Gurkiran Kaur Sidhu Shares What She Thinks The Biggest Issue For Young Voters Is

Gurkiran Kaur Sidhu, 31-year-old fashion designer, entrepreneur and wife of NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, told Narcity what she thinks the biggest issue is for young voters today.

Sidhu has been campaigning alongside Singh across the country for the upcoming Canadian federal election which will take place on September 20, 2021.

What do you think the biggest issue for young voters is right now?

“There was a time when I was one of the young voters. Young voters, I’m going to say hundred per cent climate change. And I think that is one of my biggest things as well,” Sidhu told Narcity.

“It’s just, it’s so scary when you’re reading about how our icebergs are slowly turning into– like their melting away or how even just this summer how crazy the wildfires have been. Not just in the west coast and it’s just so sad and heartbreaking.”

“Not just in the west coast like in BC, but even in Ontario, we’ve had so many wildfires, and that is absolutely nuts to me like the craziness of the heat and even the heat waves we’ve been experiencing over the last month.”

“And I think that is such an eye-opener to just how scary it is and it’s just like there was a point where we probably could have turned it around right away, but now we actually have to put in the work if we’re trying to make you know like make our world a better place.”

“So one hundred per cent, I think it would have to be climate change.”

If there is one thing you could say to undecided voters what would you say to them?

“Oh, anything I could say to voters? It would be that you, how do I say this? I know exactly what I want to say I just have to say the right words.”

“It’s, ok, there’s a lot that has been happening in the last couple years, especially with the pandemic, and there is so much to think about. There the future, the climate change, you know whatever resonates with you, and I just think the biggest thing is just, please go out and vote.”

“So there’s going to be – there’s always issues, and I feel like […] that politics is all the same and that, you know, nothing is ever going to change and I can not express to you enough if you want the change you have to vote.”

“There’s lots happening if you want to help make the change that you want, I would say just at the very least, please just go out and vote. That is literally your voice changing or impacting politics, so just vote!”
