Your editorial ‘Trafficking in people’ was a goodƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ read.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Let me be blunt about these Ocean Lady and Sun Sea fiascos, all what the Conservative Government is musing aboutƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  wanting to impose new mandatory minimumƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ sentences for human trafficking is all eye wash.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  All this tough talking huffing and puffingƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  by the Minister of Public Safety will come to nought as I will bet my last dollar that no offender will see the inside walls of a Canadian court room.
The Tamil human trafficking has been a million dollar business since the 1980s asƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Tamils were smuggled through airports, seaports andƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ land crossing from the States. ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  The RCMP knows it, CSIS knows it and every parliamentarianƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ since August 1983ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ have known it.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ The passportƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ and Canadian entry document forgeriesƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ were part of this scam.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ The parliamentarians of the Conservatives, the Liberals and the NDP won’t touch it as they do not wish to antagonize the the Tamil community and lose the 100,000 Tamil votes in the GTA where their votes are in play in 10 ridings.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  It is that simple.
AƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  country that was prepared to accept the role of a proxy-killer in the Tamil separatist war in Sri Lanka by allowing theƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ separatist Canadian TamilsƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ collect two million dollars each month for 11 long yearsƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  during the Liberal administration to stuff their war chestƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  to buy war weapons is not going to turn the tables on the TamilƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ community now.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  That is wishful thinking as there is also two strong allies that willƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ go along withƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ this scam, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the community of Immigration lawyers.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 
So Canada, be prepared to see more human trafficking ships with pay-loads of TamilsƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ floating towards the Canadian coast.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  This prediction is as good as night following day.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I predicted this when the first boat, The AurigaeƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ landed on the shores of Newfoundland in August 1986ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ with 155 Tamis.

One Response to “Trafficking in people”

  1. A. Sooriarachi Says:

    It seems, having covertly supported the Tamil Tigers to undermine SriLanka’s sovereignity the EU, UK , USA, Norway and the Christian Church have no option but to accept the Tamil boat people into their countries. To avoid a backlash from the tax payers, the politicians have to pretend to be tough, though in fact are hoodwinking their own citizens with no regard to the possibility of some of these boat people being Tigers and common criminals escaping from prosecution (not persecution) in the country they committed heinous crimes and also leaving open the possibility of corrupting the minds of the younger generations in the receiving countries, who come into contact with any Tigers or criminals given refuge. Today this is an Industry. Transporting these boat people is a lucrative business to many people and it is unlikely the flow will stop or even slow down. After all, those benefiting are not only the boat people, but also the many lawyers appearing for them, the galaxy of translaters, the human smugglers, the Tiger diaspora waiting for more contributions and last but not the least, the politicians soliciting their votes and the Christian church wanting to increase their congregations. Will these societies one day pay the price for the opportunistic behaviour of a few in powerful positions.
