Maxime Bernier and The People’s Party of Canada Manage to get over 17% of the Vote in Portage—Lisgar, beating the Liberals by over 9% – June 20, 2023,
The Liberals and the NDP managed to get 15.6% of the vote, while Maxime Bernier and The People’s Party of Canada Managed to get over 17% of the Vote in Portage—Lisgar by-election.
To me, that says a lot because, as one can imagine, with Justin Trudeau and Jagmeet Singh’s terrible job, you’d have to imagine the Conservative Party of Canada will likely get a majority in the 2025 election.
But, as we know, with politics comes a time when the people tire of any politician or political Party, and this is where the People’s Party of Canada should hold onto hope.
Will Maxime Bernier be alive to see the People’s Party of Canada get a seat? I’m not sure, but in Canada, as we’ve observed with the NDP, it’s a gradual process, and the mere fact that the Conservative Party of Canada is currently the most popular political Party equates to the People’s Party of Canada potentially having the opportunity, in my opinion, to be the opposition Party in the future.
I’m uncertain if Maxime Bernier will eventually call it quits, it’s not easy to constantly be losing these elections without any results, but Maxime is making good money maintaining the fight, and I don’t see why he shouldn’t keep fighting.
The mod in most Conservative strongholds is to get rid of Justin Trudeau; that’s the sentiment right now. The numbers currently show that Jagmeet Singh is taking market share from Justin Trudeau, which surprises nobody and gives everyone a glimpse into the reality that Trudeau will likely not be able to take votes from the Bloc or the NDP if he calls a snap election.
Maxime Bernier and The People’s Party of Canada are still more popular than the Green Party of Canada; however, the Green Party still manages to win seats. What I’m curious to see is how many TOTAL votes Maxime Bernier will be able to get in the 2025 election.
The PPC might be looking at all of these losses as a bad thing, but I see it as the best thing that could happen to the Party. What you don’t want is to be popular and then watch your popularity fade; instead, what you want are LOYAL supporters who vote for the PPC even when they know their chances of winning are slim to none.
17% of the people in Portage—Lisgar thought enough of the PPC to cast their vote for him, and this supposed “vote splitting” didn’t bother Branden Leslie
at all. When Erin O’Toole lost the 2021 election, it had nothing to do with PPC vote splitting.
All the seats Erin lost, he would have lost anyway; similar to the NDP and Liberals, the PPC found support that the Conservatives could never get. What we’re seeing with Pierre Poilievre that’s making Justin Trudeau and the Liberals nervous is that Pierre is taking Liberal voters from Justin.
The Liberal Party of Canada doesn’t have LOYAL supporters like the Conservatives Party of Canada does. I like to remind people that Justin Trudeau lost the popular vote TWICE, and when Trudeau won in 2015, we have to put his win into context.
Justin Trudeau promised to legalize pot, and Stephen Harper had been Prime Minister for nine years. At the very least, Harper won his elections without controversy, whereas Justin Trudeau is currently being investigated for CHEATING in the last two elections.
One could argue that Justin did get a lot done during his period as PM, but if you lived through the JT era, you would remember all the DAMAGE he caused to the country.
What I’m getting at here is that the conservatives could realistically reign for a decade following the defeat of the Liberals. When the Conservatives take over, don’t expect much austerity and expect more restructuring. Meaning that the Conservatives will likely employ a more EFFICIENT environmental policy, and they’ll likely scrap MOST of the tyrannical social policies by the Liberals, and I anticipate the economy will improve drastically.
I EXPECT CONSUMER PRICE INFLATION TO CONTINUE because I don’t see much austerity coming from the Conservative Party platform. The Canadian economy has a lot of price control mechanisms built into it, and these wage and other price control mechanisms will not allow certain prices to retreat; this is where the People’s Party of Canada can really shine,
I’ve noticed that Pierre Poilievre appears a little confused with the role of the Central Bank; similar to Stephen Harper, I anticipate Pierre Poilievre will want to employ the services of a DOVISH central banker, assuming that lower interest rates will help to grow the economy, this period has PASSED, we’re in the era of austerity and if you pay close attention the U.K politics you can clearly see that the Conservative Party there is disinterested in austerity.
Now, austerity doesn’t have to be SOLD as austerity; whether you’re talking about Ronald Reagan or Margaret Thatcher, you have to be creative whenever you’re shrinking the size of government, which in the modern era equates to SLASHING regulations and potentially rendering certain government agencies USELESS.
The good thing about the modern left is that they’ve made it okay to lie on camera BLATANTLY, and the media has also made itself rather useless. Sure, the public has short-term memories, but this is where the truth can come back because I see Pierre Poilievre running into some systematic problems once he becomes Prime Minister.
This is where Maxime Bernier and the People’s Party of Canada should be waiting to take market share. Pierre Poilievre as an example, still supports Supply Management; if you’re unaware, supply management is price control that guarantees, specific food prices will NOT retreat; this guarantees consumer price inflation is only ONE of the problems that will become problematic for Pierre Poilievre if he decides to hire a dovish central banker.
Pierre Poilievre has also stated that he will go to war with municipalities; that’s good rhetoric, but I live in Toronto as an example, and these people do not like CONGESTION; municipal politics isn’t as simple as people want to imagine it is, I like to point out that the CMHC is the real problem with housing and the Conservative Party of Canada LOVES the CMHC as well as the Real Estate lobbyists.
If the PPC plays its hand right, all of these WEAKNESSES will benefit them GREATLY, so although this counts as another loss against the PPC, I’d say 17% is pretty darn good if they’re willing to keep working.
Interesting times ahead
