kevin o'leary conservative leadership race

Celebrity businessman was considered a top contender.
While it may be tempting to draw parallels between his entry into the race and the path to the White House travelled by Mr. Trump, I suspect at some point soon Kevin O'Leary will realize that he is not Donald Trump, and this is not the United States
His proposed solution to border issues is raising eyebrows.
Tory leadership hopeful has used private aircraft to get to events.
O'Leary wants the top job of Prime Minister, but he won't run in any upcoming vacant ridings because he doesn't want to sit in Parliament as an MP. That should tell you what he thinks about the men and women who give up lucrative jobs in the private sector to work as public servants. Because an MP is a public servant, accountable to Canadian voters, sworn to serve Canada.
"Here's the blaring alert for Conservatives across the country."
The businessman says he's supporting O'Leary's bid for the Tory leadership.
For more reasons than one.
He's the latest (last?) candidate to join the race to replace Stephen Harper as leader of the Conservative Party of Canada. He has no political experience and doesn't speak French. Still, I think he has a better chance of winning than most of the candidates in the ring so far.
Senators examine and pass laws.
“I think the next five years are going to be amazing."
I was asked if Kevin O'Leary could beat Trudeau and my answer was "possibly." Obviously O'Leary's action is interesting, but it is only the first step to actually doing something, the first step to moving beyond blowing smoke and hot air.
But he says it's going to be an ugly fight.
NAFTA talks will be like "Godzilla versus Bambi."
“Forget about the past, you just lost."
He dislikes the Liberal plan, but not for the reasons you might think.
Kevin O'Leary says his focus would be on the economy.
