Press release - Maxime Bernier Released from Jail but Forced to Cancel his Manitoba Tour
PPC HQ, Ottawa, June 12, 2021 — After spending about eight hours in jail at the St-Pierre-Jolys RCMP detachment, People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier was released late last night on condition he paid a cash bail of 1000$ and promised not to break Manitoba law.
“I knew I risked being arrested in Manitoba after the threatening letter I got from the province’s public health official and declarations from local despot Brian Pallister. But it’s still always a shock when it happens, when the police treat you like a criminal and handcuff you because you dared talking to a dozen people outdoors in a small village half an hour before,” commented Mr. Bernier.
“It’s crazy to see this happen in Canada,” continued the PPC Leader. Meanwhile, politicians from Trudeau to Kenney to various ministers get caught flouting regulations, and nothing happens. It’s only ordinary people who pay for not following these tyrannical rules, and politicians like me who openly fight them. The hypocrisy is astounding.”
At 9:45 Manitoba time this morning Mr. Bernier took the first available flight back to Montreal. Although he was forced to leave the province and cancel his “Mad Max Manitoba Tour,” he vows to continue the fight to end the unjustified and disastrous lockdowns in Manitoba and across the country in the coming days and weeks. He will have to appear in court in Winnipeg on July 27. A failure to agree to the bail conditions or any reoffence in Manitoba after his release would have left him open to stay in jail until that court appearance.
