No J&K in India map at reception hosted for Canadian PM

On Wednesday the Indian government made it clear that they were very upset about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's defense of his official who said that their recent visit to India was sabotaged by the Indian government. Asked if he'd been working with rogue factions in India to undermine Trudeau's trip, Sarai said tersely: "No".

Canada's Liberal Member of Parliament (MPs) on Thursday blocked a Conservative motion to get Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's national security adviser Daniel Jeana to testify before a committee about his theory that factions in Indian government were behind the furore over Pro-Khalistani terrorist Jaspal Atwal. "The country that is principally affected by that is Australia, which sells hundreds of thousands of metric tonnes of chickpeas to India per year".

To understand the issue, it's important to understand that there are several types of chickpeas.

He said the big concern with the tariff hike is whether it's followed by further hikes on products Canada does export a lot of to India, such as yellow peas and red lentils.

No contact with Mueller's team over Jared Kushner
Hours after the blockade was imposed, President Trump sent out several tweets in support of the action taken by Saudi Arabia , the UAE , Egypt and Bahrain .

India's new tariff, which jumped to 60 per cent from 40 per cent, specifically targets desi chickpeas - not kabuli chickpeas. Goodwin said her understanding is the earlier tariff hikes still apply to kabuli chickpeas, but not the most recent one.

The increases are part of the Indian government's push to boost domestic production of the crops, and protect farmers from cheaper global production, said Pulse Canada CEO Gordon Bacon.

The Trudeau family's Indian foray - and there's great temptation here to call it a winter vacation, given the absence of measurable work-related accomplishment between awkwardly costumed photo-ops - began badly, proceeded poorly and ended on a note so sour, thanks to the presence of a convicted would-be assassin at an official event, that it risks doing long-term damage to Indo-Canadian relations. What is he going to do to fix this mess?

Picking up New Delhi's scent, the Opposition are asking Trudeau to respond to India's rebuttal.

FedEx claim ending NRA member discounts would be 'discrimination'
In a statement , the NRA accused the companies that dropped partnerships of "a shameful display of political and civic cowardice". Metlife Inc (NYSE: MET ) - There are no longer discounts for home and auto insurance for NRA members from this company.

Trudeau has been embroiled in controversy since news broke that Jaspal Atwal - a B.C. Sikh convicted of trying to kill an Indian cabinet minister in 1986 - was invited to and attended a reception in Mumbai, where he was photographed with Trudeau's wife. "Any suggestion to the contrary is baseless and unacceptable". Liberals would only win 33 percent of the popular vote, and the Conservatives would win 38 percent of the same vote, winning the election. But a leading Sikh politician in India, whose party is allied with Modi's party, has echoed the assertion that the elements in the Indian government worked to undermine Trudeau's trip. "I don't have any other relationship with him", the MP added.

Trudeau wasn't in Ottawa on Friday, but at an event in Barrie, Ont., he insisted he was fighting for Canadian farmers in his discussions with India and said both sides had agreed to work on better predictability around setting tariffs.

The thorniest issue when it comes to pulses is on fumigating for pests, Clancey said.

"Our sales to India have gone down precipitously (since the fall)", said Clancey.
