@tommyThis week 5 years ago (Jan 27 2012) @jonathanroth and I drove a minivan up to Whistler, BC to meet entrepreneur, investor and TV personality Kevin O’Leary at the Chateau Whistler Hotel for an interview for Cambridge House International.
O’Leary was there giving a speech. His agent Jeff Jacobson had introduced us a week before to suggest the interview.
I remember being surprised that O’Leary had spent time apprenticing under Don Cherry, the famous Canadian NHL Hockey personality. O’Leary had honed his skill as a master persuader over time, starting with the lessons from Cherry.
O’Leary was a communicator on another level, like Cherry, and like Trump.
“The equity markets have done nothing in 14 years…. [whispers] nothing,” O’Leary said, followed up by, ”I’m a debt guy, I love debt.”
The point is, showmanship is succeeding in society.
What does it all mean?

@murat@jonathanroth and I had a great dinner at Giardino in Vancouver last night. JR was an outstanding host!
Newsletter writer and Bloomberg View columnist Jared Dillian, CIBC’s Alfried Chien and 60 Minutes producer Peter Klein also joined us.
Murat and Peter were BFFs, which upset me because I wanted to be BFFs with Peter!
We discussed journalism, Canadian housing and other topics. Dillian is convinced Canada is a bubble about to pop.
Everyone from the outside looking in always says that (name your pundit, name your year). Vancouver itself has always been an expensive market, and supply remains tight, I told him. We’ll see.
For decades, Giardino has been a favourite restaurant among Vancouver’s finance crowd. Canaccord founder Peter Brown and Fiore Group’s Frank Giustra enjoyed the place so much, they became partners in its latest iteration.
At Giardino recently, Giustra sat down with Terry David Mulligan, chef Umberto Menghi, and Painted Rock Winery’s John Skinner to talk about their love of food and wine. Skinner is a retired venture broker, trader and company builder who parlayed penny stocks into an incredible winery. Giustra did the same with the world’s best olive oil producer.
You'll hear about Giustra's favourite tomatoes, why the olive oil business is a race against time, and the new joint venture of these friends and collaborators for the past thirty years.
