Jagmeet Singh Just Got Endorsed By Bernie Sanders With Days Left Until The Election

The 2021 federal election is almost upon us, and Jagmeet Singh just received an endorsement from a well-known politician south of the border.

On Friday, September 17, Sen. Bernie Sanders tweeted out his support for the NDP leader and his party. "There's one party that stood up for working people in the pandemic," he wrote.

"One leader who has the courage to make the wealthy pay their fair share so everyone gets the medication they need. That's why I support the NDP and Jagmeet Singh."

This is the first shoutout Singh has received from a major U.S. politician, but Justin Trudeau has gotten a few in the days leading up to September 20.

Former first lady Hillary Clinton tweeted out her support for the prime minister on Friday, September 17. "I have seen my friend Justin Trudeau show leadership in the fight for accessible child care, protected reproductive rights, and ambitious climate action," she wrote.

On Thursday, September 16, Former U.S. President Barack Obama also showed the PM some love by wishing him the best in the upcoming election.

The Canadian federal election was officially called as a minority victory for Justin Trudeau over two weeks ago, but one of the country's ridings has only just been formally decided.

The riding of Chateauguay-Lacolle near Montreal was finally called on Thursday, October 7, for the Liberals in a nail-biting finish that saw the winner decided by just 12 votes.
