Hot on the heels of the 14th anniversary of the war victory,Sri Lanka is heading for a diplomatic battle with Canada once again after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made a statement yesterday in recognition of what is called ‘Tamil Genocide Remembrance Day, the day when the war ended in Sri Lanka 14 years ago .

Sri Lankan Foreign Minister Ali Sabry said Sri Lanka denounces the statement which he cited unhelpful to the reconciliation process locally .

The Canadian leader in his statement said, “Today, we reflect on the tragic loss of life during the armed conflict in Sri Lanka, which ended 14 years ago. Tens of thousands of Tamils lost their lives, including at the massacre in Mullivaikal, with many more missing; injured, or displaced. Our thoughts are with the victims, survivors, and their loved ones, who continue to live with the pain caused by this senseless violence.

The stories of Tamil-Canadians affected by the conflict - including many I have met over the years in communities across the country - serve as an enduring reminder that human rights, peace, and democracy cannot be taken for granted. That's why Parliament last year unanimously adopted the motion to make May18 Tamil Genocide Remembrance Day. Canada will not stop advocating for the rights of the victims and survivors of this conflict, as well as for all in Sri Lanka who continue to face hardship.

In October 2022, we joined our international partners in adopting an United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) resolution that calls on the Sri Lankan government to address the human rights, economic, and political crises in the country. Canada has been a global leader in the adoption of other UNHRC resolutions calling for freedom of religion, belief, and pluralism in Sri Lanka - essential elements to secure peace and reconciliation in the years to com - and we will continue our work to safeguard human rights across the world. And in January 2023, our government imposed sanctions against four Sri Lankan government officials in response to human rights violations on the island.

On behalf of the Government of Canada, I invite all Canadians to recognize the many contributions that Tamil-Canadians have made - and continue to make - to our country. I also encourage everyone to learn more about the impact of the armed conflict in Sri Lanka, and express solidarity to all those who suffered or lost loved ones,"

The Global Affairs Ministry of Canada had informed in advance to the Sri Lankan authorities about the statement to be made . Daily Mirror learns that the Sri Lankan authorities requested for recognition of local reconciliation efforts , but it had not been acceded to by the Canadian authorities.

Canada’s Ontario province has declared the Tamil genocide week despite protests by the Sri Lankan government(Kelum Bandara)

    It is ajoke local reconciliation efforts. What is happening is continued structural Genocide led by Mahaweli development authority Archaeological department and Forest department ably supported occupational army and racist police department

    Punchi Friday, 19 May 2023 07:56 AM

    Ou most powerful and prosperous buddhist paradise must immediately impose sanctions like banning all lankan financial aid to Canada, tea and apparel exports etc to Canada and also contemplate punitive military action using our most powerful and enormous military apparatus which we have maintained for an event like this

    Sunil Friday, 19 May 2023 08:07 AM

    Way to go Sir. Stand firm by your statement. The Jarapakshas were having a field day in Sri Lanka. It still continues.

    Amal Heennilame Friday, 19 May 2023 08:17 AM

    Canada and the US uses human rights to pressure countries that they want to control. Have they spoken against the continuing genocide in palastain? The illegal wars against Yugoslavia, Iraq libiya Syria Yemen Afghanistan?

    Daya Friday, 19 May 2023 08:21 AM

    The Sri Lankan government is fooling the local and International communities with the reconciliation process. In fact, there is no such process, just in papers only. Srl Lankan politicians have no backbone to have a reconciliation process such as what was in South Africa, and Rwanda etc., When someone wants to bring in reconciliation, then political parties as well as some racists make in political issues for their survival. We have suffered with this political thinking for the last 75 years and will continue to suffer for the next decade or so.

    Lankan uncle Friday, 19 May 2023 08:27 AM

    It's disappointing to hear various politically expedient versions of what happened in Sri Lanka in 80s, 90s and up until 2009. Younger generation perhaps can put this entire issue behind them and forge ahead as one country. Those who espouse ethnic and religious hatred must be sidelined and ignored so that the country can progress. Whatever said and done both groups exploit the painful memories and immense destruction that took place in this country for political gain. That's the crux....

    DOT Friday, 19 May 2023 08:33 AM

    Such moves will never help for real/ genuine reconciliation @, ground level. Which will add salt to the healing wound. I am a moderate Sri Lankan!

