"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

On a Sunday newscast , we learned Prime Minister Trudeau was informed of accusations of extremism against four Sikh members of his cabinet .

The Prime Mknister is on a trade and culture visit to India. He is accompanied by six cabinet ministers, four of them Sikh Indian or Indian Sikhs . Another dozen Indian MPs will join him on the trip. 

There are 1.3 million Indians resident in Canada  . We assume the number includes children.

The thought occurs; how many Scots from Scotland are Canadian residents. How many 
are members of Trudeau's cabinet? 

Well why can't I ask that question? It seems relevant to me. 

A tour of three sites was scheduled in the tour, guided by the same government official who accuses Canadian cabinet ministers of extremism and favouring separation in India.

Now it is stated Trudeau will not meet with that official. 

Looks like he doesn't wanna talk abaht it.  

Compare that to his immediate expulsion from caucus of Liberal MPs accused by women MPs of another party of inappropriate ,sexually inclined ,comments. The Prime Minister claims  zero tolerance for some obnoxious conduct but not all. 

Sikh extremists were the personal bodyguard of Indira Gandhi .They assassinated the Indian Prime Minister. I think she was the third Prime Minister of India after Pandit Nehru.that'sgoing back a year 
or fifty. 

Vancouver Sikh extremists put a bomb on a jumbo jet flying to India with hundreds of Indian family members , from infants to elderly. The plane blew up over the Atlantic with no survivors. All they found
were baby shoes and a toy or two. 

Sikhs from Brampton helped Patrick Brown win the Conservative leadership with thousands of phoney memberships and financial contributions. Then sued  because they didn't get an Ottawa nomination. 

I know of a young Canadian mother in an abusive relationship.Husband abandoned the family in
Vancouver.  Sikh landlord evicted them  from their home because  he had leased to a man. 

But the Prime Minister doesn't want to hear allegations against Sikhs, let alone believe them. 

Now then...am I the only one who sees something  skewed in this picture?
