Donald Trump has made history. He is the only president in American history to be impeached twice. His incitement of supporters to launch a deadly insurrection at the United States Capitol building was a shocking and horrific act. The world is better with him on his way of out of power, whatever the deep limitations of Joe Biden.
Canadians have surely watched these events from a distance with sadness and dismay. But there was one major Canadian party leader who took a stand in favour of Trump’s impeachment in 2019: NDP leader Jagmeet Singh. Despite criticisms from Liberals and Conservatives that it was inappropriate for a Canadian politician to question a president’s legitimacy—or that such actions endangered the Canadian economy—Singh has been proven unequivocally correct by the passage of recent history.
