BEAUCEVILLE, Que. — People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier will not win re-election in his own Quebec riding of Beauce.

Bernier, who narrowly lost the Conservative party leadership to Andrew Scheer in 2017, broke away and founded his own populist party the following year.

The Canadian Press projects that Bernier will lose the seat he won repeatedly as a Conservative to the party’s new nominee, Richard Lehoux.
