Sir:
 
For the Conservatives not to take heed of our diplomats warnings months ago  from Colombo of  a Tamil influx as refugee claimants hasn’t surprised me one bit. 
 
 If the pathetic press release from Foreign Minister Lawrence Cannon’s office after the Tamil Tiger terrorists were militarily eliminated on May 18, 2009 without a congratulatory word when most foreign governments congratulated Sri Lanka for eliminating Tamil Tiger terrorism was anything to go by, it showed that the Canadian government had no will to antagonize the GTA Tamils who demonstrated in tens of thousands on the streets of Ottawa and Toronto  wanting the Canadian government to save the Tamil Tigers from annihilation.  Now Canada is caught in a vice with little wiggle room to get out of this continuing mess.
 
Justine Trudeau the Liberal Immigration critic should be cautious when  he makes any comment on Sri Lanka and the Tamil refugees as he was still a growing up youngster when his peers made Canadians proxy-killers of innocent Sri Lankans when his party for 13 long years let the Tamil Tiger sympathizers collect two million dollars a month to stuff the Tamil Tiger war chest to buy weapons to fight the separatist war in Sri Lanka. 
 
When NDP’s Olivia Chow has difficulty to acknowledge the pristine acts respecting human rights in Sri Lanka when the Sinhalese of all people cooked a million meals a days to feed the 300,000 Tamils thrice a day, who were rescued from the clutches of the Tamil Tigers and housed in temporary welfare camps, she is in no position to talk of human rights in Sri Lanka.  And further it was her husband Jack Layton who disgustingly christened the megalomaniac and serial killer Velupillai Prabhakaran, the leader of the Tamil Tigers,  to South Africa’s Nelson Mandela in front of 10,000 Tamils at Queens Park during a Ponghu Tamil celebration,  to sweeten the hearing of the Tamil ears in the GTA almost saying…Come on, give me your vote…I’ll speak for you people far better than the Liberals and the Conservatives.  This is how much the Tamil refugee issue is wrapped up in domestic politics.
 
The whole affair of the Sun Sea and Ocean lady seems sordid and  you better believe it, there is more fun and games  to come in this theatre of Tamil refugee claimants. Just don’t switch your Channel.
