Foreign Minister Dinesh Gunawardena  yesterday (10) conveyed Sri Lanka’s deep concern over the adoption of Private Member Bill 104 on ‘Tamil Genocide Education Week’ by the Ontario Legislative Assembly on 06 May 2021 to  Canadian High Commissioner David McKinnon.

The meeting took place at the Foreign Ministry. Pointing out that the position taken by the Ontario Legislative Assembly contradicted the Canadian government’s stand, Gunawardena sought immediate intervention of the Canadian government to stop Royal Assent by Lt. Governor of Ontario to the controversial Bill.

Joining the meeting, Foreign Secretary Admiral (Prof.) Jayanath Colombage elaborated on the potential harm the Bill 104 could cause to the reconciliation process, peace building and the bilateral relations between the two countries. The Foreign Minister, while thanking the Canadian Government for the continuous support extended to Sri Lanka on multiple fronts, also discussed with the High Commissioner a wide range of bilateral issues.

    While the politicos do their thing as usual we have to ask our officials especially the defence secy and the heads of try forces including the police to look after the country with due diligence. This is the time various forces may interfere to carry out their agendas. We can see it happening and because of lack of foreign exchange we do not have to sacrifice this land that has been protected from time immemorial by our forefathers.

    Dollars should not be the concern. US is printing loads of it and distributing among their citizens because nobody is there to stop it.

    Protect the head of state as well as the country while maintaining law and order.
