PM Justin Trudeau walks in Vancouver Vaisakhi parade after reference to Sikh extremism deleted

 

 

 

[There was the Prime Minister, complete with a yellow headscarf or junior turban, with some sort of saffron scarf thrown over his shoulder, embracing a grinning fat Sikh in a fetching bright rose turban. There sheer diversity of the moment would be enough to make a citizen of the world swoon.  Well, the Clown Prince was in Vancouver April 13 at the Vaisakhi Sikh parade, playing Mr. Dressup as usual. Referring to the Sikhs, he proclaimed: “Let us also celebrate all the incredible contributions of this community.” Would he have marched in a European pride parade and hailed the even more “incredible contributions” of the European founding/settler people of this country, which build a land to which, by hook or by crook, Sikhs would flock to? I didn’t think so!

As part of the sanitizing of history and deliberate obfuscation to purge the public record of anything critical of the foreigners the replacement policies of our immigration system have brought to this country, the Liberal government in a shameful retreat from reality April 12,  agreed to Sikh demands. For all the yapping about equality, Sikhs, at less than one per cent of Canada’s population occupy 16 per cent of the federal cabinet seats. It’s White who should be demanding equality!

Trudeau’s morning speech came just hours after the federal government agreed to remove a reference to Sikh extremism from a report on terrorism. The Vancouver Sun (April 13) explains: ” The language was changed late Friday to remove any mention of religion, instead discussing the threat posed by ‘extremists who support violent means to establish an independent state within India.’ The 2018 Public Report on the Terrorism Threat to Canada drew the ire of the Sikh community when it was released in December. For the first time, the report listed Sikh extremism as one of the top five extremist threats in Canada. Although the objections were largely about the inclusion of Sikhs at all, because of the report’s lack of evidence to back it up, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said he would at least ask for a review of the language the report used.”

But the independent homeland backed by the violent extremists — remember the bombing of Air India — is to be a Sikh homeland in the Punjab, which is mostly in India, but part in Pakistan. It is not to be a Hindu or Jain or Buddhist or multicult homeland!

 

Goodale is a master at obscuring reality. If you can’t name the problem, how can you deal with it? Back in late 2016, as the invasion of illegals began trickling across the Manitoba and then the Quebec border, he chose to rename them as “irregular migrants” as if they’d somehow been strolling around Central Park, with their bulging suitcases, of course, and then, somehow taken a wrong turn and ended up a couple of hundred miles north at the Quebec border. By not calling these enabled invaders illegals, he can slip into bureaucratic mode and seek to regularize them through some paper shuffling.]

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau touted the strength and contributions of Canada’s Sikh community as he celebrated the religion’s holy day of Vaisakhi in Vancouver.

“As we celebrate Vaisakhi, let us also celebrate all the incredible contributions of this community,” he said in a speech after he walked in a parade Saturday organized by the Khalsa Diwan Society in Surrey. The society formed in 1902 and built the first Sikh Gurdwara in Canada several years later.

Trudeau joined other politicians and community members in walking amongst floats and performers. On the sidelines, people handed out free food, including snacks and full meals to passersby.

Sikhs have helped to build Canada for more than 120 years, Trudeau said, adding there are now Sikh entrepreneurs, politicians, artists and true leaders in every field.

He said the values celebrated during the holy day, like equality and social justice, are values that make Canada stronger.

Before the parade, Trudeau visited one of the largest Sikh temples in the country, Vancouver’s Ross Street Gurdwara, where he delivered a speech with similar sentiments. Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan also attended the festivities.

Attendees at the morning ceremony sat on the floor, many of them in colourful turbans, as speeches by several political leaders were broadcast on two massive screens.

The language was changed late Friday to remove any mention of religion, instead discussing the threat posed by “extremists who support violent means to establish an independent state within India.”

The 2018 Public Report on the Terrorism Threat to Canada drew the ire of the Sikh community when it was released in December.

Although the objections were largely about the inclusion of Sikhs at all, because of the report’s lack of evidence to back it up, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said he would at least ask for a review of the language the report used.

He said entire religions should never be equated with terrorism.

There are roughly half a million Canadians who identify as Sikh, most of them in the Greater Toronto Area and suburban Vancouver.
