‘Special night’: Barack Obama speaks in Halifax

Former U.S. President Barack Obama’s visit to Halifax for a speaking engagement at the Scotiabank Centre drew thousands of people downtown on Wednesday night.

“It’s a great moment, we are migrants and we never thought we’d have the opportunity to see such a great person,” Aziz Bojang told CBC News ahead of the event.

“We always see videos, hear news about him and he’s such a great inspiration,” said Gabriella Patel, who is originally from Kenya.

“Even back home, my mom is like you have to just take a picture with him or meet him, just gain something from this as much as you can.”
