Is the PPC racist?

It’s a question that has dogged the PPC since its inception. A question that leader Maxime Bernier blasted journalists for even coming close to asking.

One People’s Party supporter spoke to our Backbench host Fatima Syed on why he believed the party was not racist, just like he wasn’t. He is one of over 800,000 Canadians who just voted for the PPC in the last election. Surely, they can't all be racist either?

In our attempt to answer that question, we found a startling string of connections between the PPC and white supremacist groups - and evidence that suggests the party is being used by these groups to accomplish their own goals.
