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?

Dear Sir/ Madam:

Re: Missing pay

This is my third letter regarding this matter. Initially I sent the letter on January 04, 2007. Then I sent another letter on January 26, 2007.

I am missing my correct pay for the stat holidays. Following are the details:

  • For the week 42 [pay end date 2006-10-15], I was only paid 7.68 hours for the stat holiday.
  • For the week 22 [pay end date 2006-05-28], I was only paid 7.42 hours for the stat holiday.

The law is there should have been 13 weeks worked prior, to receive full stat holiday payment. I have been working for The AIM Group since January of 2006. Obviously, there are more than 13 weeks for the above mentioned stat holiday pay discrepancies.

Please consider this matter urgently and resolve this issue. Till date, I have not received any acknowledgement of re-paying the missing hours. I have posted this letter in my blog at The AIM Group and I.

Thank you and looking forward to have my money back.

__________,

This is and has been in the works and will be corrected. The accounting department has been quite busy with year end and taxation time (i.e. T-4 calculations).

In fact there is no law in regards to paying contractors for stat holidays. It is something that AIM does for employees after working 13 continuous weeks. The amount paid is based on a formula (rather complicated) involving working the day before and after a stat, and previous pay among other items.

I’m sorry for the delay but as I noted they are quite busy getting everyone’s tax information in order.

If you have further questions or comments, please give me a call.

Cheers,

g

Dear BBC,

Thanks a lot for falling pray to Sri Lankan state medias. You have effectively identified a letter, which was written on 12-12-2007 faxed from a police station on 14/01/2007, as a LTTE cadre’s. The state terrorists successfully portrayed a letter faxed from a police station as a LTTE cadre’s letter. Wow, you were actually fooled by the Sri Lankan army. Congratulations.

Dear BBC,

Thanks for not reporting about a paster being shot dead in broad daylight by the Sri Lankan army. I am sure you have more important news than reporting Tamils killing by the Sri Lankan army. Yes, there are around 7 to 10 Tamils being killed per day by Sri Lankan army and you cannot report all, since its all done by the State Terrorists. It is okey if Tamils were killed but you’ll report immediately, if there is a bomb blast that kills Sinhalese. As a world media you have clean hands and say no word while innocent lives were lost.

Thanks for your blind eye. BBC say no word.

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/

The Terror Posed By Sri Lanka’s New Anti-Terror Laws Monday, Dec 11 2006 

To: [email protected]

Dated: 2006/12/11 @ 9:30 am [GMT-5]

Dear David Poopalapillai:

I saw your Ottawa press release dated December 08, 2006 titled, The Terror Posed By Sri Lanka’s New Anti-Terror Laws. The opening statement of the last paragraph is “The LTTE has been fighting the Sri Lankan government for over two decades in the hope of carving out a separate state for ethnic Tamils in the northeastern region of Sri Lanka, citing systemic discrimination by the majority Sinhalese.” I do not think the phrase “carving out a separate state” is a good choice. This makes a feeling of Tamils as a seperatists. May be “… for over two decades for an independent state for …” or “…for over two decades in the hope of forming an independent state for …” would have been a better choice.

I am also aware, that CTC has been very active in Tamil community and giving great services. Please do not take my email as a downgrader. I have posted this letter in my blog here

Dear ____________,

The CTC appreciates your enthusiasm for the cause and is pleased that you were passionate enough to write to us in response to a press release that we issued. Your suggestion showed both critical thought and dedication to the plight of Sri Lankan Tamils.

In restrospect, you are probably right. “Carving” connotes a more aggressive action than words like “forming” or “fighting for”.

We appreciate your suggestion and applaud your commitment. Thank you for recognizing the CTC’s efforts. Please feel free to contact us anytime. We will welcome your thoughtful input on future matters.

Sincerely,

David Poopalapillai

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

Dear Hon. Deepak Obhrai:

First of all, I would like to thank you for raising up the conflicts in Sri Lanka between Tamils and Sinhalese. I read an article about your statement in the House of Commons at Canada wants Lanka, LTTE to ‘build’ on Geneva II

Moreover, I also feel that you have not addressed the reality of the issue. Here are some points to ponder.

  • After the Canada and EU ban, Sinhala government started to increase the extrajudicial killings and offensives against Tamils.
    EU Tiger ban criticised [BBC Sinhala]

Please try to understand the depth of the Tamil struggle, and don’t try to view it as a terrorist problem and apply “war on terrorism” solution. “Sinhala state terrorism” is the root cause of the problem, and still it is a problem.

Re: Blast sparks Sri Lanka air raids Tuesday, Oct 17 2006 

Regarding news articles from BBC, Reuters, and Yahoo News: Blast sparks Sri Lanka air raids, Sri Lanka says committed to talks with Tiger rebels, Sri Lanka’s bloodiest suicide bombing kills 103 people respectively.

Dear Sirs:

I have read the news, Blast sparks Sri Lanka air raids, or Sri Lanka says committed to talks with Tiger rebels, or Sri Lanka’s bloodiest suicide bombing kills 103 people, on your website. I was shocked to find that you have noted as “people”, while it was infact Sri Lankan Navy personnel. I do not know the intention of the twisted fact, but this is not the way I would expect a prominent news media to report. Even the photos taken at the scene of the incident clearly shows the weapons.

Even many Sri Lankan state supportive news medias were moderate enough to report the fact. Moreover CNN reported as “… killed dozens of navy sailors …“. In addition, I have provided many links below to the sources of the same news, which reports as “Navy sailors” instead of “people”, which appear as civilians. I always think your service is unbiased, but it seems like your reporters may not be. I hope to see non-twisted truths in the future reportings.

I have also archived this letter in my web blog at Re: Blast sparks Sri Lanka air raids.
