Trudeau's India trip to blame for spike in chickpea tariffs: Opposition

Trudeau's India trip to blame for spike in chickpea tariffs: Opposition

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

Conservative MP Candice Bergen led off question period today by citing India's higher tariffs - now 60 per cent, up from 40 - as proof that Trudeau's troubled trip overseas and the ensuing controversy have resulted a breakdown in relations.

The long list of embarrassments for team Justin Trudeau only became longer.

Goodale refused to specifically discuss Jean, who was outed as the source of the briefing by the Conservatives, but repeatedly said he trusts the advice of non-partisan, professional public servants, whom he said are "motivated by one thing only and that is serving the public interest of Canada".

Randeep Sarai also stated that he has no intention of stepping down from his job.

On last night's show, I reported on the Indian government rebuking Trudeau's excuse for Jaspal Atwal, a convicted Sikh terrorist, being invited to a gala hosted by the Canadian government during the Prime Minister's gaffe-filled visit.

"Last week I had excellent conversations with Prime Minister Modi about science-based approaches to fumigation issues that were related to our pulses here, where we agreed to settle the science and bring forth science-based solutions within the next year, and bring about better predictability on what tariff barriers could be".

Not surprisingly, the latter assertion drew the ire of the Indian government, whose external-affairs ministry called the conspiracy theory "baseless and unacceptable".

"Let me categorically state that the government of India, including the security agencies, had nothing to do with the presence of Jaspal Atwal at the event hosted by the Canadian High Commissioner in Mumbai or the invitation issued to him for the Canadian High Commissioner's reception in New Delhi", Kumar said. But contradictory explanations of who invited whom to what, and why, pushed the Atwal-invitation intrigue beyond the confines of question period and into the broader realm of global diplomacy.

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".

Third, Trudeau trotted out a bureaucrat who blamed "rogue elements" within the Indian government who wanted to make Trudeau look bad.

Atwal was a Sikh separatist active in the banned International Sikh Youth Federation when he was convicted for attempting to murder Punjab minister Malkiat Singh Sidhu in Vancouver in 1986. It could include more detail about any relationships between Atwal and elected officials, as the man had previously been photographed with Sarai and other federal Liberal officials, including Surrey-Newton MP Sukh Dhaliwal, as well as been invited to a 2012 BC Liberal budget speech in the legislature.
