Almost U.S. President Bernie Sanders Is Coming To Toronto

For anyone who followed the Trump vs. Hillary Presidential race can probably recognize the name Bernie Sanders. He spent the very first half of the campaign season vying for the role of the Democratic U.S. presidential nomination. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on where you stand) he lost to Hillary Clinton. 

Despite being 76 years old,  Bernie seems to have a talent for connecting with the youth around the world and joining in on movements that matter to them. The now Senator of Vermont is heading to Toronto to discusses "Medicare for All" and will be speaking at the University of Toronto, discussing what the U.S. can learn from Canada's single-payer health care system

Unlike Barack Obama's recent visit, admission will be free. The event will be located at U of T's Convocation Hall on October 29th, at 11 AM. Doors open 90 minutes prior to the event's start, and guests must be seated by 10:45 AM.

There will be no re-entry, no flash photography, and no food or drinks allowed while in the building.
