  • PM delivers remarks at a dinner in honour of Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, in Vancouver
    Prime Minister Modi, it has been a remarkable week. I think a great triumph. And certainly an honour after a three-city tour to welcome you here to British Columbia, Canada’s gateway to the Pacific, and the province where settlers from India first established a community in Canada more than a hundred years ago.

  • PM delivers remarks at the Laxmi Narayan Temple
    Thank you.  Thank you very much. Namaste. It’s a great pleasure for us to be here today at the Laxmi Narayan Temple.  I’ve been told that Narayan is a protector and his consort Laxmi, apart from being the embodiment of beauty, is also associated with success, prosperity and wealth.  Ladies and gentlemen, I can’t think of a better place to talk about the relationship between Canada and India. Friends, this is the most natural thing in the world – the relationship between our two countries.

  • PM announces significant support for the Thirty Meter Telescope
    Let me just give a bit of detail now.  What we’re actually announcing today, Minister Moore and myself, this is his bailiwick, is that Canada is making a ten-year, very large-scale contribution to the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) project that’s being developed internationally.  And that will allow us to remain a…really a world leader in both science generally and astronomy.  So it’s a big day and big announcement! And all affordable with a balanced budget.
