Ottawa, ON – The Leader of Canada’s Conservatives, the Honourable Andrew Scheer, today issued a statement in response to Jaspal Atwal’s explanation about how he ended up in India with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. “The government of India, Randeep Sarai, and Jaspal Atwal, have all refuted Justin Trudeau’s theory that Mr. Atwal was planted at the Prime Minister’s events in India, in an effort by the Indian government to humiliate Justin Trudeau. “By continuing to support a conspiracy theory that is unsupported by any proof and has been met only with denials by those alleged to be involved, Justin Trudeau is making unsubstantiated allegations to distract attention from his disastrous India trip. “Justin Trudeau is failing to be honest with Canadians about the Atwal affair. Canadians deserve answers.” -30-
