Math is hard.
Jagmeet Singh is polling around 12-15%.
The Ontario PC Party led by Doug Ford won a landslide majority with 61% of the seats, and 41% of the popular vote in the Ontario election.
But in Jagmeet Singh’s world, that somehow means that Doug Ford and Conservatives are fringe candidates, while he somehow represents the majority.
As noted in a recent report, here’s what Singh said:
“Singh told his caucus during a retreat in Surrey, B.C., that Trudeau’s explanation for disavowing the promise was that he was worried a new electoral system might facilitate the rise of far-right, fringe parties.
“First-past-the-post didn’t stop Doug Ford from coming into power in Ontario,” Singh said, to laughs and applause from NDP members of Parliament.
“It didn’t stop him from using the notwithstanding clause to continue a petty vendetta against the City of Toronto, to abrogate our charter rights to continue this vendetta.”‘
Singh also oddly implied that the electoral system should have stopped the Conservatives from hiring Hamish Marshall, and then claimed that Maxime Bernier was creating an “anti-immigrant” party.
Singh’s comments only confirm that he’s a far-left, social justice warrior who is totally out of touch with reality.
If Doug Ford is a “fringe” candidate despite winning 41% of the vote and getting a huge majority of seats, what does that make Jagmeet Singh – who polls show is way back and tied with Elizabeth May for ‘preferred prime minister.’
No wonder the NDP can’t raise any money or gain any support.
