Convicted felon’s invite to dinner with Trudeau highlights ‘serious gaps’: expert

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Questions around security are being raised after a convicted felon was invited to a dinner with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in India.

As a former member of the International Sikh Youth Federation (a banned terrorist group in Canada and India), Jaspal Atwal was convicted of the attempted murder of an Indian cabinet minister in 1986.

He managed to get on the guest list thanks to Surrey Centre MP Randeep Sarai, who’s since claimed responsibility for his actions and admitted he should have used better judgement.
