LOYALTY? Jagmeet Singh Calls India “Our Country Where We Live”

Jagmeet Singh says he wants to lead Canada. So why is he calling India his “country?”

It goes without saying that Canadians expect loyalty from our leaders.

And particularly, that loyalty must be based upon the foundation of being Canadian above all else.

Divided loyalties, particularly loyalties to extremist causes and foreign countries are unacceptable, especially in somebody who wants to be the top leader in Canada.

That’s why Jagmeet Singh’s comments at a Sikh-separatist rally in San Francisco are so disturbing.

At a rally – which venerated a violent extremist – Singh said “Why do we talk about genocide, what happened to us? We are talking about it because, in our country where we live, that country intentionally tried to wipe us out, that in that country it was a planned process to attack the Golden Temple.”

While Singh’s attendance at the rally and support of the Khalistani cause is already disturbing enough, his use of the term “our country where we live” when speaking about India is a huge problem.

If Singh sees India as his country, why does he want to lead Canada? Note, he didn’t say he is both Indian and Canadian, he called only India his “country.”

Also, while it could be understandable for someone born in India to call India their country – due to a connection to their birthplace – Singh was born in Canada – yet still called India his country.

Not good.

We can’t have somebody who speaks at events venerating extremists and seeking to break up another country.

Singh – like any leader – is supposed to be loyal to Canada above all else. If Singh can’t do that, then no Canadian can trust him in a position of leadership.

It’s far too big a risk to allow Singh to gain power.

Who in their right mind would vote for this loser. He was elected, and has still not been part of the Government sitting in Parliament for quite a long time? He doesn’t even consider himself a Canadian and says that India is his country?? The NDP should give him the boot and elect a much more suitable and deserving candidate to lead their party!!


We’re the first post-national state according to our PM so anything goes. We are all global citizens. I looked at the Ontario history curriculum and this sort of “global citizen” indoctrination is actually in there in black and white. Dougie should do more than repeal and review the sex-ed curriculum if he really cares about this country. Might want to throw a logic course in there too.

The NDP are victims of their own political correctness. They elected a Leader based on a turban and the fact he wasn’t white,rather than based on any accomplishments in his life. It’s quite obvious Jagmeet Singh belongs to that faction in the Sikh community which supports the Khalistan movement,a faction that approves of terrorism against India. They are no better than the faction in the Muslim community that approves of jihadis and sharia law. The NDP should reconsider this guy as Leader at their next convention and get rid of him. Singh will lead the NDP to the lowest number… Read more »

Jagmeet Singh does not have once chance to lead Canada.

Because of this Punjabi I will never vote NDP. The NDP membership has made a huge mistake electing him as their leader and unless they change that their popularity will drop like a tombstone dropped in the ocean. There is an M.P that says he doesn,t want to be the leader but he has more smarts in one little finger than Jagmeet has in his total body. I speak of the northern B.C. M.P Nathan Cullen. Get with it NDP Cullen is another Jack Layton.
