By Siva Sivapragasam
Prime Minister Stephen Harper and wife Laureen recently toured Scarborough, a city considered as a traditional hometown for most of the three hundred thousand strong Sri Lankan Tamil community in Canada.
Harper was in Scarborough canvassing votes for his PC party in the forthcoming Federal Election scheduled for October 19th. During his tour of Scarborough Harper and his wife Laureen also visited an Indian grocery store and learnt the skillful art of packeting “karuvetpilai” (curry leaf) leaves, a green and aromatic mint leaf that is popularly used by the Indian and Tamil communities to spice-up their curries.
Roshan Nallaratnam, the PC candidate for Scarborough South-West was also with Harper during the Prime Minister’s tour of Scarborough.
Roshan comes from a Policing background with Toronto Police Service. He is actively involved in cricket and plays for the Toronto Police cricket team. He is the only Tamil candidate contesting for the Federal Conservative Party in the upcoming election. Roshan strongly believes that the Conservative Party is a strong voice for Tamils and human rights abuses in Sri Lanka. Roshan had his education at the prestigious St. Joseph’s College in Trichy and graduated from this University affiliated College. He arrived in Canada in 2005 and joined the Toronto Police force in 2009. He is happily married and has two kids.
