(Ottawa) Former Secretary of State and first woman to run as a major party candidate for President of the United States, Hillary Clinton, will headline the Liberal Party of Canada’s national convention on May 5.
Ms. Clinton will join Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland for a conversation at a conference on day two of the three-day event in Ottawa.
Mrs. Clinton first rose to national prominence during the presidential terms of her husband, Bill Clinton, in the 1990s, before launching her own political career as a senator from New York.
Ms. Clinton served as the 67th US Secretary of State during President Barack Obama’s first term before winning the Democratic nomination for the 2016 presidential election, which she lost to Donald Trump.
In 2021, the former politician endorsed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberals, calling him her friend and wishing “our progressive neighbors in Canada the best” just three days before the vote.
Mr. Trudeau will speak at the convention on May 4, but is expected to miss much of the event to travel to London for the coronation of King Charles on May 6.
