A ship carrying 490 Tamils, among which smugglers and possibly people linked to the Tamil Tigers, a known terrorist organization, had no problem arriving in Canada last week. Now we have another batch of freeloaders, who for a long while will be getting free food, free housing, and free healthcare. The government showed us once again that illegal migrants’ interest come far above the interests of its citizens and the people who wait for years to immigrate to Canada. What were they thinking???
There would have been some excuse if this was the first such case. However, just last year another ship loaded with 76 Tamil migrants was accepted in exactly the same way. Those people were held in detention while they were investigated, but eventually all of them were freed pending their status determination and now most of them are living in the Toronto area. Some of them supposedly work, but the vast majority of them are on welfare.
It is reported that it costs about $200 daily to keep an illegal migrant in a processing center. The Canadian taxpayers will have to fork out millions of dollars over the next few months, so that the Tamils smuggled to Canada can have all their needs covered.
Canada is quickly turning into a dumping ground for human smugglers, who collect huge amounts of money from wanna-be immigrants, bring them here and dump them under the care of our generous welfare state.
Of course, each every one of the people smuggled on board of Sun Sea ship has a carefully crafted refugee sob story. And there will be dozens of merry lawyers who would jump on that refugee bandwagon, generously financed by Canada’s legal aid system.
The process will go on despite the fact that even the United Nations doesn’t consider Sri Lanka as a source of refugees anymore. In their opinion, the situation there has already stabilized, but truth has never mattered in the liberal world.
It is reported that the people on board of the ship have each paid $40,000 to $50,000 to be brought here. Few days ago Toronto Star ran an article about the first group of Tamil migrants, who came last year. Prominent part of it was the story of a “farmer” who supposedly was thrown in a camp after the Tamil terrorists were defeated. In the camp he paid a soldier to get him fake ID and help him escape (how much cash do they let you keep in those camps?!). After that he was introduced to a “travel agent” who collected from him $45,000 to get him on Ocean Lady (together with other 75 people who paid the same amount).
That story has more holes than a piece of Swiss cheese. Sri Lanka’s GDP per capita is merely about $1,800 yearly (2010 estimate). With such meagre income how can a farmer afford to pay in a lump sum 25 times the average national income?
Maybe the people who could afford that were not the desperate refugees, but simply migrants who wanted to take a shortcut to getting into Canada in the normal legal way. If somebody else paid the money for them, we must find out who did it, probably the Tamil organizations in Canada should be investigated. Why doesn’t the government sell the smugglers’ ship to get back at least part of the money spent on those phoney refugees?
In any case, the Canadian government becomes an accomplice in human smuggling. The smugglers who brought here Ocean Lady were never investigated, let alone convicted.
There is no reason to believe that the case with the new smuggling ship will be investigated. The government will choose the easy way of letting the 490 Tamils go free on the taxpayers’ dime.
If the Canadian government cared about the safety of its citizens, it would have taken some measures against the extremists among the Tamil community. What we saw last year in Toronto after the Sri Lankan government crushed the Tamil Tigers was appalling:
- Firebombing of a Sinhalese Buddhist temple (probably committed by Tamil Tigers). Because of that the temple now gets $60,000 in public funds for protection.
- Noisy demonstrations at all major foreign consulates under the flags of the Tamil Tigers (an internationally recognized terrorist organization responsible for the killing of tens of thousands of people).
- Blocking of a major highway in Toronto with total disregard for the rights of the ordinary Canadians.
- Demands that Canada interfere in the Sri Lankan civil war.Illegal fundraising (voluntary or through extortion) for the Tamil Tigers.
- Many Tamils proudly displaying on their windshields stickers with the logo of the terrorist Tamil Tigers.
That will probably continue… The Canadian government is more than willing to turn blind eye on any questionable activity as long as the sacred cow of multiculturalism is not disturbed.
Why do the Tamils have to bring to Canada all their hatred and problems? Isn’t it time for them to show that as Canadian citizens they are loyal to their new country?
