Yes the ban is out on Sept 21 but I'd say the purpose of that letter is to put pressure on JT before the elections (many Indian-Canadians live in Canada as citizens). I'm thinking the same about the recent Biden move which extended restrictions with Canada till Sept 21. Looks like some leaders aren't happy with what JT's been doing.
One of the big reason for banning flights from India is that they don't trust the test results shown by Indians to board the flight.
This is the news from first time the ban was put in place.

Canadian Health Minister Patty Hajdu said that while Indian citizens accounted for 20% of all international arrivals, they represented over 50% of the positive tests conducted by Canadian airport officials.

And I know from acquaintances that people in India were getting fake Covid test results to board the flight. The numbers were just too big to ignore or just to say only few people were doing it.

Hey man, congrats. I read in one of your posts where you were to travel/resume school in Canada this August and wanted to send a webform updating your address. Did you finally send that update to IRCC. Secondly do you think that was what made your medicals get extended vis-a-vis made em continue your processing at Ottawa? Considering your are FSW-O
Or are you resident in the States?
Thx!
Just sent the webform like a week ago updating my address. The extension of the medical was done before that.
Ottawa has been my VO always, I was FSW-O now FSW-I and not a resident of the US (worked there for about 5 years recently), but I am from Mexico

Replace the 0 with a number. The other day I saw a few Indians littering near a Walmart, had to yell at them to clean their shit up. Swear to God they will turn toronto into a slum in a couple yrs.
Did they litter near the tent u pitched outside the Walmart navinball? U were complaining about the housing prices last I remember.

Guys supporting the Conservatives one question for you. Would the Conservatives take the liability for the mess created by the liberals? or rather it will be easier for them to clear all backlogs by canceling all the pending applications of FSW and start everything new? Definitely the latter one so just think before wishing anything.
See another thread. Legal falcon basically said that it was impossible. Please don’t say things that have no real basis.

Well they have to setup another process for Indians or impose vaccination mandate specifically for Indians.
Indians would rather take the vaccine mandate than pay several thousand dollars to travel through third world country.

Just heard about another medical extension for FSW-O in 5 days after the expiry date.
FSW apps will be cancelled due to backlog and there won't be any FSW draws till 3000. This is evident from the fact that those FSW apps are getting medicals extended. A guy from twitter told me whose fifth cousin's neighbor's high school crush's son's daughter works in a coffee shop just across from a VO in the Bahamas.
