Jagmeet Singh : The Colour of Politics – The Fifth Estate

[ ♪♪ ] [ Cheering ]>>I like your beard.>>Thank you, I like yours too.>>Thank you.>>So, I’m a social media guy
and if it doesn’t happen on social media, it’s
like it never happened. Oh, my God, don’t get jealous. I speak French, Punjabi. I understand Hindi and Urdo. I fully support
same sex marriage. We need to have
safe injection sites. We need to focus
on harm reduction.>>David: Okay, so you got
policy ideas, but do you know how to dance?
>>I do. [ ♪♪ ]>>You get the
impression that– that the white media seems
hit by a kind of exotica.>>Do you think Canada is
ready for a Sikh Prime Minister?>>Thank you. We are not worried about this.>>This question of,
is Jagmeet a separatist? These are not questions
that we would ask, you know, if someone
had Irish descent. [ Cheering ]>>In this edition of
The Fifth Estate, David Common tells the
inside story of Jagmeet Singh’s campaign. [ ♪♪ ]>>This is the number
I do, like the the V. So I do it that a lot.>>David: Jagmeet Singh is
like a boxer before a match. In this ring, he’s the underdog. Last to enter the race. And outside of Ontario,
few know him.>>I am proud to announce that I
am running to be the leader of the New Democratic Party
of Canada. [ Cheering and Applause ]>>David: But the young, polish
newcomer has plenty of swagger. Bold for a man now learning
he’s up against the party establishment. [ Indistinct Talking ]>>We added ten minutes.>>David: Singh is about to
hold his first press conference.>>And we’ll also step in if we
think its going too long, right?>>David: At his side, two key
confidants who will guide him to victory. Longtime friend and now
Press Secretary Amneet Bali. Along with Jack Layton’s
former speechwriter, Willy Blomme.>>I’m thinking you might
have some questions.>>David: Only minutes in,
there is a heckler ranting about religion. [ Inaudible Heckling ]>>It almost sounded violent. So, in that moment, what I
am thinking is the safety of Jagmeet, the safety
of others in the room, and how do we de-escalate the
situation as quickly as we can?>>David: It’s off camera but
close enough that his team ends the news conference.>>That was our last question… sorry, that was
our last question. Thank you.>>So when I kind
of give the signal, she wrapped of the questions and
we took him through a pathway in the back through the
kitchen into another room.>>David: But that is exactly
what Jagmeet wants to do.>>David: This will be an
early glimpse of his style. Embracing confrontation
to disarm it. But his team’s nervous.>>David: It would become
a recurring theme of the campaign. More questions about
religion would follow. And, in many ways, Singh has
been preparing for them his whole life.>>Right around
when I was seven, I started keeping my hair and
wearing kind of like a kid’s version of a turban. And that’s around the time when
I started facing more and more bullying based on
the way I looked. And I remember that distinctly
and that being kind of an on-going thing, and it really
makes you feel like there’s something wrong with
you for being you, something that you can’t change. It’s not like you can
change the colour of your skin. So it really gives you this
sense of shame about who you are. But the positive side of it was
that I became more sensitive to unfairness around me. So, once I started
experiencing it, experiencing it
myself, I noticed that I wasn’t alone.>>David: Jagmeet Singh
was born in Ontario. But early on, his father moved
the family to Newfoundland to finish medical school. The tallest here,
that’s Jagmeet, with his sister Manjot
and brother Gurratan.>>Big Brother Jagmeet to me was
someone who was always looking after me. He was someone who,
at one point in my life, I think it’s fair to say he– he almost took on the
role of father figure.>>David: But something
else was happening too. At home, Singh’s father
was suddenly sick, couldn’t work. With money drying up,
it was up to the eldest son.>>I was the only person
earning money in the family, the only person that
was paying for the bills. And I know a bit of what it’s
like to have that pressure of not being able to– or the pressure of
knowing that, if I don’t work, there is not going to be– were not going to be
