Canadians who oppose rising tyranny and authoritarian government need a voice. We will be that voice, Bernier told his supporters, gathered for election night in Saskatoon.
The head of PPCPeople’s Party of Canada chose to hold his rally there, according to him the health rules being too restrictive in Quebec, where the constituency he coveted is located.
The voters of Beauce have chosen to renew their confidence in Richard Lehoux, the Conservative candidate who has represented the riding since the departure of Mr. Bernier. According to preliminary results, the leader of the People’s Party came in second, with just under 20% of the vote.
At a time when the scenario of a Liberal minority government prevailed on Monday night, the People’s Party had failed to get any MPs elected. However, he had twice as many votes as the Green Party.
Never mind, according to the head of training, who believes that the fight will continue outside Parliament. Mr. Bernier considers his party to be the only
real opposition to Ottawa despite the absence of members elected to the Commons.
Encouraged by the number of votes collected by his party – 5.3% of the votes, around midnight – Maxime Bernier promised to be part of the next elections.
It’s an ideological revolution we’re starting right now, he launched to the crowd.
In just two years, our support has tripled. In the next election, which could come very soon, we will be better prepared, he said. This is just the beginning.
We will continue the fight for our freedoms outside Parliament, in the streets, to influence public opinion.
In 2019, the People’s Party, which was then making its federal debut, won 1.6% of the vote.
Maxime Bernier, former Conservative minister who represented Beauce in the Commons from 2006 to 2019, campaigned on the promise to defend the rights and freedoms of Canadians, which he said were undermined by the Trudeau government during the pandemic.
The head of PPCPeople’s Party of Canada is against the confinements, the vaccination passport and the
segregation of which, according to him, are the victims of Canadians who have chosen not to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Although he claims not to be an anti-vaccine, Bernier campaigned by failing to mention certain information on the coronavirus vaccination.
Balancing the budget, increasing the purchasing power of Canadians and controlling
mass immigration are also files on which the head of PPCPeople’s Party of Canada says he wants to insist on the next elections, where he is convinced of
gain seats in parliament.
