Canada's National Post reported that the office of the Ontario Premier has confirmed the Premier's meeting with Nehru Gunaratnam, a former spokesman for the World Tamil Movement (WTM), a federally listed terrorist organization in Canada, while on a visit to a Toronto temple on January 14.
The Premier and Gunaratnam along with city councilor Michelle Berardinetti and Liberal MPP Lorenzo Berardinetti have attended the event at the Kanthasamy Hindu Temple to celebrate Thai Pongal.
