A national child-care program would be a boon to Canada’s post-COVID recovery — none more so than Ontario’s

Missed Jagmeet Singh And AOC’s ‘Among Us’ Stream? Here Are The 5 Best Moments
Federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh teamed up with U.S. congressperson Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Friday night for a three-hour video stream of the popular game “Among Us” on Twitch with a rotating cast of several high-profile streamers.Through the stream’s voice chat, Ocasio-Cortez and Singh talked politics in their respective countries, answered questions from the streamers and even virtually murdered each other once or twice. Nearly 100,000 viewers tuned into Ocasio-Cortez’s stream at one point, with close to 30,000 watching Singh’s stream of the event at its peak. Playing Among Us with @theJagmeetSingh, @aoc, @NorthernlionLP, @Jack_Septic_Eye, @xQc, @theserfstv, @DisguisedToast, @ContraPoints, @TSM_Myth and some other folks as well! Get in now! https://t.co/APFxFjroen— hasanabi (@hasanthehun) November 27, 2020For the uninitiated, “Among Us” is a video game based on popular party games like “Mafia” and “Werewolf” where players work together to determine who the “imposter” is, as that imposter tries to kill off the other players.While Singh said he did several “dry runs” of the game in preparation this week, it still took him some time to grasp the basic mechanics, from not killing people in plain sight, to how to do the in-game tasks. Lying — a key component of the game — didn’t come as easily to Singh, with several of the streamers describing him as a “wholesome liar.” Watching chat hopelessly yell at Jagmeet Singh to do shields properly— Spence (@MagicianMarner) November 28, 2020The whole thing is available to watch up on Singh’s Twitch channel, but here are five highlights if you missed the Friday-night stream.AOC and Jagmeet bond right off the batThe stream marked the first meeting — even if virtual — between Singh and Ocasio-Cortez. The two immediately developed a casual rapport, with Ocasio-Cortez even asking Singh to call her “Alex,” since that’s what her friends call her.She said Singh first came across her radar due to his viral response to racist comments made during a town hall. “I think what the way I was first kind of exposed to your work was when you had this super viral moment when you encountered this woman who was being super racist at a town hall,” she said. Ocasio-Cortez praised Singh’s “compassionate” handling of the encounter, calling it a “model moment.”And that kinship extended into the game. Throughout the stream, Singh approached Ocasio-Cortez as an ally. “It’s the progressive politicians united, we’re not about killing people, we’re about making life better for people,” Singh said early on.Ocasio-Cortez echoed the sentiment: “Yeah. We’re pacifists.” Even when Singh killed another player right in Ocasio-Cortez’s view, she was hesitant to doubt her fellow leftist politician — even though he was, in fact, the killer. The two also bonded over why the fictional spaceship the game is set on still uses fossil fuels.  Jagmeet Singh AOC
