Singh finds himself in ‘a really tough situation’: Libby Davies

The former deputy leader of the federal New Democratic Party says Jagmeet Singh has had to choose his words very carefully over the past several weeks as accusations of sexual harassment have swirled around two members of his caucus. “I think it’s a really tough situation for any leader,” said ex-MP Libby Davies, who served in the House of Commons from 1997 to 2015 and also acted as the party’s House leader. “When (accusations of harassment) become public, it’s very public. And suddenly the spotlight is on, and words become very important and how you follow up, what kind of process there is.”