able to afford food.>>David: He relieved
that pressure with mixed martial arts. Even had dreams of
becoming a professional. But then took up law. Close friend Amneet, though,
was sure he was destined for politics.>>He’s the guy that everyone
in our community looks at as an older brother. He’s the guy you
go to for advice. So he’s someone that
we all look up to, we all connect to
and everyone respects.>>David: It was a rapid ascent. Within a few years,
be elected in Ontario. Then rising to become
deputy leader of Ontario’s NDP. [ Cheering ]>>Are you ready to march?>>I’m ready to march, yeah.>>You’re marching in Berks?>>Is that cool or not cool?
I don’t know.>>I mean, like,
it’s a gay parade. Birkenstocks are
totally fitting.>>They’re totally fitting?
Okay, good.>>You have no idea
how much I love you.>>Awe, you’re awesome,
thank you.>>David: Montreal’s
Pride Parade. A big platform. And marching just
steps in front of Singh? The man he needs to upstage, Justin Trudeau. Singh is a threat
to the Liberals, especially in the
diverse suburbs of Toronto and Vancouver. Key to any majority.>>David: Singh
may look relaxed… but he has a problem
here in Quebec. At the heart, questions about
the role religion plays on his politics. Concern coming, not
just from the right, but from the progressive left.>>Most people have concerns
with him are concerned because of the fact that he’s showing
his religion and he’s having an impact on his political vision.>>David: Helen Buzetti is the
parliamentary bureau chief for Le Devoir.>>For most people, it’s really
a question of what’s the place of religion? And you have to take this
in the broader context of how Quebec feels about
religion in general. We have had all this revolution
tranquil in the sixties and, although Quebecers like to see
this as their great moment, of proof that they’re
so progressive, revolution tranquil was as much
of catching up with the other provinces as anything else. So, people are really concerned. They’re really suspicious of
anybody who pretends to be religious and do politics. [ ♪♪ ] [ Speaking French ]>>And I would just be
careful with the “eh” and “ah”, sometimes they sound the
same so I would be careful to annunciate.>>David: Team Jagmeet
has a plan for Quebec. And it starts with
brushing up his French.>>Ready, said, go! [ Speaking French ]>>All right.>>All right, getting
sharper and sharper.>>Indeed.>>David: But he’s also
learning the lesson of Quebec’s discomfort with overt
religious symbols, including his own. [ Speaking French ]>>I may not have the same
identity in terms of my visual appearance, but in
terms of my values, these are values that the people
of Quebec really believe in. And I want to show that I
share that same connection, that I get those
same values, and, in fact, those are my values. And that connection is a far
stronger connection than any sort of dissimilarity that
might exist because of my visual appearance.>>These are some of the
people that have made us achieve some historic fundraising.>>David: There may
be trouble in Quebec, but Ontario is a
different story.>>Take it, take
it over the top. And we have to
make sure it’s known. That whatever, I’m all
right, I’m kind of cool. But more important
than me is the team, it’s all of you
that make this possible. So thank you.>>It’s true, it’s true.>>You’re awesome.>>David: All leadership
races are about signing up new members.>>What’s our goal? When we make a member,
what are we trying to do? What are we trying
to inspire in people?>>Uh, well, we’re trying to
make out you Prime Minister of Canada.>>Well that–
that’s a huge honour.>>David: With just
days remaining, Team Jagmeet will
sign up 47,000. More than the party’s ever seen.>>Oh, you’re too young
though to sign up as a member.>>David: His strength is
leading to much greater confidence.>>All this work is to
sign up the first faces, to sign up new members.>>David: There is a near
constant presence on Facebook and Instagram, and a willingness
to stretch the usual boundaries. [ ♪♪ ]>>Hi, my name is Theo. I’m a campaign manager.>>David: Even jokingly casting
the daughter of his field director as campaign manager.>>Uncle Jagmeet needs
