The People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier made stops in the Okanagan this weekend and spoke against mandatory vaccine passports while at a rally in Kelowna.

Bernier first arrived in Penticton this morning at Gyro Park and spoke to a crowd of roughly 200 to 300 people. In Kelowna this afternoon, there was roughly a crowd of 400 people in Stuart Park.

“We are in a war against ideas... We are saying no to political correctness. We are saying no to identity politics, no to racial politics,” he said in Kelowna.  “We know that a girl is a girl and a boy is a boy.”

Of mandatory vaccine cards, he said “That’s a communist society, that’s not our country.” The crowd cheered.

The party is running candidates in all Okanagan and Kamloops ridings.

In the 2019 election, the party got about 2% of the vote in Okanagan and Kamloops.
