JOINING VIDEO: Jagmeet Singh joined striking Unifor workers on the picket line outside Metro, Danforth

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Jagmeet Singh joined striking Unifor workers on the picket line outside Metro, Danforth.

Taking to social media, he wrote: "I support Metro grocery workers standing up for their rights. New Democrats have your back 
The price of food has sky-rocketed & workers are struggling to make ends meet — all while grocery CEOs rake in record profits
These corporations can afford to pay workers a decent wage."

Biography

Jagmeet Singh Dhaliwal was born in Scarborough, Ont., the eldest of three children to Harmeet Kaur and Jagtaran Singh. The family moved to Newfoundland for his father’s schooling, before returning to Ontario and settling in Windsor. Singh graduated from Western University and Osgoode Hall Law School, then practised as a criminal defence lawyer in Brampton. Mr. Singh married Gurkiran Kaur Sidhu in 2018, and they welcomed a daughter in January, 2022.

Political career

The son of Indian immigrants, Jagmeet Singh grew up in Scarborough, St. John’s and Windsor. His 2019 memoir, Love & Courage, described a wealthy upbringing clouded by difficulties living with an alcoholic father, who worked as a doctor and psychiatrist. Mr. Singh revealed in the book that he was sexually abused as a young boy by his taekwondo instructor and frequently faced racism and bullying.

The NDP website says Mr. Singh’s “early experiences are what shaped him and fuel his passion for justice.”

After an unsuccessful May 2011 run in the federal riding of Bramalea-Gore-Malton, he won a seat in the Ontario legislature later that year. He was named deputy Ontario NDP leader in 2015. Two years later, he won the leadership of the federal NDP and then a federal seat in the B.C. riding of Burnaby South.
