I’ve seen some mentions about Jaspal Atwal on Twitter, and commentary on the failure to not notice he was on the guest list - a failure to oppose him.

But what I don’t get is if you look at it in the other direction: why do some Canadian politicians support him or associate with him?

According to Canadian press, the MP responsible was Randeep Sarai.

He never officially stated what his ties are, but being a Sikh, it's not entirely impossible if he supports Sikh nationalism (which is Atwal's cause). It seems to be a popular position in Canada's Sikh communities as per the linked article.
