Kevin O'Leary's extremism logical addition to Canada's Conservative Party

Like this article? rabble is reader-supported journalism. Chip in to keep stories like these coming.

Rather than some strange deviation, Kevin O'Leary seems like a logical addition to the recent pack of extremists leading Canada's political right.

What perhaps distinguishes O'Leary from Rob Ford, Stephen Harper and Tim Hudak is the sheer openness with which he advocates greed and making Canada safe for billionaires.

During elections, it's all about the leader

I wish I could muster more fury over Stephen Harper's attempts to neuter the TV debates leading to next fall's election. His designated irritant, Kory Teneycke, says they'll refuse to appear on traditional "consortium" broadcasts run by the big networks. Instead they'll spread themselves on minor outlets like City. Hence, they say wittily, there'll be more exposure. Maybe they should book one on Tiny Talent Time on channel 11 in Hamilton.

Marois, Moses and the law of leadership

Photo: Parti Québécois/flickr

People of the Jewish faith around the world are observing Passover, the religious holiday that began at sunset Monday. It celebrates the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery, and their deliverance from the reign of the Egyptian Pharaohs. The Book of Exodus in the Old Testament describes Moses and his trials leading his people to the promised land of milk and honey.

Leadership is the first law of politics. The law says the exercise of responsibility and authority is going to take place. Leadership can be assigned by God -- Moses serves as a heroic example -- or by other means. In any event leaders emerge.

There's much to learn from Justin Trudeau's brief moment of obscenity at a charity boxing gala last weekend.
