Jagmeet Singh appeared on Global TV and he was asked about candidate recruitment. Pointing out the fact they have only nominated 42 candidates, out of 338, which is about 12%. Coupled with 12 incumbent NDP MPs not re-offering, and asked if that is any reflection on his leadership. Jagmeet Singh replied
"I'm not concerned about that. I'm really excited about the new candidates coming forward. The Liberal government got a lot of questions to answer when two of their senior ministers "resigned" because they didn't trust or have faith in the decisions of their Prime Minister. That is a blow to the leadership of Mr. Trudeau.
In my case I've got strong candidates that are, coming continuing to work. We've got strong MPs that will continue to help with legacy of new candidates coming forward. We've got a lot of excitement around the new folks that are going to represent ridings"
