Reform Party founder Preston Manning says leadership is a crucial part of harnessing populist movements and preventing them from becoming dangerous.

"Populism is like a wildcat — or a rogue oil or gas well — where there's so much pressure from the bottom, it blows the platform, it blows oil all over the place. It could catch fire, it could be a very dangerous type of thing," Manning told Rosemary Barton, host of CBC News Network's Power & Politics.

Manning said the best way to deal with a rogue well is to drill a relief line, which has to be deep enough to release pressure but not so deep that it blows up itself.
