Dear Sir:
It is interesting to note that Mr. J. Baird met a group of Tamil-Canadians two weeks ago and took complaints to Sri LankaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s government. Perhaps this meeting also influenced Mr. Harper in the statements he has made regarding boycotting the meeting of the Commonwealth even though the decision regarding the Commonwealth meeting was made in 2009 when Mr . Harper was Prime Minister. In other words the Conservative Government hasƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ beenƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ influenced to change policyƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ by theƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ same Canadian citizens who during the days of Liberal governments in Canada sent two million dollars a month for terrorism in Sri Lanka, paid for the bombing of the Central Bank killing and wounding over a thousand, bombed the holiest Buddhist shrine in Sri Lanka, killed civilians while they prayed in temples and mosques and were responsible for the assassination of the Prime Minister of India and President of Sri Lanka just to name a few of the atrocitiesƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ applauded by these same upstanding Canadian citizens who areƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ today “happy theyƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢re coming forward to listen, and openly saying things about them.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ As theƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ picture in the article shows, they were the same thousands who blocked the streets of Toronto and Ottawa, violatingƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Canadian law in their frenzied effortsƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ to save the hierarchy of theƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Tamil terrorists when they were surrounded by the security forces in Sri Lanka.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 
It is a telling indictment on the political leadership of Canada that the Foreign Minister has become the conduit between the left over Tamil terrorist supporters in Canada and the Government of Sri Lanka and that the Canadian Government is basing policy solely on their input hoping for votes in the GTA. If those who are opposed to terrorism and there are thousands of them, meet with Mr. Baird, what willƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Canadian policy be to get their votes?ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ One community is being courted, another alienated. Those who are alienated by these unprincipled statements will now not vote Conservative.
Canada is part of the western campaign supposedly carrying out a war on terrorism in the world yet for the sake of aƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ few thousand votes hasƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  become the spokesperson for supporters of Tamil terrorism. So much for principles or lack of principles in Canadian politicsƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ particularly when it is from a government supposedly strong on law and order.
Yours truly,

    I think, Harper won’t be elected another term as the prime minister with a majority.

    Did you read the report that UK, Canada and Australia wants Common Wealth to FOCUS on human rights violations by the other common wealth members.

    It looks like preplanned. We eat, we drink, we live as they do. On top of that, the colonial master wants to keep the control over us by other means.

    It is like they do their best to the aborginies in their countries.
