    Maxime Bernier launches the People's Party of Canada | CBC News

    Any Canadian members tell us about this? Seems like he could be a Trump of Canada....the "conservative" party wasn't doing as it should so he left and is starting something new.

    We will see how it goes. He has a libertarian streak in him, which will draw alot of Conservatives and a few informed Liberals who are longing for classical liberalism. Canada is notoriously poorly informed, especially on the beauty of individual liberty and ambition instead of the Nanny State which so many are reliant on.

    His position on immigration is not coming from a place of great education. He should be willing to welcome immigrants from all places as long as they are high performer and love capitalism. Instead, he went down the road of "we have too much diversity". As much as I understand his point to some degree, I don't accept it, this message must be refined or outright thrown out of his platform as far as I am concerned. We don't have the same massive border problem the U.S has, or the huge illegal immigration numbers to warrant outrage on this front.

    He may be an interesting candidate, I'm rooting for if not him, a better libertarian candidate to rise and turn this nation into a nation of Rights, Capitalism and achievement. We have to stop being afraid of acknowledging that some, if not many American concepts are righteous, and our former masters across the pond who are holding on by their finger nails have not been great for our progress.

    Third party is more likely not work, but there are exceptions to the rule. The Libs stay together, The independents vote for the perswon, the conservatives vote as a group.and they can be a mixed group. So time will tell.
