Conservative leadership frontrunner Maxime Bernier says other candidates, including Kevin O'Leary, are “afraid” of free market policies that some regions or special interests won't like.Despite the perceived opposition, he'll still put them in his cabinet if he becomes prime minister, he told the National Post on Sunday.While opponents were attacking O'Leary for spending too much time in the U.S. or not being Conservative enough, they were hitting Bernier on his ideas about reforming federal equalization payments to provinces.
