Jagmeet Singh Gets Swarmed Outside Ryerson During A Surprise Walk Through Toronto (VIDEOS)

The day after the Leaders' Debate, NDP leader Jagmeet Singh made his way to Toronto. Singh arrived at a record label east of the city’s downtown core to talk about a new deal for Canada's millennials. According to CP24, the area where Singh is headed is also the part of Toronto where his party stands the best chance for acquiring new seats.

While making his way east, Singh decided to hit the streets of downtown Toronto, near Yonge and Dundas Square and the Ryerson University campus. The leader shook hands with a crowd of sneaker enthusiasts who were waiting in line for the new Travis Scott Air Jordan Basketball Shoes. CTV’S Annie Bergeron reported that the line responded positively to Singh's appearance.

The leader then stopped by Ryerson’s University downtown campus for an impromptu meeting with students. The NDP Representative was immediately swarmed by young people who took selfies with the politician and shook his hand.

The New Democratic Leader has been riding a high recently. Singh was widely praised for his part in Monday night leaders’ debate, and was recently followed on Instagram by both Drake and Rihanna. As if that wasn’t enough hype, Canadians are also taking to social media to contact the NDP leader, to let him know that he had earned their vote in October's upcoming federal election.

Singh has made a reputation as a smooth talker often dealing out hilarious one-liners and strong responses to difficult questions.  He’s even earned himself the title of the “king of shade-throwing.”

Singh isn’t the only federal election candidate in the GTA today. CBC reported that Conservative Andrew Scheer is also hosting his event in Markham and Mississauga, where his party is hoping to steal seats from Justin Trudeau’s Liberals.
