Gregor Robertson photographed with Ripudaman Singh Malik
Now a photo of Mayor Gregor Robertson and Malik taken on March 13, 2010 has surfaced.
We're advised that just prior to this photo, both the Mayor and councillor Raymond Louie (also in attendance) shook the hands of Malik in plain view of those in attendance.
has had direct links with both the Khalsa Credit Union
and the Khalsa schools.
According to the CBC
Investigators believed that Ripudaman Singh Malik
was the man who bankrolled the bombings.
faced eight counts - the same charges that his
co-accused Ajaib Singh Bagri faced.
The verdict was the same - not guilty on all counts.
Just last week Malik
was making headlines again when the BC government won the right to sue him to recover legal fees relating to the Air India bombing trial.
According to the Sun:
Thursday's ruling by Canada's highest court paves the way for the B.C. government to recoup $5.8 million paid for Malik's legal fees and interest after a funding agreement was reached on the eve of the historic Air India terrorism trial in 2003.
At the time, Malik
and co-accused Ajaib Singh Bagri were accused of killing 331 people in twin bombings on June 23, 1985 targeting Air India.
Needless to say, Young's alleged connection to Malik
is generating front-page headlines while Mayor Gregor's photo not so much.
I was invited to visit the Khalsa School
by the school's Principal, not Ripudaman Singh Malik
Had I known he
would have been present or was involved with the school I never would have attended.
No one involved with this school or Ripudaman Singh Malik
is involved in my campaign nor have I ever asked for his
Is it okay for the Mayor to attend an event with Malik
as long as it relates to something charitable?
Take a minute to fill out our online poll and let us know what you think.
UPDATE Mon @ 10:15 PM: Federal Liberal candidate Ujjal Dosanjh was on CTV News and Global TV News
tonight speaking out about politicians and what they should know about Ripudaman Singh Malik
The fact is you have to live in a cave or on some other planet to not know who Mr. Malik
is if you are politically at all conscious.
First of all Robertson is not posed with Malik
I don't think either Robertson or Elmore sought the endorsation of Malik
These politicians are not supposed to be psychic to know that Malik
will be there or will pop up there in the photo frame.
But let us not forget that he
was ACQUITTED by Supreme Court in a case where Government spent almost 100 million dollars against him.
He is still an official in Khalsa School and public servants do go there as matter of their job.
Wai Young didn't seek the endorsement of Malik
is CHOOSING to support her
will better represent our land.
Wai had no photo with Malik
, yet no one's cha
also told the Sher-E-Punjab host that his
group is supporting Liberal candidates in Surrey: Sukh Dhaliwal for Newton-North Delta, and Shinder Purewal in Surrey North."

The Mayor has a picture with Malik
and nobody says anything.
shakes Malik's hands and there is silence.
That's how one person describes the controversy over a Conservative candidate receiving an endorsement from Ripudaman Singh Malik
"This is the biggest criminal case in Canadian history and for her
to claim she
had no idea of Mr. Malik's
past and criminal ties is unacceptable.
Liberal candidate Ujjal Dosanjh says Ripudaman Singh Malik
Conservative rival in Vancouver South is different than Malik
supporting two Liberal candidates in Surrey ridings.
was acquitted of murder and conspiracy in the Air India trial six years ago.
Another example of the unethical and immoral nature of the beast called a "politician" . Notice they are not referred to as "Statesmen" anymore.
The Khalsa School
supports the notion of a Sikh nation which is to break away from India.
Malik being a previous member of the Bubbar Khalsa and and an associate of terrorists implies mandates and principles that espouse violence.
With the religion itself being a warrior religion, violence is considered an ends to a means.
- who was acquitted of murder and conspiracy in the 2005 Air India trial - is supporting Liberal Sukh Dhaliwal in Newton-North Delta and Shinder Purewal in Surrey-North.
Excerpt: "Anton said she immediately left when it became apparent that Vancouver councillors were being called to come up and accept a plaque while Malik
"Once they were getting people up to shake hands with Malik
, I left," she
"Robertson said he has never met with or shaken the hand of Malik
and will not accept an endorsement from him.
I didn't speak to Mr. Malik
When asked about Malik's support Ignatieff said, "I'm willing to have the support of anybody who's committed to democracy, non violence and human rights.
That's always been my position and the thing about that incredible community is that they've been through an experience of extremism 30 years ago and they have turned their back on it forever."
SO THAT MEANS UJJAL IS OPEN TO MALIK's
SUPPORT AS WELL?
It has been reported that Malik
has endorsed 2 Liberal candidates in Surrey ridings.
is endorsing the Conservative/Young as she
is running against Dosanjh.
If it weren't Dosanjh running in that riding, I would bet Malik
would be endorsing the Liberal candidate and not the Conservative.
Gregor got his photo op,thank you very much; Malik
got his name in the paper and now for all the good reasons, thank His Worship very much.
An important point regarding Young is that this was not her first meeting with Malik
The Young vs Robertson connection to Malik
is VERY different.
According to the Sun's Kim Bolan, Wai Young met with Malik
and some others at the house of a supporter on April 2, several days before her visit to the school.
