    He is not, but it is not needed. Obviously they would run for a seat at the next available opportunity but it is a risk

    When John Tory won the leadership of the PCs in Ontario, a politician resigned her "safe seat" to allow him to run only to have him lose the seat and have to resign as Leader.

    There are 3 vacant seats
    Calgary Midnapore (Kenney's old seat) and Calgary Heritage (Harper's old seat) plus Ottawa Vanier which was Liberal.
    All are supposed to have elections fairly soon so not sure if nominations have closed (or the PC nominations at least).

    But he has said he won't seek a seat right away and may even continue filming Shark Tank after becoming leader

    He would have needed them for his nomination form so he clearly had enough

    O'Leary drops out of leadership race; will endorse Maxime Bernier


    Kevin O'Leary is dropping out of the Conservative leadership race and will endorse Maxime Bernier, multiple sources tell CBC News.
    The businessman and reality TV star is ending his campaign only hours before the last leadership debate in Toronto, and two days before party members can start casting their ballots.
    O'Leary is confident he could win the Conservative race, but now believes he cannot defeat Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the next election.
    He has cited his failure to gain traction in Quebec and his poor French-language skills as reasons for dropping out of the leadership race.
    O'Leary has spent the better part of his relatively short campaign — he entered the race in January — taking jabs at Trudeau, branding the prime minister "surfer dude" and calling his leadership a "disaster" for the country. He has also said Trudeau negotiating with U.S. President Donald Trump is like "Bambi versus Godzilla."
