U2 singer Bono was an unconventional guest speaker at the Liberal party’s leadership convention in Toronto on Friday, lauding Canada’s history of foreign aid but adding that it must do much more. “I’m a fan of Canada,” Bono told the cheering crowd. “I believe the world needs more Canada.” Bono added, “It’s not just that everybody likes Canada.
