The leader of the PPC has lost his fourth election in a row.
Results from the election in the riding of Portage-Lisgar indicate that Conservative candidate Branden Leslie is the winner, and People’s Party leader Maxime Bernier is the loser.
This is the fourth election in a row Bernier has lost. Bernier ran in his home riding of Beauce in 2019 and lost. He ran in the York-Centre riding in Toronto in 2020 and lost.
In 2021, he ran again in Beauce and lost. Now he has lost again in the Manitoba riding of Portage-Lisgar.
Bernier has been slammed by conservative commentators for trying to split votes and ensure a Trudeau victory.
