TORONTO, May 10 /CNW/ - In light of the protest on the Gardiner
Expressway, Mayor David Miller is calling for calm and for Tamil demonstrators
to peacefully relocate their protest to a safer location.
"Toronto's Tamil community is understandably concerned about what is
happening to friends and family in Sri Lanka. They have an absolute right to
make those concerns known and to protest. Endangering public safety by
occupying the Gardiner or other public highways is not the right way to make
"Like all Torontonians, I want to see a peaceful end to the conflict in
Sri Lanka and hope members of the international community, including the
Federal Parliament, will use their influence to see that humanitarian aid
flows to the affected area.
"I am confident the Toronto Police Service will ensure that public safety
is preserved and protected."
