Hon. Jason Kenney
Minister of Immigration
Ottawa, Ontario

Dear Sir:

I got your e-mail regarding your visit to Colombo but was unable to respond to it immediately. I now have received information that you held a meeting in Toronto with Tamils ONLY regarding your visit and that other Sri Lankans were refused entry to that meeting. It confirms what has been my opinion expressed in many letters to you and other members of Parliament, that Canadian politicians have absolutely no interest or concerns for the people of Sri Lanka and that your statements on Sri Lanka are merely to satisfy Canadian Tamils who you hope will vote for you. You have become the spokesperson from the Conservative Party for the campaign of the LTTE supporters in Canada who then and now want the division of Sri Lanka. Did your Tamil instructors give you a passing grade on your performance when you reported back to them? It is important for other Sri Lankans to know because if they were not satisfied with your performance, what did they dictate to you for your next statement and move against Sri Lanka? Please advise.

I hope you will not try to deny that you deliberately meant your feedback at this meeting to be only for Tamils as according to your Twitter account you have said ”

Did Tamil media roundtable to review my recent trip to Sri Lanka & our fight against human smuggling yfrog.com/nun8lfjj

Had you intended it to be for the general public, you would not have said Tamil media and excluded all the other Sri Lankan and Canadian media that are in Toronto. This tweet is proof that the Canadian Government’s intentions and attitude to Sri Lanka is based on pandering to the Tamil diaspora. You have made it clear to all Sri Lankans in Canada, who do not support the LTTE agenda, that you are not interested in their views or votes. So be it. They can together become a “block” vote against any candidate who subscribes to your attitude and any more gaffes such as this or deliberate anti- Sri Lanka statements made based on inaccurate, biased information will be keenly followed.

I look forward to your reply but please try to provide a credible explanation. Thank you.

Yours truly,

Ira de Silva

London, Canada

    Both Harper and Jason’s actions show that how cheap people they are.

    They are selling their souls on Tamils feet anticipating few votes. It is a shame for these people to get into this level.

    I can remember, Harper wishing Tamils only a Happy New Year on the Sinhala and Hindu New Year’s day in his message, despite educating him year ago that it is not a ‘Tamil only’ new year, but the New Year of Sinhalese, and the Tamil Hindus.
