The leader of the People’s Party of Canada (PPC) is coming to Estevan on July 30.
Maxime Bernier will be speaking at an event at the Beefeater Plaza. Doors will open at 5 p.m.. There will be a supper, and Bernier will speak during the evening.
The cost per ticket is $50, and the funds raised will be split between the Souris-Moose Mountain electoral district association for the PPC, and the Estevan Comprehensive School Elecs football program.
“I am in politics to defend ideas, real conservative ideas, because I passionately care about Canada’s future,” Bernier said in a press release. “Because I know that the free-market conservative philosophy has the best solutions to ensure our society is more prosperous, secure, and peaceful.”
Bernier was elected as a member of Parliament for the Conservative Party back in 2006, and has held a number of cabinet posts.
He formed the PPC last year after leaving the Conservative Party.
Phil Zajac of Estevan has been announced as the party’s candidate in Souris-Moose Mountain in the next federal election.
