first_imgTORONTO – Federal New Democratic Party Leader Jagmeet Singh pulled back the curtain on his closely guarded private life, letting Canadians know Tuesday night that he is engaged.Singh, 38, proposed to girlfriend Gurkiran Kaur, 27, at a private party Tuesday night just blocks away from the Ontario legislature in Toronto where he served as a provincial legislator for six years.Singh surprised Kaur, an entrepreneur and fashion designer, with the proposal in front of several dozen friends and family members at a vegetarian restaurant where they had their first date.Singh was elected federal NDP leader last fall and had been guarded about his personal life, but social media posts in December made headlines after it was reported he and Kaur were engaged.The couple shot down the rumours, saying it was instead a “rokha” — a traditional Punjabi ceremony held ahead of a wedding and usually attended by close family.Until December, Singh had declined to confirm or deny that he was in a relationship.Along with friends and family, Singh invited several members of the media, including The Canadian Press, to witness the surprise proposal Tuesday night.Friends cheered as Singh and Kaur arrived. Singh pulled a ring out of his jacket pocket and got down on one knee to propose to Kaur, who accepted.A few moments later, the couple waded into the crowd and Kaur shouted, raising one hand in the air, “Every one, I’m engaged!”Asked why he decided to make this news public and what he wants Canadians to know about it, Singh said he was excited about the engagement.“I’m super excited to take this step forward — to have a life and future together with my partner,” he said.last_img read more

Jepsen will perform at the Commodore Ballroom on Aug. 28 and 29. (Photo: Rich Fury/Getty Images ~ RICH FURY / PNG) Tickets and info: From $112 at ticketmaster.caCarly Rae Jepsen can’t ever escape Call Me Maybe. Why would she want to? Most musicians will never see a song take top spot on singles charts in 47 countries and sell over 20 million copies. Her 2012 tune co-written with guitarist Tavish Crowe and produced by Josh Ramsay did all that.That all but guarantees Jepsen is known as a one-hit wonder. But the tag is both unfair and inaccurate when discussing the Mission singer’s career.“Look, it definitely was somewhat paralyzing at first to know what to do after a song like that,” said Jepsen. “But Tavish, my guitarist, said it best when he said it gave me the chance to show what he knew I could do and you can’t be anything but thankful for that. As things continue, I get to keep on working toward what I want to give to pop music and, to date, Dedicated is the best thing I’ve done in my mind.”last_img read more
