Maxime Bernier warns alienated Albertans that threatening separation actually left Quebec worse off

  Maxime Bernier warns alienated Albertans that threatening separation actually left Quebec worse off RED DEER, ALTA. — Maxime Bernier warned on Saturday that Alberta should not follow the example of Quebec in attempting to use separation as a threat to wrest more powers and money from the federal government. The strategy, he argued, has only led to more fractiousness and unhappiness in his home province of Quebec. In a speech delivered in Red Deer, Alta. at a “Freedom Talk” conference about meeting the challenge of Alberta separatism, the leader of the People’s Party of Canada and former Conservative leadership contender told Albertans their first choice should always be to “fix Canada.” “You will likely find yourself in a very negative political dynamic.

While the election may be over, you haven't heard the last of the People's Party of Canada. Maxime Bernier's People's Party of Canada got demolished in the election but will still stick around. Bad election results aren't enough to keep this sometimes controversial politician away from Canada's political scene.

In a fundraising email sent out on November 7, the People's Party told their supporters that the party would continue on.

Despite Bernier's loss in his own riding and the party not getting a single seat in the election, Canada will still be seeing more of Bernier and the People's Party.

“The struggle for a better society never ends. This was just the start. We’re here to stay,” said the party's fundraising email.

But the People's Party will be continuing on without some of their top officials. The party's executive director, Johanne Mennie, was one of the top organizers and spokespeople and will be retiring.

The email said that she was able to accomplish a lot but that the election results were "obviously disappointing for the People’s Party."

National coordinator, Caleb Voskamp and digital solutions coordinator Yanick Villeneuve will also be leaving the party.

According to Elections Canada, the People's Party of Canada only got 292,703 votes which is significantly less than the major parties who all had millions of votes.

Kelly McParland: When did our elections turn into contests for who is least worst?

  Kelly McParland: When did our elections turn into contests for who is least worst? Wouldn’t it be pleasant to enter a voting booth and mark a check beside the name of a candidate you actually supported, admired, or who represented a party you were genuinely enthused about? As opposed, that is, to grudgingly voting for someone you don’t particularly care about, but who you figure is the best way to block the candidate or the party you desperately don’t want to win? Yes, it’s an enticing picture: an election that features attractive candidates, representing popular parties that stand for reasonable policies. Sure … and maybe some day a Canadian team will actually win the Stanley Cup again.

The party only got 1.6 percent of the votes made by the almost 18 million Canadians who cast their ballots in the election.

In the email, the party claimed that the total number of votes they received was so low because Canadians were strategically voting to try and defeat Justin Trudeau and the Liberals.

The email then went on to compare the People's Party to the Green Party by saying it took six elections and 20 years for the Greens to get a vote percentage higher than what the People's Party got in their first election.

Bernier hasn't made any public appearances since he lost his riding on election day and his party failed to get a single seat.

He also hasn't been on social media that much, posting nothing on Instagram since October 12 and only tweeting a couple of times since October 25 when he said he had a lot to do following the election and his "account will remain quiet during this time."

However, Bernier will make his first public appearance since the election and it's a pretty high profile one.

He will be a keynote speaker at a conference on November 16 about Western separatism. This comes as Wexit support grows in Alberta.

According to the email, he will talk about "the political challenge of fixing Canada."

Even though Bernier and his party plan to stick around Canadian politics, no concrete timeline or plans were given on how long the party will operate for or how it plans to do better in future elections.
