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.

Kevin O’Leary reportedly to run for MP in Dufferin-Caledon
https://theribbon.net/2017/03/13/kevin- ... n-caledon/
Orangeville, Ontario – Rumours coming from the Dufferin-Caledon Conservative riding association suggest executives there are discussing a bid by Conservative front-runner Kevin O’Leary to replace Conservative MP David Tilson. Turning seventy six this Sunday, David Tilson is the oldest sitting Member of Parliament – representing the Dufferin area for thirteen years as a federal MP and twelve as an Ontario MPP.

If true, this marks a turnaround for O’Leary who had previously had said he wouldn’t be seeking a seat in parliament while in opposition:

“I am not going to seek a seat,” O’Leary was quoted as saying. “That’s a waste of time for me right now.”

Well at least it was to benefit investors if they took advantage -- unlike this dweeb who's gonna raise cap gains, implement carbon taxes that is just a cash grab, etc...

He's in the top 2-3 frontrunners, but the electoral process is complicated. It's hard to say what his overall chances are until the vote happens.

Non sequitur. What is the point you are trying to make here?

Too bad, I would have loved to see him in the debate rip apart Trudoh. I thought Bernier would win either way, but I feel O'leary would have a better chance in a 1vs1 against selfie man just because people know his name and want our country on a better economic path and someone able to negotiate with world leaders/trump.

Disappointing but not surprising based on how the last 30 or so days have gone. It was looking more and more like he wouldn't have the votes to beat Bernier.

I hope he runs as a candidate for the Conservatives still. He would be an asset to the party in the next election.

Based on the release of the final # of Conservative members eligible to vote, Quebec saw the largest increase in membership,

It's possible that data had an effect on O'Leary's consideration of his chances, and I guess he'd rather drop out than lose. Odd that none of the others polling single digits felt the same.

A lot of the others aren't out yet because they either want to put a focus on the policies they're pushing or they want the small amount of media coverage because they hope to run again in the future.

O'Leary has no policy fights and he doesn't need the publicity. The worst thing for him would be losing and it was looking more and more like the case.
