People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier loses his seat

Poll results show that the leader of the newly-formed People’s Party of Canada has lost his seat.

Maxime Bernier is projected to lose his riding of Beauce, Quebec, as he has just 29 per cent of the vote compared with Conservative Richard Lehoux’s 38.1 per cent.

Bernier formed the People’s Party in September 2018, after narrowly losing the Conservative leadership race to Andrew Scheer.
