Dear Jason, Paul, Patrick & Pierre:

HmmƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦wellƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦.wellƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦wellƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦did you read the Globe & Mail article ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”The Tories and the TigersƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ remnantsƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ by Anthony Reinhart in yesterdayƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s (March 5) ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Globe & Mail?ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  If you havenƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t, you should.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  All what I can say is WOW! That article had reduced you Conservatives as a Bunch of DodoƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  ThatƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s what I feared all along that this might happen one day to my Conservatives.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  And it did happen.

Did that article echo what I told you lot in my letter of November 11, 2010 ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” Watch Out Conservative!ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  WellƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦go back and read it.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I was no soothsayer as I am just an ordinary Canadian citizen ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ who is concerned for the security of my Canada, who had tapped the pulse on the Tamil issue since July 1983 when the Conservatives opened the flood gates for the Tamils to pour in saying that they have been discriminated and persecuted in Sri Lanka, and yet one million Tamils stayed put in Sri Lanka after the July 83 riots.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Now 41% of the population of the multi-ethnic capital Colombo of Sri Lanka are Tamils who are living there happy as clams.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  How about that eh!ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Discriminated and persecuted they still say, and all what I say to these whining Tamils is ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Discriminated and persecuted, my foot!ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚

So you all thought that you had managed to get hold of the Tiger tails and learnt the ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”Tiger shuffleƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ to the percussion sounds of ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ their tom-toms playing the beat of ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”Thunai-lakadithanthalakadi, thunai lakadi thanthalakadi, and you had your Dance cards filled by the Tigers’ remnants in the Greater Toronto Area.

But what you Conservatives blinded by the thousands of the Tamil Tiger ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ill-gotten green dollar bills that stuffed your riding coffers was that they taught ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ you the ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ treacherous ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”Tiger SwingƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ to the song ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”Swing High and Swing LowƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ and when they got you in an aeroplane spin continued with the ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Tiger Swing by letting you go into the air continuing the song,… ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…- and now I will let you go,ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  and laugh at you guys watching you all fall into a foolƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s heap like a bunch of ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ stupid ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ grimacing looking marionettes.

HereƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s the latest news for you lot.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I was at a Sri Lankan-Canadian event last night and listened to scores of attendees who had read the Globe and Mail article fuming at you Conservatives and every one of them professed that they will not be voting for the Conservatives.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  They were from Pierre PoilievreƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s, Royal GalipeauƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s, David BairdƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s, Paul DewarƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s (NDP) and Mauril BelangerƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s (Liberal) ridings.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  And that was the fall out for your Dancing with the Tamil TigersƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ Remnants in the Greater Toronto Area.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  And I have gone public that I will not vote for the Conservatives the next time around nor will I empty my pockets to help fill your election preparedness coffers.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  That is my ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ reluctant protest.

All what I can say to you foolishƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  bunch of Conservative parliamentarians ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ is ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”Good LuckƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ and I willƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  be watchingƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  closely how you will extricate ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ yourselves from this damn mess and win back the trust of Sri Lankan-Canadians, which include the Sinhalese, moderate-Tamils and MuslimsƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  that you all lost in the thousands across Canada by taking up Dancing with TigersƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ Remnants.
