The People's Political Party[1] is a political party in the Canadian province of Ontario founded in 2011 by homeless man and perennial election candidate Kevin Clarke.

Platform[edit]

The Platform of the party is largely populist, with the party accusing the three major parties of having economic policies that benefit themselves and an elite minority rather than the province as a whole.

The party suggests that it "will focus on the service of government with people-oriented processes, supporting the needs of humanity".[3]
