We look at the history of populism, what it means, and how it applies to both the left and right. We delve into both the US and Canada’s very successful populist movements. Also, Pierre Poilievre’s populist ideals are shunned by the mainstream media.
“Today, CBC’s news service CP wrote a hit piece on me because I dared criticize the World Economic Forum—a group of multinational CEOs and powerful politicians that push their interests. I work for our people in this country and will bring home our democracy—without apology.” – Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre on the Canadian Press becoming political.
