Coincidentally, no one has ever seen these two in the same room together


  1. Charlie says:

    Oh, whats that? A loud mouth douchebag with an undeserved sense of pride and entitlement backs down after spewing a lifetimes worth of bravado?

    Quelle surprise.

    He apparently is citing the fact that he doesn’t believe he can beat Trudeau in 2019.

    No fuck he can’t.

    Incidentally, his departure is essentially an endorsement of Bernier as cannon fodder.

  2. Darren H says:

    Boy that’s a little harsh lol. But I give him credit for having brains and dropping out right after Trump declares trade war on Canada. Say it with me, “Un-elect-able.”

  3. Miles Lunn says:

    He has a big ego and never actually wanted to run as he couldn’t handle losing, he wants to say he had a role in choosing the next PM. Interestingly enough I think you will see others drop out now, so here are some predictions.

    Peterson drops out and endorses Bernier
    Obhrai and Saxton drop out and endorse O’Toole
    Blaney drops out and endorses Scheer
    Trost and Lemieux who knows and cares what those two Neanderthals do.

    I could see Chong and Raitt cutting a deal to put each other as second choices to improve their chances.

  4. MississaugaPeter says:

    Realized that Canada is less upset with the status quo and less right wing than the United States.

    Realized that Trump and Brexit were 2016, Le Pen and Wilders are 2017, and we are in 2017.

    But mostly realized, you can’t get elected leader of the Conservatives without knowing French.

  5. Elsie Marley says:

    Another bloviating unilingual neophyte out to reinvent the political world – or at least Canada’s – in his image; all while mostly barricaded in Beacon Hill, Boston no less.

    Anyone who took this dabbler seriously ought to give their head a shake. With his abrasive personality, financial acumen, and cross-border reality TV “celebrity”, it’s a safe bet at this stage in his life that if he can’t buy something outright he sure as hell isn’t going to work the long game for it and ultimately risk being blindsided by the political whims of the French speaking Canadian electorate.

    Au revoir Monsieur O’Leary. It’s easier playing a dragon or a shark on reality TV than it is skinny dipping in the deep blue electoral waters of Canada.

  6. Ted H says:

    That’s a rooster, it should be a turkey.

  7. Ronald O'Dowd says:


    My political mantra is never, say never. And yes, it is possible in the CPC. Just think back to 1968 and then the completed unexpected surprise in 1972.
