Canadians desperate to see former USA president Barack Obama speak in Montreal were asked to pay hundreds of dollars for a ticket to the sold-out event.

The two discussed their commitment to developing and bringing young leaders to take action, per the tweets, though we also wonder if perhaps they touched on topics like kayaking, paddle boarding, kite surfing and other water activities. "Thanks @BarackObama for your visit & insights tonight in my hometown", Trudeau tweeted.

Barack Obama might be out of the White House, but he just can't quit his pal, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

His 70-minute keynote speech to the Montreal Board of Trade covered various topics, including climate change, after President Donald Trump pulled out of the Paris climate accord last week.

During Obama's presidency, the United States was one of the 195 countries around the world to sign up to the 2015 agreement.

During his speech, Mr Obama commended the Paris climate agreement and expressed disappointment that the United States has withdrawn. "We're going to have to replace fear with hope".

Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn turned over about 600 pages of documents Tuesday to the Senate intelligence committee as part of its investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election, according to a congressional aide.

Although he said it was human nature for those who feel left behind by government and a changing world to find authoritarian alluring, Obama stressed that "it is important to remember that the world has gone through similar moments".

Obama also said that the forces of nationalistic nature and economic uncertainty, which was created by advancements in technology have now made people to seek the leadership of "strong men".

Souza's Instagram feed in the early months of the Trump administration has been used cleverly to contrast Obama's appeal with Trump's erratic and sometimes petty outbursts.
