Sir:
 
Identifying Tamils tough task for officials, you said.  Really!  This is just a case of trying to identify
492 illegal Tamil migrants who were brought in by human-traffickers on MV Sun Sea.  It would be a cake-walk
I thought for us smart-alec Canadians.
 
This is a hoot.  Remember, it was not long ago when almost all of Canada was bludgeoning
Sri Lanka with baseball bats and whipping her with horse-whips and cycle-chains for taking long
to identify the real Tamil Tiger terrorists  from the innocent civilians among the 300,000 Tamils who
were liberated by the Sri Lankan Government forces from the clutches of the Tamil Tigers who
were holding them as a human shield for 35 months. Canadians demanded that Sri Lanka release them
from their welfare villages immediately and let them walk onto to the terrain which were pocked with
landmines like a field of mushrooms and no houses to go to, as they had been destroyed
during the 27 year war and not knowing where they can find food to eat, when it was
all provided by the Government in their welfare camps.  That is how insane we Canadians were
and so were the International Human Rights organizations.
 
We were blinkered not to see the miracles happening in front of our eyes.  The Sri Lankan Government
had processed 240,000 Tamils in 11 months  and sent them on to a landmine cleared terrain and newly
built homes, while Canada is going to take almost a year to process 492 Tamils.
Sri Lanka cooked a million meals a day to feed the 300,000 displaced Tamil peoples thrice a day and
cooked by the Sinhalese that the Tamils complain about.  The medical facilities were adequate to keep
away sicknesses which comes with such human tragedy.
 
This is a realty check for us Canadians who have lots of misplaced bleeding-hearts among us.
