Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.
And this also happens to be the 500th interview, and I’m pleased to have on again, Warren Kinsella. He is one of my favourite guests, appearing on here from the beginning nearly six years ago now. He is a Liberal and served former prime minister Jean Chretien for many years. I don’t envision myself ever voting Liberal, but Kinsella is a guy I have great admiration for. He’s loyal, and I just admire that quality. He maintains one of the country’s best read political websites at www.warrenkinsella.com. He is the president and co-founder of the Daisy Consulting Group, and the founder of a punk rock band, Shit From Hell. He’s a columnist, frequent political commentator and not infrequent author. His last book was The War Room, a great political read, as was his book from a few years now, Kicking Ass in Canadian Politics—one of my favourite books ever. I’m pleased to welcome back to the Planta: On the Line program, Warren Kinsella; Good morning, Mr. Kinsella.
