Who could forget Trudeau's disastrous India trip that became a national embarrassment for every right-minded Canadian. When he wasn't doing namaste hands all over the place, he was prancing around in costumes that Bollywood stars themselves said were more Bollywood than Bollywood.
There was also the scandal of the Liberal-linked celebrity chef, Vikram Vij, that Trudeau brought along for the trip to cook Indian food. Vij now sits on the panel that selects Canada's so-called independent Liberal senators.
Then there was the catastrophe of the Sikh separatist terrorist the Liberals invited to a reception held at the resident of Canada’s High Commissioner to India. To the horror and chagrin of our Indian hosts, Khalistani terrorist Jaspal Atwal who was convicted in 1986 of the attempted assassination of an Indian State cabinet minister visiting Vancouver Island, turned up in Mumbai after receiving a formal invitation.
The whole thing was a gong show - a humiliation for those who will had any shame left after nearly four years of Justin Trudeau. The comical affair was so badly mismanaged and frankly, stupid, that it required a deeper look.
The package of documents I received contains 448 pages that demonstrate just how superficial the Liberals’ foreign affairs strategy has been for the last three years.
Briefing notes insisted that photo-ops, like those of the Trudeau family in front of the Taj Mahal, the partition museum and a temple, would be in the national interest of Canadians.
The documents I’ll show you today, reveal how lectures about refugees and gay rights took precedence over the trade wars and tariffs that India had just slapped on Canadian pulse farmers when Trudeau was to meet with Indian Prime Minister Modi.
In India, briefing notes show the Liberals were taking policy direction from Amnesty International while overnight Canadian farmers lost millions and a market for their crops.
But didn’t the Trudeaus look great?
