A video of two groups of Punjabi students went viral on social media causing the incident to make national headlines. The students are mainly international students from Punjab who aren’t as interested in education as students from the past.
The following video went viral on social media:
Canadian MP Raj Grewal took to social media to warn the students:
“We’ve been receiving many phone calls and emails on the video that recently went viral and we are taking this very seriously.
We would like to remind all international students that studying in Canada is a privilege. Anyone who is charged and convicted should know that their immigration status will be reviewed and deportation is a potential end result.
Should community members have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to call or email our office.”
Raj Grewal stressed that many students get a great education and take advantage of the opportunity but those who cause violence need to be dealt with legally.
