Girls tells reality of Student Life in Canada

Canada is sometimes called ‘mini Punjab’ and why shouldn’t it be? It is well known that a large number of Punjabis have been living in Canada for years and they have actually developed a strong sense of community in the country. In 2015, Prime Minister Justin Treadeau remarked that he had more Sikhs in his cabinet than Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He has also been seen doing the Bhangra, preparing meals in gurdwaras and celebrating other festivals.

Why does he feel the need to do this? Because Indians make up a significant percentage of the Canadian population and he needs to acknowledge them in order to bring about an economic growth that is inclusive and reflects the diversity of his country. Clean roads, great facilities and free medical services paint an attractive picture of the country in the eyes of many.
