Thanks to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his government that a dark chapter in Canadian history will finally have a closure on May 18. Monday, April 11 was a great day for the entire South Asian community to hear this announcement. At a very well organized Vaisakhi celebration on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Trudeau’s announcement was greeted with cheers, Bole So Nihal and great deal of enthusiasm not only by the attendees there but across this nation from sea to sea to sea. Finally, after 102 years, passengers of the ill- fated ship and their families have been vindicated. It is a commendable move. Justin Trudeau must be applauded for this.
