He was one of the most controversial appointees ever in Stephen Harper’s cabinet, he came within a hair’s breath of becoming the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, and then he struck out and started his own national political party. Is the Maxime Bernier message going to appeal to Guelph? We’re about to find out.
Bernier, leader of the People’s Party of Canada and MP for Beauce, PQ, will be making a pre-election stop in the Royal City next Friday. A press release from the Guelph Electoral District Association (EDA) of the People’s Party says that the night’s format will be an hour-long interview with Bernier followed by 30 minutes of Q&A with the audience.
“We will discuss a Vision for Canada; Immigration, the UN and illegal border crossing; Veterans and the Canadian Forces; Free Speech; Out of Control Cost of Living Increases and more. We will also outline what a People’s Party Government can do if given a mandate. Beyond the sound bites,” said the press release.
Mark Paralovos, the Guelph candidate for the People’s Party, will be the emcee for the evening.
The event with Bernier will take place Friday July 19 at the Guelph Youth Music Centre at 75 Cardigan St. Tickets are $20 each and available at the People’s Party Guelph EDA website here.
