Am I the only one who thinks that the narrative we've been hearing about @theJagmeetSingh might be completely wrong?

I've been watching some of the events the @NDP's streamed out of #BurnabySouth. He's more passionate and articulate than I knew. Also, formidable. 1/

I know this runs counter to the group-consensus of almost every political analyst or pundit in the country. But there is a reason why @theJagmeetSingh went from 3rd in the polls to a comfortable lead within just a couple weeks of the #BurnabySouth campaign beginning. 2/

As I watch @theJagmeetSingh in #BurnabySouth, and watch the #SNCLavalin scandal in Ottawa, I can't help but wish he'd been in Parliament during this last month.

I don't just mean because he's the party leader (though that would be nice). I mean that... 3/

Of all the Canadian politicians I've seen speak, I think @theJagmeetSingh would be the best able to tear into the @liberal_party over the #SNCLavalinGATE.

I say this with no disrespect to @nathancullen, @CharlieAngusNDP or @GuyCaronNPD for the work they've done. 4/

The senior @NDP MPs have done a remarkable job holding this government to account.

But I don't know that there's a politician in this country who I'd prefer to have questioning @JustinTrudeau than @theJagmeetSingh.

After watching his performance in #BurnabySouth 5/

I can absolutely see why @JustinTrudeau was scared to call the #BurnabySouth by-election sooner. He was afraid of @theJagmeetSingh in Parliament

And, frankly, that decision has paid off. Their, possibly, most formidable critic hasn't had the chance to ask questions. 6/

But free rides don't last forever. And I think @JustinTrudeau and the @liberal_party are about to see how formidable @theJagmeetSingh truly is.

Analysis, punditry and narrative to the contrary, be damned. 7/7
