We the family of Prabhdeep will not take this sitting down. We are not willing to so easily give up on this precious life. A person that went to great lenghts to train for 6 years as a Reservist in the Canadian Armed forces so that he could be of service to his country and countrymen in a time of need. Well now it is your turn and it is his time of need. What have you chosen to do. Take the word of the NSW over that of your own citizens? We are ashamed of this administration's choice to merely push along paperwork, instead of easily taking some action that could have made a big difference. You had the choice and your choice was to do nothing.

Email conversation with Diane Ablonczy’s office
Some additional words from Mandeep Srawn (sister).Date: Fri, 7 Jun 2013 19:53:42 +1000Subject: Re: Letter on search for Prabhdeep SrawnFrom: mandeep.srawn@gmail.comTo: rubys22@hotmail.comCC: ashley.mcarthur@international.gc.ca; diane.ablonczy@parl.gc.ca;helene.laverdiere.a2@parl.gc.ca; paul.dewar@parl.gc.ca;kyle.seeback@parl.gc.ca; bob.rae.a1@parl.gc.ca;bob.rae@rogers.blackberry.net; amneet.singh@parl.gc.ca;bal.gosal@parl.gc.ca; pram.gill@parl.gc.ca; jsingh-qp@ndp.on.ca;bairdj@parl.gc.ca; justin.trudeau@parl.gc.ca; pm@pm.gc.caThanks Ruby. I'm Prabh's sister who is on the ground here. The reasonI'm not writing you is because I don't have the time to discuss myconcerns with you if you're not willing to help. However, some newinformation we got today is incredibly frustrating, upsetting and is noteven remotely SATISFACTORY! Regardless of what the NSW police aretelling you, its important you know this information so that after this isall done there's a proper inquest into all parties involved who decidedsearch efforts were "complete and satisfactory". How is a searchcomplete before you find the person you're searching for? Hecouldn't have just disappeared up there.At today's briefing the police officer suggested we, as in Prabhsfamily/friends and other volunteers, not rule out the Lady NorthcoteCanyon because they've found people in there before and since thevoices came from there we should attempt to search it. They said we'd
 
need ropes and harnesses and someone with experience of mountainclimbing should definitely go in. To recap, Lady Northcote Canyon is anarea that they claimed to search extensively. I started askingquestions, of whether it was searched by foot or by air, I was FINALLYtold it could only be searched by air b/c there wasn't room to walk hadhe been there. Also, you needed harnesses and ropes for it. I also findit extremely frustrating to make them understand the simple fact thatyou don't need ropes and harness's to fall. Prabh easily could've lost
his footing and fell into ANY area where they think it’s difficult for him
to have gotten to. They are NOW telling us that there are severalboulders that should be searched and room to walk. If these are themost experienced and professional hikers out there, why haven't theysent a mountain climber to search that area? Why did they lie to methis entire time, did they want us to wait for him to die? HOW are yousatisfied that they're doing all they can when they're asking us tosearch in certain areas they didn't feel like going?! WHY does the AFP,State Emergency Services and NSW police not have a SINGLE mountainclimber who could've ruled out this area? Again, HOW are yousatisfied? How is this complete when they themselves haven't coveredBASIC areas? Walking the main trail over and over again won'tproduce results - we all know he's not there!I asked about UAVs the first day when the voices were heard to getinto the canyon and Little Austria area that were deemed toodangerous to search by foot. I was told no, they don't have thattechnology. I was advised to send an email to the police two days agoregarding all my concerns; I again requested the UAV technology whenwe were able to locate several private teams. The commissioner THENsaid he would look into it and they had already put in order however it
wouldn't be here until June 20th for use. That’s inexcusable
- they had
 
resources they didn't use.As Ruby mentioned Commander Box wanted to call off the search onthe first day we landed. If it weren't for the voices the following dayI'm confident they would've. The voices in the low terrain told us hewas well below the snowline implying hypothermia wasn't the issue.Also there are thousands of sources of water every few meters. Now if this was your loved one and you were heard him cry for help on the8th day and your "expert" told you he only had 14 days to live (whichdefinitely isn't the case with ALL the experts and locals I've consulted)wouldn't you call as many resources as you could to cover as muchground as possible? Bushwalking teams (EXPERIENCED AND LICENSED)such as ACT Bushwalking team and Canberra Bushwalking team haveover 50 volunteers willing to go out and assist immediately once thepolice requests it. They wouldn't, even when we suggested it. I askedwhat they're expert based he's time limit on, they didn't know. Prabhalways used to say its so difficult to starve yourself b/c eating an ant orespecially a caterpillar (ONE) will give you enough protein, zinc andiron for weeks! They don't even know what these experts are basingtheir theory on.The areas deemed "too dangerous" we went out and searchedourselves. Inexperienced beginner bushwalkers and even myself whohas zero tolerance for cold easily did it.Requesting accurate information about certain locations they'vesearched took days. I had police officers tell me point blank, "look, wedid it. We searched it" But they hadn't (proven by the GPS marked onthe map they provided). This set back our private teams by DAYS!Basic PR is an issue with the NSW police. We're a grieving family
