Tamils versus Canada: Let's dance
Stories from the illegal Tamil migrants are now stating to Canadians that they has no choice as mass murder was the reason 490 Tamils escaped Sri Lanka.
The illegal Tamil migrants now have us believe their tale of woe they escaped with their lives and had to make the long journey of thousands and thousands of miles, months at sea risking life and the limb and their children to come all the way to Canada, bypassing a 2 hour cruise to Tamil Nadu in India where many Tamils go to live in relative peace and prosperity as India's burgeoning middle class is growing by leaps and bounds. Of course they are said to cruised by Australia as well enroute to Canada was and had always been their choice destination.
Canada which has the second largest population in the world outside of Sri Lanka has 300,000 Tamils largely centred in Toronto where it is said they hold court as a quasi Tamil government in exile.
This Tamil government in exile are seen by many as one big Ontario Liberal and NDP voting block many politicians will walk carefully around; especially if they want to remain in power in various Tamil densely populated Ontario ridings. That's a tune all politicians can dance to.
Now that all the illegal Tamil migrants are safely in Canada, it is not without controversy as Canadians feel they once again have been taken advantage of and seen once again as an "All Day Sucker" by the third world.
As the interview process begins at Maple Ridge prison where the illegal Tamil migrant men are held, a slow dance begins between Canada immigration officials and the R.C.M.P. with their unwilling dance partners, the illegal Tamil migrants. The music sheet played by the Orchestra leader Vic Toews will feature the hit song " Who can it be now?", a 1981 Australian classic made famous by Men at Work.
It has been reported that personal identification papers of the illegal Tamil migrants is non existent, pretty much destroyed before the illegal Tamil migrants boarded the M.V. Sun Sea. A favoured ploy by air passengers posing as visitors, who are in fact illegal migrants , in a "Can't send me back to a country without proving I am from that country". In this case Canada could, but won't, even though it is clear the illegal Tamil migrants came to our shores in good health, clean clothes, plenty of food and water.
In the words of one Canadian official who boarded the M.V. Sun Sea "The ship was well organised, well stocked". This surprise belies stories by Canadian Tamil organizations of illness and passengers near death.
Once Canadians found out the truth, calls by many Canadians stated to our Government officials; refuel the ship and send the Tamils back to whence they came. Anyone can differentiate between photos of true refugees and economic refugees. One look at the Pakistani flood victims versus photos of Tamil migrants stepping off the M.V. Sun Sea can see why many Canadians feel the Economic migrant moniker will be hard to shake with these illegal Tamil migrants, of course at $50,000 dollars a head certainly cements that.
While the processing of the illegal Tamil migrants continue, Canadian officials in their efforts, will be met with delays, lots of overtime, daily frustration and near impossible lengths they will have to go through in determining who is who among the illegal Tamil migrants when conducting background checks of those who conveniently lost all their identification papers.
Determining who is who among the illegal Tamil migrants, especially any Tamil Tigers who brought the illegal Tamil migrants to the Land of Milk and Honey will be met with a shipload of uncooperative dance partners regardless what type of music the government big band plays.
While the dance steps taken by our government to assist their unwilling migrant dance partners in trying to determine who the Captain of the M.V. Sun Sea and her crew will most likely fall on the tone deaf passengers.
Perhaps our Canadian orchestra leader (Vic Toews) isn't playing the right tune.
