While speaking with Montrealers at Atwater Market this morning ahead of tonight’s French-language leaders’ debate, Jagmeet Singh was approached by a man as reporters cameras captured the exchange.
After the NDP leader shook his hand, the man spoke to Singh in English.
”You know what?  You should cut your turban off.  You’ll loo like a Canadian.”
”Oh, I think Canadians look like all sorts of people,” replied Singh.
”That’s the beauty of Canada.”
”Yeah, but …” the man continued before being cut off.
”That’s okay, I don’t agree, sir,” Singh said.
”In Rome, you do as the Romans do,” the man continued.
”Hey, but this is Canada, you can do whatever you like,” Singh said before walking away.
”All right, take care, eh?” the man said.
”I hope you win.”
Singh has said an NDP government would not challenge Quebec religious symbols law in court, but hopes his public identity can change Quebecers’ minds about wearing religious symbols.
