A Canadian voter in Quebec advised New Democratic Party leader Jagmeet Singh to cut off his turban to look like a Canadian on Wednesday. The video of the incident has gone viral on social media.
However, the Sikh leader who is Prime Ministerial candidate replied very calmly. He said, “Canada looks like all sorts of people. That is the beauty of Canada.”
The man further said, “In Rome, you do as Romans do.” Well, the Sikh leader again had an answer to it. “This is Canada, you can do like… whatever you like,” Singh said.
Before Singh left, the voter told him, “Alright, take care. I hope you win.”

Jagmeet Singh later responded to the incident and reportedly said, “Many Canadians are told that we must change who we are to succeed. My message to you: Do not change who you are. Everyone deserves his place.”
Jagmeet Singh Jimmy Dhaliwal (officially known as Jagmeet Singh) is the first non-white leader of a major political party- New Democratic Party.
