(LifeSiteNews) — People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier offered hope to Canadians weighed down by draconian COVID rules, saying the “future is ours” because “freedom” will win in the end.

“Reading some of my emails, I noticed that some people are discouraged by these vaccine passports and the loss of our freedoms. We should not be discouraged, because our ideas like our fight against the vaccine passport and for freedom are not so popular today and are not shared by the majority of our fellow citizens,” said Bernier in a video message posted on Twitter Monday. “The future is ours, because the cause of freedom will always triumph in the end. Stay strong and free.”

Bernier said that just because the idea of being free from overbearing government rules is “not widely accepted” does not mean that “it is not just and true.”

“An idea does not become just and true because it is popular. The ideas of freedom and personal responsibility are just and true and will become popular if we continue to defend them openly with passion and conviction,” said Bernier.

In the fall 2021 federal election, Bernier ran a campaign on freedom, fighting against vaccine passports, mandates, and masks, as well as government overreach. He was the only party leader to do so.

Indeed, on the day before election day, Bernier spoke at a freedom rally in Calgary and called on Canadians to “fight” for their rights.

Some prominent past Canadian politicians, including former British Columbia Premier Bill Vander Zalm, have also called out draconian COVID rules.

Vander Zalm recently warned that the “end game” from the COVID virus and jab mandates seems to be a “Great Reset” that will lead to a type of global communist order.

Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was re-elected with a minority government. The Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) under Erin O’Toole won only 119 seats, two fewer than in 2019.

The PPC under Bernier almost quadrupled its vote total from the 2019 election, winning 5 percent of the popular vote.

Vaccine passports have been enacted in all Canadian provinces even though people who have taken the experimental COVID-19 jabs can still contract and spread the disease.

Canada’s federal government recently said it will ban democratically elected Members of Parliament and staff who have not had COVID jabs from accessing the nation’s center of democracy, the House of Commons.

The COVID-19 injections approved for emergency use in Canada, including the Pfizer jab for ages 12 and up, all have connections to cells derived from aborted babies.

All four have also been associated with severe side effects such as blood clots, rashes, miscarriages, and even heart attacks in young, healthy men.
