NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh said today his party would not support a Conservative government led by Andrew Scheer in a minority Parliament scenario after October's federal election.

The statement by Singh on Thursday came after the Liberals circulated a video of the Conservative leader speaking out against same-sex marriage during a debate in the House of Commons nearly 15 years ago.

"The resurfacing of Andrew Scheer's disgusting prejudice against LGBTQI2S+ people and families is very painful for many Canadians," Singh said in his statement.
