Pro-Tamil Tiger activists infiltrating Canadian political parties

The Sunday Leader newspaper of Sri Lanka has yet another article in their May 25th edition wherein they have exposed the organized efforts by former pro-Tamil Tiger activists who were the spokespersons for the internationally designated terrorist group known as the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). They constantly white washed the terror acts of the LTTE’s and justified the unbridled violence in pursuit of a mono-ethnic racist  Tamil separate state to be carved out of Sri Lanka’s sovereign territory, which failed as a result of the crushing military defeat suffered on May 18, 2009 with the elimination of the terror leaders and their war machine.  

Following the military defeat in May 2009, the activists in the LTTE apparatus operating overseas metamorphosed into Human Rights Champions, and have since been using the vast amount of funds accumulated for the war effort mainly through extortion (refer HRW report of March 15, 2006) and other illicit means, to influence main stream western political parties, INGO and media to seek the break up of the tiny island of Sri Lanka into two states, hoping the international community would adopt similar steps as in the case of forming breakaway states in Kosovo, and South Sudan which are embroiled in chaotic disorder. In order to further this separatist objective, the newly invented HR champions are seeking to infiltrate Canada’s political establishment both at the federal and provincial levels to pursue the same goal of dividing Sri Lanka which they failed to achieve by earlier funding the war effort.  These members of the pro-Tamil Tiger diaspora have renounced their Sri Lankan citizenship and taken up Canadian citizenship, and living in a dream world of trying to redraw the map of Sri Lanka to create their mythical state of “Eelam” from within the shores of Canada.

The various players and their acts have been detailed in the annexed article.  The Canadian political parties too are wooing the votes of the sizable Tamil community in the GTA, whilst these pro-Tamil Tiger activists are infiltrating the political parties to spearhead them into bashing Sri Lanka and breaking up the island nation which has attained peace after three decades of LTTE terrorist violence including suicide terrorism.  WHO IN FACT IS TAKING WHOM FOR A RIDE?  The Canadian public should remain alert and ensure that their leaders focus their attention on Canada’s needs and what is good for Canada, and not get entangled in the internal affairs of other nations.

  • Tigers warm up to Canadian politicians with campaign
    contributions and votes
By Camelia Nathaniel

