Former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton are in Toronto for a private audience at the Metro Convention Centre.

The former presidents, both 62, will spent 90 minutes discussing global and domestic challenges facing Canada and the U-S.

The event was private but we followed their conversation through Twitter updates. Take a look at some of the commentary:
