Bono: “The World Needs More Canadas”

The world needs more Bonos!

U2 frontman Bono was at a summit with PM Justin Trudeau in Montreal recently to raise money to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

He had some nice things to say about us:

“At a time when these kinds of multilateral initiatives are receiving so much chill, it’s just great to see Canada leading on this. You’ve always been ahead of the curve in realizing we can do more if the international community works together.”

“In the past few years, I’ve spent a lot of time here and  in Canada, rehearsing with U2, wandering around, indeed hitch-hiking on a few occasions. The more time I spend, the more I agree with my younger self — that world needs more Canada, the world needs more Canadas.”
