Maxime Bernier of the People's Party of Canada has lost his longstanding seat for the riding of Beauce, Quebec.\nIn fact, the PPC failed to win any seats in this year's federal election.\nSome Canadians are viewing this as a victory unto itself... here are some of the most hilarious Twitter reactions to the news.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nAs the Liberals celebrate another federal election win, albeit a minority government, other parties have been relegated to giving their concession speeches, and none more notably than People's Party leader Maxime Bernier, who managed to lose the party's only seat.\nBernier had held his seat in the Beauce riding of Quebec since 2006, but couldn't maintain it this year, where Conservative Richard Lehoux has taken over after yesterday's election.\nWhich perhaps indicates that Beauce has always been a Conservative riding, considering Bernier's place in the Conservative party lasted 12 years, and they maybe never had any intention of following Bernier down his new, right-wing populist path via the new PPC.\nIn fact, the newly formed party didn't manage a single seat in this election, which could spell disaster for the party going forward. Though Bernier's concession speech spoke of no such thing.\nWhile those small numbers who did vote for the PPC are likely disappointed in the loss, other Canadians have been sharing their... alternative reactions.\nAnd they are absolutely hilarious.\nThe news that Bernier's People's Party had done so poorly quickly spread throughout the Twittersphere.\nMaxime Bernier's People's Party has captured 0.5% of the vote thus far. One independent candidate in Cape Breton has garnered more votes thus far than all the PPC candidates combined.— Justin Ling (@Justin_Ling) October 22, 2019\nMaxime Bernier loses his SEAT AND IM CRACKING THE BUBBLES 🥂🍾🥂🍾🥂🍾🥂🍾🥂— Kathleen Edwards (@kittythefool) October 22, 2019\nAnd the celebrations were quickly underway for those who felt the party's divisive politics had no place in Canada.\nThe jokes and memes quickly came pouring in, like this jab from Canadian satire staple, This Hour Has 22 Minutes.\nMaxime Bernier has lost his seat in Beauce. Let's take a look back at all his best moments as People's Party leader: #elxn43 pic.twitter.com/hokaVOVecc— 22Minutes (@22_Minutes) October 22, 2019\n“People’s Party of Canada” #CdnPoli #elxn43 pic.twitter.com/19qu3PCcEQ— Kelly Canuck🍁 (@KellyCanuckTO) October 22, 2019\nThe PPC has been a worrisome presence in this election for many who feared it was a "haven for right-wing fringe elements," after several candidates were "outed for racist or sexist social media posts" and three of the party's founders were found to "have ties to white supremicst groups," according to the Globe and Mail.\nClearly, our girl Kelly Canuck is more than a little pleased that the PPC didn't manage to snag any seats in this year's election.\nCanadians to far-right populist groups:Get. Off. Our. Lawn. 🇨🇦#CdnPoli #Elexn43 pic.twitter.com/9WFcTUYNZj— Kelly Canuck🍁 (@KellyCanuckTO) October 22, 2019\nMaxime Bernier losing is quite something and it speaks volumes about Canadians. The guy had been representing his riding since 2006. But changed his politics towards a right wing extremist agenda and they voted him out. And for that, as an immigrant, I am thankful.— Juan Moreno-Cruz (@jmorenocruz) October 22, 2019\nThough she is not the only one, and many Canadians are celebrating their loss as a rejection of racism, fascism, climate change denial and right-wing extremism.\nAnd there's no denying that this loss is extra sweet (for those who wanted it) when you consider that Bernier had held this seat for so long and with this one decision to move from Conservative to PPC, he lost it.\nMe learning Maxime Bernier didn’t even win his own riding tonight 😂👏🤣#elxn43 #CanadianElection pic.twitter.com/oycIIlpM3H— Lindsay Graves (@LindsayGraves26) October 22, 2019\nMe, can’t stop laughing at #MaximeBernier losing his seat. 😂🤣😂😩💀 #elxn43 pic.twitter.com/VMlNonBoaK— Ujustgotlawyered (@ujustgotlawyerd) October 22, 2019\nWhich indicates that voters in the area weren't swayed by the PPC's promises or platforms.\nSome people were more annoyed that, in the end, we spent so much time as a national community talking about Bernier and his platforms.\nhow did we waste that much time talking about maxime bernier— 𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐬𝐡𝐚 𝐤𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐡𝐧𝐚𝐧 (@ManishaKrishnan) October 22, 2019\nAnd so it was that nobody had to take Maxime Bernier seriously ever again, and so the whole country won the election. THE END— Ivor Tossell (@ivortossell) October 22, 2019\nThough, it could be said that, if Bernier hadn't become such a talking point, voters may have been tempted to vote for him again, particularly those voters who had done so for so many years.\nA well-informed electorate is a prerequisite to democracy, after all.\nREAD ALSO: This Is How A Liberal Minority Government Will Affect Quebec\nThough it seems that perhaps there was some preying on an uninformed electorate...\nBest rat fucking of Canadian election was from Rhinoceros Party (Parti Rhinoceros) which ran a guy named Maxime Bernier to take votes away from anti-immigrant PPC leader Maxime Bernier. https://t.co/TaTNQil7YK— Jeet Heer (@HeerJeet) October 22, 2019\nHow did the other Maxime Bernier do in the Beauce, you ask. Well, better than I thought. pic.twitter.com/5efx9CpXcq— Jonathan Montpetit (@jonmontpetit) October 22, 2019\nParticularly with Parti Rhinoceros candidate Maxime Bernier, who managed to get quite a number of votes in Beauce, where he ran in direct competition with the other Maxime Bernier.\nYes, the memes make it clear that many Canadians could not be more content with this turn of events.\nMaxime Bernier makes his concession speech pic.twitter.com/6cheK4urgk— Robyn Urback (@RobynUrback) October 22, 2019\nMaxime Bernier going to look for employment tomorrow morning #ElectionsCanada pic.twitter.com/QWl4DAlwkk— anton (@AntonTankovich) October 22, 2019\nAnd it is unclear whether the PPC will survive this election and manage to try again next election. Only time will tell.\nWe can at least be glad that voters in Beauce didn't sully their votes by being tempted to mark their ballots with fleurs de lis or "AWEILLE."\nListen up, I’m telling you how to vote. In NL’s last election a tight recount involved a judge considering whether whether happy faces, stars and “yes b’y” (seriously) spoiled ballots. The seat was won by 2 votes.So please just put an “X” in the circle beside a name. #elxn43— Melissa Royle (@melissaroyle) October 21, 2019\nThis tweet has nothing to do with Maxime Bernier... it was just too good not to include.\nLove you, Newfoundland. Never change.\nSo Maxine Bernier was too racist? Even for Quebec????? #elxn43 #ElectionsCanada pic.twitter.com/cD6BXnvmpO— biLlY eYeLa$h ✨ (@nitsirk_) October 22, 2019\nYou, too, Québec. You did good.\nThe opinions expressed in this article are the author’s own and do not necessarily reflect the views of Narcity Media.
