Case in point, the rocker will meet with Prime Minister Stephen Harper, NDP Leader Tom Mulcair and Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau following a session with several non-profit organizations in Ottawa on Monday.
Bono is heading to the Canadian capital for talks focused on aid in Africa, and is expected to attend question period following that meeting.
The meeting between Harper and Bono will take place Monday afternoon where the PM is expected to discuss his maternal and child health initiative.
Funny thing is that back in 2007, Harper refused to meet with Bono at a G8 summit in Germany , saying, “Meeting celebrities isn’t my shtick.”
Looks like things have changed!
Harper has since jammed with visiting musicians including Bryan Adams and Randy Bachman while the rockers visited 24 Sussex Drive.
Sources say that NDP leader Mulcair will meet with Bono after question period to discuss the rock star’s organization ONE, which aims to end extreme poverty.
Trudeau will also have a private meeting with the Irish celebrity.
Think anyone will ask for a pic/autograph?
