PPC candidate loses party status after asking Bernier to denounce racism

Sep 13 2019, 3:10 pm

A People’s Party of Canada (PPC) candidate in BC has now had his candidacy revoked, after he shared now-deleted videos on Twitter of himself asking PPC Party leader Maxime Bernier to distance himself from – and denounce – “people who believe in racial purity or feel other groups are inferior, and want to exterminate those groups.”

In the videos shared on Twitter this week, Brian Misera – who was running in riding of  Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam – calls out Bernier directly, saying he has received what he considers “legitimate concerns” about the PPC.

“I don’t want anything to do with that crap,” he says in the video. “If you [Bernier] can’t be adamantly clear about that, I don’t know how the hell you expect me to campaign for you”

Misera adds that he doesn’t “want to to be berated by people who think I’m an actual nazi.”

After sharing his videos Misera tweeted that the PPC had revoked his candidacy.

He tweeted another message stating that “the PPC attracts by and large great people who love Canada.”

It was nice, he adds, “to not be judged as a white male, but accepted as a proud Canadian.”
