WOW: Charest holds largest rally yet with 64 people

Conservative leadership candidate Jean Charest had his biggest rally yet on Monday after drawing in a crowd of a whopping 64 attendees in Etobicoke, Ontario. 

Charest tweeted about engaging with the “many Canadians” who want to see him head the CPC. 

His campaign has slammed perceived frontrunner and primary opponent Pierre Poilievre for drawing in massive crowds at campaign rallies throughout Canada.

“Didn’t Mr. Bernier also have big crowds? Now, as far as I know, Mr. Bernier does not have a seat in the House of Commons, neither he nor anyone else from his party. Don’t be misled. This is about memberships,” claimed Charest. 

Charest has also attacked Poilievre over his populist tendencies and compared his support for truckers to supporting law-breakers. 

Despite Charest’s events being open to the public and the media, his campaign rallies have not drawn comparable numbers.

More notably, Conservative MP Leslyn Lewis has held big crowds to her campaign events.

As pointed out by political strategist Michael Diamond on Twitter last week, Poilievre was able to fill a conference room full of people last week a day before Charest spoke to the same mostly empty room.

Poilievre is currently leading the pack according to Conservative leadership polls. 37 per cent of Conservative voters said that they think the CPC MP will win the race, while only 14 per cent said the same of Charest.
