The Peoples Party of Canada (PPC) has announced its arrival in the federal riding of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke with the creation of an Electoral District Association.
The PPC was formed in September of this year by Maxime Bernier, former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Minister of Industry, and Minister of State for Small Business, Tourism and Agriculture. He was runner-up to Andrew Scheer in the 2017 Conservative Party leadership election.
In a media release dated November 29 2018, it was announced that over 85 percent of Canada’s 338 ridings now have a PPC District Association established in order to support local candidates in next year’s federal election. It aims to have all 338 ridings organized by the end of the year.
The Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke Electoral District Association has arranged three meetings with residents. They will take place at:
- Renfrew Public Library Saturday, December 8, 2018 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
- Arnprior Public Library Monday, December 10, 2018 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
- Pembroke Public Library Saturday, December 15, 2018 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Neil Killips, President of the District Association, urged all residents of the riding to come to the meetings. He said,
I am excited that we now have a real alternative, so if you want to learn more about the Party, or if you want to volunteer for one of many positions, or even if you want to be a candidate in the Federal election next year then these meetings are for you. We have a lot of work to do and are actively looking for volunteers to help us reform the “business-as-usual” attitude in Ottawa.
