The Canadian Armed Forces has dispatched a replacement plane and necessary parts to India to retrieve Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Canadian delegation. Trudeau’s original plane was grounded due to technical issues, leaving the Prime Minister stranded in India following the G20 leaders’ summit.
Efforts are being made by the Canadian delegation to depart from New Delhi as soon as possible, aiming for Tuesday afternoon local time. The Prime Minister’s Office has stated that the situation remains unpredictable and subject to change.
A CC-150 Polaris plane departed from CFB Trenton, Ontario on Sunday evening, making its way to India to facilitate the return of Trudeau and the Canadian delegation. Another plane accompanied the CC-150 Polaris to ensure that all necessary parts and equipment are available to address any technical issues that may arise.
The Canadian Armed Forces’ swift response showcases their commitment to ensuring the safe return of Prime Minister Trudeau and the Canadian delegation. Their ability to mobilize a replacement plane and provide the required resources highlights the importance placed on the Prime Minister’s safety during international trips.
Additional efforts are underway to ensure that all necessary arrangements are made to minimize any further delays in the departure from India. This includes coordinating with Indian authorities and airlines to expedite the process.
The situation serves as a reminder of the unforeseen challenges that can occur during international travel. Despite the hurdles faced, the Canadian delegation remains determined to swiftly resolve the situation and return home promptly.
Updates on the progress of the retrieval mission will continue to be provided as information becomes available.
