    Canada has a sizable Sri lankan Tamil population migrated from Elam during the "ethnic cleansing" in 1983. Canada and Germany are two Countries that accommodated readily these unfortunate people when they were scattered aimlessly.
    These hard working, and religious people took their cultural heritage and language where ever they migrated. These are the people who built Hindu temples in UK, France, Scandinavian countries, USA, Canada and Australia with their earnings.

    Canada celebrates the month of January 2018 as Tamil month. The present PM is a friend of Tamils.
