Maxime Bernier Launches the People’s Party of Canada

Former Conservative MP Maxime Bernier holds an Ottawa news conference to unveil details about his new federal political party. The Quebec MP announced his departure from the Conservatives on August 23, the same day the party’s policy convention was getting underway. Bernier, who came in second in the party’s leadership race, said his former party had abandoned its core conservative principles and was “too intellectually and morally corrupt to be reformed”.
