Barack Obama set to speak in Calgary this afternoon


The 44th President of the United States is in Calgary today, on his ‘A Conversation with President Barack Obama’ tour.

Obama launched the Canadian leg of his talks in Winnipeg last night to a sold out crowd.

At Monday nights tour in Winnipeg, Obama spoke about the dangers in the United States and around the world with politics being driven by passions disconnected from facts.

While never mentioning current U.S. President Donald Trump, Obama says he’s worried if there was a major crisis today, the response may not follow common sense or practicality.

Obama also spoke about Justin Trudeau and former prime minister Stephen Harper.

Today`s conversation with Barack Obama starts at Noon at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
