Scheer, Singh make confident pitch to voters as polls move to favour Conservatives

  Scheer, Singh make confident pitch to voters as polls move to favour Conservatives Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is asking for a mandate to govern with increasing confidence as shifting polls favour his party to win the most seats for the first time in this campaign. Meanwhile, Jagmeet Singh is urging voters to park their votes with the NDP, despite poor polling numbers."I believe that Canadians are going to be very happy with that choice to vote Conservative," he told supporters on Saturday in B.C.

Over the course of the 43rd federal election campaign, there was one person who really seemed to attract the attention of many Canadians. Between making viral TikTok videos, creating “Punjabi Poutine” and Instagram DM’ing with Rihanna, NDP leader Jagmeet Singh was expected to earn his party up to 20 percent of the decided national vote. However, as the country’s votes begin to trickle in, it seems that Jagmeet Singh’s NDP leadership has lost the party power.

It is hard to deny that Jagmeet Singh has had a strong federal campaign. Between unofficial endorsements from Drake and Rihanna, to going viral for unique recipes and election rap videos, the NDP leader was largely expected to vastly increase support for his party.

  After the Bloc's gains in Quebec, Liberals now have another worry: a climbing NDP Jagmeet Singh's NDP is gaining in the polls after last week's English-language debate.That's because the NDP is having a bit of a moment. Both the Liberals and Conservatives appear to be losing steam, while the New Democrats have momentum heading into the election campaign's crucial final week.

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh says there are lessons to be learned from byelections but the only election that counts is the upcoming federal election. He says

Back in 2015, the NDP won 44 seats, earning them a 19.7 percent share in Canada. Today, the NDP has earned a projected 24 seats, with a 15 percent projection.

As the election results are beginning to trickle in across the country, it seems that the NDP has failed to garner the support expected so far this year, even losing seats in some ridings.

Earlier on in this campaign, it was predicted that Jagmeet Singh’s gentle nature and cool “dad-like” personality would provide a boost in support for the NDP, particularly from young people.

However, it seems that things haven’t quite gone to plan for the NDP, who have lost a considerable amount of seats, particularly in Quebec to Bloc Québécois.

Singh says abolishing the Senate would see Canadians better represented

  Singh says abolishing the Senate would see Canadians better represented TORONTO — NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh says following through on his party's long-standing pledge to abolish the Senate would give Canadians better representation. Singh says senators represent the interests of the political parties that appointed them as opposed to Canadians, including those from smaller provinces. As prime minister, Justin Trudeau introduced reforms to make the Senate more independent, including kicking senators out of the Liberal caucus, but critics say it is still a partisan body.The New Democrats propose working with the provinces to get rid of an institution the party labels as undemocratic and unaccountable.

VANCOUVER — NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh says appealing to young voters and speaking to them where they are has been a key part of his campaign strategy. The New Democrat leader says young voters have told him they often feel ignored by political parties and by government decision-makers.

While this does sound like bad news for Jagmeet Singh and the NDP, it isn’t necessarily. Not long ago, CBC officially declared that there would be a minority Liberal government in Canada, which will open up the opportunity for the Liberals and the NDP to work together.

A minority government means that the Liberal party will need to work with a second party in order to get legislation passed moving forward. Over the course of the election campaign, both Trudeau and Singh have flirted with the idea of coming together, although neither has made any sort of official commitments. With hundreds of thousands of votes still to count, the night is still young.

There is still plenty of opportunity for Jagmeet Singh and the NDP to pick up those significant additional votes, and with an election like this, nothing is certain!
