Okay, I'm confused. The Chinese gal was running against the Indian gal for leader of the New Democrat Party against(?) Trudeau. And when the shiite hit the fan and before she lost the election, the Chinese gal was asking forgiveness from Trudeau for her "racist" faux pas?
This was a special election to fill a vacant seat. Jasmeet Singh (male btw) had been earlier elected as the new leader of the farther left New Democratic Party but he didn’t have a seat so to be more effective he needed to get elected so when this election came up he decided to run for it. The usual national parties run candidates in all seats even when the odds are against them. Wang was the first choice to run for the ruling Liberal party of which Trudeau was the leader and current PM. So Wang was trying to pull a big upset and win against a newly elected NDP leader by denying him a potential seat in Parliament. When Wang was replaced the expected result of Singh winning happened.
