India To Freeland: No Improved Relations Until Khalistani Extremism Is Addressed

While India could be a valuable ally and counterweight to Communist China, our relations with the world’s most populous democracy are quite bad under the Trudeau government.

India is a nation that shares many of Canada’s values, and could serve as a valuable counter to Communist China just as we have a serious ongoing conflict with them.

But instead, our relations with India are in the tank, and there’s no prospect of that improving.

According to the Hindustan Times, “India has informed Canada that there is little hope for improving frosty bilateral relations if Ottawa doesn’t address New Delhi’s concerns about the burgeoning activities of Khalistani operatives and organisations, people familiar with developments said. The message was conveyed by external affairs minister S Jaishankar when he held a bilateral meeting with his Canadian counterpart, Chrystia Freeland, on the margins of the G20 Summit in Japan on June 28, the people said.”

Unfortunately, not only have the Trudeau Liberals shown zero willingness to confront Khalistani extremism, but they actively worked to suppress mention of it in government reports. So, in an effort to gain a few votes, the Liberals are playing games with our national security, and putting our relationship with India at risk at a time when we should be gathering allies in our ongoing confrontation with China.

The report also notes how Andrew Scheer was given a high level of respect when visiting India, a not-so subtle message about how India views Canada’s current governing Liberals:

“There have been virtually no high-level visits since then and Canada’s leader of opposition Andrew Scheer was given a red carpet welcome when he made a trip to India last October. Scheer also held a one-on-one with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, something of a rarity for opposition leaders.”

As a result, it seems clear that the only chance at improving relations between Canada and India is for the Liberals to be thrown out of power.

What is it going to take for Canadian’s to finally open their eyes and see the destruction caused by this extremely corrupt, incompetent and anti-Canadian government and its arrogant, divisive “leader”?

Like PM Harper who is still being demonized and lied about by Lieberals, It looks like Mr. Scheer, will be a respected more truthful and transparent Canadian PM around the world and especially in Canada. If a lot of the mainstream media was not bought out by the Lieberals for their slant and misinformation and this was made mainstream the Lieberals would be a big “0” by this Oct. election, at least by intelligent Canadians, it is just the brainwashed and can’t thinkers, who would vote for radical left or right. Let us vote for a centrist truthful government that… Read more »

I am trying to think of almost any democratic, hell, even communist or dictatorial country or Government that Trudeau hasn’t pissed off. He was and still is Just Not Ready.

The world would be much better off if he went back to being an assistant junior drama teacher applicant.

One and out, just like Horgan.

India’s rejection of improved relations with the Liberal government and warm welcome for Andrew Scheer is a very positive thing!
To those who would vote for Bernier for PM, I would suggest that he is an unknown to the world and most Canadians. He would be a liability to relations with India.
It is very unfortunate that Canadians are not party to the opinions of foreign leaders who have dealt with Trudeau and what they feel about the “man-child”, and why!

Even if it were true that Canada-India relations would fare worse under Bernier than Scheer (although I see zero reason to believe that would be the case), this really isn’t a big issue for me and I’m sure all other PPC supporters would agree. If anything, Bernier is less likely than Scheer to pander to Sikhs (or special interest groups in general), so that might please India.

In Trudeau’s and Freeland’s quest for re election , they just see Canada’s soverignty and security as being something to be sacrificed for their need for power and re election. After all, Trudeau has rewarded terrorism by giving it $10 million dollars, an a apology, claiming that terrorists can be a force for change, while undermining our relationship with India. Yet Trudeau and Freeland are both blind to the consequences of their actions and thus are alienating our trading partners, destroying our international relationships and isolating Canada from what is left of our allies. If it isn’t obvious to everyone… Read more »
