Windsor West MP Brian Masse Endorses Jagmeet Singh For NDP Leadership

Windsor West MP Brian Masse has picked his person to lead the party.

Masse has announced he is endorsing Jagmeet Singh's bid to become leader of the New Democratic Party.

Masse says Jagmeet offers new energy and a new style of leadership for the party.

"He's inclusive — and I think that's the number one aspect that I saw as well as an excellent listener; really valued not only his time in Windsor, but also other parts of Canada to see the strength of trusting people he's with and trusting this country to make strong decisions from a people-perspective," says Masse.

Meantime, Singh was grateful for the support from the longtime New Democract.

"I'm so grateful to have the support of Brian Masse, who has done an outstanding job of representing my hometown of Windsor in Parliament for the last 15 years," says Singh.

There are three other candidates vying for the pos: Charlie Angus, Niki Ashton and Guy Caron.

The new leader will replace Tom Mulcair.
