Saga of Sacrifice and Struggle

In May 1914, a group of 376 passengers - 340 Sikhs, 12 Hindus, and 24 Muslims, organized specifically to test Canada's “colour bar” of exclusionary immigration policies, sailed from the Orient for Vancouver on the freighter Komagata Maru.

The ship, chartered for the voyage, had been specially fitted out to accommodate passengers instead of her usual coal cargoes. Arriving in English Bay on May 23, 1914, Komagata Maru and her passengers were caught in a tug-of-war between the vessel's organizers and the Canadian government, who refused to let them land.

The Right Honorable Justin Trudeau, P.C., B. A., B.Ed.

Prime Minister of Canada

Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0A6

Dear Prime Minister:

The Federal and Provincial Governments

Have been doing a extraordinary job  on the current situation regarding COVID 19.We as Canadians will get through this and help control the situation with minimal loss to our citizens. 

Issue we want the Government to urgently take actions to bringing  our citizens stranded abroad in particular in India.Canada has always been an active partner whenever major developments occur globally and we believe Canada is behind other countries that have taken all their citizens out of India during the current lockdown in India. Current plan through the 3rd party arrangement made by the Government to have flights come via London UK is appreciated but not enough.

We  as Governments MUST direct Air Canada to resume their flights as soon as  the lockdown is lifted.Also it should be Air Canada that brings these Citizens Stranded abroad as most of these passengers traveled on Air Canada.As you are aware, Prime Minister, Canadians understand the seriousness of COVID19 and under your positive lead through local health Authorities, we Canadians will win at the end.We also need to direct our local authorities to plan for closely monitoring on the Stranded citizens on their return to Canada.

Thank you Prime Minister for guiding all Canadians under these difficult times.

We truly believe that, as the prime architect of change, your role of Prime Minister is critical to getting every Canadian abroad through this epidemic.

Yours truly

Harbhajan Gill

President
