It’s safe to say that Jagmeet Singh was really excited to win Monday’s byelection.
The NDP leader won the riding in Burnaby South and earned himself a seat in parliament.
Jagmeet Singh Celebrates
Singh didn’t just have any old celebration, no, he danced to Soulja Boy and rapped to Post Malone.

Singh has gone 16 months without a seat in the House of Commons. Singh was up against Liberal Richard T. Lee and Conservative Jay Shin.
Singh won with 8,884 votes, nearly 3,000 votes ahead of his opponents.
Thank you #BurnabySouth! I’m determined & ready to fight for the help people need – from the housing crisis to health care not covering everyone the way it should, Canadians deserve better. This isn’t the end of a campaign – it’s the beginning of one.
See you in Parliament. pic.twitter.com/x8Q1SyHcEU
