Let’s be clear proper off the highest: the wrongheaded submit by the Liberal candidate within the Burnaby South byelection was a silly political transfer.

The Liberal candidate, Karen Wang, who’s of Asian descent, inspired her Asian neighborhood to reject NDP candidate Jagmeet Singh due to his ethnic heritage.


Not a intelligent transfer, since Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been banging the drum about ethnic and spiritual inclusion in a 21st century Canada.

So, the disgraced Liberal candidate dropped out of the race, which seemingly creates a transparent path to victory for Jagmeet Singh.

In a weird method, that would truly profit the Liberals within the upcoming federal election in October.

Singh has been underwhelming as NDP chief and a weak NDP often implies that left-of-centre voters would shun the NDP and vote Liberal.
