The new federal NDP leader says he will show his hair again, but he wants to decide when he can do it and in an interesting way.
Jagmeet Singh is the first non-caucasian leader of a federal party and as a Sikh, is known for his brightly coloured turbans.
Singh told reporters in Quebec yesterday, he’s sometimes asked what’s under his Sikh religious headwear, and he says his answer is “a lot of hair!”
Singh actually revealed his hair on TV’s Rick Mercer Show before running for leader of the federal NDP. Watch the segment here.
On Tuesday, Singh ended his hair talk with a sort of challenge to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, joking, “people have talked about someone else’s hair, but I have more hair. It’s longer and nicer!”
