Renata Ford, Maxime Bernier pin hopes on ‘Ford Nation’ to capture Liberal riding


Renata Ford's People’s Party campaign launch event, attended by party leader Maxime Bernier, on Sept. 11, 2019.

A federal election campaign launch in the Liberal Toronto riding of Etobicoke North would normally gather little media interest — except when a Ford is involved. That’s why Maxime Bernier kicked off his election bid here, hoping to capitalize on the name of his star candidate, Renata Ford.
