Sir/Madam:

Avinash Gavai asked the Sri Lankan Minister Vasudeva Nanayakkara who was visiting Ottawa recently: “What about mending fences with the very large politically active Tamil Diaspora here in Canada?”

Among the many possible answers to this pertinent question this response too should be thrown into that mix.

As long  as the Tamil Diaspora still have members of their family to be brought into Canada on the family reunification programme; as long as some members can fast track to become millionaires by being involved in the million-dollar business of human smuggling; as long as the Tamil Diaspora can become agents to earn thousands of dollars by procuring arms for their armed conflict; as long as the Tamil Diaspora finds it lucrative to bilk Canada’s social welfare system when the social welfare cheque is much more than what they would earn in Sri Lanka for a month; as long as members of the Tamil Diaspora can sell a forged Canadian passport with immigration documents for up to $40,000; as long as some members of the Tamil Diaspora can become millionaires quickly from credit card skimming,  some of the Tamil Diaspora will keep churning the pot and keep it in the boil,  while some Tamil political organizations will collect monies by forcing Tamil families to pay up into their funds  from which they withdraw as their monthly pay cheques and  also fund the NGOs  to help their cause, and  contribute to parliamentarians election funds  handsomely to keep their cause active at international fora.

 As long as these elements are at play, the Tamil Diaspora have no reason to mend fences with the Sri Lankan government or the majority Sinhalese in Sri Lanka or Sinhalese-Canadians  in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Ottawa, where the majority of the Tamil refugees live.

    Asoka these responses are common to most other countries where Tamil Diaspora still have members of their family living in SL and wish to bring them under reunification programme of each country. After Independence to Sri Lanka [then Ceylon] Tamil Nadu people came in boats to North. We call them “Kallathoni”. After 1983 these Tamils in north & Tamil Nadu are in business of human smuggling to many country. In short today cause of Ealam is million-dollar easy business Tamil Diaspora in SL & India.
