According to a major survey, nearly two-thirds of Canadians have no problem voting for a national party led by a Sikh. The people of Canada are now opening up in accepting a leader from Sikh background to become the Prime Minister and occupy the official residence at 24 Sussex Drive in Ottawa.
Only half of the Canadians were polled. While 63 % of the respondents in the poll would support a Sikh leading a party into federal elections, that number drops to 56% when it comes to a Sikh who visibly professes the faith, in terms of donning the turban. But people do believe that some person from minority would become the Prime Minister in next 25 years.Singh has been manifested as a plausible leader of the NDP, potentially leading the party into the 2019 national polls. However, the Younger Canadians display higher willingness in embracing the change. Eventually, the nature of his candidacy and the substance of his campaign, rather than his faith, will play a decisive role in determining his political fate.
