Hillary Rodham Clinton is in Montreal to speak at an event organized by the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal this evening at 6:30.

Clinton, 66, is a likely candidate for the Democratic nomination in the next U.S. presidential election.

She was the 67th Secretary of State of the United States from 2009 to 2013. She was also Senator of the State of New York from 2001 to 2009, and in that capacity, she visited more than 80 countries as an advocate of human rights, democracy and equal opportunities for women and girls around the world.

Clinton, the wife of former U.S. President Bill Clinton, fought Barack Obama in the Democratic nomination in 2008.

Michel Leblanc, the president of the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal, first announced Clinton’s visit to Montreal in October via Twitter.
