Praba or Piraba? Wednesday, Aug 1 2007

Dear D.B.S. Jeyaraj,

I have read your article titled “Trouble overseas” from Frontline.  The article is full of detailed knowledge of all detainees in overseas.

I also noticed that you have spelled the leader of LTTE as “Prabakaran”.  I think it is against the Tamil grammar to write like that.  Moreover, I did not expect a Tamil from Sri Lanka to write it like the Indians.  I would please ask you to keep the Tamil way of writing with “Pira” instead of “Pra”.

Thank you

Sir Mark Holland,

I would like to thank you for speaking for the plight of Tamil people in Sri Lanka. I came to know that you have sent a letter to our honourable prime minister on the plight of Tamil people in Sri Lanka at Another MP Calling Canadian Prime Minister to open Consulate office in Jaffna, Sri Lanka

It is with great difficulty that Tamil people have to travel to Colombo to communicate with Canadian embassy. The distance between Colombo and Jaffna are roughly 300 KM yet it takes one whole day to travel. The land route is blocked by Sri Lankan Army [SLA] even though that is a violation of the Cease Fire Agreement. People line up early as one to two days before to get on board a ship. Now that a Tamil cannot temporarily stay in Colombo more than 48 hours, it is with great financial and safety burden the Tamil people have to communicate with Canadian Embassy. It would be a great ease on Tamil people, if a branch of Canadian Embassy is opened in Jaffna.

I thank you again for your voice for a crying ethnicity in Sri Lanka.

Sir Dan McTeague,

I would like to thank you for speaking for the plight of Tamil people in Sri Lanka. I came to know that you have sent a letter to our honourable prime minister on the plight of Tamil people in Sri Lanka at Harper urged to locate Canadian Embassy branch in Jaffna

__MY_NAME__

__MY_EMAIL_ADDRESS__

Dear __MY_NAME__

Thank you for your letter regarding my correspondence to Prime Minister Harper requesting that a Canadian Consulate be opened in Jaffna, Sri Lanka.

It is clear to me, as well as many observers of the region, that the situation in Sri Lanka has become untenable. Contrary to the views held by some on the actions of the Sri Lankan government, I have heard enough to convince me that political efforts are being undertaken to marginalize the Tamil population.

It is my firm belief that Canada can play a role to play in helping to ease tensions and support genuine efforts aimed at bringing peace to that country. To be fair, successive Canadian governments have taken some steps but I believe Canada can do more – especially with respect to easing the suffering of innocent people on all sides. I am therefore appalled that the Government of Canada does not seem to be taking seriously the reports of violence that have been coming out of our own officials at our embassy in Colombo.

I also have had several constituents indicate to me that their loved ones in Colombo encounter considerable difficulties in accessing the services of our embassy. Ongoing immigration applicants and even people simply trying to acquire information from the embassy have been impeded by what can only be viewed as a governmental policy that seems to have been crafted to remove or make life difficult for Tamils residing in the capital area.

It is for these reasons that I feel that it is necessary for a Canadian consulate be opened in Jaffna and be able to provide Tamils with unrestricted access to Canadian immigration services.

It is time for Government of Canada to take concrete action to ease the tension and horrific outbursts of violence in Sri Lanka. While it is my belief that Canada should and could do more with its aid policy, the Sri Lankan Government cannot escape its share of responsibility. I also believe that any other party should escape responsibility for disrupting legitimate efforts designed to bring peace and security to the country. Make no mistake, any act that foments unrest and violence is simply unacceptable – whoever carries those acts out.

I am sure you would agree that those who aim to perpetuate instability, like those who perpetrate any kind of heinous act of violence, must be held fully accountable.

Once again, thank you for providing me with your views on this very serious matter.

Sincerely,

Hon. Dan McTeague, P.C., M.P.

Dear Hon. Dan McTeague:

Thank you for your reply. We have had the war for too long and discrimination from 1950s. I hope Canada can play a pivotal role in Sri Lankan Tamils’ life sooner than “too late”.

TamilOne, why not coverage nimirvu 2007? Wednesday, Jul 18 2007 

To: [email protected]

Date: 2007/06/10 @ 10:32 pm [GMT-5]

Dear Sir/ Madam:

I have been to nimirvu 2007, which happened yesterday [Saturday June 10]. I noticed TamilOne did not take coverage of the event.

