The House is not sitting this week as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau remains overseas on his week-long official state visit to India. But, the Prime Minister’s Office is already doing damage control over a couple of invitations sent to a man for a pair of receptions in Delhi, India. The invitations have now been rescinded to a man who was convicted of trying to assassinate a visiting Indian cabinet minister on Vancouver Island in 1986. But, the embarrassing error wasn’t caught until after Jaspal Atwal had already attended a reception Tuesday in Mumbai and posed  with Trudeau’s wife Sophie. The Prime Minister says he was able to make it very clear to the Chief Minister of Punjab in a meeting today that Canada supports a united India. Amarinder Singh has publicly accused several of Trudeau’s cabinet ministers of supporting Sikh separatist extremists. Adding to the PM’s troubles, Vancouver-based celebrity chef Vikram Vij, a vocal Liberal supporter, was flown to India on the government’s dime to cook for a group of top diplomats. We speak with Ajay Tandon, VP Presdident of the Indo Canadian Chamber of Commerce.

Caroline Mulroney who is vying to lead Ontario’s opposition is calling on Patrick Brown to drop out of the Progressive Conservative leadership race tweeting: I hope the other candidates will join me in calling for him to step aside, instead of fighting for his second ballot support at the expense of our party and winning the next election.  We speak with Political Strategist Gerry Nicholls about the very latest in the ongoing Ontario PC Party Drama.
