Jagmeet Singh Life

Jagmeet Singh, a.k.a. Jagmeet Singh, was born January 2, 1979, and is active in the New Democratic Party, as well as as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Burnaby South's riding.

He served as a member of the Ontario New Democratic Party (MPP) for Bramalea—Malton in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from 2011 to 2017.Singh began his career as a criminal defence advocate for various law companies.

He began his political career in 2011 after running in the federal riding of Bramalea—Gore—Malton, which resulted in a narrow victory for Conservative opponent Bal Gosal; later that year, he became MPP in the overlapping provincial elections.

He became deputy leader of the Ontario New Democratic Party in 2015, working under party leader Andrea Horwath until 2017.

Following a leadership investigation that resulted in a leadership race to replace Tom Mulcair, Singh declared his candidacy for the federal New Democratic Party leadership.

Singh was elected chief on October 1, 2017 in a field of four candidates, with a first-round vote of 58%.

In the 2019 federal election, the New Democrats under Singh gained 24 seats and moved from third party to fourth party status. Singh became the first member of a visible minority group to lead a major Canadian federal political party on a permanent basis, and the second after Bloc Québécois' former interim leader Vivian Barbot.

Singh is also the first turban-wearing Sikh to serve as a provincial legislator in Ontario.

He has been praised in Canadian media for his fashion and style sense.

Singh identifies himself as both a progressive and a social democratic democrat on ideological terms.

He advocates for increasing the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour, criminalizing all drug use, and he opposes cutting many tax deductions available to the highest-income earners.

Early life and education (1979–2006)

Singh was born in Scarborough, Ontario, on January 2, 1979, to Indian parents Harmeet Kaur and Jagtaran Singh. His mother is from Ghudani Khurd, Punjab, India, but his father is from Thikriwala, Punjab, India. Sewa Singh Thikriwala, a social activist who campaigned for India's independence, was his great-grandfather. Hira Singh, another great-grandfather who served in World War I and World War II in the British Indian Army's Sikh Regiment. Singh spent his early childhood in St. John's and Grand Falls-Windsor, both in Newfoundland and Labrador, before relocating with his family to Windsor, Ontario. Singh has discussed sexual abuse as a youth with a martial arts instructor, as well as having a father who suffered with alcoholism.

Singh went from grade 6 to 12 in Beverly Hills, Michigan. He went on to obtain a B.Sc degree. In 2001, Osgoode Hall Law School at York University conferred a degree in biology and earned a Bachelor of Laws degree. In 2006, he was admitted to the bar of Ontario.

Singh has two younger siblings, brother Gurratan, and sister Manjot, who were both born in Newfoundland during the family's time. Gurratan Singh was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in 2018, representing the riding of Brampton East.


Jagmeet Singh Career

Early career (2006–2011)

Singh practiced as a criminal defense advocate in the Greater Toronto area before entering politics, first at the law firm Pinkofskys and later in Singh Law, which he created with Gurratan. Singh said in a Toronto Star article published on January 9, 2012 that his experience in criminal defense aided him in his decision to enter politics, particularly his work promoting the protection of rights embedded in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Singh provided pro bono assistance to an advocacy group that protested the visit to Canada of Kamal Nath, the Indian trade minister who had reportedly led armed groups during the 1984 Delhi pogrom. Singh was inspired by the advocacy group after struggling to get their views heard so that their fears could be better represented.

Singh began his political career by opting for him as the NDP nominee in the riding of Bramalea—Gore—Malton, 2011. Singh dropped Dhaliwal (which is linked to caste) during the election because he wanted to express his opposition to the Indian caste system's inequalities. Rather, he used the more common Singh. Despite being defeated by Conservative candidate Bal Gosal by 539 votes, Singh finished ahead of incumbent Liberal MP Gurbax Singh Malhi.
