Kelowna - Lake Country
A Real, Principled Alternative to The Liberals and Conservatives
On behalf of the Executive of the KLC People’s Party, I would like to congratulate Tracy Gray on returning to Ottawa as MP and thank her for her service and dedication to the citizens of this riding. I would also like to praise the other four candidates for standing up for democracy in putting their names and policies forward and for running a fair campaign in which there was very little vandalism or shenanigans.
I would like to correct some reports that the PPC was a major force in splitting the vote and costing the Conservatives the election. Stereotypes say we are right wing, but if one takes a few minutes to read the PPC policies, you will see a classical liberal party in alignment with many Canadians. Post election analysis has shown that, while some support came from disaffected Conservatives of whom it would be more accurate to say that rather than them leaving the party, the Conservatives left them when they abandoned all pretence at fiscal responsibility, significant numbers of voters split off from the Greens and NDP. Polling data has consistently shown that the typical PPC voter is young, BIPOC and working class unlike both the Liberals and Conservatives whose support rises in white, rich seniors. This is no surprise as lockdowns, debt and erosion of civil liberties disproportionately hurt young, marginalized people.
Thank you to our supporters, volunteers and the thousands who voted for our candidate, Brian Rogers, resulting in a four-fold increase from 2019. We promise to continue to work hard to communicate what the party really stands for and prepare for the next election.
Finally, I want to say how proud I am to live n this wonderful free country where we have fair and peaceful elections. Around the world we see power exerted at the point of an AK-47 in Afghanistan, burning of cities by activists south of the border and the deployment of tear gas in European elections. Despite the cynical calling of this useless election and using wedge issues to divide us and ignite passions, ours was a peaceful demonstration of democracy with one instance of gravel tossing at the Liberal leader and our own leader being hit on the head by an egg. We are lucky to have our freedoms here, and the PPC will continue to fight to keep them.

SCIENCE-DENIERS HIDE AND IGNORE DATA TO JUSTIFY DRACONIAN MEASURES
Mandating vaccines is not the same as “encouraging’ them. Science does not support need for mandates
Aug 17th, 2021
In a campaign stop in Coborg Ontario on the first day of the election, Trudeau politicized the vaccination debate by falsely framing it as a debate between “encouraging” (to use his wording) or not encouraging vaccines. Protests across the country are actually about making the jab and the passport MANDATORY. Here, we want to outline the lack of evidence to support suspending civil liberties by the ‘science-deniers’ of the other parties and some of the public health bureaucrats
ARE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT CENSORSHIP AND CANCEL CULTURE?
One of the most important contributions of the Enlightenment was Free Speech, but it is now being attacked as never before.
Aug 18th, 2021
A dangerous thing is happening around the world and here at home. Conservative voices and common sense opinions are being silenced by Leftist governments and their partners in Big Tech, all in the name of political correctness. Viewpoints that veer from the so-called mainstream are considered dangerous; the people who voice them, bigoted. Recently, Federal Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault, a Liberal, announced plans to regulate social media ....
INDIGENOUS POLICIES MUST RESPECT THE PAST AND MAKE BOLD PLANS FOR A BRIGHT FUTURE
Chief Archibald: The PPC has the only Indigenous policy that will reverse the broken promises of past political parties.
Sep, 1st, 2021
The re-discovery of cemeteries on the grounds of residential schools has raised back into the public discourse the historical inequities of the residential school system imposed by the Government of the day. The KLCPPC supports learning from our past mistakes and moving forward with policies which improve the lives of indigenous citizens of Canada. The old political parties have responded with self-serving photo ops and warmed-over platitudes with no actual changes
TAX THE RICH! ONLY THE RICH?
NOT BLOODY LIKELY!
Because “Tax the Rich” eventually means tax everyone since the spending is larger than even the rich can pay for, the only solution is reducing spending. Aug 20th, 2021
Government spending is out of control and deficits are soaring. The only solution the mainstream parties seem to consider is increasing taxes. We are told they only plan to tax the rich. But how realistic is this? It is not only bad economics, but simple arithmetic proves them wrong. The total assets of all the rich is gone in a few years but the spending goes on,. You don’t think they will be coming after YOUR house and YOUR bank account in a few years?
AFGHANS ABANDONED BY TRUDEAU DUE TO INCOMPETENCE AND DISINTEREST
Afghan civilians who worked with our soldiers are veterans who served our country, but are now at the mercy of the merciless Taliban..
Aug 26th, 2021
The unfolding crisis in Kabul is tragic on so many levels, many out of control of Canada. However, the cries of the civilians who worked with our troops were ignored by our government and the opportunity to offer them safe haven may have been missed. Many Afghans risked their lives and those of their families to work alongside our soldiers during the war. They are not immigrants or even refugees. They are essentially ‘veterans’ who served our country with bravery and distinction
THE ISSUE IS FREEDOM OF CHOICE & RESPECTING OUR RIGHTS
Both mandatory vaccinations and vaccine ‘passports’ are, in the current context, unreasonable infringements of our rights and there is no evidence to support these measures Aug 10th, 2021
The media is falsely claiming that Maxime Bernier is an anti-vaxxer and the PPC has a position opposing the vaccine. Nothing could be further from the truth. What the PPC opposes is mandatory medical treatments. An Ekos poll shows that over 62% of PPC supporters are being vaccinated, having freely chosen to do so. Under the Charter, we have rights to choose our medical treatments and rights to privacy of our personal information ....
THE PPC IS THE FASTEST GROWING POLITICAL MOVEMENT IN CANADA
At the hallway point in the campaign, support for the PPC is skyrocketing as more Canadians hear our message of freedom and prosperity.
Sept 2nd, 2021
According to polls, support for the People’s Party of Canada has increased in the past two weeks and some polls have us at 6 or 7% nationally and we are more popular now than the Green Party.
Different firms have different techniques, so before and after comparisons must be done using the same firm, and for example:
Nanos shows a change from 1.9% on Aug 12th to 7% as of Sep 13th.
This is a growth of 368%.
PPC HOUSING POLICY WILL BENEFIT ALL, NOT JUST BOOMERS
A PPC government has promised not to pander to special interest groups. Boomers have been pandered to by current and past Big Governments. No more Jul 26th, 2021
It is no secret the country is facing a housing affordability crisis. The fundamental causes of the crisis are a series of Big Government interventions in the free market. Why does the Government secretly want high house prices? It is to pander to the Boomers by keeping asset prices high. There is no way either Liberals or Tories will alienate their largest voting base by implementing any policy that will impact the price of those voters’ assets. Millennials just want Government to get out of the way
Part 2: WHAT ARE THE REAL DANGERS TO DEMOCRACY?
Is democracy in danger from ordinary citizens as claimed by radical commentators, or is it actually most in danger from our own government? Jul 26th, 2021
You do not have to be a follower of wild-eyed conspiracy theories to be concerned about the health of a democracy. It is up to citizens of this, as with any country, to remain ever-vigilant and ensure their democracy is strong.
The book Road to Serfdom, written during the war against the Nazis shows how they came to power almost unnoticed in a country that was thought to be a functioning democracy.
Part 1: AN ATTEMPTED LIBERAL
The Trudeau cabinet tried to refuse to implement legislation, contemptuously ignoring the will of Parliament in a move never before contemplated in a parliamentary democracy. Jul 20th, 2021
A private members bill, Bill C-208 was passed by the House, with the support of all NDP, Conservative and Bloc members as well as 19 brave Liberals who voted for the measure despite the government opposing it. It was approved by the Senate. It received Royal Assent on June 29. According to federal law, bills go into effect when given royal assent. On June 30th the Trudeau government stated it will NOT implement the bill, despite the fact it is now the Law of the Land.
NO ROOM FOR VIOLENT, EXTREME OR INTOLERANT PEOPLE IN THE PPC
We do not need, want or accept your support and reject any association with you
Sept 10th, 2021
The PPC identified an individual involved in the recent gravel throwing incident in London as a member of our party. We condemn all acts of violence without reservation. This individual had their membership immediately revoked, and the actions have been condemned by our leader, Mr. Bernier. We look to the other parties to act in solidarity against such violence, including the recent assault on the PPC leader. The PPC stands for Respect.
COME AND MEET US UNDER
THE BIG PURPLE TENT !
“We are a Big Tent party that is Purple, not blue or red.
Meet us at Grassroots in the Park to hear and discuss a wide variety of opinions.” Jul 8th, 2021
Our Purple Tent is both literal – look for us in a public venue or event all summer long – and a symbol of our values. The People’s Party of Canada brings together common sense, populism, classical conservatism and libertarianism and as such we welcome many viewpoints into our “Big Tent”. Other parties claim to welcome various viewpoints, but when it comes down to it, they require you to toe the party line. We are a true grassroots party. We're Purple, not red/blue or right/left. Get to know us.

