‘Toronto Sun’, a Canadian newspaper has appreciated the Sri Lankan Government’s resettlement process. The facilities extended to the persons displaced by terrorism and resettled also earned accolades.
“Toronto Sun” is a newspaper which was critical of the Sri Lankan Government on various occasions in the past. A latest report appearing in the paper has said that it was amazed over the programme mooted by the Government to resettle the displaced. More than 228,000 civilians were displaced by the conflict and only less than 35,000 civilians are to be resettled. Every week, at least three thousand civilians are being resettled.
It is the opinion of the Canadian newspaper that this is significant and amazing. The resettlement process has entered the final phase setting an example to the entire world. The paper said the Tamil civilians are now enjoying real freedom with the total elimination of terrorism from the country.
