Canadian Sikhs are grateful to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for speaking out about their fears and standing up to India regarding the killing of a Sikh separatist leader. The Indian government denies involvement in the killing, but Canadian Sikhs remain unconvinced. Trudeau’s actions have led to a backlash from India, including the expulsion of diplomats and a travel warning for Canadians. The tensions with India have overshadowed Trudeau’s attempts to address cost-of-living concerns and have affected his popularity in opinion polls. Canada is home to a large Sikh population, and Sikhs have significant political representation in the country.
