There is no reason to dissolve the 44th Parliament and seek a mandate from voters on alleged subterfuge by Chinese agents, New Democrat leader Jagmeet Singh yesterday told reporters. Singh said he was disappointed former governor general David Johnston would not endorse the Party’s March 2nd call for a public inquiry.
“I disagree with the finding,” said Singh. “I think Mr. Johnston was wrong here. I respect his work but I think he’s wrong not to declare a public inquiry.”
“The Prime Minister can do that,” said Singh. “I will also let the Prime Minister know we’ve got tools and we’re going to use all those tools at our disposal to continue to push for a public inquiry.”
“Is one of those tools triggering an election?” asked a reporter. “That’s not a decision we’re making today,” replied Singh.
