Right Honourable Jean Chrétien

World leaders and world beaters took turns speaking with George in the red chair this week. 

In an exclusive interview, the Right Honourable Jean Chrétien spoke about how the world has changed during his political career and explained a difference of opinion he has with Neil Young. Musician Angelique Kidjo told George what it was like being in the presence of the late Nelson Mandela. And the Canadian Olympic Team's flag-bearer Hayley Wickenheiser reminded everyone of the intense rivalry with the U.S. women's hockey team that'll be renewed at Sochi.

Filmmakers Jason Reitman and Jeff Barnaby were also on the show. Reitman talked about Labor Day with George, while Barnaby discussed his debut feature Rhymes For Young Ghouls and contemporary First Nations issues.

Check out the photo gallery above for some of their memorable words, and watch their respective interviews below.
