The snow covered freezing temperature in Ottawa, did not deter the large expatriate Sri Lankan community and other special guests who attended the 66th Anniversary of Sri Lanka's National Day celebrations held on 9th February organized by the Sri Lanka High Commission in Ottawa at the prestigious National Library & Archives Auditorium.
Following the hoisting of the National flag and other items in the official programme, Ms. Deborah Chatsis, Director, South Asia Relations, Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada conveyed greetings of the Government of Canada to the Sri Lanka National Day. Dr Peter Meincke, President of the Ottawa Branch of the Royal Commonwealth Society of Canada spoke of the importance of the Commonwealth links and congratulated Sri Lanka on assuming the Chairmanship of the Commonwealth in November 2013.

Press Statement on Hon. Rathika Sitsabaiesan's Visit to Sri Lanka
Wednesday, 08 January 2014 18:26
While Sri Lankan authorities handled this issue in a responsible manner, the statement made by Ms. Sitsabaiesan on 1st January 2014 posted in the NDP website that she was subject to ‘political intimidation’ is erroneous and is an attempt to unfairly embarrass the Sri Lanka Government. Moreover this stated position could be indicative of her seeking to engage in political activity, and being unable to do so in the interest of abiding by Sri Lanka’s immigration laws and regulations, seems to have been interpreted by her as political intimidation. The reference in the same statement on defending principles of human rights further demonstrates a self appointed role to pass judgment baselessly on a sovereign State.