    Think Friday, 19 May 2023 08:38 AM

    Do the great eastern philosophies such as given to this world by a Hindu by birth the great Buddha or modern science and psychology, promote the repeated remembrance of torture and misery within an wholesome unit, oneself, family or country?

    Mahila Friday, 19 May 2023 08:44 AM

    What was stated by Trudeau is a STATEMENT OF FACT!! So is that of ALI SABRY (AS)!! Fruits of statement of Trudeau is visible - Nandikadal for all to see!!! So AS also must make his claims of Peace and Reconciliation efforts to be realised and the effects of it appear in Reality, it to be confirmed FACT, WHICH WOULD REALISE THE FRUITS OF HIS AND RW EFFORTS OF RECNCILIATION A REALITY!!! All’s good that ends well!! Important IS realising the OUTCOMES - not SPEECH IN VAIN!!!

    Dolly Dias Friday, 19 May 2023 08:45 AM

    Pure politics there will be an election soon in Canada and Justin Trudeau is just buying votes. He should be more concerned about the 1000 of first nation children that were murdered in residential school under the watchful eye of the Canadian government. Dolly

    Anne Friday, 19 May 2023 09:00 AM

    What about the thousands of indigenous Canadian children who were found killed and buried in residential schools? Trudeau is not concerned about those because they don't get him votes. Trudeau is interfering into the internal affairs of smaller countries just to stay relevant and get votes. He wouldn't do anything about issues in Canada.

    Christo255 Friday, 19 May 2023 09:07 AM

    Trudeau lives in a country where loads and loads of tamil origin and Indian origin people migrate to which far outstrips sinhala speaking migrants and he needs every single vote of that tamilian diaspora to hang onto power. That's logic and politics for you.

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 19 May 2023 11:57 AM

    So that is the justification you can give for not investigating the criminality happening here?

    Thomas Dharmachandra Friday, 19 May 2023 09:13 AM

    Leave aside the talk of genocide of Tamils by the Sri Lankan govt, Now what is happening to the Aragalaya participants 95% Sinhalese, are hounded by the Sri Lankan police and ruling party thugs. The SL govt don't care whether they are Sinhalese or Tamils, will oppress who are against the govt.

    Chris Friday, 19 May 2023 12:01 PM

    You will be surprised at the number of Sinhalese leaving to Canada. If the Sinhalese can remember that scum Wijeweera why can't the Tamils remember their dead?

    Perera JP Friday, 19 May 2023 09:15 AM

    To have his votes secrued this jack will tell anything the day terror comes over then this bugger will cry then SL also should give a statement saying that when you walk on the mud and come in you bring the sand with you

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 19 May 2023 12:06 PM

    But Sri Lanka from independence and after British handed over governance to the local yakkos has always been into State Criminality. Look at the number of unsolved killings for a small island as this? Will you say this same thing if you child or brother or father was Thajudeen, Ekneligoda, Trinco Students, Lasantha? Are you proud of a President whose first task after getting elected was to pardon a child killer Sunil Ratnayake? Did 69% yakkos of this nation vote for this mayhem? Can they ever be corrected or attain true Buddhist values to say right is right and wrong is wrong?

    mahalimgam Friday, 19 May 2023 09:21 AM

    can Ali Sabry explain what " local reconciliation" process has taken place in the last 14 years. His predecessor Prof.G.L. Peiris had been saying this for the past decade, where are the tangible results. On the contrary the SL Army is carrying out racial wholesale discrimination in the North- building Buddhist temples where there are no Buddhist, monks and army cordoning off land access to ancient Hindu temples. The main stream Colombo newspapers and news channels do not even report this

    Tariq Friday, 19 May 2023 09:26 AM

    Why doesn't the Sri Lankan government speak about the Canadian governments atrocities in the Middle East. Haven't they killed innocent people. Are they statues that they killed for fun.

    Ranjith Friday, 19 May 2023 09:28 AM

    Justin Trudeau is known to pander to Canadian minorities to secure their votes. The next election over there is scheduled to take place on or before 20 October 2025. So he is in the keeping happy business.

    Mads jansen Friday, 19 May 2023 09:28 AM

    Terrence K Friday, 19 May 2023 09:32 AM

    Year in and year out on the day of the War Victory we see many adverse comments of this country. Instead of trying to camouflage the incidents which happened during this period why not we address the issues which have been highlighted without shielding the culprits who are involved. What I see is there is a reluctance by all politicians to stand by the Truth which is sacred feeling that they will be labelled as Traitors of the Majority Community. We need bold statesmen without Fear or Favour to go into the grassroots of these incidents and redress the issues which need to be rectified otherwise we will see this matter continuing even after 13 years of this War as sins of these crimes will be interred with the bones of these perpetrators.

