The present government seems genuinely interested in solving the Tamil ethnic problem. LTTE should reciprocate and manifest their bona fide to achieve peace, urged Max Berger, well-known immigration lawyer in Canada in an after-dinner speech at the Federation of Association of Canadian Tamils held at the Oriole Community Central Hall, in Scarborough, Toronto, recently.

The dinner was accorded to host MPs Doug Peters, Derek Lee, Sarkis Assadourian and John Canis.

Canadian Minister of Defence, David Collenette, sent a goodwill message on the occasion which was read by Secretary of the Association. A. Vaikunthavasan, a lawyer, speaking on this occasion pointed out that the Tamil youths took to arms, only after the efforts of the conventional politicians to get the Sinhala majoritarian governments to honour agreements reached from time to time between the Tamil leaders and governments proved futile. He said: This impasse still continues.

The political morality and dependability of governments are still in doubt.


Max Berger is a native of Winnipeg, Manitoba and was educated at the University of Manitoba and York University. Mr. Berger is a graduate of Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto, Canada. He has represented immigration clients from all corners of the world and in every area of immigration law.
