OTTAWA — Maxime Bernier has debuted the People’s Party of Canada, the federal political party the former Tory MP is leading, with a promise to put “Canadian people first.”
Bernier—who is keeping his seat in the House of Commons— launched his new party, party logo, and headquarters in Gatineau, Que. In French the party is called “Parti Populaire,” and the acronym is PPC.
“Why this name? Because it is time that the government put Canadian people first when they make decisions and policies. It is time to put the power back into people’s hands,” Bernier told reporters at the National Press Theatre in Ottawa Friday morning.
