Dear Police Chief Bill Blair:

Last night when a friend of mine in Toronto told me that the small plane hired by the Scarborough-Torontonian Tamil Diaspora flying the banner – STOP GENOCIDE IN SRI LANKA - had flown quite low over the cricket grounds in Toronto when the Sri Lanka cricket Test team was playing last week, I cringed.

This would have been a perfect recipe to read banner headlines the following day in the National Post, Toronto Star, Globe & Mail and the Toronto Sun - “Sri Lankan Test cricketers mowed down by Tamil banner carrying small plane”; “Toronto’s Tamil Diaspora hired small plane sweeps Sri Lankan Test cricketers to death”; “Toronto’s Tamil Tiger supporters have Sri Lankan Test cricketers killed with hired small plane”.

I am afraid to say that you all are playing with fire by not reining in these proxy-Tamil Tigers and caging them, and allowing them to misuse the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, our sacred trust to poke, incite, challenge, provoke and harass the Sinhalese Sri Lankan-Canadian community in the Greater Toronto Area.

When planes were used on September 11, 2001, to bring down New York’s World Trade Centre Twin Towers by terrorists; and the Munich massacre on September 5, 1972, of 11 Israeli Olympic wrestlers and their coaches by Yasser Arafat’s Palestinian Black September terrorists with AK47s and Tokarev pistols, it would have been a cake-walk for the low lying small plane hired by the pro-Tamil Tiger Scarborough-Torontonian Tamils, to zigzag its way, chasing the Sri Lankan cricketers while they were fielding and kill them. We certainly took chances!

There wouldn’t have been a need for a kamikaze crash of the plane to achieve their goal to make a propaganda statement to the world for the want of their mono-ethnic, racist, separate Tamil state, Eelam, but a landing of the small plane after zigzagging it mowing down the players and announcing that, “We encountered trouble in one of our engines, and without having it crash onto a high-rise or a shopping centre, we headed for a playing field to bring the plane down. We are sorry that there have been a few fatalities, but we commend the pilot for evading much more causalities had he let the plane crash on to a much populated place.”

Here is the scenario, which would have shaken the cricketing world, and it would have been more than fiction because there was a real possibility of such an event.

The low flying plane zigzagging its way could have approached the cricket playing field from the batman’s end killing the Third Man, Wicket Keeper, Two Slips, Gully, Cover, Bowler and Mid Off, all Sri Lankan fielders. And with them, the casualties would have been the two opposing country batsmen and the Head Umpire. They would have killed eight Sri Lankan Test cricketers out of the eleven in one sweep. Was this possible? Of course it was possible.

Let us not forget that we are dealing with a determined group of Tamils in Canada that almost pulled off the biggest jail break in Canadian history in 1991 with hired mercenaries. This one would have been so spectacular that someone would have been scripting for a thriller movie. Perhaps a mini-series. There was a chopper involved to get six guys out of the Collins Bay Prison. The guys were all Tamils who entered Canada as refugees. The plan was to take a helicopter right into the yard at Collins Bay and shoot out the guard towers with rockets, and storm the prison. The Tamils that they wanted to bring out were Veeravagu Velmurugu (conspiracy to traffic heroin), Balasubramaniam Murugesu (trafficking in heroin), Sothinathan Manikkam (Possession of heroin for the purpose of trafficking), Selvaratnam Ratnam (conspiracy to traffic in heroin), Murugadas Thamotharampillai (conspiracy to traffic in heroin), and Kathirgamanathan Subramania (possession of proceeds of crime). I doff my hat to your officers who foiled this amazing great escape.

Anything is possible from this community among who are 8,000 well trained terrorist Tamil Tiger refugees now walking the streets of Greater Toronto Area, and who blatantly were waving the flag of the Tamil Tigers, the terrorist group which has been banned in Canada. Their audacity should not go unnoticed as they were almost thumbing their noses at the police. These numbers of the trained Tamil Tigers in Canada are from the RCMP and CSIS reports, and not mine.

Let us be cognizant of the fact that the Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka who have been supported by the Tamils in the Greater Toronto Area have been kicked out from the Eastern Province, and most of their de facto separate state, Eelam, in the northern province have been reclaimed by the Sri Lankan Government Forces, and they are two miles out side Killinochchi, where the Tamil Tiger headquarters are located. All these are pinching at their heart-strings, and they don’t like it. When times are desperate people do desperate things. For a terrorist group who assassinated two heads of states, Rajiv Gandhi of India and President Premadasa of Sri Lanka and 37 other Sri Lankan parliamentarians, going after the Sri Lankan Test cricketers while playing cricket in Toronto would have been a game of tiddly-winks for them.

While I want to share my observations with you, I respectfully request that you claim back for us, from the Tamil Tiger sympathizers in the Greater Toronto Area, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the sacred trust that we Sri Lankan Sinhalese- Canadians have accepted, respect and cherish so much.
