People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier answered questions from the public during a rally at the Travelodge hotel in Quebec City.

The People’s Party of Canada (PPC), Maxime Bernier’s new self-described “smart conservative” political vehicle, held its first rally at the Travelodge hotel in Quebec City on Dec. 6. The meeting room was packed with nearly 350 supporters – quite an accomplishment considering the festive season and the low-key advertising, which relied mostly on social media.
