Jagmeet Singh poses himself as an ally of Trudeau but never really falls behind in digging his political grave. The leader of the New Democratic Party is on a mission to depose his ally from power and take his place.
Perhaps he is so ill at ease and can’t wait for the Canadians to overthrow Trudeau that he has started taking the prime-ministerial ship in his hands.
It seems Jagmeet has now realized that only criticizing the liberals and exposing their misdeeds isn’t enough to succeed in his political game, and therefore he is now on wheels, making foreign trips to collect some tips from officials on how to clinch victory in the upcoming elections.
Recently, the NDP leader Jagmeet Singh paid a weeklong visit to Germany, which saw him hold his first meeting with Chancellor Olaf Scholz, rub shoulders with a bevvy of officials and participate in panel discussions on security and democracy.
Has he been appointed by the Prime Minister of Canada to handle his meetings or he himself is keen to take the lead? Be it anything, it sounds odd for him to share his party’s ideas on an international stage.
“I want folks to think of us as an important place to consider in their own calculations or their own decisions,” Singh told the Star late last week.
“I also wanted to make it clear that we are important in making things happen in Canada, that we have shown a track record that we can get things done.”
The NDP leader, accompanied by MPs Heather McPherson and Charlie Angus, and national director Anne McGrath, visited Germany with a view to learning how to emerge victorious in the upcoming elections in Canada.
He was interested in how the Social Democratic Party (SPD), the sister party of the NDP, went from trailing in the polls to winning the German federal election in 2021.
“People didn’t think it was possible,” said Singh, adding, “There’s a lot to be learned and a lot for us to improve on.”
In order to get a behind-the-scenes look, Singh and his team met with the SPD’s directors of strategy and campaigning.
According to McGrath, she discovered that the SPD’s effort was motivated by a number of factors.
First, it conducted “an honest assessment” of its previous campaigns. It also emphasized that Scholz, a longtime politician, was a seasoned candidate for the job.
Scholz told Singh that he should no longer assume that Canadians associate the NDP with workers and labour rights. You have to tell them “relentlessly,” conveyed Scholz, whose party decided to spend more time courting that population.
Singh was also advised to focus on more than just the “victories” the NDP feels it has won as a result of the party’s deal with the Liberals, and instead look at what it should be working on next.
Clearly, now the NDP crew is back in the pavilion with brownie points on how to clinch power. Now, this meeting of a party leader with foreign officials might sound as odd as it is but this establishes our claim at TfI that Singh is now in a bid to wipe the liberal party off the political fabric of Canada.
As of late, Jagmeet Singh, the leader of the NDP, is never far behind when the Canadian public and the opposition begin criticizing the Liberals for their handling of a situation. Because he wants the liberal party to lose influence with the NDP in the assembly, the leader has the arrogance to speak out strongly against his own ally.
Yes, the NDP is attempting to completely destabilize Trudeau’s party. You see, by highlighting the problems that Canadians are facing, the NDP has been contributing to Trudeau’s demise. Jagmeet has suddenly taken on the persona of a good Samaritan and is criticizing the federal liberal party for its misguided endeavour. All for a sole purpose- to win power.
