  Kevin and Linda O'Leary sued for wrongful death by family of boating crash victim Kevin and Linda O'Leary sued for wrongful death by family of boating crash victim On Aug. 24, Linda O’Leary was driving a boat on Lake Joseph, Ont., when it collided with another boat near midnight. Gary Poltash, 64, from Florida and Susanne Brito, 48, from Uxbridge, Ont., died of injuries sustained in the crash. Three others were hospitalized but later released.

The Challenge of Leadership aims to improve your understanding of how human behaviour affects the functioning of an organisation. By focusing on conscious and unconscious behaviour, as well as rational and irrational action, you will learn to manage irrational and dysfunctional processes in your company.

While he didn't play, Johnny Manziel still got a first-hand look at the challenges facing his new team. Chris O ' Leary reports.

OTTAWA — Celebrity businessman and former Conservative leadership contender Kevin O'Leary has an April court date to challenge the constitutionality of campaign finance law.

O'Leary filed a lawsuit against Elections Canada last year over rules that impose a timeline on how long leadership contenders have to pay back their debts, and the fact they can't pay it off themselves. A court date has now been set for Apr. 15, 2020.

Despite election losses, Joe Byrne to stay on as NDP leader

  Despite election losses, Joe Byrne to stay on as NDP leader Joe Byrne may have finished fourth for the NDP in both the provincial and federal elections this year, but he said that has not discouraged him from continuing to be a “progressive, inclusive voice” for Islanders.About 40 members of the provincial New Democratic Party voted Saturday at their annual general meeting to keep Byrne as their leader.

O ’ Leary originally wanted to become a photographer, but attended university instead at his stepfather’s urging. In a video on failure, O ’ Leary cited a partnership with a cable conglomerate, for whom he proposed a consolidation of online dating services in order to sell them as a subscription service.

If you're ready to tackle challenges without relinquishing joy and the possibility of tomorrow with inspirational leadership , you've found the right place. John o ’ leary was expected to die. Today he teaches others how to truly live.

Until the law is fixed, he said, he'll never make another leadership run — but does think someone else needs to step up to replace current leader Andrew Scheer after he failed to win a majority government for the Conservatives in last month's vote.

"Andrew just can't lead," O'Leary told The Canadian Press in an interview.

"It just doesn't make sense to run him again, the same outcome will occur."

O'Leary said he's whittled down his nearly $500,000 worth of debt to under $160,000. Under the current rules he has to pay it off by next May.

O'Leary dropped out of the 2017 leadership race after dismal internal polling results, and threw his support behind Maxime Bernier, who finished second overall. Bernier later quit the Conservatives to form a splinter party, which failed to win any seats last month.

Quebec passes cannabis law that will raise legal age to 21

  Quebec passes cannabis law that will raise legal age to 21 People in Quebec will need to wait until they are 21 to legally purchase cannabis under a new law passed by the Coalition Avenir Québec government. When the age limit is raised from to 21 from 18 on Jan. 1, 2020, it will become the highest in the country.Elsewhere in Canada, cannabis is permitted at age 19, except in Alberta, where the legal age is 18. Lionel Carmant, the province's junior health minister, said the goal is to send a "clear message" about the government's priorities.

Leadership watch. The NDP fills out its field as Conservative frontrunner O ’ Leary faces questions about campaign finances . For a party that advocates diversity, and pushes gender parity within its party leadership , the race to succeed Mulcair as leader of the New Democratic Party is awfully white

Kevin O ’ Leary , the chairman of O ’ Leary Financial Group, probably best known to Canadians as a former investor panelist on the CBC show Dragons’ Den, said he is “Otherwise, you are completely oblivious to the challenges that the most important sector has in our country: those business leaders

Scheer won the leadership, O'Leary said, by managing to convince the membership he'd be able to get around this issue of his socially conservative views.

"We thought Scheer could say look, he could handle it and he could communicate it properly and he just didn't," O'Leary said.

O'Leary said the caucus members he has spoken to are angry, and are angling for immediate change. Scheer survived a vote Wednesday night that would have allowed his MPs to kick him out, but the full party membership will get a say in April when he will face a mandatory leadership at the party's convention in Toronto.

O'Leary said he remains a card-carrying member of the Conservative Party, and did cast a ballot for the Conservatives in last month's election.

But he said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau cannot remain in office, using the recent example of energy giant Encana choosing to relocate its headquarters to the U.S. as proof the Canadian economy is in danger.

Alberta election commissioner hands down additional $25K in fines in connection to UCP leadership investigation

  Alberta election commissioner hands down additional $25K in fines in connection to UCP leadership investigation The Office of the Election Commissioner has levied more than $211,723 in fines to date in relation to Calaway’s campaign.The Office of the Election Commissioner fined Robyn Lore a total of $17,000, including $9,000 for “collud(ing) with Jeff Callaway… to circumvent or attempt to circumvent a contribution limit”.

Mr. O ’ Leary , who dropped out of the Conservative leadership race before the vote, said he doesn’t consider the event to be a political fundraiser, because “Most people look at it and say that contest is over, O ’ Leary ’s not involved in politics anymore, but he has to play by the rules to pay this back, and

One challenge of ethical leadership is the ability to consistently adhere to the rules you establish for your business. The same applies if you're willing to bend the rules for convenience. For instance, if your organization is required to adhere to federal and state laws, your employees will react negatively

Conservative ideas like the national energy corridor could right the economic ship, O'Leary said, they just need a different captain.

Among the names he raised: Peter MacKay, a former cabinet minister who repeatedly insists he's not interested, and Lisa Raitt, another former leadership contestant who has also said she supports Scheer at present.

She lost her seat in last month's election because of Scheer, O'Leary said.

His refusal to march in gay pride parades means he'll never gain enough support among women in crucial ridings like Raitt's outside Toronto, and without them he can't win, O'Leary said.

While Scheer insists he can hold the personal views he does, and find other ways to champion the rights of Canada's LGBTQ community, O'Leary disagreed.

When you're asked to march, you march, O'Leary said.

"You don't say no, you say yes," he said. "You show respect. That is a must. It is not an option. You have to show respect as a leader. If you can't find that within yourself to do it, you can't lead."

O'Leary and his wife Linda are currently being sued in connection with a boat accident that killed two people last summer; O'Leary declined to comment on the litigation but called the accident tragic.
