Six Canadians are among the powerful group of business leaders, academics and media invited to this year’s highly secretive Bilderberg conference, according to the official guest list.
The annual conference, which starts Thursday in Hertfordshire, U.K., is a private, off-the-record event where participants can freely share thoughts about issues of mutual concern to Europe and North America, according to the group’s website.
The high-profile, invitation-only list this year includes such household names as Henry Kissinger, a former U.S. Secretary of State; David Petraeus, the U.S. army general who retired as head of the CIA amid a sex scandal; and Jeff Bezos, founder and chief executive of Amazon.com.
Among the Canadians are Loblaw Cos. Ltd. executive chairman Galen Weston; Indigo Books & Music Inc. chief executive officer Heather Reisman; and Ed Clark, president and chief executive officer of TD Bank Group.
