Then on Monday, Sept. 11, national leadership candidate, Jagmeet Singh will host an event in Penticton at Craft Corner Kitchen from 4:30 to 6 p.m. This is a free, public event that will give locals a chance to share issues that matter to them and hear about Singh’s vision for all of Canada.

“We are proud to plan events that provide opportunities to start productive dialogues and actively progress issues that need attention in our community” said Tina Lee, president of the Penticton NDP Constituency Association in a press release. “As a community, we like to be involved in political processes and decision making and we’re going to create as many spaces for that as possible.”
