India Angered over Justin Trudeau's Defense of Unnamed Official

Surrey Centre MP Randeep Sarai

Though Trudeau has maintained that he does not support Sikh extremists in the past as well as during his India visit, the Canadian media published several photographs of Trudeau with Atwal.

According to the write-up, another blunder that went unnoticed was when the Canadian Prime Minister noted "in a speech in New Delhi that Canada had just celebrated its 100th birthday - off by 50 years".

In the briefing, Jean suggested Atwal's invitation to events with Trudeau in Mumbai was arranged by factions within the Indian government who want to prevent Prime Minister Narendra Modi from getting too cosy with a foreign government they believe is not committed to a united India. The invite was later rescinded.

"I was shocked at the incompetence it must have taken for the PMO or the RCMP or the High Commission to actually accomplish this-that you have a convicted attempted assassin...who is now hobnobbing with the elite of Canadian politics", Dosanjh told CTV News at the time.

During Trudeau's first question period since returning to Canada, opposition MPs grilled him over the invitation issued to Atwal.

Le Pen is even considering rebranding the party founded by her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen 45 years ago, with a new name. France's National Assembly took a vote in fall, lifting the immunity that was protecting Le Pen from prosecution.

A controversial guest at a meet-and-greet with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has the MP responsible for the invitation blaming his inexperienced staff.

Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau's Liberal Party thwarted a bid from the Opposition Conservative Party on Thursday to get National Security Advisor Daniel Jean to testify in Parliament for his assertion that rogue factions in the Indian government sabotaged Trudeau's India trip by securing a visa for Jaspal Atwal, reports said.

Trudeau responded by saying: "When one of our top diplomats and security officials says something to the Canadians, it's because they know it to be true". "Any suggestion to the contrary is baseless and unacceptable", External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar told the media in New Delhi. After the photo of Atwal and Trudeau's wife was sent to the press, it was discovered that Atwal had received a second invitation for another dinner reception being held by the Canadian High Commission in honour of Justin Trudeau.

Glavin, in his piece, opined that "this whole thing has been an bad, trudging parade of error, idiocy, and disgrace".
