20/02/2018 – Punjab, India – Ms. Ruby Sahota, Member of Parliament for Brampton North is half way through her visit to India. The visit, alongside Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, five Cabinet Ministers, the Brampton Members of Parliament and other MPs began on February 17th 2018 and is expected to conclude on February 24th 2018.
Canada and India enjoy a special relationship that is based on a common language, similar institutions and forms of government, and a commitment to democracy. India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, and offers tremendous opportunities to grow Canada’s middle class and bolster our shared prosperity.
MP Sahota’s visit – which includes stops in New Delhi, Jandali, Patiala, Amritsar, Chandigarh, Ludhiana, and Hoshiarpur – will provide an opportunity for her to connect with Indian leaders in government and business, promote the empowerment of women and girls, and strengthen Canada and India’s close economic ties.
During her visit, MP Sahota was greeted by a reception in her paternal village of Jandali. Well-wishers came in the thousands and included prominent community leaders and activists of various constitutional, social and religious organizations. The rest of MP Sahota’s visit included speaking with law students at Patiala’s Punjabi University, visiting a family-run small business, inaugurating a literature festival, and visiting the Harmandir Sahib (commonly known as the Golden Temple) with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and 13 other Canadian MPs.
“Canada and India share a special bond, and are linked by tremendous people-to-people connections. The more than one million Canadians of Indian origin make the relationship between our two countries a truly special one. I look forward to building and fostering relationships to further strengthen the Canada-India friendship.”
