Sir:
 
Prime Minister Stephen Harper said at a Mississauga event on Tuesday,The federal government “will not hesitate to strengthen the laws” in order to tackle the “trend” of would be refugees arriving in Canada via
 people-smuggling ships.
 
Sorry Mr. Prime Minister, now that we have lost the grip on the refugee determination system, what I had expected you to say was, “The federal government will strengthen the laws to tackle the trend of would be refugees arriving in Canada in human-smugglers boats.”   Let us not be iffy about our decision.  Let us be strong and decisive.
 
I hope the Prime Minister, the Parliamentarians and the whole of Canada who blasted Sri Lanka for taking 11 months to process 260,000 of the 300,000 Tamils who were kept in welfare village camps  last year after having  been liberated from the clutches of the Tamil Tigers who hoarded them as human shields, took notice that Canada took three months to process the
76 Tamils who arrived on Ocean Lady last October, and now reckon that it will take about six months to process the 492 Tamils who arrived on Sun Sea.
 
Little wonder why puny Sri Lanka  who came out of a nasty 27-year war which saw over 100,000 dead told Canada  when we were bashing her to let go of the Tamils immediately, to go to the prairies and fly a kite where the sky is bigger than the land.  That is how unfair and perverse we Canadians were towards Sri Lanka.
 
Sri Lanka had a problem.  They had to guard its sovereignty and sieve out the terrorists from the innocent civilians, and register them , and clear the million  land mines that were planted by the Tamil Tigers who were running for their lives, and reconstruct and build new home for the Tamils to go to and reconstruct the infrastructures which had been destroyed by the war.  That was sensible.  That was an intelligent thing to do and not cave into the call of stupidity of the bleeding hearts of Canada and  those around the world.
