Yukon — June 5, 2019
Joseph Zelezny, of Whitehorse, has been acclaimed by the Yukon – PPC Association executive as the official candidate to represent the Yukon riding in the 2019 general election this fall.
With Maxime Bernier’s example, “it is time stand up and fight for freedom since it directly relates to prosperity”, it is time to act responsibly and be fair, respectful, and restore Canada to its former glory; a nation built on unity Canadians can be proud of. A nation that innovates and leads the world in energy, technology, health, environment, science, space, agriculture and industry.
“I am proud and excited to be representing Maxime Bernier’s People’s Party of Canada in the riding of Yukon”, Joseph said. “Maxime’s voice and message represent the opinions and perspectives of thousands of Canadians across the country who feel like the traditional political parties have ignored them in favour of political posturing and pandering. It is critical that the Constitution be respected to enable a nation where all Canadians can prosper. When prosperity abounds, we can then help solve other problems to ensure the continuous progress”, added Zelezny.
“Joseph’s knowledge and support of the People’s Party of Canada’s stance on policies and promoting the betterment of Canadians, is impressive”, said Mike Nixon, former Yukon MLA and Cabinet Minister. “He has proven to be hardworking, dedicated and loyal to the Yukon. Both Joseph and Maxime Bernier have earned my support in the upcoming federal election”, added Nixon.
Joseph also said, “countless times I’ve thought to myself, Canada could and should be the most prosperous nation on earth – we are blessed with so much abundance of natural resources and amazing people from all over the world. Why is our economy and hope for a prosperous and free future being destroyed?”
Joseph has witnessed the politics of late deteriorate much of what once made Canada world a world class destination to live, work, travel to and admire for just how free and prosperous all Canadians made it so.

Maxime Bernier is known as a dependable politician who speaks his mind. A man of ideas, his belief in personal responsibility and freedom is at the heart of his political vision. In his public statements, he expresses those values and his unwavering commitment to reducing the size of government.
Maxime Bernier was born January 18, 1963, in St-Georges-de-Beauce. He is the father of two girls.
Mr. Bernier is a dedicated and experienced runner and has participated in several marathons. A tough and determined competitor, he once ran 106 km across his constituency, completing the run in 13 hours and raising $165,000 for the Beauce food bank.
In 1985, Mr. Bernier earned a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the Université du Québec à Montréal and entered Law at the University of Ottawa. He was called to the Quebec Bar in 1990.
Mr. Bernier has a long-standing interest in business and during his career worked for several financial and banking institutions before becoming Executive Vice-President of the Montreal Economic Institute in 2005.
Many people in the region encouraged him to enter politics. He took up the challenge and was elected Member of Parliament for Beauce on January 23, 2006, with the largest majority outside Alberta. He was appointed to Cabinet on February 6, 2006, as Minister of Industry.
His success in deregulating major portions of the telecommunications sector prompted the chair of the Political Science department at McGill University, Professor Richard J. Schultz, to write, “In terms of what is perhaps the single most important component of his Industry portfolio, telecommunications, he was without challenge the best Industry Minister in thirty years.”
Mr. Bernier also served as Minister of Foreign Affairs from August 14, 2007 to May 26, 2008.
He was re-elected to represent Beauce on October 14, 2008, again receiving the largest majority of all MPs in Quebec.
Re-elected on May 2, 2011, he was appointed Minister of State for Small Business and Tourism.
Maxime Bernier was re-elected a fourth time in November, 2015, receiving more than 59% of the vote.
On August 23, 2018, he left the Conservative Party of Canada to sit as an independent MP and announced the launch of a new party. Read his full statement here.
