Canada’s Flawed Policy on Sri Lanka

Dear Sir:
A news report dated May 1, 2013 indicates that Canada will not be sending a “full delegation” to the Commonwealth meeting in Sri Lanka this year. I am assuming that this is diplomatic jargon to say that Mr. Stephen Harper and perhaps you will not be attending the summit. Your decision was made after you, representing Canada at the meeting in London on April 26th, were unable to bully and coerce other members of the Commonwealth to move the meeting out of Sri Lanka. The news report calls it “John Bairds Campaign” and states that Canada was the lone voice raising the issue of Sri Lanka.

 I trust that you have realised that in the Commonwealth, Canada can have it’s own opinions but does not have the right to condemn a member state, bully or coerce other members or conduct it’s foreign policy in a holier than thou attitude, a bull in a china shop manner as personified by you on the international stage. Your  display of ignorance and lack of diplomatic skill is what is appalling. It has diminished Canada. As a picture is worth a thousand words, I am sending you a news report titled “Canada Fury at Sri Lanka choice for Commonwealth talks” with a picture of you. The picture personifies your personality – a belligerent, unprofessional, undiplomatic, uninformed individual who represents the “new” Canada on the international stage.


 You had a tantrum in London because you could not please the supporters of the LTTE (Tamil terrorists) who influence your policy on Sri Lanka making Canada the new leader of the Tamil diaspora wanting to divide Sri Lanka by any means possible.  Canada’s attitude to Sri Lanka is based on pandering to the LTTE supporters in Canada as confirmed by another minister of your government earlier this year, Mr. Jason Kenny, who stated that policy on Sri Lanka is based on Canadian domestic politics, i.e. getting votes.  The picture of you greeting  the LTTE supporters in London confirms the unholy alliance between the LTTE and Canada, that Canada speaks for the LTTE.  The news report refers to it as  “John Baird’s Campaign”, see below.

 Your performance in London shows that it is supportive of the LTTE diaspora. You hope that your statements and actions will get you the Tamil vote in Canada. The other political parties play the same game. Canada thinks that the rest of the world is unaware of the fact that successive Canadian governments permitted Canadian citizens to send two million dollars a month to fund terrorism in Sri Lanka while some Canadian politicians even helped in the fund raising. Canadian politicians provided political backing for terrorism in Sri Lanka.  The people of Sri Lanka, who suffered because of Canadian sponsored terrorism, know Canada’s role in supporting the LTTE  and equate Canada with LTTE terrorism because those who supply the bombs, guns and political leadership are as guilty as the terrorists who do the bombings, massacres, murders and extreme violence of the LTTE that had Sri Lankans living in fear for thirty years. Canada can not preach  human rights, democratic rights and the rule of law to Sri Lankans because it has violated these principles for decades.
While you have confirmed Canada’s leadership of the LTTE diaspora, members of the Commonwealth, who are not pandering to the Global Tamil Diaspora,  who have a balanced and objective view and do not need Tamil votes to get elected, have voted against Canada’s biased, flawed and dictatorial opinions. What is appalling it not that Sri Lanka is going to hold the next summit but that Canada has confirmed to the world that it’s foreign policy is predicated on lies, deception and supportive of terrorism.  Your appalling performance has diminished Canada’s image internationally. As for Sri Lankans, knowing that Canada is supportive and leading the  LTTE, your not attending the conference may be a welcome relief as it would only serve to remind them of the horrors they suffered during the thirty years of LTTE terrorism. 
Yours truly,
Ira de Silva

    He looks like Hanuman. No wonder TEs find him attractive and he finds TEs attractive.

    May be this is news to some people. Do you know Tamilians in SL worship Hanuman for destroying SL?

  2. crobe Says:

    If Canada does not want to attend the summit, they should just stay home. SL does not care if they send a “full” or “Partial” delegation. The Canadian elections are coming up in a couple of years and the Conservative’s are behind. So, they are trying to lock up the LTTE/Diaspora votes and funding by pandering to them.

  3. Voice123 Says:

    Lorenzo, ever notice how Indians depict their gods and goddesses with light pink skin in statues, pictures etc? This is quite unlike how the average Indian looks. It seems as if people like Baird are capitalizing on this complex.

  4. Lorenzo Says:


    But Tamils are more practical.

    Tamils (South Endians) have their gods and goddesses in PITCH BLACK COLOR!

    Both north Endians and south Endians are PRIMITIVE. They worship sex organs like barbarians 10,000 years ago.
    This way the Arabs are MUCH MORE civilised. They only chip them, not worship them.

  5. Voice123 Says:

    Lorenzo, higher forms of Hinduism are very sophisticated and advanced systems of knowledge. Its just got some curious features like the out of character statues. Maybe its due to the colonial influence?

  6. Ratanapala Says:

    This the face of Catholic Canadian Racists that colludes with the Racist Tamils. The common bond between the Racist Tamils and the Canadians is the Catholic Church. This is what is fuelling this crusade from Canada against Buddhist Sri Lanka. If this most important factor is not understood and it is a futile effort to contain this self righteous indignation of this Hanuman from Canada. Canada started this campaign in the early 1980’s with the Maduru Oya Project and it continues. Their ultimate goal is to dismember Sri Lanka leading to the formation of Catholic Eelam to be followed by North Western Province as another Catholic enclave. This is the vision of late Pope John Paul II – the Protector Maximus of Pedophiles.

    To tackle the issue Sri Lanka has to directly confront the Catholic and other Christian Churches with their complicity in the terrorist war. To pretend this factor does not exist is next thing to committing harakiri for Sri Lanka.

    Regular visits to kiss the Pedophile Protecter’s ring at the Vatican will not solve this issue.

    Hon John Baird? What is honourable about him?
