Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Departs India After Aircraft Technical Issue Resolved

After a Delay Due to an Aircraft Snag, Trudeau’s Departure from India Is Now Assured

Earlier today, Mohammad Hussain, Press Secretary for the Canadian Prime Minister, confirmed that the plane’s technical issue had been resolved, allowing it to resume its flight.

Canada’s Department of National Defence stated that the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) CC-150 Polaris aircraft, bearing tail number ’01’, experienced a maintenance problem requiring a component replacement. They emphasized the importance of pre-flight safety checks and mentioned dispatching a replacement aircraft to retrieve Mr. Trudeau from India.

Reports suggest that the replacement aircraft may have been diverted to the UK, but the reasons for this diversion remain unclear.

This incident is not the first time Mr. Trudeau has faced travel disruptions related to aircraft issues, as a similar incident occurred during his 2019 campaign.

Tensions have risen between Canada and India, with Canada suspending trade treaty negotiations, largely driven by political protests from its Sikh population. Recent violence, including the murder of Sikh separatist advocate Hardeep Singh Nijjar, has further strained relations, with India denying any involvement in his killing.

During their meeting at the G20 summit, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed concerns about “anti-India activities of extremist elements in Canada,” which he believed promoted secessionism and violence. In response, Mr. Trudeau highlighted the importance of upholding democratic principles, the rule of law, and national sovereignty. Additionally, foreign interference in Canada’s affairs was discussed, with Canada investigating interference from India, China, and Russia.
