Listen Up, O'Leary: Democracy Doesn't Fit On A Spreadsheet

Kevin O'Leary premiers his new reality show this weekend -- an all-too real show, in fact. The man who made a name for himself as the loudest and most offensive cast member of the Dragon's Den reality TV show will be testing the waters at the Conservative Party convention this weekend for a possible leadership bid. He would be a terrible leader. Terrible for the Conservatives and terrible for the national debate in this country. Being offensive and insensitive to the very real needs and wishes of Canadians is not leadership and it's certainly not prime ministerial.

The Conservative Proposal for Less Progressive Taxes Is a Bad Idea

In the real world, much of the money the rich and corporations gained from tax cuts is being socked away, often in tax havens. The amount of Canadian money in tax havens is at an all-time high.

Harper's Keynote at CPC13 - A Make Or Break Moment For The Tories?

In perhaps the most significant line of his keynote Harper proclaimed, "As Conservatives, we believe that actions have consequences." Harper might not realize it, but this is perhaps the most telling line of the weekend and goes to the core of the Senate scandal. Opinion polls have slammed Harper for his handling of the scandal, and delegates at this conference have called for him to take responsibility and accept the consequences.
