Barack Obama to visit Ottawa in May

Former U.S. president Barack Obama is set to visit Ottawa next month for a question-and-answer session. The event, hosted by the progressive think-tank Canada 2020, will be at the Canadian Tire Centre on May 31. Canada 2020 chairman Tom Pitfield says Obama is a "generation-defining political leader" and an inspiration to millions of people around the world. Tickets for the event start at $75. Since Obama's presidency ended in January 2017, he's become a big name on the paid speaking circuit, and appeared at a similar event in Calgary in March. In 2016, as president, he addressed Canada's Parliament and received a standing ovation and cheers in the House of Commons.
