Maxime Bernier blames billboard woes on 'totalitarian leftist mob'

Maxime Bernier blames billboard woes on 'totalitarian leftist mob' OTTAWA — Maxime Bernier is blaming a "totalitarian leftist mob" for the decision to take down billboards promoting his controversial stance on immigration. The leader of the People's Party of Canada is complaining of censorship after the owner of the billboards, featuring Bernier's face and a slogan advocating against mass immigration, said he would remove the ads in response to an outpouring of criticism. Bernier says his political opponents and the "leftist mob" want to stifle discussion of immigration and keep him out of the election debates.

"As licensed immigration consultants, Mr. [Carl] Benito and Mr. Charles Benito counselled temporary foreign workers in Canada to apply for student permits, despite the applicants having no intention of going to school, in order to extend their status and allow them (and their spouses) to work in Canada," the release said.

"The Benitos and their associates facilitated short-term cash loans up to $17,000 for individuals to meet the financial requirement of the study permit application. The alleged offences occurred between November 2015 and June 2018."

As first reported by CBC News, the CBSA raided the Benitos' home and office in June 2018 and seized more than $250,000 in cash, mostly in bundles of $100 bills.

The Benitos are scheduled to make their first court appearance on Sept. 5.
