A report says the RCMP should’ve alerted Justin Trudeau’s protection detail that Jaspal Atwal – a man with a serious criminal record and a history of violence – might turn up during the prime minister’s February trip to India.
Atwal managed to attend one event before being barred.
The newly released report from the national-security committee of parliamentarians says the Mounties recognize their mistake in not passing along the information about Atwal – who had been convicted of attempted murder years earlier in B.C.
The heavily censored report also says government agencies do not have a comprehensive system – for vetting guest lists for foreign events involving the prime minister.
