For years the Clinton’s have been involved with what goes on up north. Yes my friends they are well known in Canada. Maybe some of our friends from Canada will comment. Here’s a list of a few of their connections. International Free Press.
The Canadian connections
Bill and Hillary Clinton have deep ties with key players in Corporate Canada. Here are some notable executives with links to the couple, many of whom are current or former business associates of Frank Giustra.

- B. STRONACH
- FRANK’S FRIENDS:MINING
- FRANK’S FRIENDS:INVESTING
That’s a list of a who’s who in Canada. So why haven’t we heard more from this? I myself never realized how tied in Bill and Hillary were. Or should I say are. Also from the International Free Press.
Beyond the charity, the Canadian business establishment also played a not-insignificant role in the building of the Clintons’ personal fortune after Bill Clinton’s two terms as president were over.
Though Hillary Clinton was mocked for her claim that she and her husband were “dead broke” upon leaving the White House, the couple was grappling with large debts, such as millions of dollars in unpaid bills from Mr. Clinton’s endless legal fights, including his impeachment in 1998. While Ms. Clinton embarked on her own political career as a U.S. senator in 2000, her husband set about repairing their household finances and cashing in on his postpresidential life, mostly through speech making and book writing that proved extraordinarily lucrative.
Since 2001, the couple has pocketed $117.3-million in speaking fees. Most of that was earned by Bill Clinton and more than 10 per cent of it came from events in Canada, usually sponsored by big-name Canadian companies.Skip ahead to see a full list of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s Canadian speeches – and how much they got paid