    Disappointing that the word terrorism seems to have been completely forgotten by these 'hier than thou' hypocrites.

    Losses were on both sides Friday, 19 May 2023 09:52 AM

    It take two to Tango. So does a war. Politicians on both sides nurtured the conflict so that they can win election. Nations like India supported one party for their own benefit while Sri Lankan (which include all Lanka races) died in a proxy war. There were losses on both sides. If a Tamil lost his life, so did the non-Tamils . Central Bank building in Colombo is a standing monument. In the end the more powerful won. What is there to celebrate? We should all mourn for blunder

    down under Friday, 19 May 2023 10:02 AM

    He is spot on. Can someone explain what reconciliation process any successive Governments have started? None!! There were many opportunities but no one had the guts or determination to go ahead. Sri Lanka would have been much better country after the war was over if it was the case. Even now plenty of human rights violations and no one can speak against the wrong doings of the govt without being arrested. Sad.

    Sounda Friday, 19 May 2023 10:09 AM

    The only reconciliation process is TWO STATES IN ONE COUNTRY which has different language, religion, culture, ethnicity, traditional living areas. In the UK SAME LANGUAGE BUT FOUR STATES. In USA SAME LANGUAGE 51 states. In India several languages 29 states all in one COUNTRY. There are several contries having several states in one country.

    Jude Friday, 19 May 2023 10:15 AM

    Trudeau and his liberal party will never change their stance!! Here's thing, there's about 200,000 Tamil voters in Ontario especially in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) and 99% of them voting liberal party!! Out of 338 federal ridings 121 from Ontario, and 80% immigrants reside in Ontario. Go figure, do you expect him to say otherwise!?? Remember, he's a Politician and he's the PM and Trudeau',s Liberal party in power thanks to NDP The third force. In fact he called snap elections in 2021under 2 years after he got ELECTED and on both occasions liberal party didn't get the popular vote, it was the PC party that got the popular vote. However, Trudeau manage to cut a unscrupulous deal with the Turban-wearing Indian and Sikh,The NDP leader Jagmeet Singh. In the last federal election only 33% of Caucasian cast the vote. So it's 67% Immigrants Mostly consist of Asians voting at federal election in other words it's the Asians that putting Trudeau in power!!

    Dan Friday, 19 May 2023 03:45 PM

    Very good analysis. The Sri Lankan government should look at the facts in Canada if these figures are accurate and publicize it internationally. The hell with Canadian contributions to Sri Lanka.

    Lumbini Friday, 19 May 2023 10:33 AM

    While ignoring the appalling testimonies of survivors of Canada’s residential school system reported by the UN, Justin Trudeau is raising voice on Sri Lanka. How hypocritic? This is not to justify sickening human rights violation in Sri Lanka.

    Jack Andersen Friday, 19 May 2023 10:48 AM

    Main fundraiser for his campaign is Tamil diasporas. Trudeau Is puppet of Tamil diasporas, when they say jump he will say how high. Trudeau Is no different to Sri Lankan government cronies.

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 19 May 2023 10:51 AM

    If nothing happened, why is Sri Lanka reluctant to allow a independent inquiry by the UN on all the suspected criminality that took place during the war? That reluctance itself answers the truth. Hiding under "sovereignty, interference or internal issue" from not allowing a credible investigation is the cowardice of the nation.

    Jude Friday, 19 May 2023 11:21 AM

    Now you be the judge!! After final phase in 2009, there was Commonwealth leaders meeting in Colombo and Canadian PM Harper boycotted. Couple of years prior to that PM Harper visited Republic of Congo aka killing fields of Africa. Now Harper visited for french speaking summit,. But the real purpose of his visit was to cut deals with mineral resources rich Congo Military junta. Now Congo records 200,000 rapes a year and military junta killing opponents around 3000-4000 a month. Now tell me WHAT KIND OF HYPOCRISY IS THIS,!???

