[b]"Don't fall prey to the tigers":Canadian Tamils for Peace appeal to the Tamils[/b]

[b]Toronto, 06 May, ( [/b]Canadian Tamils for Peace has appealed to the Tamils in Canada not to fall prey to the tigers but reject the call made by the Canadian Tamil Congress, which is a front organisation of the LTTE, to participate in the Tamil solidarity gathering in Toronto from May 8th to May 14th.

In a statement released to the press, Canadian Tamils for Peace, said: " It can be recalled that in a meeting held at the Scarborough Town Centre, members of the CTC heckled former Premier of Ontario Mr. Bob Rae while he was addressing the crowd. Not only the killings, suicide bombings, child recruitment and extortion by the LTTE in Sri Lankan forced the Canadian Government to ban the LTTE, but also the undemocratic activities of the front organisations of the LTTE in Canada."

Canadian Tamils for Peace pointed out that the so called LTTE front leaders like S. Sithampalam and Nehru Guna have distanced themselves from the LTTE. "Now they are asking the innocent Tamils to participate in the Tamil solidarity gathering. Once again the ban was brought against the LTTE, hence its front organisations ands its leaders have been affected. LTTE is trying to apply its usual method of getting things done their way by intimidation using the Tamils. But the Canadian government will not bow down to the tigers."
