Bernier talks controversial party values on NB campaign stop

People’s Party of Canada leader discusses immigration, climate change


"If you have a bigger ratio of economic immigrants with fewer immigrants globally, you're able to serve the economic needs of your province," he said.

"The goal of our immigration policy must be to fill the economic needs in this country."

That means accepting fewer refugees and clamping down on migrants crossing the border at unauthorized points, he said.

'There is no climate emergency'


Bernier, who visited Saint John on Monday, was scheduled to attend a candidate announcement Tuesday evening in Fredericton.



The capital city is among the communities along the St. John River that experienced historic spring flooding in recent years — flooding that many experts link to climate change.
Bernier, however, said the flooding is just a natural occurrence.

He was asked what he would say to New Brunswick residents and officials suffering from repeated flooding who believe climate change is a factor.
"We have hurricanes, we have flooding, we have that. It's part of nature, you know," he said. "We can do what we can about it, but I don't want us to impose a carbon tax and more regulation and change our way of living.

"We must not panic. There is no climate emergency."

Bernier's party plans to get rid of the carbon tax, citing an increased cost for business and the threat of job losses. Instead, the party plans to allow provinces to reduce emissions through their own programs "if they want to."

The leader will make stops in Miramichi, Moncton and Shediac on Wednesday.

The People's Party of Canada has candidates in eight of New Brunswick's 10 ridings, with openings in Acadie-Bathurst and Madawaska-Restigouche.

According to the CBC Poll Tracker,the party sits fifth at 2.6 per cent.

I was one of those who, for the simple reason that he was the best candidate for the leadership of the Cons when he lost; not because he wasn't the best candidate, but because of behind-the-scene machinations of those who believed A.B.B. (anybody but Bernier). Instead the Cons got a milquetoast excuse for a leader instead of someone who had challenging views. Do I personally believe in or support those views? No, I emphatically do not, but I also believe they are more closely aligned with actual conservative values than what Andrew Scheer espouses. It's unfortunate that M. Bernier will likely not be able to test the viability of his ideas and policies because of backroom deals a la the stab in the back the Progressive Conservative Party received courtesy of one Peter McKay!

It doesn't really matter that Bernier's party won't do much in the election - if he'll hit the various party leaders with tough and/or uncomfortable questions during the debate he'll be useful to canadians. Even more useful would be a requirement that the leaders give straight answers rather than talking around the questions.

Bernier's in — and the federal election debates just got less predictable

In such a tight race, Bernier's sudden elevation to the big stage will change the debate dynamic


The stage is set for Maxime Bernier. His challenge now is to perform.

The leader of the nascent People's Party of Canada (PPC) yesterday got his coveted invitation to take part in the two televised debates organized by the independent Leaders' Debate Commission. The debates — one in English and the other in French — will be held on Oct. 7 and Oct 10.

The invitation extended by debates Commissioner David Johnston reverses a preliminary ruling last month that found Bernier didn't meet two of the commission's three criteria to qualify.

Johnston's initial conclusion was that, according to polling data current at the time, the PPC didn't have a "legitimate chance" to win more than one seat. He gave the PPC time to submit more material to change his mind.

And now Johnston has — by citing polling data from four ridings the PPC itself had identified as winnable and by factoring in what Johnston called the "recent political context" that included the party's membership and fundraising activity.

So Bernier's in. What does that mean for him, his party and the debates themselves?

For Bernier, the benefits are obvious. Johnston's conclusion that his party has a real chance of winning more than one seat confers a new level of legitimacy on the PPC and its core messages.

The outlier candidate


"Canadians will be able to look at all the options," Bernier said after the decision was released Monday. "I can tell you that the People's Party is a real, national party with serious reforms that need to be done for a freer and more prosperous country."

The debates give Bernier a national stage upon which to promote his ideas — many of which are at direct odds with those of the other parties, and some of which challenge some of this country's long-standing policies in support of an egalitarian and open society.




Bernier has vowed to defend what he calls a "Canadian identity" by limiting immigration and requiring those who come to this country to first pass a 'values' test. He also would do away with official multiculturalism.
Bernier is alone among federal party leaders in saying he would eliminate all government subsidies to industry and kill supply management.

And the PPC rejects the scientific consensus that human activity is the principal cause of global warming. Its platform promises to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, scrap any price on carbon and withdraw subsidies for green technology.