as many people as possible. Can we count on you? We don’t have much time left! Click to donate.>>David: But as his
momentum grows on social media, another event, shared globally,
will put Singh on the map.>>Shut up!>>It’s okay. So what this is… what this is…>>..we don’t want to
be intimidated by hate. We don’t want hatred to
ruin a positive event, right?>>Go ahead.>>We don’t want hatred
to ruin a positive event. So let’s show people how we
would treat someone with love. We welcome you.
We welcome you. We welcome you. We love you. I wasn’t angry in the moment. I felt more concerned
about the people in the room. And I didn’t want this to create
a bad taste in the mouths of people, young people
were in the room. I didn’t want them to feel upset
so I was really concerned about the people in the room.>>I’d like to hear what
he has to say.>>We’re not worried about this.>>David: It was a
transformational event, catapulting him from the
campaign to national and international celebrity
recognized not only for the woman’s attack, but
for Singh’s response.>>And someone
asked the question, “Well, did you prepare
yourself for this event?” Or “Did you prepare
yourself for this happening?” And I’m like, “No no, no, I
didn’t prepare myself” But in a way your whole life
prepare you for this moment. And I thought you know what? That’s right, I’ve faced much
more aggressive situations, physically aggressive
situations, where I actually had to defend myself. [ ♪♪ ]>>David: The next morning,
Singh is on the West Coast.>>What’s up, everybody? We’re on a seaplane, about to
see some really cool stuff. Come join me on this
beautiful journey.>>David: This is
the home stretch.>>I have to do it again
on Instagram so this is the beauty
of Nanaimo. Take a look at it,
look at it’s glory. Lovely.>>David: While Jagmeet shares
an enormous amount of his life on social media, there are
aspects that he keeps private. Is there a partner that you
have in your life that you would share with us at this time?>>At this point, I can
neither confirm or deny.>>David: Okay, very good,
very good.>>Good to see you.>>Very happy to
meet you, Jagmeet.>>Pleasure.>>Congratulations on
putting your name forward. I’m not decided yet.>>That’s all good. Thank you, thank you.
Hey, how are you?>>David: In just weeks,
Singh has come to dominate. That is clear in
the final debate. Matched against more
seasoned competitors, he is at ease,
and on the offensive.>>The question is do
you support the continued prosecution of people just
because they have mental issues? Do you support the continued
prosecution of people because they are poor? Do support the
continued prosecution of–>>No.>>–people who are addicted?
>>No.>>Then let’s call for a
move to decriminalize all personal possession.>>I will turn it over the Guy,
we can talk later.>>And without further ado,
I will introduce you to Jagmeet Singh.>>David: Singh is on a
roll in the final days… comfortably working rooms
of supporters, but even here, he’s dogged by a
perennial question.>>Do you think Canada
is ready for you, for a Sikh Prime Minister? [ Cheering ]>>Thank you. You put me in front of people,
I will win them over. I’m confident. But I also have some evidence. They did some polling,
and it said that the majority of Canadians are ready. There was a recent poll
that came out about three weeks ago and
it said that the majority of Canadians are ready to vote
for a prime minister that had a turban and beard. So thank you very much. [ Applause ]>>Thank you, thank you. Thank you.
Love you all.>>David: That is an issue
that just won’t go away. In country that has
that celebrates diversity, there is a continued
infatuation with difference.>>You get the impression
that– that the white media seems hit by a kind of exotica.>>David: Ujjal Dosanjh is
the former Premier of BC.>>It shouldn’t be
treated as something to explore. Let’s explore
Jagmeet Singh’s faith or his turban or let’s
explore his colour. And I just think
that that’s wrong. I mean, let’s talk
about his politics. Let’s talk about
what he stands for. If, you know,
talk about it but, you know, talking about hit this extra
nonsense is absolute nonsense. [ ♪♪ ]>>David: For Jagmeet Singh,
the personal is political.>>David: As you’ll see,

