WEXIT Canada will become an officially registered party once it runs a candidate in the election or any federal byelections, Elections Canada said.

"Our political class has failed us and this is the reaction," WEXIT Canada leader Peter Downing said. "This is the response and this is the natural consequences of poor political representation in Western Canada. Now we're going to have good political representation." Tweet This

The WEXIT movement gained traction following October's federal election, which saw Justin Trudeau's Liberal's win a minority government, despite a near-sweep by the Conservative Party of Canada in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Two Facebook pages with the WEXIT name gained hundreds of thousands of followers in the hours and days following the federal vote.
