Barack Obama to speak in Toronto this month

Sep 6 2017, 8:08 am

Former US president Barack Obama is coming to Toronto this month.

According to The Star, Obama will be in town to particpate in a lunchtime event at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre that will be hosted by Canada 2020, an Ottawa based think-tank.

Obama was just in Montreal this past June, where he addressed climate change and nationalism in front of a sold out crowd.

The former POTUS also made headlines earlier today when he posted an open letter in reaction to the current White House administration’s move to rescind DACA – Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals – a program brought to life during Obama’s tenure.

It is believed that Obama will take questions from a moderator after his talk, leaving room for him to comment on his predecessor – something the 44th President appears more and more willing to do as of late.

If you’re thinking you’ll be in the room to rub elbows with Obama, however, you might want to think again. The Star is reporting that “individual tickets are not available, but tables of 10 will be sold starting Tuesday, at $10,000 a pop.”

So ya, might want to settle for a live stream.

Still, BO is in TO. Something worth getting excited about this September.
