Federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh was in Port Alberni this morning, speaking to a full auditorium of students at ADSS.
Singh said it’s the first time since being elected NDP leader that he’s had a chance to speak specifically to youth, and he was encouraged by the questions asked.
Singh came to ADSS at the invitation of the school’s Model U.N. Club, who moderated the event.
Singh answered questions about Kinder Morgan, Senate Reform, Proportional Representation, education funding and tuition fees during the hour-long event.
He now travels to Parksville and Nanaimo to complete his island tour before heading back to Ottawa.
