PPC leader Maxime Bernier coming to Red Deer this week

The People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier is coming to Red Deer Thursday.

At the Radisson Hotel, he will host an oil and gas rally and make local candidate announcements at 2:30 p.m. for the federal election coming up.

The same evening, at 7 p.m., he will do a town hall style meet and greet event.

In August Bernier abruptly quit the Tory caucus, announcing plans for a new political movement and deriding his former leader and colleagues as “intellectually and morally corrupt” on the eve of the Conservative’s policy convention in Halifax.

He spent much of last year butting heads with Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer over supply management.

Around September, Bernier launched The People’s Party of Canada.
