Allez Les Aigles! NDP Leader Tom Mulcair to take in baseball game in Trois-Rivieres

On the eve of the Canada Day long weekend, the lone representative on the ministerial good news circuit is Public Works Minister Rona Ambrose, who drops by Vancouver-based MOSAIC with fresh support for what the notice describes as "a project ... to end violence committed in the name of so called 'honour'".

Back on the Hill, reporters will make their way to the National Press Theatre for a "technical briefing" on the status of the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy, with any and all information revealed to be attributed, as per the instructions in the advisory, to "senior government officials."

Meanwhile, NDP Leader Tom Mulcair will cheer on the Trois-Rivieres Aigles as they take on the New Jersey Jackals in a "baseball match" at Fernand Bedard Stadium. 

Finally, a summer schedule programming note: Your intrepid OotD chronicler and general all-purpose blogger is off next week, so expect posting to be light to non-existent.
