O'Leary Takes A Pass

Conservative Leadership candidate Kevin O'Leary says he will sit out tonight's debate in Edmonton because of problems with the format. Under the existing rules, all 14 candidates will be given time on the stage to answer each question, and O'Leary believes that leaves no time for ideas to be properly explained. The move is drawing criticism from his opponents, some of whom claim they were never formally approached by the party about making a change. Instead of the debate, O'Leary says that he will hold an event where he can directly speak to party members.
