During his electoral campaign, Mr. Bédard protested because of his exclusion from an election debate on Société Radio-Canada on equal footing with the candidates of the three major parties Union Montréal, Vision Montréal and Projet Montréal, but his request to join in the debate was rejected.[2] During the actual elections, he brought in just 5,297 votes, 1.26% of the electorate.

Presently the Parti Fierté Montréal has no councillors in Montreal's city government.
