He’ll be back.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, fresh off ending his term as governor of California, is coming to Canada for a speaking tour later this month.

The bodybuilder-turned-actor-turned-politician will give speeches in Calgary, Winnipeg and Toronto and Montreal.

The tour will begin with a lunch event at the Calgary Telus Convention Centre on Jan. 25, followed by a dinner at the Fairmont Hotel Winnipeg later that day.

Christian Darbyshire, who’s organizing the tour, said the topic of Schwarzenegger’s speech has not been determined.

He wouldn’t disclose Schwarzenegger’s speaking fee, however, ticket prices listed on Ticketmaster range from US$270 to US$427.

And Darbyshire said the event in Calgary could draw up to 2,000 people.

Schwarzenegger is set to speak at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on Jan. 26 and will give a lunch-hour speech to the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal on Jan. 27.

Schwarzenegger, whose last day in office as governor was Monday, visited Canada in 2007, with stops in Toronto, Ottawa and Vancouver.
