Bernier says Brexit Party victory is proof anything can happen in October

Gatineau, May 27, 2019 – Yesterday, Nigel Farage and his newly formed Brexit Party won the European Parliament election in the United Kingdom, resulting in a stunning defeat for the old Conservative and Labour parties. Other populist conservative parties won in several European countries. This follows the surprising re-election of the populist conservative coalition in Australia last week, despite polls that predicted its defeat.

Speech - Reconciling East and West with the Right Economic Policies (Calgary)

Good afternoon everyone. Thank you very much Derek for the invitation to speak to your members today.

The theme of this event is “Equality or Independence.” Perhaps this slogan sounds new to you, here in Alberta. But for someone from Quebec like me, it has a very distinct historical connotation.


Speech - Reconciling East and West with the Right Economic Policies (Saint John, NB)

What I would like to discuss with you today is how so many of our economic problems derive from the malfunctioning of our federation. Especially for you here in Atlantic Canada. And because Canadians in many regions of our country believe other Canadians are responsible for these problems, this is threatening our country’s unity.

Speech - Choosing the Principled Alternative

You probably know that one of my nicknames, apart from “Mad Max,” is “the Albertan from Quebec.” So it’s always a pleasure to be back here in Calgary, to reconnect with my Alberta roots!

Just to make sure there is no misunderstanding here: I’m talking of course about a… small-c conservative heaven!


Speech - Announcement of New Party

Good morning,

Over the past three weeks, I have received thousands of messages of support from Canadians across the country who want a real choice in October 2019.

I have been in contact with hundreds of people wishing to get involved as volunteers or stand as candidates. Many groups of supporters are being organized, even before the party is officially registered.

And we have already raised $140,000 from very generous donors, even though it is not possible for us to issue tax receipts yet.
