A group affiliated with the Federal People’s Party of Canada (PPC) may work to create a provincial version in Ontario.
Speculation about the formation of a party in time for the 2022 Ontario provincial election began on Monday morning with a deleted tweet from the account “@iMikeofStaff”.
“PPC is launching a provincial party in Ontario! They’re gearing up for an election to be held by June 2, 2022… So if you’ve been thinking about running, now’s the time. Jim Torma He is the man,” the tweet said.
Granthshala contacted Jim Torama, the federal PPC’s regional coordinator for Southwestern Ontario. He said that the PPC is currently looking into their options.
“We are exploring all options at our disposal provincially,” he said. “We are currently in the discovery phase and no decision has been taken yet.”
The federal version of the party, founded in 2018 and led by former Conservative MP Maxine Bernier, positions itself on the right in comparison to its Conservative Party rivals.
During the last federal election, the PPC tapped into anti-lockdown and anti-vaccine sentiments. they managed to get a 4.9 percent of the national vote– but failed to land any seat in Parliament.
Bernier Beaues ran for his old seat in Queue, but failed to win it back, losing to the incumbent Conservative Richard Lehoux.
