and 69% of canandians would be willing to vote him into office as Prime minister , your point?

Is there an actual poll on this? I'm not Canadian, so I don't know how racially and religiously divided the population is.

Interesting polls, though even in the positive polls, (even the ones which view him positively), it mentions that many Canadians are thinking the same thing I'm thinking, and that's on if everyone else will be allowing a Sikh P.M. also I'd hope most Canadians, (or anyone in a Democracy), wouldn't vote someone simply because of their religion or race, but rather the political views.

I don't know much about Canadian politics, but what exactly is the chance that he can win the Non-Sikh/Non-Punjabi vote?

Very low, and it's not due to him being Punjabi/Sikh, although he will have a different set of challenges to face with his identity. Most Canadians do not like the stance that NDP takes on issues, they border on socialism. Canadians either swing left, the Liberal Party - the incumbent party, or the right, the Conservative Party. 22/23 PMs of Canada have either been from the Liberal or Conservative party, with the exception coming from the Unionist party (now defunct and merged into the Conservative party lol) back in 1917. So based on this alone, him and his party have zero chance of getting into Parliament.

Then we have the ethnicity/religious hurdle, which most white Canadians are actually really accepting of, except for the odd extreme ones. However, it is his own people that are going to ignore him. Many Punjabi Sikhs will not vote him, simply for the reason that he's one of us, and we're all corrupt blah blah blah or that he's Khalistani and they don't agree with that notion. Canadian Hindus will not vote him because he's Khalistani. Muslims will not vote him because he's Sikh and Trudeau's the better option because he opened the gates to Syrian refugees and will continue to do so. Other Indian ethnicities just don't like Punjabis tbh, so really he doesn't have much support other than the Ontario Sikhs who align with him.

I'm not Canadian, and I'd personally love for Sikhs to have Khalistan, but where's the proof that Jagmeet Singh supports or supported Khalistan?

Any Sikh that sticks up for the rights of Sikhs is seen as a Khalistani by hindus.

What’s the matter with our kaum.. why our kids are lingering on getting married. I have couple of my friends who are in mid 30’s and still single. 🤷🏼‍♂️

maybe they are too much in the dating, non-grihast partners? or they are absorbed in making money.

I think @Ranjeet01 has given the best answer.

Other than that, he is the individual responsible for Ontario recognizing April as Sikh Heritage Month, something the Hindus still haven't been able to get a bill passed for (though they are trying lol). He is also lobbying for Canada to recognize what happened to us in 1984 as a genocide (which the Indian gov't loves to call riots instead). And just recently he defended Parmar (Air India 182), but he has a point, Parmar was never convicted, he was just accused without substantial proof. So all these things lead him to being painted as a Khalistani, which I see nothing wrong with myself either. But of course, Canadian Hindus don't like him for this, and some of our own don't either. 

Really what the Indian gov't and the Canadians that have Indian backgrounds want him to do is flaunt around his Indian heritage, but he rightfully doesn't. Instead he criticizes India, and that irks the Canadian Hindus the most. Anyways, Indians are labeling him all sort of things, yet his family's contribution to India has been greater than most of the individuals that are slandering him, his grandfather was Sewa Singh Thikriwala - a freedom fighter.

    • Ok lets reverse the relation , Daughter of some singh married into a Family of Hindu pandits ,but husband died , went to Pakistan and converted to islam.In that case would you have accepted her as Sikh?   The fact is she is daughter in law of Granthi so most probably she converted to Sikhism at the time of marriage.Now when she got widowed with three kids she had hardly any personal life left.Moreover I don't think his father  or Father in law thought of her re marriage.TBH there are hardly any sikh or Hindu men that marry a widow who is mother of three.So she may had found a Pakistani who was willing to accept her.Moreover she may had thought that she changed her religion for first marriage what's wrong if she did it for second time
    • Not sure on that, it's most likely out of our knowing until we merge with Waheguru.
