Minister Kenney: Let’s get this right.  NO, you did not have “a news conference with Sri Lankan media in Toronto”.  What you did have was a news conference with the Sri Lankan-Tamil media in Toronto.  And that was the rub and you got screwed by your Toronto Tamil friends.  I am still pissed off and I will never forget this incident.  Are you now going to correct this deliberate incident by calling a round table conference with the Sinhalese-Sri Lankan Canadian media in Toronto?  There are several of them.   Stop trying to white-wash that bit of deliberate stupidity.

Ottawa, January 30, 2013 “”…” On January 26th the Honourable Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, held a news conference with Sri Lankan media in Toronto to discuss details of his recent visit to Sri Lanka, and his presentation to local media in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

A recent press release states that members of the Sri Lankan community were prevented from attending a roundtable discussion. This is not accurate. Unfortunately, non-media organizations were misinformed that this was a public roundtable event, and that is why they were unable to participate.

The presentation was identical to the one given to local media in Colombo, Sri Lanka, on January 7, 2013. Topics include: recent changes to Canada’s asylum system, the dangers of human smuggling operations, and recent efforts to preserve the integrity of Canada’s immigration system by cracking down on criminal human smugglers.

    Kenny has been going rounds begging for votes on the expense of peace-loving Sri Lankan citizens.

    This guy now looks like a kid who caught in his hand in a cookie-jar – telling all the lies to justify his actions.

    What a hypocrite…!
