the Jagmeet Singh issue...

The NDP is tanking, and the talking heads at CBC are raising the spectre of racism. I think they may have it wrong. Canada is not the U.S. with it's strong history of religious dissidence. I rather think Canadians are put off by the open display of Sikhism. Whether I am entitled to draw a distinction between a religious/cultural distaste and racism might be challenged on both the left and the right. But I don't see them as the same thing. Regardless, I think it is clear that the NDP is risking extinction with the current leadership.

You're not wrong, the NDP has become less relevant as the liberals move farther left. Singh was elected as the NDP thought he'd be a good foil for Trudeau, GQ kind of guy and an actual education and law practice but the liberals have been eating the NDP's lunch for the last few years. The NDP are all jumping ship to the Greens now. We live in interesting times.
