Jagmeet Singh Says Wouldn’t Support Conservative Minority, Raising Prospect Of Liberal-NDP COALITION

It appears to be majority or bust for the Conservatives.

It looks increasingly likely that there won’t be a Conservative minority government.

Either it’ll be a Liberal-NDP & perhaps Green coalition, or a Conservative majority.

That prospect became even more likely following comments by NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh:

As reported by CTV, Singh has responded to the Liberals release of Andrew Scheer’s 2005 remarks on same-sex marriage by saying he would not support the Conservatives if the NDP had the balance of power in a minority Parliament:

“Still, Singh said the video was a “resurfacing of Andrew Scheer’s disgusting prejudice against LGBTQI2S+ people.”

“This is exactly why, if Canadians deliver a minority government in October, I will not prop up Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives. We can’t trust Mr. Scheer or his caucus to champion the fundamental rights of Canadians,” Singh said in an emailed statement.”

Since Singh has NOT said he would refuse to support the Liberals, it is clear that he’s leaving the door wide open to a Liberal-NDP Coalition following the election.

This makes the stakes of the upcoming election even clearer. Either a Conservative majority, or a far-left coalition will be in power, and considering how the Liberals, NDP, and Greens view the Canadian energy industry, a left-wing coalition would significantly increase the possibility of Western separation.

I don’t think the NDP will have party status with how low he is polling.

Should I put my house up for sale now to move west? I could not handle watching what this divisive “lefty” supposed elitist mix will do more to destroy Canada. I and my family will vote Conservative and they had better get a majority or Canada is gone.

We are going into a recession,
the Liberals slashed health care funding in Canada. Funny how Conservatives were blamed for that. In England they are increasing retirement age to 75 this is coming to Canada because of the wonderful support we provide to other countries all over the world. Now we ignore the seniors, homeless, poor and First Nations who built the infrastructure and created medicare CPP and so many other wonderful programs.

When the cash flow stops from taxes and people are homeless, denied pension supports and other social structured items who will the good old NDP blame then?

Oh, that’s just great. If the party with the most seats is Conservative, the opposition will take over as the government. Some respect for democracy that is. Of course, since Liberal Justin Trudeau doctored up the Elections Act and Citizenship Act with changes so refugees could vote sooner, he, too is spitting at democracy. We really don’t have a democracy in Canada anymore. There isn’t one party that respects it.

When you cannot get elected on your own platform and see an opportunity — any opportunity — to become ‘part of the ruling group,’ you grab it — and that indicates how truly shallow the NDP are.
