Information about Surrey gunman at Trudeau dinner passed to Canadian officials earlier this month

Canada’s spy agency was provided information by a concerned citizen last week about the optics of convicted gunman Jaspal Atwal attending events with the prime minister in India, Postmedia has learned.

The tipster, who asked not to be identified for fear of retaliation, confirmed speaking to an agent from the Canadian Security Intelligence Service on Feb. 17, hoping to alert the Canadian government to Atwal’s criminal history.

The person said to the CSIS agent that “this is an embarrassment for the prime minister and (CSIS) should send a note to the prime minister’s office. And they sent a note.”

Either CSIS failed to channel this information to Justin’s handlers, or if forwarded then one of Junior’s puppeteers sent it down the memory hole or… Justin OK’d it despite the warnings.
