MPP Jagmeet Singh jumps into federal NDP leadership

Tuesday, May 16, 2017
Ontario NDP MPP Jagmeet Singh has joined the race to become the leader of the federal New Democrats. Singh says he is driven by a desire to create a more “inclusive Canada.”

If Jagmeet Singh is successful, he would be the first non-Caucasian to helm a major federal party.

Singh, 38, is known around the legislature as a fashion plate with a recent spread in GQ, a Sikh who pairs his colourful turbans with three-piece suits, a mixed martial arts fighter, an avid social media user and lawyer-turned-politician.

Singh said he will later roll out a policy platform, but listed the major issues facing Canada as inequality, climate change, Indigenous reconciliation and electoral reform.
