People's Party Billboards Are Appearing Around Canada & Literally Everyone Hates Them - 2019-08-24
With October's federal election only mere months away, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Canada's politicians would be on their best behaviour. However, with the latest installments of Trudeau's SNC-Lavalin scandal and Scheer's 2005 anti-gay-marriage video leaking, it is hard to believe there was any more room for controversey in Canadian politics this week. Alas, not to be outdone, the People's Party of Canada are the latest to indulge in a bit of pre-election drama, after receiving widespread criticism for a number of offensive billboards that have popped up nationwide.
The new billboard, that endorses the People's Party of Canada (PPC), was first spotted on a Halifax highway on Friday morning. The advertisement shows PPC leader Maxime Bernier's smiling face, alongside the message "Say NO to mass immigration." Yikes.
As should have been expected, within hours of the billboard going up, it was doing the rounds on social media, with Canadians from far-and-wide condemning the billboard's message and calling for its removal.