In the riding of Rouge Park, known among Toronto Canadians as ‘Tamil Eelam’, another politician with links to the LTTE launched his bid for Federal Liberal Nomination. Like Rathika Sitsabaiesan, who infiltrated the NDP of Canada, with the backing of the Canadian Tamil Congress (CTC), Gary Anandasangaree is planning to penetrate the Liberal Party of Canada.
Anandasangaree is Counsel to CTC, a designated ‘terrorist entity’ under UNSCR 1373, for engaging in terrorist propaganda, fundraising and procurement.
After the LTTE’s military defeat, CTC is the main platform used by the terrorists to lobby Canadian politicians and infiltrate their political parties. A few Canadian politicians driven by campaign contributions and votes have issued statements supporting the LTTE, a terrorist group proscribed in Canada.
By donating funds to the Liberal Party at different fundraising events and signing up membership, Anandasangaree was made a favourable candidate for Rouge Park over the former Liberal MP Dan McTeague, who was pushed to Pickering Riding. Many question if it was the amount of money given to the Liberal Party and membership sign up by LTTE supporters and sympathizers that made the Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau consider Anandasangaree over McTeague.
When McTeague suddenly showed up at the Liberal Party Pickering riding meeting replacing Jennifer O’Connell, his supporters questioned the judgement of the Liberal Party leadership. Trudeau is already under criticism for favouring one candidate over another for the riding, Trinity-Spadina.
In a private fund raising event for the Liberal Party organized by Anandasangaree at the residence of the Hopper Hut owner on March 31, 2014 Trudeau was introduced to both LTTE trained members and activists. They included Thiva Paramsothy who had accompanied Satha Sarachandran to a terrorist training camp in Sri Lanka in 2003. Together with the then CTC Communications Director Sahilal Sabaratnam, Sarachandran was arrested in the US for arms procurement in 2006.
Publishing a photograph of the terrorist training session, the Globe and Mail’s investigative reporter Anthony Reinhart, wrote: “Two Tiger fighters in striped camouflage, along with Mr. Paramsothy and his rifle-toting Toronto friend, Satha Sarachandran, are clearly visible in U.S. Government Exhibit F2, a photograph used by American prosecutors to send Mr. Sarachandran to prison for 26 years in early 2010.
Mr. Sarachandran, a one-time national president of the Canadian Tamil Students Association, had travelled to New York with three other men in August of 2006 in a bid to buy about $1-million worth of anti-aircraft missiles and AK-47 assault rifles to be sent to the Tigers in Sri Lanka. The arms dealers he met turned out to be undercover FBI agents, who had conducted a joint investigation with the RCMP”.
Another terrorist fundraiser introduced to Trudeau is Danton Thurairajah, Executive Director of the CTC. Reporting to LTTE US Chief Karunakaran Kandasamy, currently serving in a US prison, Thurairajah was a part of the US network that engaged in human smuggling, bribing, propaganda, fundraising, and procurement. Also at Anandasangaree’s fundraiser was Muraly Srinarayanathas, seeking Liberal Party nomination for the Scarborough Agincourt riding. Muraly was denied nomination last week.
Muraly’s father is Navaratnam Srinarayanathas, a former office bearer of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam, another designated terrorist entity. Muraly’s uncle Ranjan Sri Ranjan is the former President of CTC and the current President of the National Council of Canadian Tamils (NCCT), another two designated terrorist entities.
Anandasangaree projects himself as a human rights activist but in reality he is a Tiger activist. Together with his associates David Poopalapillai, Public Relations Director and Vanita Nathan, former Vice President, CTC, Anandasangaree was at the launch of the book on Prabhakaran at the Civic Centre in Scarborough on July 17, 2013.
In a picture taken at the book launch Mathagal Kannan, the top LTTE fundraiser in Canada is in front of Anandasangaree, and Senthilkumaran, another LTTE fundraiser in Canada is next to Poopalapillai. Anandasangaree also participated in events on May 18, 2014 marking the death of the LTTE leader and his followers at Peter and Paul Banquet Hall, Scarborough, organized by CTC and TGTE and at Albert Campbell Hall, Scarborough, organized by NCCT.
One of the cruelest terrorist leaders, Prabhakaran killed, maimed, and injured civilians and kidnapped children for recruitment paling Al Qaeda, Taliban and Boko Haram of Nigeria. However, when two LTTE organized ships, one an arms carrier arrived in Canada, Anandasangaree was the first to defend the terrorist leader who had committed the worst atrocities.
Jeremy Hainsworth, an Associated Press journalist wrote on August 13, 2010, “Anandasangaree said even if some of those on board are Tamil Tigers, they would have a legitimate refugee case in Canada”. Later he protested against Bill C-31 that called for tough measures against human smugglers.
Marked by dark and light patches, Anandasangaree’s chequered career suggests that he is not a human rights activist by any means. A true human rights activist would have criticized atrocities committed in a war by all parties – the terrorists and government troops.
However, Anandasangaree supported a proscribed international terrorist group blacklisted by Canada, USA, EU, UK, India and other countries. Although Anandasangaree travelled to Geneva’s UNHRC sessions from 2009-2014, he neither condemned the LTTE’s killing in cold blood of 400 policemen who had surrendered in Batticaloa or the 600 military personnel surrendees in Mullaitivu.
Furthermore, Anandasangaree went to the extent of organizing the campaign against Human Rights Watch when Jo Becker released, “Funding the ‘Final War:’ LTTE Intimidation and Extortion in the Tamil Diaspora” on March 15, 2006.
The report detailed how representatives and supporters of the Tamil Tigers solicited Toronto families for up to Can$ 5,000 and some businesses for up to Can$ 100,000, sometimes with threats and vandalism. Having lost the war in Sri Lanka, these terrorist fronts such as the CTC and their directing figures are diverting their time and resources to penetrate the Canadian political establishment today.
Exploiting CTC as a gateway, the LTTE seeks to infiltrate all the major political parties in Canada. Although the CTC claims it represents all Sri Lankan Canadians, their membership is only 500.
Other than Anandasangaree, those linked to the LTTE seeking Liberal Party nomination are Logan Kanapathy of CTC for Scarborough West and Theodore Antony of CTC for Scarborough Central. Anthony coming from a LTTE family, his brother, the late Father Anthony was a LTTE fundraiser in New Jersey. Operating as ‘Mambalam Swamy’ Father Anthony and the CTC Executive Director Danton Thurairajah collected funds for the LTTE in New Jersey.
Money, votes or Canadian values
What is the principle of the Liberal Party? Money, votes or Canadian values?
Will Canadians elect a leader who has compromised Canadian values like Justin Trudeau?
Will the Liberal Party of Canada nominate and the Canadians elect a bogus human rights activist like Gary Anandasangaree?

    Canada has a lot to learn from Malaysia with a LARGER Tamilian population.
