Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper has said that Canada will not allow LTTE or any other terrorist organization to operate from its soil.
The Canadian Prime Minister was expressing views regarding the MV Sun Sea vessel that entered Canadian waters carrying refugees including LTTE suspects. He said that his Government is responsible for the security of its borders and LTTE or any other terrorist organization will not be permitted to disrupt the integrity and the sovereignty of the country. The Prime Minister stressed that his government will not hesitate to heighten laws to tackle the trend.
Screening of hundreds of refugees has begun and the Canadian Prime Minister has ordered the Public Safety Minister to take stringent action if LTTE terrorists are found.
