In case you didn’t hear, Barack Obama was in Toronto today.

The former US president spoke at a lunchtime event at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre hosted by Canada 2020, an Ottawa based think-tank.

Thousands attended today’s event in Toronto as Obama, including Toronto Mayor John Tory.

“No surprise Barack Obama chose Toronto as venue for a speech about tolerance, leadership & engagement,” said Tory. “We have the eyes of the world on us when it comes to diversity, inclusion and innovation.”

Obama also sat for an on-stage discussion following his speech.

Since most of us couldn’t be there, check out some photos from the event.
