JAGMEET SINGH AND THE ROCKING CHAIR 

Libby Znaimer is joined by Duff Conacher, Co-Founder of Democracy Watch and David Tarrant, Vice President of National Strategic Communications at Enterprise.

Federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh has found himself in the hot seat over a rocking chair. What happened was his wife, Gurkiran Kaur Sidhu, posted a photo of a chair made by a Canadian company on her Instagram. Jagmeet also posted a photo of the chair with him sitting on it holding his child and a laptop with the caption: “how I’m spending my time these days. I have a new partner to spend time with”. The chair, valued at $1,895, was given to Sidhu as a gift from the company in exchange for promoting it on her social media. So the question becomes, do ethics policies apply to the family of political leaders and how big of an ethical problem is this for Singh?
