Lately, it seems like the whole country has been wondering about whether or not Kevin O’Leary (Yes, the guy from Shark Tank) will be running to become the next Prime Minister of Canada.
Some news outlets were so desperate to announce it, that they even used the fact that Mr. O’Leary was taking about it with some unnamed wealthy Canadians in Florida as evidence that he has officially made up his mind.
Some days ago Mr. Wonderful was on CJAD giving an interview, and from the way he’s speaking, it seems pretty clear that he intends on becoming the next leader of the Conservative party.
He didn’t originally plan to run, but he now believes the Conservatives are in disgrace and he has something better to offer.
O’Leary is confident he can defeat Trudeau for one simple reason:
“Trudeau is a very weak leader, all the things he promised he’s not delivering on (…) Trudeau is going to elect ME, by screwing up a bit every day “
O’Leary isn’t certain exactly when he will join the race, he may take his time and enter later once more candidates have dropped out.
After all, he’s already recognisable and he has all the funds he needs to run, so he can afford to take his time.
I don’t dislike Mr. Wonderful and I’m not crazy about him either, but he’s a smart man and a natural leader.
And perhaps the leader our country will need in these uncertain times.
