To Those who take Advantage of Tradgedy

Written by Ieuan Dolby

Yesterday, London was hit by a series of explosions torepparttar transport system. A number of people have lost their lives and there are numerous wounded. This barbaric act, another one in this mad world of ours, has hit hard – none more so thanrepparttar 148286 Londoner andrepparttar 148287 Brit.

I called my mother yesterday, checked that all was okay. I didrepparttar 148288 normal things in life during such times, I worried and checked. This morning I switched onrepparttar 148289 news, CNN are calling it “Terror in London” – a catchy title! It looks like they are giving it twenty-four hour coverage! But it was when I switched on my computer to pick uprepparttar 148290 mornings emails, I realized that so many people in this world are supersonic fast in benefiting themselves through tragedy! One ofrepparttar 148291 emails that I received was from an Immigration Consultancy Firm in Canada called ACIC andrepparttar 148292 email was signed by a Russell Monsurate. He said: To everyone we have come to know at ACIC: We would like to express our sorrow and sympathy for those who have just experienced a very barbaric and unprovoked attack in London this morning, July 7, 2005. This was an attack not just onrepparttar 148293 United Kingdom, but onrepparttar 148294 civilized people ofrepparttar 148295 world. As Canadians we hope we speak for our country when we say our support is with those who are suffering through this trying time and withrepparttar 148296 government of Britain in their investigation into this matter. Inrepparttar 148297 end justice will prevail. I live in Taiwan. I am from Scotland; I have not been home for nearly three years! I recall inrepparttar 148298 dim past that I once hadrepparttar 148299 idea of moving to Canada and that I filled out an application form for ACIC but I am sure that nobody atrepparttar 148300 firm ever came close to “knowing me”! Why would anybody on this planet want to send me an unsolicited email likerepparttar 148301 one above? It is neitherrepparttar 148302 time nor place for Canadian Immigration Lawyers to send spam like emails whenrepparttar 148303 British are trying to cope and return to life as they once knew it!
