Meet the PPC: Maxime Bernier says new party will be called The People’s Party of Canada

OTTAWA — Quebec MP Maxime Bernier is naming his new political
venture The People’s Party of Canada.

Bernier says the name– which will be PPC for short — fits a
party that represents people who are tired of Canadian politics
being hijacked by special interest groups, cartels and

The maverick MP quit his party last month after spending much
of the year butting heads with Conservative Leader Andrew
Scheer over supply management and says the new party will be
registered with Elections Canada over the next several weeks.

He says he has raised $140,000 thus far and that thousands of
people have reached out to him to get involved.

Bernier says his party will have a candidate on the ballot in
every federal riding by the election next fall.

Conservatives are livid at Bernier’s power play arguing adding
another party on the right side of the political spectrum will
split the vote and allow the Liberals to easily win another
majority government.
