Jagmeet Singh on COVID Bill Deal, Conditional Throne Speech Support

Speaking with reporters in Ottawa, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh offers conditional support for the speech from the throne after his party reached an agreement with the Liberals concerning sick-leave provisions in Bill C-2, the proposed legislation to implement three new COVID-19 aid benefits. The Liberal minority government requires the support of at least one opposition party to pass legislation in the House of Commons. (September 25, 2020) (no interpretation)
