During this, while addressing thousands of people present, Trudeau said that they have gathered today to remember that Canada's greatest strength is its diversity. We are united despite our differences. But when we look at these differences, we must remember that Sikh values ​​are Canadian values.


"One of Canada's greatest strengths is its diversity. We are strong not in spite of our differences, but because of our differences; but even as we look at these differences, we have to remember, and get reminded on days such as this, and every day, that Sikh values are Canadian values," Trudeau said. Trudeau was also gifted a “kirpan”, a sikh ceremonial sword, by the organisers. It was during this that slogans of “Khalistan Zindabad” were heard.


Opposition leader, Pierre Poilievre said in his speech, “We need a direct flight to Amritsar, and a national blue seal, so that the professionals that come here from Punjab or anywhere else can take a test, prove they are qualified and work as nurses, doctors and other highly paid professionals.”



NDP leader Jagmeet Singh also delivered his speech in Punjabi. He said that, “it is important to recognise the atrocities committed against a community in order for their development and to move past them. So, it is requested that we do deeds for the betterment of everyone. We should acknowledge the human rights violations against the Sikh community.”
