“Love and courage.”
This is Jagmeet Singh, an Ontario politician currently running to be leader of the federal NDP.
He's known as the first turban-wearing Sikh man to sit as an MPP in Ontario. He's also no stranger to racism.

Singh held a meet and greet event in Brampton, Ontario, on Wednesday as part of his campaign. And things got real awkward.
He’d barely said hello when a woman stood up and started grilling the candidate.
As Singh tried to do a mic check, the woman launched into a rant accusing Singh of being “in bed with Sharia” and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Just to repeat: Singh is Sikh, not Muslim.
The woman, who identified herself as Jennifer, carried on as Singh’s handlers tried to get her to move on. She told them not to touch her or she’d call the police.
