Rt. Hon. Brian Mulroney & Mr. Will-W.
Before he was more known as the Father of Ben Mulroney, Host of CTV's Entertainment Daily eTalk, Rt. Hon. Brian Mulroney was our Country's 18th Prime Minister, leading the Progressive Conservative Party through a decade of Celebration and Decline from 1983 through 1993.

Since Retirement, Mulroney has kept himself busy penning his top-selling Memoirs 1939-1993 released in 2007, while acting still as a Partner for the Law Firm, Ogilvy Renault.  He also sits on the Board of Directors for at least seven Corporations including Quebecor and AOL Latin America, Inc.  And did I mention he's a proud Grandfather of six?

In what was a crazy day of coincidence which earlier saw me crossing paths with the legendary Larry King in Yorkville, I ran into none other than Mulroney in front of Starbucks as he was out and about for a stroll.   

Getting a chance to chat with him briefly, he told me he needed a breath of fresh air as he was in the middle of a business meeting at his Hotel.  After exchanging niceties, he headed off and I then realized that I should have gotten a Photo with him.  I mean, how often do you get to cross paths with a World Leader?  Catching up with him, kindly Mulroney obliged to my request and took a Photo together with me.  

On his way back from his walk he asked me, "How did the Photo turn out?" with a big smile on his face.  The former Prime Minister of Canada - a lovely Man.  Confirmed.

I have to call Mom and Dad first thing tomorrow!!!  They are going to freak!
