THUNDER BAY – Federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is expected to pay a pre-election visit to Thunder Bay on Tuesday.

A source has confirmed with that Singh will be in the city and plans to visit the local Bombardier plant and host a meet-and-greet early Tuesday evening at the Da Vinci Centre.

The party has yet to issue an itinerary for Singh, who also visited Thunder Bay last year.

Earlier this month Singh expressed support for Bombardier workers, after the company announced it could lay off as many as 550 employees as transit contracts run out this year.

“Bombardier workers in Thunder Bay want to see action – instead of Trudeau Liberals blaming Ford Conservatives & vice versa. This doesn't help people,” Singh tweeted on July 10.

“The NDP has a plan to invest heavily in transit, not only to fight climate change but to create & protect jobs here in Canada.”
