Jagmeet Singh rallies volunteers with doughnuts

NDP leader kicks off get-out-the-vote effort in Burnaby South
Sngh doughnuts
NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh brought doughnuts to volunteers at his Burnaby South campaign office Monday.

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh gave volunteers words of encouragement and boxes of doughnuts to kick off the get-out-the-vote effort in his home riding Monday morning, as Canadians across the country went to the polls in the country’s 43rd general election. 

Singh greeted a few dozen supporters gathered at his campaign office near the Royal Oak SkyTrain station in Burnaby South. 


“Now this is the last day, and this is when New Democrats show what we got. We out-hustle, we out-work, we out-heart everybody,” he said.

Singh led a national campaign that saw the NDP surge in the polls as Canadians increasingly approved of his leadership. 

The NDP leader has represented Burnaby South since February, when he won a byelection to replace former MP Kennedy Stewart, now mayor of Vancouver. 

Singh’s local opponents are Neelam Brar (Liberal), Jay Shin (Conservative), Brennan Wauters (Green), Brian Sproule (Marxist-Leninist), Al Rawdah (People’s) and Rex Brocki (Libertarian).

The Burnaby NOW will have full coverage as results begin to roll in after 7 p.m.
