Will NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh be a factor in the federal election? It sure doesn’t seem like it right now. Polls have Singh as a poor third finisher and everybody seems to have counted him out already. Sound familiar?

This is where Justin Trudeau saw himself at the beginning of the 2015 election.

Anthony Furey says the upcoming debate this week can be a turning point for Jagmeet Singh.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
