‘Anger and frustration’: PPC support climbs in final weeks of election campaign

The People’s Party of Canada has gained momentum in polls in the final weeks of the federal election campaign. The PPC’s rising popularity comes as anti-vaccine protests greet some party leaders at stops across the country. The party, led by former Conservative MP and cabinet minister Maxime Bernier, opposes vaccine mandates and lockdown restrictions.

On this episode of Crisis Management, Jeff Lagerquist and the Public Policy Forum’s Sean Speer discuss what’s driving the PPC’s popularity, and what factors Canadians are weighing as they get ready to cast their votes in the federal election.
