Working with India to connect Canada and flights, air routes: PM Trudeau

Toronto. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has assured the Sikh community that a “new agreement” has been negotiated with India to add more flights and air routes between the two countries. Trudeau’s comments came while he was addressing the Khalsa Day Parade here on Sunday afternoon. He said many Canadians have loved ones living in India whom they want to visit often.

“That’s why our government has negotiated a new agreement with India to add more flights and air routes between the two countries, and we look forward to more flights to other locations, including Amritsar,” Trudeau said at the Khalsa Day event. We will continue to work with our counterparts to start flights. Slogans were also raised in support of Khalistan in the program. In November 2022, India and Canada agreed to a deal that allows specified airline companies to operate an unlimited number of flights between the two countries.

Prior to this agreement, the number of flights per week by specified airlines between Canada and India was a maximum of 35. It is not yet known whether the two countries have discussed further expanding the agreement signed in 2022. Trudeau had angered New Delhi last year by accusing India of being involved in the killing of a Sikh separatist. In his address during the event, he also pledged to always protect the rights and freedoms of Sikhs in Canada and protect the community against hatred and discrimination.

Vaisakhi is also known as Khalsa Day. It is a symbol of the Sikh New Year. Trudeau began his speech by saying “Waheguru ji’s Khalsa is Waheguru ji’s victory.” “We will always be here to protect your rights and your freedoms, along with the approximately 800,000 Sikh Canadians in this country, and we will always protect your community from hatred and discrimination,” he said.