position to commit a barbaric act of genocide
against their own citizens. [ ♪♪ ]>>You count on The Fifth Estate
for investigative journalism that matters. The Fifth Estate team
often counts on you, the viewers, for tips

out other ways to get in touch. [ ♪♪ ] [ Singing ]>>David: Mid campaign
and time for a break. Jagmeet Singh is attending
the wedding of close friend and campaign advisor Amneet Bali. The bride and groom are
emphasizing how Sikh teachings will be central to their lives. For Jagmeet Singh, this is an
opportunity to explain what was central to his
political beginnings.>>David: Singh’s own political
awakening began with a meeting of friends discussing a
horror on another continent, decades earlier.>>David: He’s talking about
the events of 1984 in India. Following the assassination of
Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by her Sikh bodyguards, government
tolerated mobs murdered at least 3,000 Sikhs. Singh was just five at the time. But the memory has rippled
through his community and would lead Singh and his
friends to activism.>>We had grown up in a
community that had been so deeply impacted and there
was so much trauma in our community. People– we saw our parents,
we saw our friends, families, who all had
lost someone. Someone had been picked
up by the police in Punjab and disappeared.>>David: It started
with activism, joining protests in the Toronto area, and soon
moving to the political arena.>>When we started
talking about these things, 1984, the Sikh Genocide,
it came to a point where we, you know, we felt like it needed
to be addressed politically. There was a conversation that
took place at a certain point, which was the decision to say
we are now going to go from our grassroots activism and extend
that into political activism.>>David: But where?
And how? The group went
political shopping, starting with
Ontario’s Liberals.>>I believe it was
Dalton McGinty at the time, said something like, “Well, 1984
was a long time ago”. The Conservatives at the
time didn’t really even want to acknowledge what we were saying. And there was really only one
political leader that stood up and defended us,
and that was Jack Layton.>>David: In 2011, Singh would
be elected as a New Democrat to Ontario’s legislature. Where he took on a
number of provincial issues. But recognition of 1984 would
never be far from his mind.>>I move that, in the
opinion of this house, the Government Of Ontario should
recognize the state organized violence perpetrated against
the Sikhs throughout India as a genocide.>>David: His activism
has left some in the Indian Government seething. He’s being blocked
from visiting the country. Major Indian newspapers
suggests Singh’s political rise is supported by those in Canada
who want a separate Sikh state.>>Why is it that folks in
India always see you and others as separatists?>>I don’t know. You’d have to ask them. Something that I
believe in very firmly, though, as a human rights activist,
as someone that’s a Canadian, we know very clearly
that everyone has the right to determine their future.>>When you say you
support it, what do you support?>>The rights for every human
being to have that ability to determine their future. Self determination is a
right that I support and the United Nations supports.>>David: It is a
careful answer. Not endorsing Sikh separatism,
not rejecting it. Leaving Singh open
to more questions.>>Can you be the leader
of a federal political party… and support a movement
for dismemberment of India? I think that’s a question that
foreign policy people might be interested in.>>David: A Sikh himself,
former BC Premier Ujjal Dosanjh thinks Singh
can’t have it both ways.>>To say that another country,
or have sympathies for the division of another
country based on religion, I think it’s just wrong. You can’t be a secular for
Canada and a non-secular for India.>>David: That nexus
of politics, Canadian and Sikh, and the history
that comes with it, will continue to follow
Singh through this campaign and beyond. [ ♪♪ ]>>David: Mid September,
online voting is about to start, so today is the last pitch for
the four candidates and Singh is confident. Before he takes to
the stage, Singh has a ritual. High energy music,
a last second motivator.>>My secret will be known now. [ Chanting “Jagmeet” ]>>David: Singh has received
the most endorsements, has raised the most money, has
signed up the most new members. There is no question,
he has the momentum. It is evident on his face,
and here, embracing his mother.>>Wow, thank you,
thank you very much.>>David: Coming up, the last
minute scramble for votes.>>Thank you so, so much. We have one hour left so
we really appreciate that.>>We are finally ready
to reveal the results of the first round. [ Cheering ] [ ♪♪ ]>>There’s always

