Have issues with Singh as leader? Here's the questions you have to answer:

If Jagmeet were to stand down as leader, it would likely take at least nine months, maybe a year, to have a new leadership contest.

That would leave a new leader with maybe a year to make an impression before the election.

1) Are Jagmeet's early problems as leader bad enough, in your view, to cost the party that much general election prep time?

2) Is there any possible replacement for Jagmeet that would be able, in THAT short a period of time, to unite the party and help it find a set of practical and radical policies that would appeal to the electorate?
