NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh emerged the ultimate loser from the past week’s political shenanigans in Ottawa. He was out-smarted and out-manoeuvered by the Liberals, leaving Canadians with even less confidence in a party that just five years ago served as the Official Opposition and government-in-waiting. This week, the Conservatives introduced a motion to create an anti-corruption committee to resume the investigation into Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his involvement in the WE Scandal. The shrewd and cunning Liberals then declared the motion a confident vote, meaning that if they lost, the government would fall and Canadians would go into another election just 12 months after the last one. Suddenly, the NDP found itself relevant and holding the balance of power in this minority government setting.