The event highlighted the sufferings of academic community of Tamileelam. There was a very movable speech by Neethan Shan. I was wondering why TamilOne did not take initiative to take coverage of the event. The main purpose of the event seemed at aiming younger student generation of Canada to make them understand our Tamileelam struggle and need for our unity.

If I may, I humbly ask TamilOne to be united in our Tamileelam struggle and let our Tamil Canadian understand and support the need for an independent nation.

When is Canada going to act on Sri Lanka? Monday, Feb 19 2007 

To: [email protected]; [email protected]

Dear Hon. Peter MacKay,

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Canada.

Britian is threatening to follow the footsteps of German to stop a grant of £41 million (90M CDN) to Sri Lanka. The reason being:

“…Britain claims that Sri Lanka is guilty of a significant violation of international obligations, particularly human rights, an instigation of hostilities and an unjustified rise in military spending. It believes that instead of spending the sum released on tsunami recovery and poverty reduction it has gone on a spending spree for military hardware and logistics.

Britian is the second EU country to take a stand along this line. Germany has already announced it was stopping aid and called on other EU countries to do the same. It looks like the international community is beginning to understand what Tamils have been saying all along.

Sri Lanka is a chauvinistic Sinhala government killing Tamils, not worrying whether they carried guns or not. Their aim is to eradicate Tamils from the island. Tamils need to be saved from the hawks of Sinhala Sri Lanka. Sri Lankan army should be evacuated from Tamils homeland, Tamil Eelam. Even Canada seems to take the side of the state terrorist, Sri Lanka. Canada followed the footsteps of EU to list, Tamils only hope, LTTE as a terrorist organization. Now EU seems to have realized its wrong-doing.

Is Canada going to continue its support to a state terrorist? Is Canada not worried about Sri Lanka breaking international obligations? Does Canada care about the Tamils humans rights in Sri Lanka? Finally, is Canada providing funds titled “Tsunami Aid” to Sri Lanka to buy military hardware and logistics to kill Tamils?

I have posted this letter in my blog at When is Canada going to act on Sri Lanka?.

UNESCO suspends Chandrika Tuesday, Dec 19 2006 

To: [email protected]

Dated: 2006/12/22 @ 11:03 [GMT-5]

Dear Director-General Koichiro Matsuura:

Re: UNESCO suspends Chandrika

I have read a news about Sri Lankan former president Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga on The Sunday Times titled: UNESCO suspends Chandrika . Even though this is very late in realizing, it is most welcomed.

She has committed most atrocities against the Sri Lankan ethnic Tamils in the Tamils’ freedom struggle. As I was personally affected by her regime, I would sincerely uphold your decision to suspend her from a prominent position. I strongly believe these State Terrorists should not be given high positions as this would lead future dictators with a handy escape.

My family and myself would strongly like to see her permanently removed from any positions in UNESCO. I have posted this letter in my blog at http://1letter.wordpress.com/2006/12/19/unesco-suspends-chandrika-bandaranaike-kumaratunga/

Disappointed with TVi Monday, Dec 4 2006 

To: [email protected] and aslo submitted in the “Send Your Feedback” form.

Date: 2006/12/04 @ 09:11 am [GMT-5]

Dear Sir/ Madam:

I am very proud that there is a prominent Tamil TV channel in Canada that broadcasts more news and situation reports about our homeland, Tamil Eelam. Thank you for your great service.

Yet, I’m bit dissappointed with TVi that TVi had the “exclusive” right to broadcast Maveerar Naal in Canada. I think this event should not have been a commercial bargain. I think no one should have “exclusive” rights to broadcast this event. All Tamil TV channels should have given free access to this live broadcast.

By acquiring the “exclusive” right to Tamil Eelam’s National Maveerar Naal, other Canadian TV channels were seen as anti-Tamil elements. In turn, people will falsely assume other Canadian Tamil TV channels are supportive of Sri Lankan government’s propaganda, as I have assumed earlier. This is by far not a healthy Tamil media relationships.

I would appreciate if TVi would not acquire “exclusive” rights for any Tamil Eelam’s National events. I have posted this letter in my blog at Disappointed with TVi

Thank you
