About the People's Party of Canada

Why this name? Because it is time that the government put the Canadian people first when they make decisions and policies. It is time to put power back into the people’s hands.

For too long, Canadian politics has been hijacked by interest groups, cartels, lobbies, international organisations, corporate or union interests, and the interests of politicians and bureaucrats in Ottawa who are disconnected from ordinary citizens.

This is why government never stops growing. Taxes and regulations never stop increasing. The Liberal government is out-of control and out-of-touch. It has become unable to solve basic problems such as the migrant crisis and pipeline approval.

We see it in the way the old parties try to attract votes and support. Not by offering solutions that appeal to all Canadians. But by pandering to various groups and dividing Canadians into little tribes that can be bought with promises, privileges and taxpayers’ money.

Nobody speaks for all Canadians. Nobody speaks for the people.

The People’s Party of Canada will fight for the same fundamental values that (Maxime) put forward during (his) leadership campaign last year: Individual Freedom, Personal Responsibility, Fairness and Respect.

We don’t believe that government intervention is a solution for everything. Government should not intervene to solve each and every problem on the road to a utopian and unrealistic vision of society.

We want smaller government because we support individual freedom and personal responsibility. We have faith in people. We have faith that they have the ability, the dignity and the right to make their own decisions and determine their own destiny.

The People’s Party will restore Fairness in our country by denouncing the taxes, programs and regulations:

  • that protect industries from competition, create barriers to trade and force consumers to pay more for goods and services;
  • that discourage investment, crush private initiative, and the dreams of young entrepreneurs;
  • that force citizens to be content with inefficient government services and prevent private alternatives to emerge;
  • that unfairly distribute wealth from some provinces to others while keeping the recipient provinces in poverty.

The People’s Party will:

  • respect the taxpayers;
  • respect our Constitution;
  • equally respect all regions, provinces and territories;
  • and respect our traditions, our history, and what makes Canada a unique place in the world,
    without trying to forcibly change it like the current Liberal government is doing.
