O’Leary a Trump Wannabe: Cullen
Prince George, B.C. – Nathan Cullen couldn’t resist taking a few shots at Kevin O’Leary’s candidacy for the Conservative Party of Canada while chatting with northern reporters during a teleconference Wednesday.
“Well I have decided to start my own reality TV show because that seems to be the way to political leadership in North America,” joked the Skeena-Bulkley Valley NDP MP.
“No, I’ve never met Mr. O’Leary but I find it an imitation of what Mr. Trump was able to do in the U.S. It’s pretty weak, I think from his perch in his Boston home, Mr. O’Leary may be trying to sell a few more books.”
On a more serious note, he said he doubts he could win the leadership due to his inability to speak French.
“I would be surprised if Conservatives take up his call simply because he is unable to communicate with at least a quarter of the country if not more.”
Cullen added O’Leary’s decision to join the race hasn’t made him reconsider his decision last year to stay out of the NDP leadership race.
“No, I feel really solid with my decision. As we talk about electoral reform and other issues I feel more than occupied and I feel confident with the decision I made gosh, eight or nine months ago, now.”
