Singh says violent messages, death threats directed at Bloc MP don’t help to fight systemic racism


NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh said violent messages and death threats that target members of Parliament are not helpful tactics in the battle against systemic racism in Canada. Singh made the remarks after Bloc Québécois MP Alain Therrien told a parliamentary committee Tuesday that he has been the target of tens of thousands of hateful emails, social media posts and death threats since Singh called him racist in the House of Commons. Therrien said he also has had to seek police protection. Today, Singh said that the only way to eliminate systemic racism from the RCMP is to put pressure on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberal government.
