The People’s Party of Canada: What is their Vision for Canada – and Alberta?


March 30, 2021 :: Maxime Bernier, People’s Party of Canada Leader
Moderated by SACPA administrator

Freedom, Responsibility, Fairness and Respect are the principles that guide and inform the policies of the People’s Party of Canada (PPC). The speaker will contend that we must bring together common sense, populism, classical conservatism, and libertarianism to create solutions adapted for the challenges of the 21st century.

The mission of PPC is to offer Canadians a real principled alternative to the current establishment parties, which arguably rely on pandering and vote-buying schemes to further their interests and those of lobbyists rather than those of the people. The PPC envisions a bright future where the government puts Canadians first instead of pleasing other countries and global organizations. The PPC believes the government has to get out of the way and allow individuals to make decisions rather than controlling the economy and every aspect of your life.

The balance of power and jurisdiction between Ottawa and the provinces are constant sources for internal squabbling. The speaker will detail the importance of limiting federal interference in provincial affairs and advocate for more autonomy on taxation and financial decision making for provinces on health care, education, housing, provincial police, pension plans, human resources & immigration selection and infrastructure.

Speaker: Maxime Bernier, People’s Party of Canada Leader

Maxime Bernier, a four-term former Conservative MP first elected in 2006, and Cabinet Minister in Stephen Harper’s government, formed the PPC in 2018 after realizing that the Conservative Party of Canada was too intellectually and morally challenged to reform, having abandoned conservative principles/values over time.

Mr. Bernier is known as a dependable politician who speaks his mind. A man of ideas, his belief in personal responsibility and freedom is at the heart of his political vision. In his public statements, he expresses those values and his unwavering commitment to reducing government excesses.