"Despite what global warming propaganda claims, carbon dioxide is not a pollutant," the party's platform says. "It is an essential ingredient for life on earth and needed for plant growth."

A bigger target


Taking part in the debate vastly improves Bernier's chances of contrasting these views with those of the other leaders before a large Canadian audience. But it also will make him a bigger target for the other leaders' attacks. Neither the NDP nor the Conservatives wanted Bernier in the debates. They still don't.

"Mr. Bernier's conduct risks bringing the debates into disrepute," the NDP wrote in a letter to Johnston. "He has eagerly courted outright racists for his new party … His willingness to accept the support of openly bigoted activists is matched by an eagerness to mislead and misinform the public."

Jagmeet Singh reacts to the decision to allow Bernier into the debate - 
he thinks it’s wrong to allow someone with “hateful and divisive” 
messages to take part.

5:02 PM - Sep 16, 2019

The Conservatives made their own submission to the election debates commission (cited by Johnston in his decision) pointing out that the last time a party won a seat with less than three per cent of the national vote was in 1949. The CBC Poll Tracker estimates PPC support nationally at 2.9 per cent.

The Liberals put out a statement saying simply that the party accepts Johnston's decision.

Bernier's presence will change the dynamic on stage, said long-time Conservative strategist Jason Lietaer. More leaders on stage could mean fewer opportunities for the kind of one-on-one exchanges that defined the 1984 and 1988 elections — when Conservative Leader Brian Mulroney and Liberal Leader John Turner engaged in spirited exchanges over free trade and the GST.

For the frontrunners, a new distraction


"Tactically speaking, adding a [sixth] voice to these debates means less time for a bunfight between the frontrunners," Lietaer said. "It will make harder for anyone to score points."

Lietaer and other strategists said they expect Bernier to focus most of his energy and time on painting Justin Trudeau and Andrew Scheer as two peas in the same pod.


Between 1995 and 1997, in only TWO years, the Chr├ętien-Martin 
government eliminated a $30B deficit (equivalent to $43B in 
today’s dollars).@AndrewScheer is LESS FISCALLY CONSERVATIVE 
than the Liberals were 25 years ago!

Embedded video
11:16 AM - Sep 15, 2019



Bernier regularly vows through his Twitter feed that a PPC government would eliminate the deficit in two years — three years faster than Scheer is promising to do — through cuts to foreign aid, corporate welfare and funding for the CBC.

"It will make Scheer's job more difficult. He will now have to parry attacks from both the left and the right," Lietaer said. "I expect Bernier to go after both. He'll make the argument that Trudeau has failed and Scheer would be no better."

So Bernier has his stage. He has a role. The only thing that's not set is the script. Will he be a bit player, or will he be cast as the villain? If the other leaders have their way, we can expect a little bit of both.

Sowing confusion, Rhino party fields candidate named Maxime Bernier in Beauce

Satirical party takes aim at leader of People's Party of Canada by running candidate with same name





The Rhinoceros Party is hoping name recognition will give their newest candidate a leg up in the Beauce region, or at the very least sow confusion.

The party has nominated a candidate named Maxime Bernier where the leader of the People's Party of Canada, who has the same name, is also running.

In an interview with CBC News, Bernier said he was approached by members of the satirical party on Facebook and asked if he wanted to run.



Although he's never met the PPC leader, he said it was impossible to avoid the association.

"For the last 20 years, I'd say my name, and I'd hear exactly what Maxime Bernier was doing," he said, adding that people would often joke about how they have the same name.

"This is like, we'll switch the roles. And we'll see if people like me more than him!" he said.

"It's like a payback, but without any bad [intentions]."
Despite the tongue-in-cheek reason he was approached, Bernier said he's serious about running a campaign.

"They asked me at the beginning if I could be just a name," he said. "And I refused that. If I'm doing to do it, I do it all, or I'm not doing it at all."

The 42-year-old from Lac Saint-Jean, who works in the delivery sector, said he plans on focusing on local issues that concern the Beauce, instead of national issues.

"Maxime Bernier thinks it's a bigger concern to fight with a little 16-year-old girl… and tell everybody that [climate change] is not happening, that it's just a story to scare kids, instead of taking care of the people that are supposed to vote for him," he said, referring to Bernier's comments about teenaged climate activist, Greta Thunberg.

