TORONTO (Reuters) - An upstart Canadian right-wing political party announced on Friday that "ending official multiculturalism and preserving Canadian values and culture" will be part of its platform for the Canadian federal election in October.

The People's Party of Canada (PPC) was founded in September 2018 by Maxime Bernier after he lost a leadership bid for the Conservative party.

Bernier, 56, has focused on limiting immigration and protecting so-called Canadian values in contrast with the more moderate Conservatives, prompting some pundits to refer to him as Canada's Donald Trump.
