Direct conversation has been severely hampered over the last 18 months – masks, social distancing, limits on gathering in our homes and in public. This limitation has literally muzzled many people.

Please talk to people about what is going on. Most especially, talk to people about the implications of vaccine passports. Many people continue believing that if we just do this one thing… we will go “back to normal”. Unfortunately – or fortunately – this will not happen.

Maxime Bernier is a leader who believes campaigns should be about values that govern policy. This way, the PPC platform can remain steady election after election. This way, elections aren’t driven by campaign promises. Clarity.
