if they were really fleeing for safety, they would have gone to one of the neighbouring countries. not pay $40,000 each to criminals, go halfway around the world to try and get into australia, and then again 1000s of miles more to get to canada when aus sent them away. some of the men on board the ship talked to journalists (using skype on a laptop- ROFL) about how they left their women and children behind, "in danger"- and saved just their own skin, apparently- hilarious.
just economic migrants who wouldn't get in legally dressed up as refugees, the only people losing out because of them will be the real refugees. no sympathy.

just for contrast- the real Tamil refugees fled to India- and are now even starting to go back to Sri lanka as the war is over.
