Jagmeet Singh Faces Furious Protestors at Ontario Campaign Event
NDP leader Jagmeet Singh faced angry voters while leaving a campaign event out in Ontario.
Singh was in Peterborough to back Jen Deck — NDP candidate for Peterborough-Kawartha — in Ontario's upcoming provincial election slated for June 2.
However, he faced protesters who can be heard saying "You're a traitor" and "You're a piece of s--t," while others told him to go "f--k himself" as Singh was leaving. Some held up their middle finger to Singh
Protesters continued to swarm Singh while he worked his way through the crowd to get into a waiting SUV. It's not known if he had security with him.
Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath took to Twitter to condemn the actions of protesters, saying the party and she has their backs.
"So many times I've watched my friend @theJagmeetSingh meet hate with grace — just like he and our candidate Jen Deck did in Peterborough.
"But they shouldn't have to. They deserve to live and work freely, without intimidation.
"Jen and Jagmeet, we've got your back."
