Videos released by Canada-based CPAC TV showed chants of ‘Khalistan Zindabad’ escalating as PM Trudeau and other political leaders addressed the gathering to mark Khalsa Day. The chants persisted even as Opposition leader Pierre Poilievre and other dignitaries took the stage.

The event, which drew thousands of people to downtown Toronto on Sunday, is one of the largest yearly gatherings in the city. Opposition leader Jagmeet Singh and Toronto Mayor Olivia Chow were among the notable figures present at the event.

The incident has heightened tensions between India and Canada, with India urging Canada to address such activities that could potentially strain bilateral relations and pose risks to public safety.
