Meanwhile out on the west coast the Tamil "boat people" continue to be detained as the federal government makes a glacially slow decision on their fate, more likely than not trying to find a way to ship them back to Sri Lanka with the minimum possible fuss. As has been reported before on this blog Canadian citizens in Vancouver have organized weekly demonstrations in solidarity with the Tamils, demanding that they be allowed to stay in Canada. They call them "noise demonstrations". Here is the latest announcement from the immigrant solidarity group No One Is Illegal Vancouver calling for more noise in the upcoming two weekends.