has a moment to unwind. Okay, so you got policy ideas
but do you know how to dance?>>I do. Just like high fives like this?>>Just straight up?>>Yeah, just straight up
and you kind of sidestep.>>David: Oh, I see
you doing that. Oh, up and down.>>That’s a good one,
that’s a good one.>>David: The celebration of
Sikh weddings goes on for days. Singh just managed to
make it to this final event. Next, he’ll find out if all
his hard work has paid off.>>Oh, let me check, I’ll have
to check my phone here. Literally 12 minutes. We’ve got 12 minutes
till the results come out. You know, I called up my brother
and I called up my sister and I said “This is a
historic moment. “This is a moment you need to
sit down with my nieces “and nephews, your kids,
and tell them what’s “about to happen.”>>David: Jagmeet Singh
hopes this will be a walk towards a win.>>Jagmeet! Jagmeet!
Jagmeet!>>Two more minutes. We’ve got to get
you in your seat.>>David: Already seated,
his camera shy parents. On the other side,
campaign manager Michal Hay. For a man who normally
exudes confidence, today, Singh looks nervous.>>We are finally ready
to reveal the results of the first round. [ Cheering ]>>David: To win, one of the
four candidates needs to take more votes than
the others combined. Many believe it won’t
happen on the first ballot. In fact, in the party’s history,
it’s only happened twice. For Jack Layton and the
party’s founder, Tommy Douglas.>>As the numbers were
coming in, I was trying to count them in my mind but I was
so excited that my mouth all of a sudden
just disappeared.>>Charlie Angus,
number of votes… 12,705. [ Clapping ]>>Niki Ashton,
number of votes… 11,374. [ Cheering and Applause ]>>Guy Caron,
number of votes… 6,184. [ Cheering and Applause ]>>As soon as that final
number came out before Jagmeet, we knew that we had
gotten over 51 per cent.>>Jagmeet Singh,
number of votes… 35,266. [ Cheering and Applause ]>>I don’t have the words. I don’t have the words
to capture this journey.>>Jagmeet! Jagmeet!
Jagmeet!>>I want to inspire people
to feel like they belong in this country. That everyone should feel
empowered in their ability to get involved in politics,
in leadership, and committee activism. Because there’s a lot of
barriers that still exist, a lot of people don’t see
themselves reflected in leadership.>>Let me say it’s an
incredibly profound honour. Thank you. [ Cheering and Applause ]>>It was an impressive
achievement for a visible minority person to achieve this
kind of win on the first ballot. And you know, that’s a
tremendous achievement in addition to actually
handling that heckler in a very admirable fashion. So, he has some great
qualities to be a leader.>>All right, so let’s rewind
and start from the beginning. Anyways, it’s pretty crazy. I think all of us realize
where much of the started, which is in their basement. We used to literally get
together and just talk about how we wanted to organize
and mobilize and change the world and here we are today.>>David: These are many
of the core friends who, a decade ago, launched
Jagmeet Singh into politics.>>This all started with what? No resources.
>>Yeah.>>No experience.>>No experience. No rhyme or reason. No one even to, like,
guide us. It was literally just,
knuckleheads coming together.>>David: That journey began as
young activists advocating for Sikh issues. Now they don’t want
to be defined by it. Their horizons…reaching
further.>>It’s our job to make
sure that we do our best to fight against people who
want to put us in boxes. You know, or put Jagmeet
in a box or make him, you know,
responsible for, like, you know, a whole community
or something like that, where other people aren’t
put to the same standards.>>David: Of course, there has
never been a prime ministerial hopeful like Jagmeet Singh. And for the best friend he
began that journey with, Singh now carries the
hopes of a generation.>>We’re in a situation now
where we’ve actually realized one of our goals,
which is to have Jagmeet in a position where he can run for
Prime Minister of Canada, right? You know, I hope in ten years
that there’s another, you know, there’s another group of ten
that are sitting at a table like this talking about the
magic that they created.>>A group of ten, man!>>Group of ten. [ ♪♪ ]

100 thoughts on “Jagmeet Singh : The Colour of Politics – The Fifth Estate

  1. Ask him about his khalistani supporters who blew up a airplane killing 350 people. Never trust a guy who believes in sky fairies(God).

  2. Sikhs are the biggest double faced people on the earth.
    They will justify violence from their community and cry for centuries for violence against them.
    So the terrorist Bhindrawale is glorified by them.
    They treat migrants in punjab like dirt while begging for equal rights in Western countries.

  3. I know this is a serious topic and this video was very interesting but am i the only one who thinks this guy is radiating SOOOOO much confidence like wow he's so attractive!

  4. “The question of, ‘is Jagmeet a separatist’, these are questions that wouldn’t be asked of someone of Irish decent.”
    Within 52 seconds (the intro to this biography), he already made himself irrelevant. The Bloc Québécois aren’t of Irish decent but they from time to time spoke of separating. Just like a typical leftists he resorts to playing the race card! How out of touch can he get! I’m a millennial, a racial minority, and thankfully a common sense conservative. It’s utter nonsense for him to make such a statement. It’s an absolute travesty, also an absolute senseless act to play the racial card. Like pretty boy Justin, he’s the wrong man for the job!

  5. “He’s the kind of guy everyone looks at as an older brother…”, too bad he’s a clueless socialist.

  6. Kudos to Jagmeet though in how he handled the meshuga woman at a gathering of young Sikhs.
    One woman asked whether or not Canada was ready for a Sikh PM. I agree with what he said that polls show yes.
    If he was a common sense kind of person I’d support him, but sadly he’s a clueless socialist.

  7. Some of his core make me question. They want the best for their community, they’re seemingly proud of their religion, yet you have guys with cut hair and trimmed beards and no turban.

  8. What a wonderful country Canada is ! The sense of acceptance for someone who does not look like them but they believe in him, is incredible.