    Punchi Friday, 19 May 2023 11:34 AM

    We should not criticize our reconciliation process. Just visit the North to see the number of Buddhist statues and temples we are constructing in every available space to bring the benefits of Buddhism to the people of there and save their souls

    Can Thamby Ali Sabry explain what reconsiliation has been implemented over the last 13 years?? His racist.godfather GR and MR together have looted the country by having grand victory day celebrations. Whereas the goverment do not permit the Tamils to commerate their dead. Is this reconciliation.? Even the national anthem in Tamil is withdrawn.

    Ram Friday, 19 May 2023 12:21 PM

    Trudeau must first study the issues before making irresponsible statements. Who started the war, who bombed the Central Bank, Dalada Maligawa, devotees at Sri Maha Bodhiya etc. Was there a reason for that. Haven't the Sri Lankan Sinhalese domiciled in Canada not contributed to Canadian economy. Trudeau your mouth smells of terrorism

    KD Friday, 19 May 2023 12:28 PM

    This is an unacceptable statement from Trudeau. Okay some civilians definitely died in the last stages of the war. But you have to look at what really happened. We had a terrorist leader holding people hostage. That's the truth. US and Canadian forced 'liberated' Iraq and Afghanisthan, how many people died unnecessarily? Here we had a war that was 30 years . It needed to end. This one-sided nonsense about Tamil Genocide needs to end. There was never ANY Tamil genocide in Sri Lanka. There was discrimination yes. But no genocide.

    Hello Hello Friday, 19 May 2023 12:35 PM

    First of all does Ali Sabry understand the meaning of reconciliation. What Canada saying is the truth. Has SL government ever spoken the truth and will never ever speak the truth.

    Be a True Leader Friday, 19 May 2023 12:47 PM

    Rather than mere talk for Tamil votes if he is genuinely concerned about Tamil plight give a part of his vast land he grabbed from aboriginals for a Tamil Homeland. Tamil Problem is over then.

    Mandayan Friday, 19 May 2023 01:27 PM

    Our Foreign Minister was brought into politics by Gota who was banned in Canada. Gota was his client as a lawyer. So what could be expected from him instead of defending his clients internationally too. Now that the nation is begging there is no point in talking nonsenses. Once Tigers tried their best to prove there were not terrorists and it is government turn to prove they are working on reconciliation but the fact is Tamils can’t even remember their dead but the JVPer can.

    jayt Friday, 19 May 2023 01:39 PM

    It is also, time for Sri lanka to seek support from the other part of the to put jews in canada, US and Europe on genocide charges along with Canada, US And Europe who protect jews world of crime. Lybia,Syria,Afghanistan, Somalia and eastern Europe wars, corona virus and russian Ukraine wars , al qada,and issis wars are full product of jews and these western countries who promoted jews in palastinian and genoding palestinians. Now the BRIC countries have to watch out that these countries will direct the jews to activate issis and al qeada to attack Africa union countries to fully destroy AU economic as a part of greater plan to block the world become independent from jews and western countries to block the use of Chinese currency, best way to direct terrorists attack around the globe, part of it already began in Sudan.

    I am determined for overcoming ethnocentrism in Sri Lanka and for reconciliation between Tamils ​​and Sinhalese ! Sinhalese and Tamils ​​have lived together on this beautiful island for more than 2000 years! Several Tamil kings have been rulers, King Elara's burial place is in Anuradhapura! Dutugemunu showed him human respect! Trudeau's view of the terrorist war in Sri Lanka in favor of the Tamils ​​is a one-sided, politically motivated view!!! Human rights violations by the army must be the subject of the reconciliation process in the same way as the terrorist war waged with unbelievable brutality by Prabhakaran and the LTTE against the state and its own people! Reconciliation can only succeed by presenting the truth of the facts!!! Despite all this, the supreme goal should be the unity of the nation!!!

    Rathnavali Friday, 19 May 2023 02:19 PM

    Unnecessary statement from Trudeau. Sri Lanka government should do more for Tamils in the North and East and make them feel that they belong to this country. But that is an issue for us to resolve. Trudeau should first ascertain what he has done for those suffering in war ravaged countries such as Syria and the Congo.

    Prasa Friday, 19 May 2023 02:32 PM

    Justin pandering to the vote base with no understanding of the full picture on how the country suffered for 30 years due to terrorist attacks.

