Just one day after President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney face off in the second presidential debate, former United States Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton will be bringing a message critical of Obama across Canada. Sponsored by Sun News Network and Spectre Live, Ambassador Bolton will be delivering a presentation entitled “The Global Consequences of a Second Obama Term” to audiences in two of Canada’s largest cities, Calgary and Toronto, alongside Sun News host Brian Lilley.
Spectre Live, the promotions company organizing this event, was the same company behind an event with former Vice President Dick Cheney last spring that was canceled by Cheney due to security concerns.
According to Spectre’s president, Ryan Ruppert, Bolton will be delivering a message that people need to hear.
“On the heels of Canada’s stand against Iran, multiple attacks on embassies and daily apologies from the U.S. government for the Western value of free speech, Ambassador Bolton plans to give a reality check for anyone interested in freedom,” Ruppert asserted in a media release. “Having taken on every rogue state from Sudan to Syria, the Ambassador’s call for a reversal of current U.S. foreign policy to avoid unspeakable disaster cannot be taken lightly.”
Despite Bolton’s proven track record in success on the international stage, not everyone is happy about his forthcoming visit to Canada.
Blogger Robert McBean felt lucky to be alive after eight years of George W. Bush’s administration, which included the appointment of John Bolton.
YouTube user Theobrothers found it “Sickening that this war criminal would be allowed to speak in Canada,” adding that this event “[proved] again that Canada no longer is run by Canadians and that we support evil as long as it’s American….”
Bolton’s Calgary address will take place on Wednesday October 17th at the University of Calgary, with a speech at Toronto’s Winter Garden Theatre the following day. More information, including online and telephone ticket purchasing instructions, can be found at BoltonCanada.com.
