Canadians believe India is snubbing their premier

  • Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau with his son Hadrien 3 feed an elephant during a tour of the elephant sanctuary in Mathura on Sunday

Trudeau addressed a business conference in Mumbai on Tuesday morning, attended by leaders from the Tata group, IT giants Infosys Ltd and pharmaceutical major Jubilant Life Sciences Ltd.

The Times of India was equally perplexed with Trudeau's visit.

On Monday, speaking with the students at IIM Ahmedabad, the Canadian Prime Minister, who is on a week-long visit to India, said that women were facing discrimination, sexism, and judgment every day in their lives.

Experts have been pushing the Liberals to create dedicated paternity leave in the budget and increase the value of benefits paid out for parents who opt for an 18-month parental leave that became available late previous year.

SGPC, an apex religious body of the Sikhs, will honour Trudeau by presenting him a Siropa (robe of honour), a replica of the Golden Temple and a sword, an SGPC official said.

"Wheels up for India and a busy visit, focused on creating good jobs and strengthening the deep connection between the people of our two countries", Trudeau tweeted as the family boarded the plane leaving Ottawa on Friday, February 16th. Singh had refused to meet Canada's Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan a year ago and called him a Khalistan sympathizer, and stating that his government would not meet anyone who supports the Khalistan cause.

Experts pointed out that royals only wear black at funerals, so supporting the cause would be a breach of protocol. Kaluuya, who is also Oscar-nominated, joked that success meant taking Ubers rather than the subway.

February 17: Canadian PM Trudeau landed at the Delhi airport and was accompanied by his wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau and children Hadrien, Ella-Grace Margaret and Xavier James Trudeau.

Referring to Modi accompanying Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe during the latter's visit to Gujarat in September, 2017, the sources said the visit was "very high" in content which included laying the foundation for India's first high-speed bullet train project besides other components.

The government has clarified that PM Modi not meeting PM Trudeau at the airport on his arrival was not a snub, and that it was the insistence of Canada that Trudeau's official engagements begin at the end of the week-long trip to India.

A story claiming that Fidel Castro was the father of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is not true. Trudeau was received at the airport by junior agriculture minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat when Prime Minister Narendra Modi broke protocol to personally receive Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu. A report by CBC News said that Trudeau's India visit looked more like a "family vacation" than an exercise for diplomatic engagement. He has already been to Agra for a visit to Taj with his family.

Amarinder Singh is all set to take Punjab's close business as well as people-to-people relations with Canada to the next level, with a one-to-one meeting with Trudeau in Amritsar on Wednesday, said an official spokesperson here.

Amarinder Singh had gone public to label Sajjan and other ministers of Indian origin in the Trudeau government as "Khalistani sympathizers".
