A Sikh MPP of Ontario Jagmeet Singh is currently in Taiwan representing the Ontario Legislative Assembly. Jagmeet Singh is one of the rising stars of the Sikh community in the world stage. He was re-elected as MPP of the Bramalea—Gore—Malton region of the Ontario Parliament last year with a wide margin.
Recently, he was denied a visa to India because of speaking out on human rights violations of India inside the Ontario Parliament.
Jagmeet is being well respected in Taiwan, he said, “I was made unofficial speaker of the Taiwanese city council for the day” which is quite an honor.
After the Taiwanese government heard that Jagmeet is a big fan of cycling, they organized a tour of “Taipei Cycle”, one of Asia’s largest bicycle conventions later in the week.
Jagmeet will be in Taiwan for the whole week with fellow MPPs from the Ontario Legislative Assembly. He described his visit as, “trip has been incredible so far!”
He also stated, “We’ve met with city councillors, ministry officials and policy developers. We’ve learned about Taiwan’s amazing island wide transit system and commitment to human rights.”
Here are some pictures from his trip:
