DEFEND Democracy – Reject the People’s Party of Canada
The far-right People’s Party of Canada has worked hard to portray itself as a friend of working people and an opponent of the wealthy and privileged. The Conservative Party has attempted the same sleight of hand, with less success, because working people still remember the Harper government and the hardship it delivered during and after the 2008-09 economic crisis.
In fact both parties represent the interests of the wealthy and privileged, and are committed opponents of working class and democratic rights and interests. Not a big surprise since the People’s Party is a far-right splinter formed when its leader, Maxime Bernier lost the Conservative Party leadership race in 2018.
