Kevin O’Leary

Montreal-born self-made entrepreneur, television personality and right-wing loudmouth who has been the presiding spirit—and primary benefitee—of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s move to save itself from Stephen Harper by transforming itself into Fox North, a publicly-funded television obsessed with celebrity and business propaganda. O’Leary got rich by selling a software company he and a couple of university buddies created in a garage, acquired a quasi-educational television channel and flipped it to the Mattel corporation, and now is among the continent’s biggest landlords to those who are forced to live in temperature-controlled storage facilities.
