‘I don’t believe in mass immigration’: Maxime Bernier at PPC rally in Napanee
During the rally, Bernier told Global News, “We must not fear the fact that the climate is changing, but there’s no emergency crisis.” About 100 people from across Ontario attended a rally with People's Party of Canada (PPC) leader Maxime Bernier at the Napanee Lions Banquet Hall. The PPC is putting itself on the political map by speaking freely about controversial topics including climate change and mass immigration. On Sept. 4, Bernier sent out multiple tweets calling climate change activist, Greta Thunberg, “mentally unstable.
OTTAWA — People's Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier has secured an invitation Monday to two official leaders' debates in October.
Bernier had previously been denied a chance to attend because the independent commission responsible for organizing the debates found his party did not have multiple candidates with a "legitimate chance" of being elected.
But former governor general and current debates commissioner David Johnston gave the party more time to make its case for inclusion.
And on Monday, Johnston said that given new evidence, the People's Party of Canada does in fact have a "reasonable chance" at winning multiple seats.
Johnston said his decision was based in part on the party's membership count, its strong media presence and recent polling numbers.
Bernier will join the leaders of the Liberals, Conservatives, NDP and Greens in two debates: an event in English on Oct. 7 and a French-language debate Oct. 10.
