Πήγε ο Τριντό στην Ινδία και η γυναίκα του είχε στην λίστα των συναντήσεων της έναν καταδικασμένο τρομοκράτη των αυτονομιστών Sikh, οι οποίοι διεκδικούν ένα κομμάτι της Ινδίας. Ο Τριντό είπε ότι στηρίζει την εδαφική ακεραιότητα της Ινδίας, αλλά η στενή του σχέση με τους Sikh δεν βοηθάει.
Έκλεισαν οι Καναδοί το μάτι στους Κινέζους. Σου λέει να κάνουμε και καμιά δουλειά με τους Ινδούς, αλλά η Κίνα είναι η φίλη μας. Οι Καναδοί βλέπουν με πολύ άσχημο μάτι την βελτίωση των σχέσεων ΗΠΑ-Ρωσίας λόγω Τραμπ, γιατί με τους Ρώσους οι Καναδοί έχουν πολύ μεγάλους ανοιχτούς λογαριασμούς στον Αρκτικό Ωκεανό λόγω διαφορών για τις ΑΟΖ τους.
Και θέλουν τώρα οι Καναδοί να κατασκευάσουν αγωγό πετρελαίου που θα βγάζει το πετρέλαιο της Alberta στον Ειρηνικό Ωκεανό, ώστε να γίνουν μεγάλοι προμηθευτές της Κίνας, και να έχουν την Κίνα εναντίον της Ρωσίας, και μία εναλλακτική πηγή εσόδων σε περίπτωση που πληγούν λόγω των αλλαγών που θέλει να κάνει ο Τραμπ στην NAFTA για να μειωθεί το εμπορικό έλλειμμα των ΗΠΑ με το Μεξικό και τον Καναδά.

trip under renewed scrutiny over links to Sikh terrorist”, Φεβρουάριος 2018 India
Justin Trudeau’s visit to
suffered another setback when it was revealed a convicted Sikh terrorist was on the invitation list for two engagements with the Canadian prime minister. India
Jaspal Atwal a pro-Khalistan separatist campaigning for an independent Sikh homeland in India, was pictured with the PM’s wife, Sophie, at an event in Mumbai on Tuesday and was on the guest list for a dinner in Delhi on Thursday.
The Canadian High Commissioner to
, Nadir Patel, subsequently rescinded the dinner invite to Atwal, but the diplomatic gaffe is the latest unwanted headline in a trip that has seen the Indian government accused of snubbing the Canadian leader. India
Despite Canadian diplomats responding by nixing the invitation, the timing of the revelation is problematic for Mr Trudeau, who is due to meet Narendra Modi, the Indian prime minister, on Friday.
Atwal, a Canadian Sikh based in
Canada, was convicted of trying to assassinate Punjab minister Malkiat Singh Sondhi while he was on a visit to , in 1986. Mr Sondhi was shot twice and survived, but was later killed in Vancouver by pro-Khalistan activists. India
Mr Trudeau has previously stated that
Canada supports only a “unified ” but his close links with the country’s robust Sikh community, among which many pro-Khalistan groups operate, has overshadowed his trip. Atwal was pictured in Mumbai not just with Mrs Trudeau but also the Canadian minister Amarjeet Sohi, part of the official delegation. India
Mr Trudeau visited Punjab, the home state of Sikhs, and was pictured at the
where he met with the chief minister, Amarinder Singh - but before his arrival it was uncertain whether the minister would meet him. Mr Singh said he had raised the "Khalistan issue", and had been assured that Golden Temple Canada does not support any separatist movement in . India
Indian media questioned how Atwal got an Indian Visa from the Ministry of External Affairs and why he was cleared to attend official events during the visit.
Mr Modi is known for his exuberant welcomes for some foreign leaders but has yet to meet the Canadian PM, leading to commentators suggesting Mr Trudeau had been given the cold shoulder.

has been contacted for comment. Delhi
Canada pushes for oil sales to as it seeks climate leadership”, Ιούνιος 2017 China
It did not take long after Donald Trump said he would pull the
United States out of the Paris climate agreement that Canada and leaped into the breach, promising to lead the way to a different future. China
The fight against rising temperatures is first among "shared human imperatives," Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said. Emissions reductions are an "international responsibility," Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said.
But when Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr arrived in
this week, he had a very familiar item on his agenda: promoting a pipeline and the hope that Canadian crude will one day sail across the Pacific in large volumes. Beijing
"We have to expand our export markets in all of our natural resources," he told an audience of energy executives and Chinese investors. "And that is why
is so important to us. That's why we approved a pipeline to take China Alberta crude to the West Coast, and then on to Asia."
