Ambassador to Canada, Bruce Heyman, returning to Chicago
January 17th, 2017
Bruce Heyman, the Chicago businessman who’s been serving as U.S. ambassador to Canada, is returning to Chicago with his wife,Vicki.
Heyman and other envoys around the world were given curt orders to pack up by Jan. 20. Usually, there’s a transition period that allows time for a new administration to name ambassadors before the previous folks depart. But these aren’t usual political times, so Heyman steps down Wednesday.
He and his wife will leave Ottawa and travel a few months before returning to their home in Lincoln Park.
“We consider Chicago home and look forward to our return,” he told me in an email exchange. Before that, he says, “we’re going to take some time reflecting.”
