migrants now, after all to bring over the “raped and suffering Tamils who were subjected to ‘genocide'” was the singular theme of all political parties at the Sri Lanka Bashing  Emergency Debate on February 4th. And let us not forget that the media  too let the Tamils spin their yarns to get their people over during their April and May demonstrations on Parliament Hill.
 
Let them in and bring the rest of the Tamils from Sri Lanka’s northern welfare camps.   Siphon out every one of them   Let’s put our bleeding hearts to work for the Tamil cause.  That was what the February 4th ‘Emergency Debate on Sri Lanka”  in parliament was all about.

    Yes,Asoka is very correct! These Political humbugs needed more and more Tamil voters to face the next Election.As pointed by Asoka, its a well known truth that average Sri Lankan earns around Rs 10,000.00 to Rs 20,000.00 permonth which is around $ 250.00.So, how could any one pays $ 45,000.00 to come over to Canada.The height of the absurdity is that all happened to be Men-Boys,who had run away leaving behind their Moms,Sisters,Wives to be RAPED BY ARMY! What nosence is this?These are all bull shit stories to discredit Sri Lanka for having DERFEATED THE SCOURGE OF TERRORISM THAT PREVAILED OVER THE LAST 3 DECADES.
