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.
