Aggressive Detention

Published: June 24, 2011, Author: AngelSupport

Xenophobia and lack of compassion characterize the Canadian government stance toward Tamil and other refugees. The aggressive detention proposed by the Conservative Party, where refugees would automatically be held in jail for one year without judicial review, is one of the more anti-humanitarian policies of the Harper administration. Quick to condemn resistance to state violence as terrorism, Canada offers little hope to the thousands of Tamil civilians living under 24/7 military surveillance in Sri Lanka.
