U2 lead singer Bono is set to meet with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, NDP leader Tom Mulcair, and Liberal leader Justin Trudeau after a session with several non-profit organizations in Ottawa on Monday, according to CBC News.
The trip was confirmed by Stuart Hickox, the founder of the non-profit social marketing organization One Change. Bono will be participating in talks focusing on aid in Africa. He is also expected to stay for a question period that will be held after the meeting.
The Prime Minister’s office has confirmed that Harper will be discussing maternal and child health initiatives. He will discuss the ONE Campaign with Bono.
Harper previously refused to meet with Bono at a G8 summit in Germany. “Meeting celebrities isn’t my shtick,” Harper said.
U2 is currently on tour for their iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour. They are currently playing dates in Montreal.
