Jagmeet Singh is coming back to Halifax.

The federal NDP Leader is set to host a “Jagmeet-and-greet” at Dalhousie University’s Student Union Building on Thursday.

It’ll be the second time Singh, 39, has visited Nova Scotia’s capital city. He hosted a meet-and-greet event at an Agricola Street Bar in November 2017, shortly after he became the party’s leader.
