The Toronto Raptors practice facility will be getting a pair of special visitors on Saturday.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, along with Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, Ahmed Hussen, will participate in a basketball clinic at the newly renamed OVO Athletic Centre in Toronto, according to a media release from the Prime Minister’s Office. Local youth will be on hand, as will Raptors President Masai Ujiri.
The event takes place at 2:10 pm ET, not long after Trudeau and Hussen participate in a roundtable with business leaders to discuss youth opportunities development.
Trudeau is no stranger to the Raptors, having spent time with Canada’s lone NBA team on a few occasions in recent years.
