"We are very excited to welcome President Clinton to the Ontario Economic Summit," says Len Crispino, President & CEO of the Ontario of Commerce. "President Clinton is a world-renowned leader and it is only fitting that he join Ontario's leaders who gather at the Summit every year to discuss this province's future. We are also very pleased to be able to open up this opportunity to the public and anyone wishing to hear President Clinton speak."