"The way he's thinking, I really think it's from another century."

He said that his campaign would focus on the needs of people in Beauce, especially those in the agricultural and dairy sectors, "because they're the ones that elect me."

"I'm not going to try to win Ontario because I want to be the chief of a party," he said.

In a statement to Radio-Canada, the PPC said it was "a good joke" but that they were "confident that the people of Beauce will vote for the Maxime Bernier they know, and not the one imported from Lac Saint-Jean."

As for the Rhino candidate, he said that if anyone is confused, they can refer back to his slogan.
"If you're not sure, then vote for both!"

When the Conservatives were in power in 84-93 a private company PAI brought out couple of books. Somehow they had gotten lists of key, major staff in all Ministers offices, their passport sized photos, and resume. On the internet or public library or legislature library one can check, PAI- MInisterial Staff Guide. Google somehow, reportedly at one put it on the internet for awhile under Google books? Imagine you work in a government office and someone somehow is selling some of your details? Is that what? Who could approve? I wonder what Andrew Scheer, Rona Ambrose or Lisa Raitt might call that kind of systematic activity?

But you did have to know something about the Law of the Sea, right? Ortis was specifically hired because of his knowledge of communications security.

Reply to @Howie Torrans:
He was specifically hired because he wrote about the security implications of organised crime having access to secure means of communication. He knew such means exist, and obviously knew about at least one Canadian company which provides those means, but that doesn't mean he knows the nuts and bolts of how to track those communication. It doesn't even mean he knows about the nuts an bolts of network analysis. He knows there are experts in those things, and consults them.

RCMP working to limit possible damage to allies in wake of spy charges: commissioner

RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki declines to comment on motive in Cameron Ortis case

 
RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki said today the national police force is working to limit security risks among Canada's intelligence allies and assess potential operational damage in the wake of charges laid against one of its top intelligence officers.

"We are aware of the potential risks to operations of our partner agencies in Canada and abroad and we are working in partnership to ensure mitigating strategies are in place," Lucki said during a news conference at RCMP national headquarters in Ottawa.

"Once the RCMP became aware of the alleged activities, we worked with partners to take immediate steps to safeguard the information. Together, we are working to assess the level of impact to operations, if any."

Late last week, Cameron Ortis, 47, was charged under a section of the Security of Information Act that applies to individuals "permanently bound to secrecy" as a condition of their work. The director general of the RCMP's national intelligence co-ordination centre is accused of preparing to share sensitive information with a foreign entity or terrorist organization.

The commissioner said she could not comment on possible motives. She said Ortis has been employed in various roles by the RCMP since 2007.

Lucki also said no Canadian ally has made any moves to limit or suspend intelligence-sharing with Canada.

"We haven't had any restrictions at this point, and again, it's early on in the investigation," she said.

In a written statement issued yesterday, Lucki confirmed that Ortis had access to domestic and foreign intelligence.

She called the allegations "extremely unsettling."

Leak could cause 'devastating' damage: documents


According to documents viewed by CBC, the cache of classified intelligence material Ortis allegedly was preparing to share is so vital to Canada's national security that the country's intelligence agencies say its misuse would strike at the heart of Canada's security.

"CSE's preliminary assessment is that damage caused by the release of these reports and intelligence is HIGH and potentially devastating in that it would cause grave injury to Canada's national interests," say the documents.

The documents reveal that investigators covertly searched Ortis's condo last month and found a number of handwritten notes providing instructions on how to share documents without leaving a paper trail.
They also reveal that Ortis was just over $90,000 in debt.

The documents allege the security services first got wind of Ortis through a separate investigation of Phantom Secure Communications, a B.C.-based company under investigation for providing encrypted communication devices to international criminals.

In March of last year, the FBI revealed that it had taken down an international criminal communications service based in Canada that had revenue of $80 million over the last decade.

The documents seen by CBC News say the FBI investigation discovered in 2018 that a person was sending emails to Vincent Ramos, CEO of Phantom Secure Communications, offering to provide valuable information.

The documents allege that person was Ortis.

"You don't know me. I have information that I am confident you will find very valuable," one email contained in the documents reads.

A subsequent email promised to provide "intel about your associates and individuals using their network internationally."

Ortis is expected back in court later this week.