    A Canadian Tamil Friday, 19 May 2023 03:38 PM

    Mr. Prime minister, Sri Lankans are very happy to know that you support Tamil Eelam so much and we call upon all Eelam supporting refugees in Canada to set up the homeland in such a beautiful and developed country that really values our struggle and aspirations. Moreover considering the experience Eelam people have in terrorism and Canadian politics, the honourable Prime minister will be too frightened to say no. Finally Eelam will become an independent country in such a developed and beautiful country. Besides Canadian democracy definitely does not suit Eelam as we have seen, so do implement all executions and punishments necessary in Eelam Canada. It is helpful for all Canadian Tamils as well. We know very well how to handle Canadians ... :)

    ranjit Friday, 19 May 2023 05:30 PM

    @Ram,why was the war started, because the tamils have been oppressed by the majority since independence and were treated as inferiors. If you study the world history when a section of people treat another section of people as inferiors, there is always a revolution e.g. French revolution, russian revolution etc. Hope SDM will publish this so thatpeople will know both sides of the story

    sunil Friday, 19 May 2023 06:11 PM

    Canada is not a global power and, is just a piece of land if not for the trade it has with the USA. Sri Lanka should not give much prominance to a statement by leader of such country.

    jayt Friday, 19 May 2023 06:20 PM

    That is not the issue. Tamil will use it undermine sinhalese. Tamil were brought to Canada, US and Europe to got them global power and undermine Sri lanka step by step. For example, look how they decieved palestinians and settled European jews and now no more Palestine and next 100 year covert operation half of these population will disappear. Do not never trust tamil. These white men and women run one global government with jews. Every war, they supply propaganda to white population and keep under control until they finished raping that country and achieve their goal. It desnot matter which country it is. I don't if you are a population sinhalese spy or Tamil tiger or European Jewish spy who acting as a sinhalese make stamant to "influence " undercover. This is how western spies and jews spies have working on srilanka . For example, one spy in a western country, set up leader To make statements against Sri lanka and then, they set up sinhalese spies and Tamil spies in Sril

    Sunil Friday, 19 May 2023 06:20 PM

    If the Sinhalese want to prosper and do well and get respect internationally, they must never allow politicians, nationalists and some clergy to create rifts, division among communities and insist that all human beings in Sri Lanka are equal irrespective of their backgrounds. they must also never claim any priority or preference based on race and religion. Power must be shared by all and every being must be proud that he is SRI LANKAN first and then only sinhalese, tamil, muslim, burgher etc. Only genuine and sincere attempt by all people can heal wounds and we can move forward. But if a good set of law abiding and decent sinhalese keep quiet to the acts of these rowdy racists, then the whole country will suffer.

    jayt Friday, 19 May 2023 06:36 PM

    If it is just hypocrisy ok, but western hypocrisy is linked to killing millions of people around the globe by creating wars in last 70 years. So it is not only their problem but their problem became large scales of wars and raped other countries which never harmed western countries.

    Martin Friday, 19 May 2023 07:05 PM

    All financial assistance to Canada should be stopped and Canadian High Commissioner should be expelled and our man in Canada should be called back. Send a war ship or two near Canada. We should teach a lesson to these Canadians!

    Buddhist Friday, 19 May 2023 07:25 PM

    Which part of Trudeau's statement is SL opposing? The only thing that I can think of is declaration of Genocide day which was done a few years ago. Other than this there is no statement of Trudeau that's not true. So why is this postering by SL? To show we can oppose or was it done at the instigation of SL's Chinese Masters who are at loggerheads with Canada due to Chinese political illegal activities on Canadian soil??

    Kumara Friday, 19 May 2023 07:35 PM

    I can see Canadan PM's statements, Canada will be the first to recognise an independent country for Tamils.

    Kathir Saturday, 20 May 2023 01:00 AM

    Now Sri Lanka is going to celebrate army victory but from where did you get the funds to celebrate hero’s victory??? Why can’t Sri Lankan gouvernement remove all army camps from North and Morth east to please western countries?

    Kathir Saturday, 20 May 2023 01:04 AM

    To Rathnavali First all arm forces should be removed from Tamil areas to make Tamil to feel well Perhaps Tamils living in 27 countries might come back to live here by creating their own companies in the north

    Tharanga Saturday, 20 May 2023 03:43 PM

    When the LTTE was banned in Canada, its supporters in Canada and around the world cried foul and now the opposite is happening. What's go around will come around.

    Sammy Monday, 22 May 2023 09:07 AM

    Canada is known to provide haven to international separatists like Khalistanis, Ealamists etc. It has become a valuable vote bank for Justin Trudeau.
