VIDEO: Maxime Bernier’s Full Press Conference Announcing Greater Toronto Area Candidates

Among the candidates are Renata Ford, the widow of former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.

People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier has announced his slate of Toronto candidates for the upcoming federal election.

One of the candidates is Renata Ford, the widow of the popular former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.

On Twitter, Bernier urged people to “Vote for your values”:

“Vote for your values.

Vote for what you believe in.

Don’t settle for mediocrity.

Keep your integrity.



Votez pour vos valeurs.

Votez pour ce en quoi vous croyez.

Ne vous contentez pas de la médiocrité.

Gardez votre intégrité.


While the People’s Party has struggled in the polls, a large slate of GTA candidates is a sign of a growing organization. Additionally, having Renata Ford run for the party could bring some of Ford Nation on board with Bernier, which is a key source of support for conservatives in Ontario.
