Resounding 99.8 % of the Canadian Tamil Vote Mandates Independent Tamil State

TORONTO, Dec. 20 /CNW/ - Based on the official poll results, the Canadian Tamils overwhelmingly voted for the formation of the independent Tamil state in Sri Lanka.

The people who have voted in the referendum polls in Canada gave a 99.8 % mandate today that they support the formation of an independent Tamil state in Sri Lanka. They reaffirmed the Vaddukkoaddai Resolution of 1976 that called for the creation of the Tamil state, which was mandated by Tamils in the north and east of the island of Sri Lanka in the 1977 general elections. Out of 48,583 voters who turned out across Canada, 48,481 voted yes, 85 voted no and 16 were invalid.

The process was managed and monitored by ES&S, a reputable independent North American election firm.

The impressive turn out of voters has stunned media, non-Tamil poll monitors, and the broader Canadian public including Toronto city councilors Mr. Michael Thompson and Mr. Adam Giambrone who is also the Chairperson for the Toronto Transit Commission.
