PM on Rescinding of Invitation to Convicted Sikh Extremist

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau makes a statement to reporters in New Delhi, India, about the rescinding of a reception invitation to Jaspal Atwal. The Canadian Sikh extremist was convicted following the attempted murder of an Indian cabinet minister on Vancouver Island in 1986. Liberal MP Randeep Sarai has taken full responsibility and apologized for adding Atwal to the guest list. (February 22, 2018) (no interpretation)
