After concerns were raised in the past two years over two vessels carrying Tamil immigrants reaching Canada, officials are now reportedly investigating whether a third ship is attempting to ferry Tamil migrants from Sri Lanka to the country.


According to The BBC, authorities are using satellites to determine the location of the ship.
 

Public safety ministry spokesman David Charbonneau has said that a third vessel was rumoured to be in international waters.
 

Canadian immigration officials have detained nine foreign nationals on Thursday, who were found hiding onboard a container ship that arrived at the Port of Montreal from Morocco.
 

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has announced that Canada will unveil a new law to deter illegal migrants and added that the current laws in the country are not efficient enough to deter human trafficking, which he says “will increase in the years to come, unless we make significant changes to our law, to provide serious deterrents”.
 

He further warned that attempts to enter Canada through migrant ships were “unacceptable” and added that the government will amend the immigration act to dither illegal immigration.
 

In August, officials detained 492 Tamil migrants who arrived on board the MV Sun Sea from Sri Lanka. In 2009, another vessel carrying 76 Tamil asylum seekers reached Columbia. (ANI)

    In a few months the Canadian Authorities will have to investigate illicit immigrants by the boat loads from Sinhalese, Muslims and other minorities also.

    What's the point? They will eventually give refugee status to all.

    citizen1 Saturday, 09 October 2010 04:42 PM

    At this rate tamil acceptance in Canadian society will go down if thy keep on forcing themselves into the place. There must be a limit to Canadian patience?

    How much Canada amend their laws, they cannot stop illegal Tamil immigration from SL. Thesee Tamils will try to illegally immigrate to Canada, even after 100-200 yrs.

    KD Saturday, 09 October 2010 09:17 AM

    Wishful thinking mate.

    Alakar Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:10 AM

    Tamils rather Refugees then Slaves, anyone can be refurees at one point. But to become slaves you have to do lots of idiotness.

    matara kolla Saturday, 09 October 2010 08:30 PM

    Magodis Thuma Sunday, 10 October 2010 04:58 AM

    It is true that Canada needs more Guerrillas since they are made in Srilanka.

    Wasantha Saturday, 09 October 2010 12:44 PM

    Very soon Canada will lose the present position being held as one of the best Country to live.
