Maxime Bernier isn't fazed by recent polling that suggests he is in a dead heat with the Conservative candidate running against him in the upcoming federal election for his Quebec riding, Beauce.

"I'm pretty optimistic that in the end I will win," Bernier told Global News in a recent interview from Ottawa. "But I don't take anything for granted."

Until last year, Bernier himself had been the Conservative Member of Parliament for Beauce, a region made up of several municipalities south of Quebec City that stretches to the border with Maine. After losing the national Conservative leadership race by a small margin to Andrew Scheer, Bernier went on to renounce the party as "morally corrupt" and started the People's Party of Canada that sits even further to the right.
