Singh swarmed by cheering students at Ryerson University day after debate

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh got a rock-star reception at Toronto’s Ryerson University , with many students approaching him to say he did well in Monday night's English-language leaders' debate.

As soon as Singh stepped off the bright orange NDP bus, the shoppers waiting outside a downtown Toronto shop pulled out their cell phones and started taking pictures.

It was that early flow of tweets, Instagram posts and even a few FaceTime calls that formed a large crowd around Singh at Ryerson University’s downtown campus. The students CTV News talked to found out Singh was on campus through social media posts.

Singh’s visit to Ryerson University was planned by campaign staff, but the students who came out didn’t know in advance about the “mainstreeting” event. In fact, the leader was supposed to walk around campus and meet people as he went but the student mob was so big he didn’t move more than a block in his nearly two hours on campus.

Young people represent a major voting block and Singh, like the other leaders, is trying to tap into that power. In 2015, 58.3 per cent of newly eligible voters turned out, an increase of roughly 17 per cent from the 2011 general election. According to Elections Canada, the greatest change was among voters aged 18-24. Turnout in that age category increased 18.3 per cent.

Last week, Singh visited Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ont., for an event that was at capacity. Campaign insiders say they were extremely happy with the turnout that saw students turned away from the event waiting outside to meet Singh.

“That’s so cool,” said one man who had just met Singh. “He’s the second biggest leader I’ve ever met after Doug Ford, and Rob Ford.”

Whether these young voters who came out Tuesday take their support to the polls is the big question. The other question is whether the event was a one-off or whether post-debate momentum is starting to morph into an orange wave.

COMMENTARY: Singh scores win with ‘sentiment’ jump on Twitter during debate, Ipsos saysCOMMENTARY: NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh gained the most virtual ground during the debate Monday night, according to Ipsos’ sentiment reader, writes Gregory Jack. cdnpoli elxn43 canadadebates2019 Rumour has it, when Trudeau was a school teacher, he had a Fling with a 17yr old Student. Stay tuned !! JustinTrudeau He didn't gain anything but a stupid look on his face. The circus is in town...🤫🤔 what clown will be wrong to be our PM....😳

CanadaDebates2019 Contrast with AndrewScheer who is afraid of students. 'Scheer was scheduled to visit a cafe on campus of the University of Waterloo...but a last-minute change of plans 'forced' him to skip it ... in favour of a local hot dog spot just 600 metres away'

Shocking that the leftists at Ryerson dawn over Singh, absolutely shocking! Swarmed by cheering Ryerson communists

‘Your ideas are hurtful to Canada’: Singh tells Bernier he shouldn’t be at the leaders’ debates'You don’t deserve a platform and I’m happy to challenge you on that, because your ideas are hurtful to Canada,” Singh told Bernier during the English-language leaders' debate. CanadaDebates2019 cdnpoli elxn43 How about Trudeau being racist towards ur skin color brother. No objections there eh. Purely personal opinion. Free speech is under attack. Mr. Singh shouldn't have a platform either his ideas are hurtful to Canadians as well. How would you like to be singled out as 'wealthy' and be taxed more because of your own hard work? Hurtful and hypocritical. What specifically is harmful about his views? I am genuinely curious. I can understand why people might disagree with his ideas. But I don't get what's so harmful.
