In a policy plank released Friday, the People's Party of Canada (PPC) vowed to scrap the Canadian Multiculturalism Act if elected and cancel all funding that promotes the concept.

"In a free society, immigrants have the right to cherish and maintain their cultural heritage," the platform states. "However, that doesn't mean we have any obligation to help them preserve it, with government programs and taxpayers' money."

The campaign promise prompted strong reaction from Bernier's opponents, including the Liberal government.
