Just what Canada needs, another trickle down economics guy. I think we're all still waiting for the last trickle down effect to actually take place.
Maybe it's where your standing. Several times in the last decade I've been trickled on.

Is O'Lieary in Canada yet, or is it he still campaigning from Florida or Boston or wherever he lives.

Just watched him on breakfast television, personally he comes across with that Trump attitude but I think he can do good things for the economy. On the other hand I don't think politics is his game. He seems like a total ass hat.

Oh wait... ass hat and politics... nvm

Running a government is a lot harder than you think, O'Leary
Mr. Wonderful’s business acumen doesn’t save him from being dead wrong — a lot

I have no faith in O'Leary, but I'm not going to fault him for having concerns about corporate welfare to Bombardier or any other major corporation in Canada. Bombardier has gotten a lot of government money over the years and it seems like the controlling family are the only ones that are never loosing money on the deal.

What are his concerns on the multi-billion-dollar green electric power fiascos across the country?

Canada’s green electricity bailouts make the Bombardier giveaway look like peanuts

"Ottawa would be better off sticking with bailing out Bombardier for a few hundred million bucks rather than getting itself even more tangled in provincial electricity boondoggles where bailouts costs would run to the tens of billions."

Honestly, I have no idea what his concerns are about that topic, I don't really follow O'Leary as the chances of me voting for a party he is in charge of are extremely low. That being said, considering he's a Conservative candidate and imo pro-business in anyway he can be, I'd suspect he's no fan of throwing money at making Canada's energy more green.

Kevin O’Leary calls ridding Ontario of Kathleen Wynne a 'personal goal'

While speaking to the The IFP at a Conservative leadership meet and greet in Burlington on Sunday (March 5), the Shark Tank and Dragon’s Den star and now Conservative leadership hopeful, didn’t mince any words when describing Ontario’s biggest problem.

My personal goal is to get rid of her too. Hopefully the Liberal party doesn't beat us to it.

I suppose there's technically nothing precluding it, just that voters wouldn't go for it. Amor de Cosmos was simultaneously premier of BC, MLA for Victoria, and federal MP for Victoria.

I don't want her gone. I want her punished as an example to all the aspiring tyrants and traitors in the future. I want the entire party to pay back everything they stole. I want every one of them destitute and their families bankrupted for generations to come, never ever having any hope of living down the shame of what their forebears inflicted on us.

What is his stance on TFSA contribution room ?
Harper made it 10000 but Justine made it 5500. The main reason Justine did not get my vote.
That $10,000 was a desperate vote grab from Harper. Hmmm, wonder why he suddenly did that in an election year?

I will vote for anyone who will promise to reverse that back to 10k.

I am not a big fan of Kevin but I would definitely vote for him in a federal election. I said the same thing about Trump.
