Sir:
ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 
“One more boatload of Tamils: expert”ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ is on its wayƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ to CanadaƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ you said.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  This is insane, when Sri Lanka has been theƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ most amazing success story in recent history where Tamil refugees areƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ returning home in the thousands every week,ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ since the 27-year Tamil Tiger war endedƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ that haemorrhagedƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ that island killing over 100,000 people.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Why are these Tamil refugees returning home in the thousands?ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Simple. ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Because finally there is ‘Peace’ in that land nation.
ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 
Since the war ended in May 2009, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees spokesman Michael Zwack says that the Tamil refugees are returning home to Sri Lanka in the thousands are now “rebuilding their lives”.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  They are returning because they are safe without a stupid war and the internally displaced refugee campsƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ that housed 300,000 Tamils who were rescuedƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  from the Tamil Tigers are coming down as the refugees are going home to their new and rebuilt houses, in areas where there are mini-supermarkets that have proped up, banks functioning, hospitals have opened, schools have opened their doors again for the children, and the child soldiers who were given special tution after a stint of rehabilitation are sitting for government exams to enter university, and the Tamil farmers areƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ producing crops of chillies and onions for a living.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  All this after the war ended in May 2009.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Amazing!
ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 
So who are these Tamil people who are coming to Canada in boat loads.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I say they are bunch of scammers who areƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ abusing the Canadian generosity and the social system to the hilt.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Let them knowƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  that Tamil people like them who sought refugee status elsewhere are leaving those friendliest places to return home.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  AndƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  that is Sri Lanka, and that we don’t believe that Sri Lanka is an inhospitable place anymore and they too should turn their ship around and returnƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ home, ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ like the rest of the Tamil refugees who are returning to Sri Lanka in the thousands every week.
ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 
And that if they really wish to come to Canada, to fill in the necessary forms to immigrate and hand them over to the Canadian High CommissionƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ office on Gregory Road, in the heart of Colombo.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  It is an easy place to find and any taxi driver would know where to take them.