It was a theme Mr. Carr revisited in meetings with his Chinese counterparts as he stressed Ottawa's desire to move oil west over the objections of the NDP-Green Party coalition seeking power in British Columbia.
"The government of
Canada is committed to the expansion project," Mr. Carr said in an interview. "We believe it's in the national interest for all of the reasons that we have expressed – job creation, expansion of export markets." Trans Mountain
At meetings for a Clean Energy Ministerial forum, Mr. Carr also advocated for the greater use of carbon capture and storage and for the potential of
to export clean technology. Canada
But behind the rhetoric, the continued promotion of Canadian oil and gas in
underscored the degree to which neither country shows any sign of giving up fossil fuels any time soon. China
"At the moment,
represents only a fraction of our oil exports and none of our natural gas. We're looking to change that," Mr. Carr said. China
It's a controversial position, particularly among environmental voices who say
Canada is pouring political and financial capital into an endeavour that will deliver a product China may not want in years to come, particularly as sets course for a less carbon-heavy future. Beijing
But the International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts
China's oil demand will continue to rise – so much so that, by the early 2030s, it will surpass the as the world's largest consumer. And United States China's dependence on imported crude will grow – rising from roughly 65 per cent today to 80 per cent in a decade, estimates Bo Qiang Lin, dean of the China Institute for Studies in Energy Policy at . That means " Xiamen University will try to diversify its oil demand," he said. China
Meanwhile, dwindling supplies from places such as
Venezuela will add to China's appetite for heavy oil, the kind extracted from 's oil sands. "They have the demand for this crude, they can process it," said Sushant Gupta, the director of Asia Pacific refining at energy consultancy Wood Mackenzie. Canada
It all has the makings of a plush welcome mat for Canadian crude. Mr. Gupta expects the expansion of the
Trans Mountain pipeline from Alberta to British Columbia will direct 500,000 barrels a day of Canadian crude to Asia, primarily , some time after 2020. For the oil patch, new profits will follow, he said. "Those producers will get higher netbacks going to China ." China
's pipeline plans are being drawn on a changing landscape. Canada
Barring war or other shocks, the future "supply of oil will exceed demand, and so the Chinese don't need to buy our oil," said Mark Jaccard, a Simon Fraser University scholar who has served on the China Council for International Co-operation on Environment and Development.
The IEA has said it will review demand forecasts in light of major new efforts by both
China and to move away from gasoline-powered transportation. India this week committed to selling only electric cars by 2030. India , already the world leader in manufacturing and installing wind and solar power, said in April that it expects domestic sales of alternative-energy vehicles to hit roughly seven million by 2025. China
The IEA has forecast that global oil demand will rise until 2040, but the agency is "categorically wrong," said Tim Buckley, director of energy finance studies at the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis.
"We're in a creative destructive technology transition, and there's going to be a lot of losers in that environment," Mr. Buckley said, adding that
has two powerful reasons to move away from gasoline: a desire to reduce foreign-energy dependency and an ambition to become the global leader in the next generation of transportation. China
"We are going to stop powering cars with gas and shift to electricity and other non-carbon sources," said Merran Smith, the executive director of Clean Energy
, a think tank. "Those who lead on clean-energy technologies now will be the winners. If you're not in the vanguard of this energy transition, you risk being left behind." Canada
Still, it takes a lot of Teslas to shut down oil wells. The IEA estimates that 150 million plug-in cars equal 1.3 million barrels of oil a day – just 1.3 per cent of the global demand forecast for this year.
In the meantime, Mr. Carr argued in an interview, "we should use the revenue from conventional sources to finance the transition to renewables. And
understands that. China
"This is a transition," he added. "It's going to take a while."
Mr. Carr was joined in
by a contingent of clean-tech firms and environmental thinkers, which Ms. Smith, who was among the group, called a first. China
"So that is a good sign and first step that the government is seeing the need to sell
's resourcefulness, not just resources," she said. Canada has 11 companies on the most recent Global Cleantech top 100 list, she pointed out. The Canada United States has 52 and Britain has seven, while has just two. China
with Mr. Carr were energy-company executives and Tim McMillan, president of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers. Beijing
The Natural Resources Minister pointed to the
Canada's Oil Sands Innovation Alliance, which shares green technologies between companies extracting bitumen, as evidence that is also moving toward a cleaner future. And Canada Canada's pursuit of crude exports, he said, is balanced by its investment in an ocean-protection plan and 's commitments to cut greenhouse gas emissions. Ottawa
"We're working across governments in
to achieve that common goal," he said. "So I don't see it as a contradiction in direction at all." Canada
