The People’s Party of Canada is riding the wave of populism that has been sweeping the world. Recent polls show that Canadians are ready for change. The People’s Party is the only federal party ready to meet the demand for honest government working in the interest of all Canadians.
If an election had been held a year ago, the outcome would have been very different since there was no party ready to take advantage of this populist wave at the federal level.
The Liberals shifted left, but not far enough to be considered populist. And the NDP, under the uninspiring leadership of Jagmeet Singh, has failed to take advantage of the populist surge.
Andrew Scheer has foolishly chosen to lead his Conservatives to the shrinking political center, in a world that is becoming increasingly polarized by people-power on both the left and the right.
The Greens, under Elizabeth May, have shown strong growth resulting from dissatisfaction with the traditional parties and increasing climate alarmism in the media. However, as a single-issue party, they are not a mainstream alternative.
In August of last year, Maxime Bernier made the difficult and courageous decision to quit the Conservatives, stepping out on his own and creating a new party to give Canadians a real populist alternative in the next election. Less than a year later, Bernier has been joined by almost 300 candidates and his party has started to climb in the polls.
The historical trend toward populism makes it nearly impossible for the Liberals to win a second term, even if Trudeau had not made innumerable mistakes as Prime Minister. The newly moderate and centrist Conservatives are providing no real alternative. This leaves the PPC as the only real option ready to ride the populist wave to victory in October.
