WASHINGTON (AP) _ President Bush will travel to Toronto on July 9 to attend the all-star baseball game and confer with Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney on the economic summit of seven industrialized nations, the White House said Tuesday.

Bush will attend the Major League Baseball All-Star Game with Mulroney.

The two leaders also will discuss the July 15-17 summit meeting in London and hold a news conference before Bush returns to Washington.

Bush is consulting with U.S. allies in advance of the summit in view of the fact that Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev will also attend and is expected to seek economic assistance from the summit partners.
