Another insider echoed the notion that Jean's plan to leave predates the current controversy.

"Scientists need to aggressively engage the denialists and politicians who attack climate science," he said . "We are taking the fight to them at NCAR and manager of the AGU's project, saying scientists are signing up because they're eager to address what they perceive as climate misinformation .

"People do believe that, but it's complete misinformation ," she said . "Statistically, there is no increase in someone's risk if they wear less clothing. Most of the time, when people are sexually assaulted, it's by someone they know; a partner, a family member, an acquaintance or friend."

OTTAWA - National security adviser Daniel Jean says it was important to brief the media about the prime minister's visit to India to dispel "co-ordinated misinformation" about the presence of a convicted attempted assassin at an event on the trouble-plagued trip.

Jean appeared Monday before the House of Commons public safety and national security committee to explain his role in the controversy, which has plagued Justin Trudeau's government for weeks.

Jean has been at the centre of a political uproar over the trip after giving a background briefing to reporters in which he suggested factions in the Indian government were behind the embarrassing revelation that a convicted attempted assassin had been invited to two prime ministerial events.

“SAWS will only pay for the water it receives,” has been SAWS President and CEO Robert Puente’s mantra and its one that he can still say under the new contract. “There are some groups that have been providing misinformation ,” said Mayor Ivy Taylor, who has an ex officio seat on the SAWS board.

“There has been a fair amount of misinformation that's been circulated,” Miller said in a Friday news conference, in which he spent an hour attempting to dispel that misinformation .

Jaspal Atwal, a B.C. Sikh convicted of attempting to assassinate an Indian minister in 1986 during a visit to British Columbia, was photographed at one event in Mumbai with the prime minister's wife, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau.

His invitation to a second event was rescinded after news of his presence broke.

During the media briefing, Jean advanced the theory that rogue factions in India may have arranged for Atwal's attendance in a bid to prevent Prime Minister Narendra Modi from becoming too cosy with a foreign government they believe is sympathetic to extremist Sikh separatists.

Jean said Monday the briefing was intended to dispel public suggestions that Canadian agencies could have acted sooner to ensure Atwal did not attend the first event.

"I provided information to counter the false allegations," Jean said.

"We take the relationship with India very seriously. We remain vigilant to any potential threat."
