NDP Leader, Jagmeet Singh, was left embarrassed when approached by a member of the public who asked why women should not be able to choose what goes into their bodies.
Katrina Panova posted the video to her Twitter feed, showing her conversation with Singh.
“Why don’t you support a woman’s right to choose what goes into her body?”, she asked.
“Like, a woman’s right to choose? I support,” responded Singh.

Panova quickly clarified that she was not talking about abortion – an issue predominantly associated with the slogan “my body, my choice” – but referring to women having the right to choose whether to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Singh, taken aback, did not have a direct answer.
“Well, I just think it’s important to get vaccinated,” responded Singh.
Not willing to accept Singh’s non-answers, Panova pushed back, requesting a more clear answer.
“I understand that,” she said. “But what about informed consent and choice when it comes to medical choices for a person with bodily autonomy?”
Within two seconds of finishing this question, Singh’s campaign aide interjected, stating that they had to go. Singh was all too happy to remove himself from the conversation and walk away.
Yet another example of Singh towing the woke-line of politics, but having no clue how to back up his arguments.
Singh has been vocally supportive of mandatory vaccines across Canada, but cannot answer the simple question posed by this member of the public. If it’s acceptable to effectively force people to vaccinate against COVID-19, how can one be supportive of “my body, my choice”? It is completely contrary to back mandatory vaccines yet state support for a persons right to choose what happens to their body.
Conservative parties need to call out this blatant hypocrisy from the left and unmask it for what it really is: authoritarianism disguised as virtue signaling.
