Statement from NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh on an Inspiring Campaign

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh made the following statement:

“The results of this election have provided a historic opportunity for Canadians to win.

I believe that will happen when New Democrats use this opportunity to ensure that the government finally delivers for people, and not for the super wealthy and powerful.

The real winner of this election is not a party or a leader. Canadians sent a clear message: they want a government that works for them, and they are not satisfied with the old ways of doing politics. And if all MPs elected tonight hear that message, and act on that message, the real winners of this election will be Canadians.

In the days ahead, I’ll be meeting with my new caucus, to talk about how we will deliver for people.

The people we have been fighting for, and the principles we stand for, will guide us in the days, weeks and months ahead. The NDP will be constructive. We’ll respect the choices Canadians have made in this election. We’ll approach building the new parliament with open minds and open hearts.”
