President Obama’s pick to be ambassador to Canada is fellow Chicagoan Bruce Heyman, a Goldman Sachs partner in the Windy City, mega-fundraiser and member of the Obama campaign’s national finance committee, CBC News in Canada reported Wednesday.

Heyman runs a private wealth fund at Goldman Sachs, and his areas of responsibility include parts of Canada, the network reported, noting that he and his wife raised more than $1 million for Obama. He would replace David Jacobson, who’s also from Chicago.
