Markham opens Vanni Avenue to honour city's Tamil community

Vanni Avenue, a street name dedicated to Markham’s Tamil community was declared open by the city’s mayor on Saturday.

The name was chosen to remember the historic Tamil king Pandara Vannian and the traditional Vanni region of Tamil Eelam, a Tamil cultural and historical heartland, as well as to strengthen the friendship agreement between Markham and Mullaitivu, which traditionally falls under the region.
