“All Canadian aid for Tsunami relief would be channelled through our own organisations and equitable distribution is the bottom line of our humanitarian aid for relief, rehabilitation and reconstruction” said Hon.

“Mr. S.P.Thamilchelvan earnestly requested him to convey the desire of the Tamil people to the Canadian Prime Minister, to include the North coast locations, Mullaittivu and Vadamaradchy East in his itinerary. He also pointed out the special significance of the Canadian Head of State’s visit to the Tamil habitats vis-à-vis the sentiments of the Tamil people provided asylum in Canada with respect and dignity,” the report further said.
