Risk of losing citizenship for thousands of Sri Lankan in Canada
TNA MP Suresh Premachandran says that according to the new laws passed in Canada, 140,000 Sri Lankan expatriates are at risk of losing their citizenship.
As per the immigration law passed by the Canadian government recently, the privileges enjoyed by those born in Canada will not be offered to migrants.
This is due to the Canadian government’s decision to consider expatriates in Canada as 2nd class citizens.
MP Suresh Premachandran stated that due to this reason, a large number of Sri Lankan Tamil expatriates may lose their citizenship in Canada.
