Whether he decides to enter the leadership election or not, we can draw some concerning similarities between O'Leary's public persona over the past days and weeks with that of Donald Trump, the president-elect of the United States.
You must have seen them: people walking around, cell phones in hand, checking regularly to see what new beasts have spawned nearby. Players can be spotted around residential neighbourhoods, but even more often around downtown cores, waterfronts, and any PokéStop that has been "lured." You will see these people walking, running, or biking around -- something the older generations have been so yearning their children and grandchildren to be doing more often for decades.

The issue here is that such a tip line will do nothing but draw deeper lines in the ground between race, religion, and so on. We will notice that "barbaric cultural practices" is a purposefully vague descriptor that could encompass a plethora of different acts, yet Canadians are only left guessing as to what Kellie Leitch and her party would classify as such practices.

It should be said that the Ontario Progressive Conservatives Party's name is its own twisted type of false advertising. In fact, were Tim Hudak's policies implemented, the amount of tuition that I have to pay would increase by at least 30 per cent due to Hudak's proposed elimination of the current post-secondary grant. Under Tim Hudak, it seems that post-secondary education -- and indeed, university education in particular -- would return to being something for only the upper echelons of society.
