Another controversy appears to have struck the Justin Trudeau’s India tour.
In response of reports that appeared in certain sections of media, the
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday rejected claims that he raised the issue of separatism in Quebec with Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh
It need be mentioned that it was February 21 that Singh’s media adviser Raveen Thukral had said that Trudeau cited a separatist movement in the Canadian province of Quebec to convey to his host that he had dealt with such threats and was fully aware of the dangers of violence.
This was outrightly rejected by Trudeau during his interaction with the Canadian media in New Delhi on Saturday.
He went on to clarify that he has always been very proud of the lessons that Canada and Quebec have to share on differences of opinion shared in peaceful ways.
The comments attributed by Thukral to Trudeau have sent shock waves through Quebec, a predominantly French-speaking province in eastern Canada which has been asking for independence.
It was also reported back then that the Punjab Chief Minister had handed over a list of suspected Sikh separatists in Canada was handed to Trudeau during the meeting.
