Maxime Bernier officially launches new conservative People’s Party


Former Conservative Party member Maxime Bernier announced on Friday the name of his new party, the People's Party of Canada, and said he's received numerous calls of people wanting to be candidates.

His move came following a tumultuous year that saw Bernier repeatedly at odds with Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer, to whom he narrowly lost the party leadership race last year and who he accused of having won only due to "fake Conservatives" who Bernier said bought memberships to protect supply management.
