Can Mr. Wonderful Become the Next Leader of Canada's Conservative Party?

Riding the wave of reality stars joining the political ranks, Kevin O’Leary, of Shark Tank and Dragons’ Den fame, has just thrown his hat in the race to become the next leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.

O’Leary, or Mr. Wonderful, as he’s known among his investment circles, has been very outspoken about the economic state of Canada and has aligned himself with the morals and ideals of the Conservative party. His policies have been likened to those of the most recently elected POTUS but as far as I’m aware, he doesn’t plan on building a wall.

Although not quite as pandering as Mr. Trump, O’Leary is just as unfiltered and comes from a similar financial background. He is currently worth over $400 million US, making him one of the wealthier investors north of the border. The former co-host of the Lang & O’Leary Exchange on CBC earned his initial fortune by co-founding a software product company called SoftKey. The technologies developed by SoftKey sold to larger companies for many millions of dollars, setting up O’Leary for a lifetime of investing.

If you believe the precedent set by Donald Trump will affect the Canadian political system significantly, you may want to get your money on the +200 value at Bovada for O’Leary to follow in Steven Harper’s footsteps and become the next leader of the Conservative party.

So far, there are 14 other registered candidates, meaning Mr. Wonderful has his work cut out for him ,and considering how party leaders are elected in Canada, it’s unlikely he gets the nomination.

Will Kevin O'Leary Be the Next Conservative Party Leader?