A VOTE FOR THE PPC IS ACTUALLY THE BEST WAY TO USE YOUR VOTE
We must dispel the myth that a vote for your principles in voting for the People’s Party is a wasted or split vote. It is the only chance for real change. Aug 15th, 2021
We are constantly hearing that a vote for the PPC is “splitting the right wing vote” or “a wasted vote since you are too small to win”. First, let’s address the split the right canard. It is important to challenge the meme that the PPC is a far right party. A vote for the Cons just gets more of the same – no real change – so THAT is the true wasted vote if you want a better government. Finally, change may be incremental, but it CAN be done. It is time to take a stand and vote for what you believe. Vote PPC.
HAPPY CANADA DAY ...
TRUE NORTH STRONG & FREE
The Kelowna-Lake Country PPC want to wish our fellow Canadians a happy Canada Day. Erin O'Toole won't say it loud and clear, but we love our country and our flag. Jun 30th, 2021
We think Canada Day is day of joy for being Canadian. Canada is a prosperous country blessed with natural resources and unimaginable beauty. Our founders also built one of the best countries in the world. Unlike many (most?) countries it is peaceful; it is democratic; we enjoy a right to free speech; and we have a say in how we are governed. These are values that are worth defending.
Tracy Gray MP writes that an O’Toole government would spend even more money. There is no difference between them and Liberals. We will fight to elect a real alternative. Jun 26th, 2021
In a column posted June 25th, Tracy Gray highlights how the Liberals and the Conservatives are both Spend & Tax parties. Neither offers a real solution for the economy. The ruling Liberals continue to print huge sums of money (debt) which they are creating out of thin air. They spend this on poorly designed and run relief programs rife with corruption and shrinkage and with no increase in economic value, but which ...
THE LONDON MASSACRE
The KLCPPC condemns the attack on a Muslim family in London and urges action, not rhetoric, to combat hatred.
Jun 12th, 2021
The KLCPPC is horrified at the mass murder of a Muslim family in London, and regardless if this was a hate-driven or not, we unequivocally condemn this crime.
The third core principle of the PPC is “Respect”. No other party in Canada commits to this core principle. This includes respect for all people. We accept everyone as they are. “We Are All God’s Children”. ...
THE ANT & THE GRASSHOPPER:
A PARABLE FOR OUR TIMES
The well known story of the ant and the grasshopper has guided us for centuries.
Now updated for a post-modern Canada.
The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks he’s a fool, and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The shivering grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.
But in Canada ....

PPC believes adults can identify with the gender they want, and they must be respected and enjoy the same rights as every other Canadian.
