NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh once again maintained his cool and dignity as he confronted yet another racist loser who suggested that he “should cut off his turban” to “look like a Canadian.”

CBC reported that the man confronted Singh while he was campaigning in Montreal. He shook hands with Singh and then told Singh in English: “You know what? You should cut your turban off. You’ll look like a Canadian.”

Singh retorted: “Oh, I think Canadians look like all sorts of people. That’s the beauty of Canada.”

The man said: “Yeah, but…” and Singh cut him off, saying: “That’s okay, I don’t agree, sir.”

But the man persisted: “In Rome, you do as the Romans do,” and Singh countered, “Hey, but this is Canada, you can do whatever you like,” and walked away.

CBC reported that the man then said: “All right, take care, eh? I hope you win.”

Quebec’s Bill 21 seeks to prevent public employees from wearing religious symbols – including a turban – on the job.
