The People’s Party of Canada held its first National Conference last weekend (August 16-18) at the Hilton Lac Leamy Hotel & Casino in Gatineau, Quebec. Over 500 people including PPC candidates, EDA officials and campaign managers attended the 2019 National Conference of the People’s Party of Canada, the fastest growing political party in Canadian history. Established less than one year ago, the PPC already has over 40,000 members, and with an impressive number of 312 candidates for the next federal elections, the PPC is the second largest Canadian party in number of candidates.
During his closing speech at the conference to a crowd of hundreds flag-waving, cheering candidates and supporters, Maxime Bernier – leader of the People’s Party of Canada said that not inviting him to take part in the official election debates means excluding the only political party leader who has anything different to say.
“It won’t be a real debate if I’m not there. It will be a phoney discussion where they attack each other on their superficial differences.” Mr. Bernier said.
