Five things to know about the People’s Party of Canada’s platform


Maxime Bernier, leader of the People’s Party of Canada, is campaigning on a platform that is mostly the same as the one his party put forward in 2019, with some updates to reflect the COVID-19 pandemic and the current legislative and fiscal context. Here are five things to know about the People’s Party of Canada platform: The PPC would eliminate the deficit by the end of a first mandate, which they promise to achieve partly by phasing out all pandemic spending programs, cutting corporate welfare to the tune of $5-10 billion, cutting $5 billion in foreign development aid, defunding the CBC to save $1 billion, cutting equalization payments and funding for programs that fall within the responsibilities of provinces or cities. After the deficit is eliminated they would cut personal income taxes, corporate taxes and the personal capital gains tax. They would eliminate all multiculturalism funding and instead promote the integration of immigrants into Canadian society. They also want to “substantially” lower the total number of immigrants and refugees Canada accepts each year and accept a larger proportion of economic immigrants.
