Seaman wrote a letter of thanks to the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario on behalf of millions of Tamils around the world for their initiative in setting up the Tamil Community Center. The details are as follows: The United States Government of Canada and the State Government of Ontario have provided US $ 26.3 million for the establishment of a “Tamil Community Center” in the State of Ontario, Canada. Canada is another motherland that has embraced and supported the Tamil people who sought it and healed the tragic wounds of their past.
Similarly, the Tamil people have worked tirelessly for the progress and development of Canada, where they have lived. I think Canada has come forward to set up such a special ‘Tamil Community Center’ in such a way as to truly and honestly highlight the Tamil community that has flourished for over forty years. The new Tamil Community Center will have a multi-purpose museum, an art gallery, an outdoor theater, a library, a cultural gallery, mental health services, a recreation center for the elderly, and multi-educational entertainment venues. There is no doubt that the forthcoming Tamil Community Center will mark another milestone in the ongoing efforts of the Government of Canada and the State of Ontario to honor the language, art, literature, culture and homeland liberation struggle of Tamils as Tamil Cultural Month and Tamil Genocide Awareness Week.
It is commendable that the Government of Canada’s lofty mission is to not only treat all citizens equally and fulfill their basic needs, but also to preserve the cultural elements of the unique national races living in its own country, despite emigration. On behalf of the millions of Tamils around the world, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario for their initiative in establishing such a proud Tamil Community Center, and to express my appreciation and congratulations to each of the Tamil relations who have worked to establish the Tamil Community Center. Thus it is said.
