People’s Party of Canada Trying to Make Inroads in Banff-Airdrie Riding
With the fall federal election in Canada less than five months away, party leaders have been showing off their pancake flipping, and campaigning skills at one of the many breakfasts during the Calgary Stampede.
Yesterday (July 7), one of them brought those skills to Airdrie and had his candidate who plans to run in the Banff-Airdrie riding in the election at his side.
Maxine Bernier, who formed the People’s Party of Canada (PPC) after losing in the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada to Andrew Scheer, was at the King’s Court Church in Airdrie for a pancake breakfast. With him was Nadine Wellwood, the party’s nominee in Banff-Airdrie who hails from Cochrane. From Wellwood’s point of view, the people of Banff-Airdrie haven’t had a strong conservative voice in Ottawa for some time.
