Trudeau family visiting India

The Trudeaus and Shashi Tharoor Justin Trudeau on 7-day visit to India from tomorrow – 4 places where you can meet him
Lindsey Cook | 21 February, 2018, 09:18

As quoted by The New York Times, the Canadian government denied the report this week, saying Trudeau was born just over 9 months after his parents' wedding.

However, if you consider that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, other senior members of his government, and even the chief ministers of states on Trudeau's itinerary - Uttar Pradesh and Punjab - have all opted out of meeting the Canadian prime minister, you would think something rather amiss.

Experts have been pushing the Liberals to create dedicated paternity leave in the budget and increase the value of benefits paid out for parents who opt for an 18-month parental leave that became available late a year ago. "A week is a long time for a PM to spend visiting one country, and a half of a day out of eight is very little official business".

Commentators in the Canadian media highlighted that Shekhawat received Trudeau at the Delhi airport and contrasted this against PM Modi himself receiving several world leaders at the airport.

Mumbai: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday said that a people-to-people connection was important for the Indo-Canadian relations. Singh had refused to meet the Canadian defence minister Harjit Sajjan a year ago on the same grounds.

Trudeau was accompanied by his wife Shophie and three children Xavier, Hadrien and Ella-Grace Margaret as they paid tribute to Mahatma Gandhi at the Gandhi Ashram here.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau definitely is a social media darling, thanks to his charming looks and fashion sense.

"This, they noted, was in marked contrast to the warm welcome and hugs from Prime Minister Modi that marked the arrivals of U.S. president Barack Obama, Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu and Abu Dhabi crown prince Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan". Trudeau said Canada was open to immigration and asserted that the current bilateral trade of $8 billion in goods and $2 billion in services had potential to grow. A report by CBC News said that Trudeau's India visit looked more like a "family vacation" than an exercise for diplomatic engagement.

Trudeau has four Sikh cabinet ministers - Harjit Sajjan, Amarjeet Sohi, Navdeep Bains and Bardish Chagger. "I had come down to see Agra from New Delhi to see the Taj Mahal", Trudeau recalled.

The list of vacations by this Canadian prime minister is unprecedented.

The lukewarm welcome to Trudeau can backfire and hamper the significant 2015 deal, in which Canada agreed to supply 3,000 metric tonnes of Uranium to power India's atomic reactors.
