Canadian PM Justin Trudeau refuses calls for Harjit Sajjan's resignation

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has refused resignation calls for Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan over his controversial comments over a 2006 offensive against the Taliban, media reports said. Mr Trudeau and Mr Sajjan endured a withering question-period offensive on Monday as opposition MPs accused the Canadian Defence Minister of "stolen valour" for overstating his role in planning Operation Medusa in Afghanistan.
