Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has said his government would soon unveil a law to deter illegal immigration in response to the arrival of rickety cargo ships carrying Tamil refugees, says AFP.


Harper had reportedly said current legislation does not go far enough to deter human smuggling and "will increase in the years to come, unless we make significant changes to our law, to provide serious deterrents."

    somehow, authorities will make system to select only the terrorists as citizens. btw, it is good for sri lanka. canadian govt will pay for it in another 20 years, when asked for a "homeland".

    Give them an uninhabited Island off Northwest Territories to set up a Homeland. No prejudice, discrimination or raw deals from Sinhalese. They will live happily ever after !

    Harper's tough stand on freezing ltte assets and his banning of the group was one of the greatest things international community ever did towards helping Sri Lanka to finish the violence off. Most of the funding previously came from Canada!
