    Singh has lost all credibility, it makes sense though: he’ll do anything to be like Trudeau.

    Not surprised… Before the election he straight up said he would side with Trudeau no matter what if it was against Conservatives… The ignorance and bias is real..

    • @CplLe52irRC it’s exactly what the constituents voted for. I’m not NDP but I understand politics is opinion based and every Canadian is entitled to theirs no matter what it is.

    • @Susan Teeter Not me! I voted NDP for the party to be able to make up it’s own mind and represent the constituents under the NDP banner, not the Lieberal’s! If they’re continually going to cave to the Lieberal’s idealism, my vote is wasted.

    • Isn’t that the exact same thing the Conservatives say and do against the Liberals? They all do it, that is politics. So ignorance and bias is real by all parties then. Maybe one day we won’t have democracy and we will be governed by a group called Happy Canada Party or some along those lines. Kind of scary.

      No one wants another conservative running the country

      I would not give my vote to the PCs either anyone but them

  6. Jagmeet forgot the part about how his party is 30 million dollars in debt and can’t afford an election because they’ll lose so many seats.

    Singh likes his cushy job. He is in no hurry to lose it.

      I was referring to the number of seats the NDP won.

      2004- 19 seats
      2006- 29 seats
      2008- 37 seats
      2011- 103 seats
      2015- 44 seats
      2019- 24 seats
      So as I said, 2019 under J. Singh, the NDPs worst performance since 2004

      @J Parish not with the WE scandal following Trudeau.

    • @0880 Zero The CEO and VPs of oil companies give themselves crazy benefits and salaries……

    • @twelvepack101 I’m tired of our corrupt government that won’t answer even one question. That’s not democracy. That’s a dictatorship.
      Trudeau must go.

    • Can you do better? id love to see you try or just leave and dun come bk 😉

  8. Singh already said during the 2019 debates that if he was Prime Minister he would literally never agree with the conservatives on anything, ever. At least he’s keeping one of his campaign promises lmao

    • Exactly. Mindless thing to say when you’re supposed to pretend to represent Canadians. So in other words, conservatives negotiate something rational that would benefits all (miraculously) and hes gonna disagree? Nice logic singh or whatever his name is

    • He represents the party of labour in Canada, so its literally his job to oppose the party of business.

    • @Dan Vetor cons have become too polarized, I would’ve voted con if they were decent, no offense. Now I’m liberal.

    • @Ray Weiss Thinking like that is why the Americans still haven’t gotten a new covid relief bill.

  9. They’re all in cahoots. Theatre actors. Some of them literally.

    Shame on Singh, what a gutless move. And this is why the NDP will remain irrelevant at the polls.

    • Irrelevant at the poles but they hold all of the power! What a terrible system…

      @wais_45 they were very relevant was jack laton was the leader of the ndp

    • Jak off is what he is

      @Pepper Shaker Doubt it will….looks like a big win with a majority government rated at 90% a certainty

    • Paul Christensen | October 21, 2020 at 10:59 PM | Reply

      Gotta like all the posts declaring how irrelevant the NDP are……not sure what you just watched but I saw a leader of a party NOT fall into the same trap the Liberals did when they got their non confidence vote on Harpers Conservatives and an election in 2011. That election saw Harper get his majority government. All you Conservative clowns are so sure you will get to form government that you are willing to risk a majority Liberal government should you be wrong? Christ your narrow understanding of the situation is hilarious

  11. You’re a coward Singh… you’ve endorsed the most corrupt government this country has ever seen.

    he knows they will lose seats, this guy is a joke

  13. Can’t wait for the comments to get deleted. Usually that’s what happens

  14. Jack Layton was a bulldog. This guy is a little hamster.

  15. weak clown

    They will always use covid as an excuse!!!!! There all puppets

  18. So the party that came in fourth place in the election has all of the power? Great system….

  19. He just lost any chance of me ever voting for him.

  20. “we’re not going to give the liberals the elections they want” so we’re going to vote with the liberals
