Al Gore, former Nobel Prize nominee and Oscar winner for An Inconvenient Truth, has arranged the side trip at the request of three students at University of Victoria.

Organizers are seeking corporate donations and charging $199-plus ticket fees to cover costs, including Gore’s rumored fee of $175,000 US.

Gore was vice-president to Bill Clinton for two terms. He ran for president in 2000 but lost a hotly contested race to George W. Bush. He now dedicates much of his time to lecturing about the perils of global warming.
