A 40-year-old hunting guide, photographer and IT manager posted a monologue video on Twitter this weekend to respond to People's Party of Canada supporters angered by the news that political operative Warren Kinsella was hired by the CPC to "seek and destroy" the PPC via a campaign smear the party as full of racists.
DJ Sumanik is just one of many Canadians who have taken to social media to become pundits and political influencers online.
"I watched Bernier's statement on it and he says that he thinks it went further, that they planted evidence to set him up to paint him as a racist," explains Sumanik in his latest video.
"Welcome to the big show PPC. You're going to be painted as a racist no matter what. Anyone that is not firmly far-left progressive in this country is painted as a racist by the media."
Sumanik continues in his monologue to explain how this is just some of the dirty tactics used in politics.
"If [Kinsella] was just hired to dig up dirt, I don't know, sorry guys, every candidate out there is facing that same scrutiny. There are teams digging up dirt on whoever they can, however they can, wherever they can. So that's the name of the game now."
He then goes onto explain he's not a huge fan of CPC's Scheer but that he is voting for him in the hopes it ousts the Liberals.
"Finally, I think a lot of you are operating under the assumption that I'm some sort of Andrew Scheer acolyte, who just believes anything he says. I'm a Canada first guy, but Scheer is the only guy with a chance of beating Trudeau. He's the card were dealt, like him or not, get with the program, okay? Everything else is pie in the sky for now. We gotta start change with what we can, it's gonna take time."
In an interview with The Post Millennial Sumanik explained why he got involved in political commentary online.
"What activated me politically on social media was primarily the systematic attempts by Trudeau's Liberals to undermine free speech, firearm ownership and hunting rights in this country," said Sumanik.
"I'm not really a politics expert though, I just say what I think."
Sumanik's family has a long history living in the Yukon.
"My grandfather was a major player in the 80s, he brought the cross country skiing world cup to Whitehorse, and they named a nearby mountain after him. My grandma was a world competitor cross-country skier and in my younger days I also competed professionally in MMA and kickboxing."
"I spent several years in Thailand and my best result was bronze medal at IFMA world cup, heavyweight division in 2011. But my roots are here, a born and raised Yukon boy. My father ran a trapline which I helped on as a kid, he also started a fox, lynx and martin farm for fur exports, and also live exports and breeding for zoos."
The one seat in the Yukon is a close race between the Conservatives and Liberals--according to 338Canada.com--and Sumanik is concerned the PPC could split the right-wing vote just enough to help the Liberals eke out a win, something he worries could happen across the country.
Sumanik posts his video on Twitter under the name Yukon Strong, where he also shares other everyday-citizens-turned-pundit's videos.
