Corporate welfare, the Koch brothers and being ‘authentic’: Maxime Bernier in conversation

Maxime Bernier is hoping his new People’s Party will usher in a conservative revolution in Canada.

For years, Bernier has been championing the cause of smaller government, lower taxes and reduced immigration — but now the Quebec MP who finished a close second to Andrew Scheer in the last Conservative Party leadership race thinks these ideas can win the next Canadian election.

A recent Nanos survey found that 17 per cent of Canadians would be open to supporting Bernier’s new party, something he credits to his principled policies.
