"if you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen
the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu.

Letter to the Editor Featured

As someone who has come to believe that all political parties have some great ideas and we can all learn from each other's political views, it is rare for me to actually take out a membership and vote for a potential leader of a party.

However, many years ago I was inspired by Jagmeet Singh, as a proud Sikh and wearing a turban, speaking passionately about the rights of LGBTQ people and the importance of equality, diversity, and inclusion and creating a country where all are welcome and have opportunities.

I felt I could relate to him and I felt he was speaking directly to issues that mattered directly to me especially as a gay South Asian that has often been marginalized and excluded.

I was asked by someone on his campaign team to support him for the federal NDP leadership. I took out a membership and voted for him.

We will find out on Monday if Canadians feel the same way about giving Jagmeet a chance as myself. Jagmeet is proving he has got what it takes to be PM. We will wait and watch it all unfold.
