Obama Loves Canada So Much That He’s Coming Back For The Third Time This Year

It is no secret that Canadians have a soft spot for the Obamas - in fact, we downright cherish them. From the former president's bromance with Justin Trudeau to Michelle Obama's sold out Canadian shows, our love for the Obamas couldn't be more obvious. Now, it seems that the feelings might be mutual. Barack Obama is coming to Canada once again this May, marking what will be his third visit in just three months.

The beloved former president will pay a visit to Ottawa next month for a Q&A. The event, which will take place Ottawa's Canadian Tire Centre on May 31st, will be hosted by the progressive organization Canada 2020. Tickets for the question-and-answer session are supposedly set to sell for $75, according to Canada 2020.

Obama made his first visit to Canada this year back in March at Winnipeg's Bell MTS Place. Obama spoke to a packed house of 13,500 Canadians that night, covering a range of political issues. 

A day after his appearance in Winnipeg, Obama visited Calgary's Saddledome where the former president once again sat down in conversation with thousands of Canadians. Here's a clip of Obama addressing the Calgary crowd.

Both Michelle and Barack Obama have made names for themselves in the paid speaking business. The couple, who left the White House back in 2017, first kept a low-profile following the end of Obama's run. However, they eventually began making public appearances again and have since re-established themselves within the public sphere. 

Michelle Obama has also made several appearances in Canada following an extension to her highly successful book tour. Michelle appeared in Vancouver on March 21st and Edmonton on March 22nd and is set stop by Montreal on May 3rd and Toronto on May 4th.

Obama, the 44th President of the United States, assumed office way back in November of 2008. He has since gone on to become one of the most influential leaders in US history.
