With yesterday's emergency caucus meeting out of the way, there's just one more procedural box to tick off before Nycole Turmel can be referred to as Interim NDP Leader without an asterisk: the approval of the party's federal council, members of which will gather at the Lord Elgin Hotel later this morning to make it official. The meeting is expected to run for several hours, but should wrap up around noon, at which point Turmel will, for the first time since her abrupt ascension to the role, take questions from the media.
Meanwhile, after all but vanishing from the public eye over the last few weeks, the prime minister holds one of his trademark mystery photo ops in his Centre Block office -- cameras only, so no questions and almost certainly no liveblogging. Rumour has it that he may be revealing the name of the new Lieutenant Governor for Prince Edward Island, but as yet, that is unconfirmed: they're a coy bunch at PMO communications, after all. In any case, I'll keep you posted!
Hit the jump for the rest.
