FEDERAL Liberal Party Leader Justin Trudeau met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday.

Trudeau said: “It was a great honour and privilege to meet with Prime Minister Modi in Toronto today.

“Canada and India’s longstanding friendship is something of which we can all be proud. Not only are our nations shaped by democratic and pluralistic values, but we share an important cultural bond, with more than one million Canadians tracing their heritage to India.

“As one of the world’s fastest growing major economies, India is a vital trading partner. We must do more to grow and strengthen our bilateral relationship.

“I wish Prime Minister Modi much success during the rest of his time in Canada, and look forward to continued deepening ties between our two countries.”
