Statement from Hon. Jim Karygiannis, Counsillor, ward 39 Scarborough – Agincourt
It is with a deep sense of reverence, that I join with you to remember the thousands of men, women and children who were killed during the Tamil Genocide in Sri Lanka.
Since the end of the civil war in Sri Lanka in May, 2009, there has been a marked deterioration in Sri Lanka with respect to human rights and the rule of law. The current situation is most disappointing to those who believed there was an opportunity to create a viable and strong democratic country with the end of the civil war.
We must tell the Sri Lankan government to stop the cultural genocide and submit to an international inquiry into the 2009 war.
I believe the only way to make a change is for the Diaspora to get involved.
