Extreme right-wing narratives gain momentum in federal election, despite parties struggling in polls..

Viewers of Monday night’s leaders’ debate caught a glimpse of an ugly trend emerging in Canadian politics.

In the first round of questions, CTV’s Lisa Laflamme read out some of the most divisive tweets authored by People’s Party Leader Maxime Bernier:

“You called diversity in Canada a cult and extreme multiculturalism. You’ve used the words ghetto and tribes to describe newcomers whom you say bring distrust and potential violence. On Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old climate change activist, you called her, quote, clearly mentally unstable. Are these the words of someone with the character and integrity to lead all Canadians and represent us on the world stage?”
