October 5, 2005: What Does It Take To Arouse A Sense Of Shame Among Politicians Who Use Immigration Tactics (Importing Voters Regardless Of The Problems They Cause) To Deceive Canadians And To Disregard The Broader Good Of Canada?
Events in Europe and Canada show a striking contrast between European and Canadian attitudes towards political violence, says Immigration Watch Canada.
On September 27, the EU Presidency on behalf of the European Union condemned “the continuing use of violence and terrorism by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE)” to achieve LTEE political objectives in Sri Lanka. The EU also banned any LTEE delegations from visiting any EU countries.
The EU Presidency further stated that the EU is considering “the formal Listing of the LTTE as a terrorist organisation”. The LTTE has already been listed as a terrorist organization by both Britain and the U.S.
The ban should be of particular interest to Canada which has close to 300,000 Tamils living in the Greater Toronto area, many of whom have obtained refugee status in Canada as a result of questionable refugee claims, says Immigration Watch Canada. Canada has made no moves similar to those of the EU and the question that Canadians have to ask is “Why not?”. The answer should anger all Canadians.
Prime Minister Martin should personally take note that the EU Presidency declares that each EU “Member State will, where necessary, take additional national measures to check and curb illegal or undesirable activities (including issues of funding and propaganda) of the LTTE, its related organisations and known individual supporters”.
Not that long ago, as many Canadians are aware, Mr. Martin disregarded the warnings of diplomatic staff, in favour of electoral advice, in a visit he made to a Tamil fund-raising event. The event was seen as a fund-raiser for the LTTE and a probable method of buying arms for Tamils in Sri Lanka. Mr. Martin's attendance at it was a way of bolstering very large Tamil support for federal Liberal candidates in the Greater Toronto area.
Mr. Martin, his election team, and the urban MP's who have benefitted from Tamil support should also take special note that, in addition to condemning the violence practiced by the LTTE in trying to achieve LTEE political goals in Sri Lanka, the “European Union furthermore repeats its serious concern at the continuing recruitment and retention of child soldier cadres by the LTTE and reminds them that there can be no excuse whatsoever for this abhorrent practice to continue”.
Although Canada has not seen terrorist attacks against the general population like those from immigrant groups in Spain and Britain, it has seen intimidation tactics and murder used by immigrant groups against one another.. The most noteable of these was the Air India bombing, the largest mass murder (over 330 deaths) in Canadian history. A number of years ago, Canada's current health minister was nearly beaten to death for speaking out against violence within his own Sikh group. A Sikh newspaper publisher was maimed for life and later murdered for writing about similar actions. The publisher's murder remains unsolved as do many other crimes committed within this group—largely because of widespread intimidation and subsequent fear of reprisals. Prominent, respected members of this group have publicly described these methods as “the way things are done at home”.
Police and other law enforcement officials in the Greater Toronto area are very much aware of similar behaviour among Tamils and other recent immigrant groups who have also imported “the way things are done at home”. The enormous size of these groups makes it very difficult for Canadian officials to control such violence.. It is important to note that the enormous cost of dealing with this behaviour in these immigrant groups is never calculated when officials add up the cost of immigration which Mr. Martin and others want to increase by 40%. The latter proposal is generally regarded as the ultimate in corruption.
In other words, the answer to the question, “Why has the Canadian government not taken strong action against the very large Tamil group in Canada?” is that they rely on the Tamils to elect a number of MP's in the Greater Toronto area and strong action might alienate the Tamils. All morality is subordinated to getting elected.
Mr. Martin, his election team and the Greater Toronto MP's have to ask themselves whether currying Tamil support and importing more Tamil Liberal voters through a recently-proposed 40% increase in Canada's immigration levels should take precedence over the peace process in Sri Lanka.
And more importantly for Canada, Mr. Martin, his election team, Greater Toronto MP's and others also have to ask how they can continue to pretend that bringing in more Tamils or immigrants of other ethnic backgrounds, primarily because of the voting support they will provide, is in the broader cultural, economic and environmental interests of Canada.
