Everything You Need To Know About Kevin O'Leary: Canada's Next Prime Minister

Every since Donald Trump got elected, Canadians have been comparing him to Justin Trudeau. The two politicians are practically polar opposites, so people are beginning to wonder if Justin Trudeau is the right man to lead Canada in these uncertain times.

One man who is considering throwing his hat in the ring for the next election on October 21, 2019, is none other than Mr. Kevin O'Leary, AKA Mr. Wonderful.

As he puts it, having Justin in charge against Trump is like: "Godzilla versus Bambi".

In late November, Kevin O’Leary said he was interviewing campaign managers, fundraisers and strategists because he is toying with the idea of running to be the leader of the federal Conservative Party, which will be chosen May 27, 2017.

“Trump is going to force Canada to be competitive, and we have the wrong leadership to do that,” - Kevin O'LEary (Globe and Mail)

So who is Kevin O'Leary? 

The short answer is that he is a Canadian businessman, investor, writer, financial commentator, and television and radio personality. He's like a better version of Trump.

He has all the good "Trump Qualities" without any of the racism and bigotry.

Also he has no problem admitting he's bald which says a lot about him.

Kevin O'Leary was born in Montreal Quebec, he was a commentator on CBC and he had his own program called The Lang and O'Leary Exchange. He also appeared in the popular shows Shark Tank and Dragon's Den.

So just like Trump, he has the Reality TV aspect down.

But he's also a businessman.

He began his career as a brand manager for Nabisco, he then co-founded his own television production company. Later he co-founded a company called SoftKey which creates technology and software for family entertainment and education. He eventually sold the company to Mattel for 4.2 billion, and that's how he became a multimillionaire.

After acquiring and selling a storage company and joining the advisory board of a private equity firm, he founded the O'Leary Funds which is worth Billions of dollars today.

So we've established that he's a new and improved version of Trump, and he wants to make Canada's economy great again.

I don't know about you, but I like this guy. If he ran, I would actually be excited to vote, for once. Plus, in today's times he would make the perfect politician.

And to anyone who says he could never get elected, just remember, we're the country that elected Rob Ford as Mayor of Toronto, so anything is possible.
