Protesters harass federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh during visit to Peterborough, Ont.
CA, 13 May 2022
Federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh said Tuesday’s visit to Peterborough, Ont., marred by aggressive protesters, was one of the “most intense, threatening, insulting” experiences in his political career.
Singh’s comments came Wednesday during a media conference when asked about his visit to the campaign office of provincial NDP candidate Jen Deck, which he described as an “incredible event.”
However, Singh noted that while entering and exiting the office on George Street, he received “some negativity.”
Social media videos show protesters approaching him, yelling vulgarities, repeatedly calling him a “liar” and a “traitor” and “not welcome” as he got into a vehicle parked in front of Deck’s office. The protesters had gathered outside the office for about an hour while Singh was talking to supporters inside.
