I speak to @maxbergeron @lp_lapresse about the train wreck of #TrudeauInIndia #cdnpoli and why it must be accounted a failure on all fronts.
Why no trade deal between Canada and India? I tell @macleans that's @JustinTrudeau 's fashionable but misguided "progressive" trade agenda is one big reason for that. http://www.macleans.ca/politics/ottawa/canada-and-india-cant-seem-to-make-a-trade-deal-heres-why/ … #TrudeauInIndia #cdnpoli

I speak to the Canadian Press (a wire service, story here published in the National Post) on the history of Sikh extremism in Canada, which is still a matter of concern, I argue.
Where friend Kevin Carmichael, writing in the National Post, avers that I, an "ideological foe" of Trudeau, have been allowed to frame the narrative around Trudeau's trip by the Canadian press. Do read his interesting counterpoint here.
