Liberals block motion seeking Trudeau's security adviser testify Atwal theory

Liberals block motion seeking Trudeau's security adviser testify Atwal theory

Trudeau, speaking in Barrie, Ont., says the tariff increase was a domestic decision that doesn't specifically target Canada, and that he had productive discussions with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on increasing the predictability of future tariffs.

The Opposition party planned moving a motion in parliament on Thursday to condemn Khalistani separatists and pledge support to India's unity.

Sarai resigned as chair of his party's Pacific caucus late Tuesday. "I just forwarded the names that I received.I should have searched the names up and done my due diligence better". "All we did is forwarded anyone who wanted to attend, had expressed interest in the office, we forwarded those names to, forwarded those names forward", he said.

"During Prime Minister Trudeau's visit to India, Atwal was invited to dine with him at a formal event hosted by Canadian High Commissioner to India Nadir Patel".

First, we were told Atwal hadn't been invited.

The allegations that India or its security agencies had anything to do with the presence of Jaspal Atwal at the Mumbai event or the dinner invitation is "baseless and unacceptable", external affairs ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said on Wednesday.

The controversy surrounding Atwal erupted last week after he was photographed with Trudeau's wife Sophie Gregoire at the event in Mumbai.

Atwal told The Canadian Press in an interview February 24 that he received an invitation directly from the Canadian high commissioner's office for the event in New Delhi the week before. The invitation was later withdrawn.

Meanwhile, Canadian officials are struggling to contain the escalating diplomatic incident after a national security official briefed reporters travelling with the Canadian delegation on Atwal's invitation during a media backgrounder organized by the PMO while in India.

That's certainly the kind of week it has been for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whose return from what can only be described as a calamitous journey to India has been followed by days wasted defending the trip's negligible diplomatic outcomes, while at the same time scrambling to evade a weird scandal that threatens to turn the entire South Asian exercise from a disaster into a full-fledged disgrace.

Conservatives identified the official as Trudeau's national security adviser, Daniel Jean, and they pressed Trudeau to say whether he agreed with Jean's "conspiracy theory", "The Star" newspaper said in a report. A former member of the banned International Sikh Youth Federation, Surrey-based Atwal spent years in jail in connection with the 1986 assassination attempt on then Punjab Minister Malkit Singh Sidhu during his visit to Canada.

Trudeau's remark came in response to the Canadian opposition cornering the prime minister on the issue.
