Years from now, Canadians will apologize

Years from now, a prime minister will stand in the House of Commons and issue a formal apology to the Tamil community. He or she will "regret" the arbitrary detention of the men, women and children who landed on our shores in search of security. The prime minister will "express sorrow" over the social fury that was whipped up as this little band of survivors arrived on our western coast.
