The local Peoples’ Party of Canada (PPC) candidate in the federal election is gearing up for a run provincially.
“Right now, there’s a bunch of things going on behind the scenes to get the party in motion,” Brian Everaert told his Facebook followers last week. “I have every intention of running in the spring election in Sarnia-Lambton as the PPC Ontario candidate for the provincial party. I’m gonna do it.”
News reports have speculated about an Ontario PPC party forming ahead of the 2022 provincial election.
“It’s early right now in the formation in the party and I have talked to some officials that are there. They said there’s nothing etched in stone right now but I’m going to move forward and make sure that we’re ready,” said Everaert, who earned 11% of the vote in last month’s federal election — a big jump from 2019 when he took 3% of the vote.
“I’m going to assemble a massive team, and we’re going to go after this.”
