      they r talking about national language u moron. they r not talking about teaching school children. this is more important than teaching school children a language.

  3. The CANADIAN GOVERNMENT should know that even if GOD came down to the EARTH, the implementation of the National Language Policy could be implemented. The Sinhala Governments always have got their excuses in the form of OPPOSITION PARTIES and unaccepted excuses. Tamil People of this land will never get their Fair share in the next ten thousand years. So the Governments of the other countries should ACT to ACTION THE RIGHT ACT. Otherwise it will be just wasting their time and prolonging the PAINS of the Tamils.
