Canada’s Prime Minister recently returned from an eight-day trip to India, ostensibly to improve trade relations.
Many criticised the trip as being more of a taxpayer funded family vacation with very little business conducted. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was also criticised for dressing up in expensive Bollywood-style clothing. However, the big political scandal was the presence of a Sikh man a former member of a banned Sikh terrorist group, who was also convicted of the attempted assassination of an Indian minister during a tour of British Columbia in 1986.
Levon presents an audio clip of a raucous questioning of the prime minister in the House of Commons about how such a man was invited to official dinners, and various explanations by the Liberal Party, including a suggestion by a high-ranking government official that the invitation was engineered by rogue factions within the Indian government to embarrass Trudeau and present him as soft on terrorism.

Marie-Claude has a report about the making of cornbread by the Kahnawake Mohawks and the importance of hominy in their culture, a food produced from dried maize kernels that have been treated in a traditional Mohawk process. Chief Chistine Zachary-Deom explains.
