The protests held on the streets are to intervene and to tell the Canadian government to talk to the Sri-Lankan government; everyone knows Canada is not a police dog, overreacting much? We only can do gay pride and have them stick their c.ocks out and have carabana sluts parade their tits and asses all day….people have their right to express their views even if it does relate to their home land or wherever they came from, that’s what Canada is all about…multiculturalism and people will demonstrate to try to get the government to help, I don’t get you guys.
And for the record im not from Sri Lanka, I’m Lebanese…
Makes sense but to compare Carabana and Pride to Sri Lankan protestors violating laws and impeeding other fellow landed immigrants and citizens with their protests is NOT how it should be done. Your talking about parades that are organized and allowed by the government and in most cases PAID as well, to some protestors that begin to use up our resources!! Imagine how many fn crack deals, wife beaters, child molestors, rapists.... (yes I may be going to an extreme but its to prove a point) .... where able to get away with their crimes bc our officers were too busy keeping protestors in line.
Get a petition together, get a representative that can go to the media and confront the government directly for help! Thats a much better way to deal with it than doing what they do!
Times change and life changes you have to adapt your strategy to get things done. Having said that this is a free country and Protesting is NOT multiculturalism. A Carabana parade, Portugal day, Italian Fest, Taste of the Danforth.......THAT is what Toronto/Canada is all about in terms of multi culturalism.
Im more than POSITIVE that there are high ranking and potentially influencial Sri Lankan individuals that are close to or IN the government that they can go to.
Will those ppl do anything about whats going on back home????????
LOL I think not or it would of been done by now.
