Canadian Tamils Hit the Polls on December 19th, 2009

TORONTO, Dec. 17 /CNW/ - The Coalition for Tamil Elections Canada is conducting a referendum across major Canadian cities on Saturday, December 19, 2009, from 9am to 9pm to verify the collective consensus of Tamil Canadians, in regards to a viable democratic solution in their homeland.

As witnessed by fellow Canadians earlier this year, the Tamil Canadians, the largest amongst them are the Tamil Community from the Island of Sri Lanka, hit the streets in major cities in Canada. They were pleading for help to save their relatives from the brutal war in Sri Lanka. According to reliable reports over 20,000 of them perished in the first two weeks of May 2009 alone.

Moving forward to reaffirm the political destiny of their relatives and promote human rights and democratic values that should be respected in Sri Lanka, thousands of Canadian Tamils are expected to hit the polling stations across the country and cast their votes in this history making event. The polling will be conducted with the assistance of a reputable Canadian Company.

Coalition for Tamil Elections Canada has been created to fulfill the needs of the Tamil Canadians to gather surveys, conduct opinion polls, elections and referendums amongst them. Throughout the evolution of this democratic and electoral process, the officials and volunteers will be working hard to bring about maximum fairness and transparency in order to ensure the prevalence of democratic values.