  9. Am not racist
    but why use his religious things in public, in Western world
    You should put your religion and costume in home other wise you face racist
    Bring knife, covering head like stupid this stuff shows he is a racist

  10. comin from here in India… i understand why ppl are worried about relsigion…it is a mess because of religious wolves in sheeps clothing-first talk of development then release religious hate n divide the nation.

  11. Indian national congress party did it. And still the relatives of these very sikhs are voting for Congress party time and time again (in Punjab congress won 60% of MP seats). What does that say about their outrage?

  12. Wow He does His Turbin so Pretty Geometrically Pretty and Stuff Fo Sho and Love Those Colors For Sure !

  13. 26:30 How Beautiful I Almost started crying a little what Great Good Friend He is Loved Sos much I Hope him and all his friends are happy in Life For Sure !

  15. This is the exact replica of Justin Trudeau only he's Pakistan just like Justin Trudeau this guy's going to finish destroying Canada remember Canada this guy was hired by Justin Trudeau this guy promised to rehire Justin Trudeau after he wins election so this guy wins Justin Trudeau will not be gone remember that…..

  16. Jagmeet sings grandfather fought the British empire in India now he running in a crown colony. I have much suspicion.

  17. Jagmeet Singh is really a dynamic person no doubt.. He is also a good leader for Canada.. the problem is he wants sympathy from people for the potential political benefits which he is already gaining by defame the India and Indian government and Issue happened in India in the past.. He wants a separate country for Sikhs of India, He may not admit it publicly but he does want. Here in India the ground reality is no Sikh is demanding for a separate country, Every Sikh is Happy to be an Indian with their own unique Sikh culture.. So Jagmeet Singh is just using India's past for his own political gains in another country.. Not everything the guy is trying to show you is true..
    I'm sorry for my grammar..
    Jai Hind..🇮🇳

  18. What ever his religion, he needs to explain it so people will know where he stands. I don't carry a catalog of turbins.

  19. I respect the "True" Heritage and Tradition of Canada. The WHITE European immigrant build Canada, NOT the Indigenous people, Asian or African. Sikh culture is not a Canadian culture!….HE WILL NEVER BE PM OF CANADA.

  20. He seems like a nice and caring person. I hate to say this but no matter how you slice it, in the end, it will be his appearance that will matter to many.

  21. When I saw that a Sikh was running for Prime Minister I didn't flinch in the slightest because it just seemed COMPLETELY normal at this day and age. Anyone who can't accept this should get in a time machine and go back to a 100 years ago. I really like what Jagmeet stands for! Can't wait to learn more!

  22. A person who supports a radical Sikh separatist group which bombed Air India flight in 1991. This is definitely not the person for the PM's post.

  23. It’s very disgusting when people have hate on someone just because they wear a turban or are of a different skin colour. Good people come in all different sizes shapes and colours.


  25. The FACT is – Indian's dislike Asian people. We don't consider INDIAN, PAKISTAN, BANGLADESH as Asian, they are East Indian. The majority of real Asian; Chinese, Koreans, Japanese, Filipino etc. WILL NOT VOTE for Singh. They've don't care about his "Character or Policy". Singh will be judge by his appearance and religion. Most Asian are christian/catholic. Asian people look to Europeans (White People) as there role model and rather see a white person in leadership for Canada!

  26. 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦


  27. Jagmeet wants to overcome prejudice. His beliefs underline the fact that we are all equal. Yet his people fight to have special rights like the wearing of a Kirpan or not having to wear a motorcycle helmet while on a motorcycle (to be clear). There's a Sikh community that wants to separate from Canada… maybe their values aren't the same as the rest of the country? Maybe it's better that a man who makes his religion part of his politics shouldn't run our country?

  28. Canada don't believe these people they are some of the biggest hypocrite, they only care about their people. Canada will never vote you so stop right now. Canada wake up, don't believe words. God forbid…

  29. Not happening. If anyone read history they'll see that the biggest enemy of Islam are the Sikh and then the Sikh hate Christians next, and Canada doesn't need a leader who has hate towards an entire Canadian population of Muslims or Christians.This is only going to bring an unwanted company like it's already happened to Germany, France and the USA.

  30. Their own people told us not to trust them, they will say what they want to get their way. Canada be careful of these 😈 they are real. Not in this country, Please natives take back your Country.
