Canada’s Trudeau pushes for deeper India relationship during visit

Trudeau’s tour has been overshadowed by suggestions of a lukewarm reception by the government and a series of photo opportunities featuring the Trudeau family in coordinated Indian attire that have raised eyebrows in both countries.

The latest flashpoint, a swiftly cancelled invitation by the Canadian delegation to Jaspal Atwal, convicted in 1986 of the attempted murder of an Indian politician visiting Canada, came just days after Trudeau had assured his hosts he would not support anyone trying to revive a separatist movement in India.

The trip, partly aimed at shoring up support for Trudeau’s Liberals among the politically important ethnic vote in key regions, has also been criticised for being light on official government business.
